Olszewski's HAUNTED MANSION Gallery of Light Boxes

My trip last fall to a Downtown Disney Orlando art gallery went from being very cool to being ultra mind blowing when I noticed a small Olszewski Gallery of Light display in one section of the store. Once you see the pictures below you'll know why, and at the time I knew that eventually I would own the two pieces I wanted the most out of the wonderful selection on hand: Disney Haunted Mansion miniature light boxes, one from Madame Leota's seance parlor, and the other featuring the 3 ghostly hitchhikers that sit on your lap as you exit the ride. Each box features small resin sculptures and is about 5 inches high/deep, highlighted by a highly detailed 3D layering scene and atmospheric on/off LED lighting with hidden button on the front (in the leaves)-- it's like owning an actual real View Master scene in a box!👻 They're incredibly hard to photograph unfortunately, so these pictures definitely do not do them justice, but take it from me they are truly amazing.

See more from the collection HERE!  (FYI: Both boxes are sold out too, so try eBay!)

Even with a smartphone and Google glasses the images can't compare to the real thing.

The mere word 'artist' doesn't do justice to Mr. Olszewski's work.

Thank you so much for posting this.

I wonder why these aren't sold in the Haunted Mansion gift shop. Very cool. Mind if I ask what they set you back?
