A Huge Elvis Statue for National Postcard Week

NPCW 2016
National Postcard Week

Elvis is often referred to as "the King of Rock and Roll." Since his officially documented death, August 16, 1977, Elvis has been spotted in many places.  I took these photos of a HUGE Elvis in Crystal River, Florida in the late 1980's.

Walt Disney's Bambi and Characters in Porcelain

A Celebration of Spring
Bambi takes his first wobbly steps.  Friend Owl shares a few words of wisdom.   Spring is in the air - a special time to celebrate.  And what nicer way than with a gift from the Walt Disney Classics Collection.  Whether it's baby Bambi for that special new arrival, Friend Owl for the wise, new graduate, or bashful Flower just to show your mother that you love her, these beautifully handcrafted animation sculptures are a thoughtful expression of your feelings.  Perfect for any occasion or just because it's spring!

Beautifully detailed animation sculptures from the Walt Disney Classics Collection.
Bambi and Flower "He Can Call Me A Flower If He Wants To" 6"
Thumper "Hee! Hee! Hee!..." 3"
Friend Owl "What's Going on Around Here?" 8 3/5"
Thumper's Sisters "Hello, Hello There!" 3 3/5".

This advertising postcard is oversized and unused. The set was made in 1992 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of  Bambi the deer (released on August 13, 1942).

If you want to purchase this entire set on the Disney Classics website, be prepared to pay a little over $1,000.00 dollars.

Art by Cline A. Siegenthaler

1991 Cline A. Siegenthaler

I believe this looks like it might be a dragon? Or maybe it is an Alligator with legs and arms??  What ever it is, I like it.

This postcard is unused.

Cline A. Siegenthaler has been exhibiting his Science Fiction and Fantasy artwork since 1989. His portfolio is an ever-changing zoo of bizarre aliens, whimsical gargoyles and over-engineered, mechanical beasts.
