    Sleeping Beauty Maleficent and Diablo Production Cel (Walt Disney, 1959). "Oh dear, what an awkward situation. I had hoped it was merely an oversight. On that event, I best be on my way" says Maleficent as she first appears at Princess Aurora's christening. "And you're not offended, your excellency?" asks the Queen to Maleficent. This is an exceptional hand-inked, hand-painted trimmed production cel of both Maleficent and her pet Raven, Diablo, from this initial exchange, seconds before she pronounces the curse on the Princess of the pricked finger on the spindle. Great large image of 8" -- what a facial expression! Cel is on a print background. This is an original Art Corner cel that was sold at Disneyland. Matted with an opening of 11.5" x 9" and framed with glass for an overall size of 18" x 15.5". Very Good condition.
