    Description

    Disneyland Walt Disney "Partners" Bust Bronze Statue (Walt Disney, c. 1980s-90s). An extraordinary sculpture of Walt Disney! He has been called "the most significant figure in graphic arts since Leonardo." Disney is noted for being a successful storyteller, a hands-on film producer, and a popular showman. He and his "Nine Old Men" created the world's most popular animated films and cartoon shorts; not to mention the one creation that many consider Disney's alter-ego, Mickey Mouse. And there was that little orange grove in Southern California that he converted into the number-one vacation destination, too! Here's a rare prototype cast from the original WED Imagineering mold for the famed "Partners" statue, mounted on a wooden base. Featured in the Hub at Disneyland and at Disney theme parks around the world, "Partners" was sculpted by Disney Legend Blaine Gibson and depicts Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse, hand in hand. A large and heavy piece measuring 13" tall with a base size of 7.75" x 7.75", the statue shows little handling wear. An exceptionally rare find, the piece is in Very Good condition.
