The historic Kaufhaus, found in Freidburg, was built in 1520 and is honored with a near direct copy in Epcot. Despite color differences, the Disney World version is pretty true to form. Among the flourishes are three sculptures of German rulers sculpted by Sixt Von Staufen between 1520 and 1531.
Emperor Ferdinand I, 1503-1564
Emperor Charles V, 1500-1558
King Philip I, 1478-1506
Little details like this continue to surprise me. Despite the fact that I've spent countless days at Epcot I still manage to find new wonderful themed areas. These sculptures didn't HAVE to be in place, but the lengths at which the Kaufhaus was recreated is appreciated by all Epcot fans.
