    Tarzan Kala Presentation Cel and Hand-Painted Production Background Setup (Walt Disney, 1999). With no actual hand-painted production cels created to film the movie, one-of-a-kind hand-painted presentation cels such as this are quite rare and desirable by collectors. On this one, young Kala stands tentatively in the doorway, but gathering her courage to enter the tree house. The cel is on a production overlay and a hand-painted production background. It was created from original animation drawings and hand-painted by the legendary Disney Ink and Paint Department. The cel and production background are Plexiglas front framed to 21" x 16" with a mat opening of 12.5" x 6.5". This was Lot #10 in the Sotheby's "Art of Tarzan" auction on June 29th, 2000. There is a Disney seal on the lower left and a COA on the backside. In Fine condition.
