I want to thank Koen for sharing these photos of his recently purchased Fantasyland Base shown with the Dancing Princess Aurora & Prince Phillip and the Three Fairies (Flora, Fauna and Merryweather) from Sleeping Beauty.
The Dancing Couple, Aurora & Phillip were releases in April, 1998. This sculpture was done in two versions, blue and pink. I think this was done to keep both Flora and Merryweather happy :) The blue version was released as an Open Edition and the pink version was done in an edition size of 2,000. Also released were Flora, Fauna and Merryweather in April, 1998. The Three Fairies were retired in April 2002.
For more discussion on the two versions, please check out the blog entry Dancing Aurora & Phillip: Make Her Blue! from August, 2007.
The Fantasyland Base was made available during the "Celebration of Walt Disney Art Classics" Convention held at Walt Disney World from May 5-6, 2001. The Base is a resin arch that was made available for Convention Guests to display the three (3) Convention featured sculptures - Grumpy (in the Snow White ride), Timothy Mouse (in the Dumbo ride) and the Mad Hatter (in the Alice in Wonderland Teacup ride).
I personally like how Koen has used the arch and how nicely all four sculptures fit on it. The coloring of the floor compliments the Dancing Couple scupture very nicely.
