    Walt Disney Studios -- "Sleeping Beauty" Original Hand Painted Production Cel and Photograph Background. (1959). Maleficent, the evil fairy, spreads her arms and casts her spell for the infant Aurora. Her evil wish will condemn the princess to prick her finger and thereby poison herself fatally. (Disney sure liked to poison the good girls!)... but all is not lost. The final spell by the good fairy, Flora, will save the day. Here is Maleficent as animated by Disney legend Marc Davis. She is at her evil best with her arms and her magic staff upraised. This scene inspired a limited edition cel from the Disney Studio, but this is an original production cel. It is presented on a photographic image from the same scene. Maleficent is 11.0" x 7.0" and the background area measures 14.0" x 10.5." A showpiece!
