In A Few Weeks Or Months Time,

museums and other places of interest will start opening, 

 so families can start enjoying the many objects on display, but here is the thing, have you insured your kids? why? I hear you ask, well against this happening, photograph CGTN/CFP, presented as a gift to the Shanghai Museum of Glass in 2016 to mark its fifth anniversary, Miguel Arribas’ record-setting masterpiece was created using around 500,000 glass loops, weighed 60 kilograms and featured spires made with 24-karat gold. It was made up of approximately 30,000 individual parts and weighed over 60 kilograms, its worth was estimated at around 450,000 yuan ($65,000), Spanish glassblower Miguel Arribas spent around 500 hours making the world’s largest glass-blown sculpture, a whimsical castle fashioned after Cinderella’s castle, 

 I think you can see where I am going with this, last weekend, the Shanghai Museum of Glass announced that Arribas’ Fantasy Castle exhibit had been broken into pieces after two children accidentally knocked it down while playing inside the museum, photograph CGTN/CFP, according to sources from the museum, the unfortunate accident occurred on May 30th, when two children visiting the facility with their family crossed the belt barrier while playing and toppled the sculpture. The fall caused the main spire to shatter and caused different degrees of damage to other sections,

photograph the Shanghai Glass Museum, who has already contacted Arribas about attempting to repair the sculpture, but due to the travel restrictions related to the Covid-19 pandemic, they are currently unable to travel to China, the children’s parents have allegedly apologized for the incident and promised to take responsibility for the necessary repairs, as an aside Miguel Arribas is the co-founder of Arribas Bros. glassware, which focuses on glass Disney-themed souvenirs and memorabilia, I just hope the parents have deep pockets, or have insured their kids against this sort of thing happening!
