(Disney, 1940) An extremely rare animator's maquette of Hyacinth Hippo from the "Dance Of The Hours" sequence of Disney's 1940 Feature Film, "Fantasia." Maquettes such as this one were used by animators as a three-dimensional reference while animating the character. Constructed of plaster and hand-painted in the character model department of the studio, only a handful would be produced and distributed among the animators, with each one numbered on the bottom. The maquette measures 5"x 8" tall. It is in very good condition with some loss of paint visible. The studio stamp and the number "6" are on the underside of the base.
