    Frank Frazetta - Study for "Masai Warrior" Original Art (circa 1959). This lot is a beautifully finished pencil study for the painting "Masai Warrior". This detailed graphite pencil drawing was an important step in the development of one of Frazetta's most memorable paintings, which appears in the hardcover Frazetta book Legacy, on page 131. The piece has been professionally matted and the image area measures approximately 3" x 6.75". The drawing is signed at the bottom of the image, in ink, and the art is in Excellent condition. The "Masai Warrior" painting was originally created as an anniversary gift for Frank's wife, Ellie, and remains one of his own favorite images.
