    Snow White Guyana Stamp Painted Pan Background (Walt Disney, 1999). Come along on a train ride through a magic kingdom, with this original hand-painted pan background. It was created for the Disney Stamp Program, a series of special commemorative stamps issued for the South American Republic of Guyana. This was for a sheet of five stamps with the title "Snow White's Philatelic Ride Through the Diamond Mine," that featured the dwarfs (with Dopey trailing behind on a handcar), Snow White and the Prince, and Snow White's animal friends (art for these figures is not included, but we are including a color print-out of the actual stamp sheet), with the mine entrance at the right. Note the beautiful castle in the far left, little bluebirds flying about, the Cottage beyond the mine, and shiny colored jewels in the rocks at the lower right. A lovely sight, to be sure, painted in gouache on illustration board, with an image area measuring 35" x 12.25". An onionskin print of the original detailed preliminary drawing, on two sheets taped together, is also included. The painted background is a work of art in itself, but would look great with any number of animation cels. Overall Very Good condition, with some very minor moisture stains along the upper right corner.
