(Disney, 1940) An extremely rare set of four miniature maquettes produced in the Model Department at the Disney Studio during the production of "Fantasia." In order to get a better idea of how to choreograph and light the "Dance Of The Hours" sequence, the model department built a miniature stage and populated it with these miniature figures. The model and figures assisted animators in recreating lighting as it would appear on a real stage. Hand-painted with painstaking detail, the figures range between 2.25" and 3" tall. Each one is mounted to a metal base. All four are in fine condition with light wear and soiling. An incredibly rare set and a fascinating part of Disney Studio Animation history.
