Disney enchantment and the festive artistry of Jim Shore come together in this unique collection celebrating Disney’s most beloved characters. The artist, Jim Shore: “I can’t imagine myself ever tiring of this. The variety keeps me inspired and it’s just plain fun to look at!” Initially Jim Shore pursued his art when and where he could. Supporting his young family as an engineer, he honed his skills as a sculptor and painter in his spare time. His passion was always his art, which ultimately led to the start of his own company. Jim has also perfected his technique in silver and gold-smithing, wood carving, stained glass, furniture making and sculpting in stone. But, it’s his recollection of nostalgic childhood memories and his deep appreciation of handcrafted quilt patterns and textures that inspires Jim’s works-of-art. The magic of Jim’s design style is that it can be partnered with a variety of licensed brands. His partnerships with Disney®, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer® and Boyds® all showcase the traditional characters and icons in a style that can only be achieved by Jim Shore. Each piece touches the heart of the enthusiast through creativity and nostalgia. Sleeping Beauty's evil entrantress Maleficient prepares to cast her wicked spell. Intertwined in sorceress' gown the dragon from the climax sequence of "Sleeping Beauty" is fully represented complete with fiery eyes that glow when you turn on the switch.
