Let’s take a closer look at the new Walt Disney Classic Collection intricate figurine featuring Snow White’s Old Hag. Titled “Poisonous Plot” and sculpted by Ruben Procopio, this new numbered limited edition release of 750 pieces, will reach WDCC dealers around the world in summer 2001. This piece is plussed with pewter basket handle and pewter hands, resin reeds and wooden oar.
Disguised as an old peddler woman, the sinister Queen stealthily steers her boat through the tall reeds of the swampy water. The epitome of evil, this wicked witch has a precious but poisonous cargo aboard: a cursed apple intended to destroy innocent Snow White. Of this striking scene animation historian Al Kilgore declared that, “the Witch’s trip from her castle to the forest in the fog-shrouded dawn is the most underrated scene in the entire film. It is the most subtle use of multiplane, color, and realistic animation”. A truly dramatic sculpture, this powerfully crafted piece (plussed with a pewter basket handle, pewter hands and wooden oar), conveys the darkness of animation’s most wicked villain, as well as the passion and grandeur of Walt Disney’s first full-length animated masterpiece.
