Animation Cel of The Evil Queen with the Heart Box
The Evil Queen is the stepmother of Snow White. Once her magic mirror tells her that Snow White is fairer than she is, she immediately enlists her huntsman to kill her in the woods….and to bring Snow White’s heart back to her in this very box. This Courvoisier animation cel and background is the most desirable image of the greatest villain of all.
The Queen is extremely beautiful but very vain. She seduced and married a widowed king, who had a daughter called Snow White with his first wife. After the king died, the Queen sent Snow White to work in her castle and forced her stepdaughter to abandon her title as Princess. This interpretation of the classic fairy tale character has been very well received by film critics and the general public. Not only is she considered Disney’s most iconic and menacing villain, but Disney’s version of the Queen has also become a popular archetype that influenced a number of artists and non-Disney works.
