(Disneyland, 1965) An original concept illustration by Mary Blair of the Polynesian Islands to be used in Disneyland's "It's a Small World" attraction. According to Rolly Crump, "The Polynesian Islands weren't represented in the World's Fair version of the attraction, so Mary was trying to figure out how to have it fit in visually with the rest of the ride". This original Mary Blair concept comes from Rolly's personal collection, and was used during the creation of Disneyland's version of the attraction. The illustration is accomplished in ink over pencil on artist's board, and measures 10.75"x14.5". The condition is good with some wear and spots of minor discoloration around the edges.
