In creating the "Nutcracker Suite" sequence for Fantasia, Walt Disney told his filmmakers, "It should be something beautiful and something fantastic," adding that he wanted a "will-o'-the-wisp" feeling. In response, the Disney artists created exceptionally elaborate animation cels to attain the fanciful feeling the master storyteller sought, and this new sculpture perfectly captures that ethereal spirit. Portraying the garden-fresh Summer Fairies, who charmingly awaken to celebrate the full flowering of Summer, this exquisitely sculpted piece conveys all the loveliness of nature and the magic of these sweet sprites. Plussed with three bronze fairies, this enchanting sculpture reflects the delicate artistry of Walt Disney's animated masterpiece. This latest Fantasia sculpture is indeed something beautiful, something fantastic, and perfectly complements the Walt Disney Classics Collection's other entrancing Fantasia Fairy sculptures.
