TULSA, Oklahoma -- The Chefs at Tulsa's Inverness Village unveiled a holiday masterpiece Wednesday.

It's a one-of-a-kind ginger bread house display. There are three houses, each about three feet tall.

One is a traditional style house, the second has a fairy tale theme. The third is a replica of Michaelangelo's Sistine Chapel.

"Has the paintings of Michaelangelo created inside of it. And what we did is, we created those upside down, and we put them there, so we actually cut the Sistene Chapel in half," said Omar Galban, Inverness Village Executive Chef.

The houses are decorated with candy canes, gumdrops, marshmellows, and several other items.

Galban said he used about 500-600 pounds of gingerbread and about 200 pounds of icing and powdered sugar for the project and took about 120 hours to complete.

The houses will be auctioned off. The money goes to the Sapulpa women's shelter.
