"Snow White" (1937) [Series] - Courvoisier of Vultures

More of the "Snow White" material in the Cowan Collection....

This is one of the more interesting (in my opinion) Courvoisier framings. I especially liked the wood grain background, the circle surrounding the Vultures and the embossed "The Vultures" element. Somebody decided to get pretty creative with this piece!

It's a good image of the Vultures -- good character portrayal. In fact, I found a similar image of the Vultures on the Disney web site (in the image used on the Disney site, one of the Vultures has a slightly more open mouth).

  1. Ripping and gorgeous images; I prefer the closed mouth bird. These would make lovely decals to flank a doorway.

    - Good point about the decals! A great idea...

    - A good case can be made for either images and being a great "snapshot" of the characters. Both are strong and I feel lucky to have one of them!
