    Hercules Hydra and Hercules Limited Edition Cel #21/54 (Walt Disney, 1997). Extremely rare, hand-painted, limited edition 16 field cel of Hercules battling the Hydra, originally only available to Disney employees. The cel is created from Sequence 11.5, Scene 68 in which Hercules battles for his life, after being tricked into freeing the Hydra from her underground prison. This is #21 of only 54 created by the Disney Ink and Paint Department for feature film crew members only. A Walt Disney Feature Animation seal is on the cel and the original Letter of Authenticity is included. These 1990s employees-only cels are very coveted by collectors, especially since these films had no actual production cels in them. The Hydra is an amazing 15" long! In Fine condition.
