    "Moment of Discovery" Bambi Limited Edition Cel #72/250 (Walt Disney, 2002). The animated movie Bambi is known for its stunning hand-painted production backgrounds. In 2002, Walt Disney released a special hand-painted limited edition cel of Bambi entitled "Moment of Discovery." Original production drawings were taken from the Disney Archives from Scenes 12 and 13/Sequence 2.2 and used to hand-paint the cel at the Disney Ink and Paint Department located on the studio lot. Instead of a print background, a Fine Art Gicleé background on deckled edge acid-free paper was made at American Atelier of Gardena, California to give this a unique look. The Fine Art Gicleé paper background was floated in the mat. The edition of this unique piece was 250; this is number 72. A Disney seal is on the cel and Disney COA is on back of frame. Frame is 26" x 31" with a mat opening of 17" x 21". Unusually large image of Bambi measuring 8". One of the most visually appealing Disney hand-painted Limited Edition cels we have seen. Frame is sold as-is. Artwork condition is Very Good.
