Fantasia Elephant Maquette

Product Description
$99.00 USD
The Walt Disney Archives collection celebrates the rich history and majestic artistry of the Walt Disney Company, revisiting seldom seen original treasures, from animation maquettes to archival stationery. Established in 1938, the Character Model Department at Walt Disney Studios employed sculptors to create three-dimensional figures known as maquettes. These animator models would expose crucial angles, reveal the play of light and shadow, and clarify issues of perspective, allowing artists to study each character in a brand new way. Released in 1940, "Fantasia" was Disney's third animated feature film. An entrancing blend of classical music and animation, the film originated as a single cartoon short intended to boost the popularity of Mickey Mouse. The addition of Philadelphia Orchestra conductor Leopold Stokowski and mounting production costs set the groundwork for it to become the timeless masterpiece we know today. The elephant reproduced for this limited-edition sculpture was formerly on display in Walt Disney's office. To replicate the vintage coloration for this limited edition reproduction, paint swatches from the Disney paint palette were hand-matched to the originals. Certificate of verification and storycard are included. About Us: Enesco is committed to bringing joy every day.
