The Jungle Book (1967)|
Production cel of Baloo and Shere Khan.
Baloo and Shere Kahn have been paired together to create an interesting cel set-up. Though the cels are taken from different moments in the film, Shere Kahn hails from the fight scene at the end of the film and Baloo is from one of his many dancing scenes, these two characters complement each other wonderfully.
The cels were laminated by the studio which was a fairly common practice for cels from this film and time period. There is evidence of a staple hole in both cels at the upper left corner which can be easily matted out. There is some waviness and crinkling to the cels that we believe was caused by the lamination process. Midway down the right side of the cel with Shere Khan and 2" to the left is some dimpling to the cel. There is some mottling and cloudiness surrounding the edges of the character Baloo and as partially visible in the web image, there are some considerable air pockets throughout; we suspect these were the result of the lamination process. As visible in the image, there is a white paint-like substance on the left hand of Baloo.
