Rival wizard Saruman who held Gandalf captive is the subject of this original hand-painted production cel. Great full-figure image of the power-mad wizard, complete with a huge wooden staff; figure size is 7.25". Cel is placed on an original production background, painted in oils on a skimmed piece of illustration board measuring 14.75" x 11". Very Good overall condition, with minor handling wear.
