    Bill Justice - Chip and Dale "Dragon Around" Bronze Sculpture #22/100 (Walt Disney, 2000). This delightful sculpture is based on the 1954 cartoon "Dragon Around," wherein construction worker Donald Duck tries to oust Chip 'n' Dale from their home to build a highway. It seems Chip had been reading a book of fairy tales, and had imagined himself as a valiant knight when he saw a menacing steamshovel shadow on the hillside that resembled a dragon; the chipmunks then have the notion to become knights in shining armor to fight back. Dale serves as Chip's mighty steed. Bill Justice enjoyed a 42-year career with the Walt Disney Company. He joined them in 1937 and his first assignment was to work on "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs". Justice's animation credits include over 20 feature films and 80 short subjects. He worked on "Pinocchio," "Dumbo," "Bambi," "Cinderella," "Alice in Wonderland," "Peter Pan," "Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree," and "Lady and the Tramp." Justice also developed that mischievous duo, Chip 'n' Dale, and he animated all but one of their cartoons. Small wonder he was awarded the "Disney Legend Award" in 1996. This bronze sculpture was produced for the 2000 Disney World Disneyana Convention by Bruce Lau for Bill Justice (White Horse Studio), and this is number 22 in a limited edition of 100. These sculptures quickly sold out at the convention with a retail price of $1,795, and they have since sold for considerably more on the secondary market. The sculpture is 11" tall and in Excellent condition. Comes with a signed signature series plaque from the creating artist.
