    Description

    Bible Storyland "Dead Sea Boat Ride" Concept Hand-Embellished Print (1960). Can you imagine the initial meetings on deciding what rides would be in each section of Bible Storyland? This piece illustrates a proposed ride for the "Israel" section of the park, "The Dead Sea Boat Ride." In the Bible, the Dead Sea was a place of refuge for King David. This is a great Bruce Bushman hand-colored brown-line concept drawing for this proposed ride, with riders in the boat glimpsing a ruined city beneath the salty water. In the bottom right is printed "Dead Sea Boat Ride Bible Storyline Feb. 3 1960 Bushman" with initials. By the dating of the plans, this seems to be one of the last completed proposed ride drawings for the park. Pastels on paper measuring 24.25" x 19.5". Minor handling and edge wear. Fine condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
