    Sleeping Beauty Maleficent and Diablo Limited Edition Cel #200/350 Signed by Marc Davis (Walt Disney, 1995). "I too shall bestow a gift upon the child. Listen well all of you. The Princess shall indeed grow in grace and beauty, be loved by all who know her, but before the sun sets on her 16th birthday, she will prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel, and die!" That's the speech that Maleficent gives when she shows up at Princess Aurora's christening. This very famous scene from Sequence 2/Scene 111 was turned into this spectacular hand-inked, hand-painted limited edition cel. It was created from archived production artwork which included an original Eyvind Earle background. The cel was painted at the Disney Ink and Paint Department located on the studio lot as one of very few limited editions to feature hand-inking. This is #200 of an edition of only 350 and was originally sold unsigned; however, this one bears the signature of Marc Davis (1913 - 2000) who served as Supervising Animator on Maleficent. Mr. Davis is a Disney Legend Inductee and one of "Walt's Nine Old Men." The art is in a frame of 25.5" x 21" with a mat opening of 15" x 11. The signature has faded slightly. Condition is Very Good. Frame is sold as-is.
