Jim Shore 'Snow White' Figures 2005-2006

It was back in 2005 that Jim Shore's Disney Traditions line of sculptures got it's start. Several figurines were introduced that inaugural year including Jim's very first Snow White sculpt, the Seven Dwarfs' ''Homeward Bound'. It also happens to be his favorite Snow White piece; he keeps a copy of it on his studio work table.

Released in October of '05, this log crossing scene stands 8'' high x 13.25'' long. As with all Jim's work, the final product is made of hand-painted, stone resin. Retail price $89.95.

Disney Store Item No. 6811101040431P. Enesco Item No. 4005434.

  1. What great carvings! It is hard to pick a favorite (though you know I'm leaning towards the Queen/Hag, of course). Thanks for sharing!

    1. The Queen/Hag sculpt reminds me of the two giant figures that used to be on display together at the Candy Cauldron, WDW: http://filmic-light.blogspot.com/2011/03/candy-cauldronstill-dipping-after-all.html
