The Jungle Book (1967)|
Production cel of Shere Khan and Kaa.
This cel set-up is an exercise in contrasts. Shere Kahnís fierce maw is spread wide as slippery Kaa seems to be hiding a slight smirk.
The frame measures 14.75" x 17" while the aperture measures 7" x 9.75".
Cel has become slightly wavy which is fairly common for animation cels of this age. There is evidence of cracking and lifting on Shere Khanís nose, eyes and paw. There is some slight lifting throughout. Visible upon close inspection and halfway down the left side is evidence of a staple which has protruded slightly from under the mate. The light reflections in the web image are from the camera flash only and are not on the actual piece.
Framing was done prior to its arrival at WWA thus the list price is reflective of the art only--the piece comes with the frame pictured. There is no change in price due to the frame--it can be de-framed upon request at purchase but will not change the price of the piece.
The size of the image is 6" h x 5.5" w.
