Madame Upanova Fantasia Walt Disney Classics

149.00

Prima Ballerina Mademoiselle Upanova, the famous dancing ostrich, is known from her graceful "Dance of the Hours" in the 1940 Walt Disney film, Fantasia.

A pink bow atop her beguiling head matches her pink toe shoes. A hint of Madame Upanova's favorite purple eye shadow is glimpsed on her eyelids. Fans of ostrich plumes on her wings and tail are set off by a black leotard. A simple black bow is demurely tied around her long, slender neck. Powerful legs clad in the white tights of a true prima ballerina are crossed in the classic third position of ballet.

Created by artist Bruce Lau, this Walt Disney Classics Collection figurine was produced from 1997 until it was retired in June, 1999. The incised mark on the base is a symbol of a music stand, which was used for all Walt Disney Classic Collection figurines made in the year 1997.

Madame Upanova is meticulously packed in her original box, and includes the original certificate of authenticity.

She measures approximately 4 1/2" in length, 5" in width, and 9" in height.

Madame Upanova is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks, crazing, or repairs.

From the Walt Disney Classics Collection brochure that is included with this sculpture:

Capturing the "Illusion of Life."

From its very beginning, Disney animation has had one purpose- to create the "illusion of life." Now that passion is passed down to the Walt Disney Classics Collection in the creation of stunning sculptures that bring magical Disney film moments and characters to three-dimensional life.

Subscribing to the same painstaking principles as animation, the creation of each sculpture is a labor of love and rare craftsmanship. Each sculpture represents the full resources of The Walt Disney Company, from the archivists and animators to painters and writers. During months of meticulous work, each sculpture is created, critiqued and revised until it is as compelling as the original animated character and so luminous with life it's as if the character stepped from the screen and into your hands.

Additionally, the pieces are "plussed" with precious metals, crystals, or blown glass for that extra touch of believability. An official backstamp and a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Roy E. Disney for The Walt Disney Studios symbolize the care which has gone into making each sculpture a bit of Disney animation magic- and a fine work of art.
