    Sleeping Beauty Maleficent and Diablo Production Cel (Walt Disney, 1959). "The Princess shall indeed grow in grace and be loved by all around her. But before the sun sets on her 16th birthday, she shall prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel... and DIE!" Doors have just blown open, lightening and flames appear, and Maleficent makes her entrance. This is a rare hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Maleficent with her pet raven Diablo, from when she first arrives at King Stephan's Castle. Detail is incredible -- check out Maleficent's fingernails, her ring and scepter, and Diablo's claws! A simply fantastic image of this classic Disney villain, measuring 8". The cel is trimmed and placed on a print background for presentation purposes. Matted with an opening of 8" x 9", and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 15" x 20". Frame sold as-is. Small crack on top of her scepter; otherwise, Very Good condition.
