113 years ago, Walt Disney was
born. While the man who inspired Walt Disney
World never had a chance to see its completion,
one of his favorite artists, Mary Blair, played
a huge part in the art design in the middle of
the Contemporary Resort.
In the center of of the fourth floor, guests
can lay their eyes upon a 90 foot tall mural which helps provide the
name for the area: The Grand Canyon Concourse. While the mural shows
off the art style that has made Blair famous in the Disney
community, one part of the mural has an interesting detail waiting
for guests to discover.
While looking at the wall that runs parallel to the
monorail track, you can find an image on the top right corner that
most people won't notice at first glance:
Do you see it? Here guests can find two mountain
goats, but the one on the left has an interesting detail added to
it: a fifth leg! That's right, one of the goats has five legs! Why
is that? While Mary Blair's artwork is practically perfect in every
day, she decided to add a fifth leg to this goat to symbolize the
fact that nothing is actually perfect.
