Maleficent looks fabulous in this Art Deco inspired sculpture from the Disney Showcase Collection. She is adorned with three faux gems, a golden rod and gold stitch work on her cape done in the art deco style.
Disney Villains come to life in the lavish designs of the popular Art Deco visual arts style. Characterized by delineated geometric patterns, symmetry, rich colors, bold shapes and gorgeous ornamentation, Art Deco draws upon the multi-cultural heritage of Egypt, Greece, Africa, East Asia and the Americas. Originating in the 1920s and 1930’s, a time when Walt Disney started the Walt Disney Studios, Art Deco fashion gave expression to women eager to exert individuality and independence in the modern era. Maleficent’s shimmering feathered cape is accented in golden stitches inspired by 1930’s Art Deco fashion. Opulent and elegant, her period jewelry includes three faux gems on her ring finger, head dress and broach.
