The Walt Disney Archives collection celebrates the rich history and majestic artistry of the Walt Disney Company, revisiting seldom seen original treasures, from animation maquettes to archival stationery. Established in 1938, the Character Model Department at Walt Disney Studios employed sculptors to create three-dimensional figures known as maquettes. These animator models would expose crucial angles, reveal the play of light and shadow, and clarify issues of perspective, allowing artists to study each character in a brand new way. This limited-edition, hand-painted sculpture is derived from one of those maquettes. Production molds were made from a digital 3D scan of the original animator model. The original was unpainted and did not include Anna's signature cape. For this reproduction, a sculpted cape was added under the supervision of “Frozen” art director, Michael Giaimo. Who said, "The exuberant and playful characteristics of Anna suggested a winter outfit of bold proportions. It was imperative that her costume be as iconic as the character herself. her rich saturated cobalt blue dress, black bodice and striking magenta cape underscores not only the character's strength, but also stands in beautiful counterpoint against the snowscape environments of the film. Certificate of verification and story card are included.
