    Description

    Frank Frazetta Fire and Ice "Darkwolf" Animation Maquette Model (1981). Frank Frazetta's epic Barbarian-and-Monster tale, Fire and Ice, was released as an animated feature film in 1983, directed by Ralph Bakshi. For the film's Conan-like cowled hero, Darkwolf, Frazetta hand-crafted a clay model which he used to create this plaster animator's maquette bust. The 3-D bust measures approximately 3.5" wide by 5" tall, resting on a "wood block" base measuring 3.5" x 4.75" x 1.5", and it is understood that approximately 20-25 copies were made during the films production (with some undoubtedly not surviving the last 30 years), so this a rare item. The bust has a few minor chips in the base area, and some handling wear, but is in overall Fine condition. Inscribed and dated on the right side.
