    Description

    "Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse - Partners" Statue (Walt Disney, 1993). Blaine Gibson (1918 - 2015) was one of the most noteworthy sculptors in the history of Walt Disney Studios. He worked at the studio for 45 years and was inducted as a Disney Legend in 1993. His work can be seen in virtually every Disney Theme Park today. His bronzes are some of the most often used spots within the parks for family photos. This is a rare heavy resin statue on a marble base, inspired by the park sculpture "Partners." This original statue was unveiled at Disneyland on Mickey's 65th birthday on 11/18/93. It was re-dedicated on Walt Disney's 100th birthday, on 12/5/01. The original bronze sits in front of Sleeping Beauty's Castle at Disneyland, as well in other places in various Disney Parks. This beautiful sculpture, a stunning example of Blaine Gibson's genius, was sold exclusively at the parks. Blaine Gibson's signature is incised in the resin base. The statue stands 11" on a marble base of 7" x 4". Minor handling. Very Good condition.
