In celebration of the 30th anniversary of Disney’s The Lion King, Enesco has announced a brand-new format figurine featuring fan-favourites from the 1994 film.
The new Lion King Carved Stone Figurine from Disney Traditions by Jim Shore captures the magic of that moment in the movie when all of the characters gather on Pride Rock, surveying the savannah below, to the rousing lyrics of The Circle of Life.
In a new format for Jim Shore, Pride Rock forms the base of the figurine, featuring all of the main characters, from the villain Scar and comedy duo Timon and Pumbaa to the hero Simba.
Shore has left no detail untouched in this piece, even down to the inclusion of Rafiki’s drawing of baby Simba; lovingly hand-drawn using the dyes from exotic fruits and spices onto the Tree of Life.
Renowned for breathing new life into best-loved characters through his Disney Traditions by Jim Shore collection, the figurine is no exception, with Shore’s instantly recognisable patterns and intricate motif detailing, all painted by hand and inspired by American Folk art.
Measuring 21.5cm tall and presented in a fully branded gift box, the Lion King Carved Stone Figurine beautifully captures the fun, wonder and nostalgia of this iconic movie.
Enesco has also added a new Mickey Mouse figurine inspired by romance and the theme of love to its Britto’s Disney collection.
This range pairs one of the world’s best-loved family brands with contemporary artist Romero Britto. An international pop art sensation, he has interpreted some of the world’s favourite Disney characters in figurines through his signature style.
The Mickey Love Figurine is the perfect present for special occasions that celebrate all-things love, from Valentine’s Day to wedding day gifts and everything in between.
Made from cast stone and standing at 25.5cm tall, the figurine sees everyone’s favourite mouse standing looking up to the sky with a coy expression on his face. With arms tucked by his side in a sweet but shy pose, Mickey Mouse’s gaze is fixed on a heart-shaped balloon floating gently in the air. Dressed for what appears to be a very special occasion – perhaps a date with his love, Minnie Mouse – Mickey Mouse is presented wearing trousers, a shirt and waistcoat.
Of course, as a Britto piece, the figurine sees Mickey Mouse presented with a pop art twist, calling on the Brazilian-born artist’s signature style, featuring fun and funky colour-blocking as well as cool pattern detailing, such as funky spots and stripes and floral detailing throughout.
Like all figurines in the Disney Britto collection, this piece has a carefully hand-painted, high gloss finish, and is presented in a branded gift box.
