Description
This skillfully crafted, hand-painted sculpture originates from an animation maquette in The Walt Disney Archives; the production molds for this piece are made from a digital three-dimensional scan. The Fantasia elephant maquette reproduced for this edition was on display at the end of 1966 on the north windowsill of Walt Disney's formal office on the Burbank Studios lot. Why does the paint coloration on Jiminy Cricket, Pinocchio and the Elephant from Fantasia look different than the other products from these films? The Walt Disney Archives Collection hand-matched the colors to the vintage moquettes using the Disney paint palette to make this collection look like the originals would have looked when initially created. There are 3,800 paint colors in the Disney paint palette. Those initial paints used for Disney films by the Ink and Paint Department were created by chemists on the Disney Studio lot. Many of the paints from those early films were ground from natural pigments and refined until they were the consistency of a velvety smooth cream.
