Perched precariously atop a ragged rocks grotto, a mirage of collage chateau sets the tone for what lies beneathnticing blue waters where magical seahorses swim with humans. A diver has leaped from the stairs above to the sea below.
Named because it depicts a busy city scene, except this is a completely Baroque town! Several buildings from Venice, Florence, Paris and more, are combined to form extravagant piazzas. Let your eye travel and spot all the details...
The hounds of love, welcome you to view their art collection, in a vast richly decorated hall.
THE WAITING ROOM
Take the grand stairs up past the mammoth statues and lavish gold doorway, out to the vacant waiting room.
An imagined young royal is practising her guitar in her decadently opulent room, her dog is listening on the bed, while her guard is watching from the doorway.
a royal rescue: the sinking
High drama on dangerous seas: an imagined young royal is being rescued from a sinking ship by a scuba diver. Books, chairs and debris are floating at peril as the ship sinks.
topping the tower
He climbs a tall ladder with crystals on his shoulder, to take to the top of the leaning tower. Watch your step!
Have you ever seen such a posh cafe? The most sumptuous display of cakes and desserts under a gilded ceiling. If only you could get the attention of the staff!

The manor house seems deserted... a lone lion pervades the scene of discarded sun chairs. Where is everyone?
THE LIBRARY OF KNOWLEDGE
The owl of knowledge visits the Medieval library.
Birds with jewels in their beaks, fly high in the ceiling sky.
VERSAILLES ROLLER RINK
We finish with a super fun animated collage. Let's turn the ceiling upside down and roller skate in disco heaven over the precious Versailles paintings.
