Fantasia Elephant Maquette
Limited Edition of 1940
The Walt Disney Archive Collection celebrates the rich history and majestic artistry of the Walt Disney Company, revisiting seldom seen original treasures and transforming them into an inspired collection for you to display and share. From animation maquettes to archival stationery, the Walt Disney Archives Collection encourages you to take some of the Disney Magic home with you. An animation maquette is a three dimensional character model, used by animators as a way to study crucial angles, reveal the play of light and shadow and clarify issues of perspective. Pinocchio was the first Disney full-length film to use maquettes. Each maquette is individually numbered and includes a certificate of verification and storycard. A variety of animator models, or maquettes, were made for Fantasia including Hyacinth Hippo, Ben Ali Gator, the gods of Olympus, unicorns and cherubs, among others. These figurines proved to be so popular that Walt Disney occasionally used them as gifts to VIPs and they were sometimes used as decor in studio offices. The elephant maquette reproduced for this edition was on display at the end of 1966 on the north windowsill in Walt Disney's formal office on the Burbank Studios lot.
