    Fantasia Ben Ali Gator Maquette (Walt Disney, 1940). An extremely rare animator's maquette of Ben Ali Gator, from Joe Grant's Character Development department. This is an original Fantasia maquette of the head dancing alligator from the "Dance of the Hours" section. Ben's size is 5" x 9", and he sits somewhat loosely on his wooden base. The maquette has been professionally restored and repainted. Animator maquettes gave a 3D visual reference for everyone who was working on a film. Fantasia maquettes are some of the first the studio made, along with Pinocchio. Very Good condition.
