    The Little Mermaid Ursula with Ariel and Eric Pan Production Cel and Master Background Setup (Walt Disney, 1989). "You pitiful insignificant fools! I am the ruler of all of the oceans! The waves obey my every wish! The sea and all its toils bow to my power!" These are the words of the giant menacing Sea Witch, Ursula, in this film's good vs evil finale. This is a pan production cel of the head of Ursula as she is causing the storms around her. A second pan cel of Ariel and Eric jumping off into the ocean to escape her has been added. The two cels are on a huge 45" x 12.5" pan hand-painted production background of the stormy sky as she is above water. These production cels and pan production background are from the famous "Art of the Little Mermaid" Auction that was held in New York on December 15, 1990. The background and cels are in one common mat of 49" x 16.5". A copy of the auction catalog page with this lot is included. Any and all artwork from this sale is very hard to find. Condition is Very Good.
