    The Lord of the Rings Moria Background Original Art (Ralph Bakshi, 1978). Sidelined by heavy snow, Frodo and his crew must enter the ancient underground world under the Misty Mountains. There, Gandalf battles a balrog and falls to his (presumed) death. Here's the original hand-painted background of Durins' Bridge which crosses the abyss Gandalf falls into. This amazing background is painted on the back side of a sheet of translucent film measuring approximately 29" x 20", with an image area measuring 24.25" x 16.5". The film is a brown line print of line art; the color details are painted on back. It's noted in the bottom border as "#2 Fight" and as #61 in the lower right corner. Edges have masking tape remnants. Overall condition is Very Good.
