DescriptionSleeping Beauty Original Storyboard Panel (Walt Disney, 1959).
Princess Aurora is named after the Roman goddess of the dawn "because she fills her father and mother's lives with sunshine." While still an infant, she is betrothed to the equally-young Prince Phillip. At her christening, the three good fairies Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather arrive to bless her. Flora gives her the gift of beauty. Fauna gives her the gift of song. At this point, Maleficent, the film's villain and self-proclaimed "mistress of all evil", appears on the scene. Claiming to be upset at not being invited, she curses Aurora to die when she pricks her finger on a spinning wheel's spindle before the sun sets on her 16th birthday. Fortunately, Merryweather has not yet given her a gift, so she uses hers to change Maleficent's curse, so Aurora will not die when she pricks her finger; instead, she will sleep until she is awakened by True Love's Kiss. From this classic Disney feature film we have a fantastic storyboard panel. A storyboard is a graphic representation of how the film will unfold, shot by shot. It's made up of a number of panels with illustrations or pictures representing each shot and what's going on in the scene. This storyboard measures 6.25" x 5" and was rendered in black ink and yellow pastel on black craft paper. The piece has pinholes in the top center where it was pinned to the storyboard wall. Storyboards are considered very rare and highly sought after by astute collectors. Condition is Very Good.
