    Description

    Mickey Mouse Limited Edition Bronze Statue by Blaine Gibson (Walt Disney, c. 1970-80s). This is a fantastic Mickey Mouse bronze. The bronze statue depicts a smiling and waving Mickey Mouse. The piece was sculpted by Disney Legend Inductee Blaine Gibson (1918 - 2015) and is signed on Mickey's foot. While working as an assistant animator at the Disney studios, Mr. Gibson's sculpture work caught the eye of Walt Disney, who took him aboard for his Disneyland project in 1954. Among the attractions Blaine Gibson would sculpt for included the Jungle Cruise, the Enchanted Tiki Room, the various attractions produced for the 1964 New York World's Fair, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Haunted Mansion, and the Hall of Presidents, which he would continue to sculpt new presidents for until George W. Bush. In 1993, Blaine Gibson was commissioned to sculpt the now-famous "Partners" statue of Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse for Disneyland. The same year, Blaine Gibson would be honored as a Disney Legend. This is an artist's proof and is numbered AP14/25. The bronze is a "Lost Wax" casting. Sold in the Disneyana Shop on Main Street in Disneyland in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Mickey stands 7.25" tall and has Walt Disney Productions on the right foot. Fine condition.
