    Castle in the Sky Sheeta Color Model/Publicity Cel (Studio Ghibli, 1986). Created for the image seen at the 1:02:05 mark of Hayao Miyazaki's fantasy adventure film Castle in the Sky, this is a lovely hand-inked and hand-painted color model/publicity cel of the protagonist Sheeta from the heartbreaking moment when she is saved by a robot's self-sacrifice. The first film officially produced by Studio Ghibli, Castle in the Sky draws inspiration from Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels, and it is considered an influential classic in the popular steampunk genre. This rare piece captures an unforgettable scene, and it is numbered A2 in the upper right corner. The image nearly fills the 11.5" x 8.25" cel, and the piece is taped to a white board. The cel shows minor handling, and the condition overall is Very Good.
