    Redheaded Pirate Painting At Disneyland

    I hope this request doesn't violate any copyright laws. There's a painting of a reclining redhead female pirate above the bar in Disneyland's Pirates Of The Caribbean attraction. This is at the scene where the skeletons are enjoying their drinks and you can see the one skeleton's drink pass right through him.

    Can any of you supply an image of that painting or point me in the direction of one. I know there was a thread on this subject in the distant past here on MiceChat but I can't find it anymore.

    Thanks!

    Try googling Marc Davis, Pirates of the Caribbean. I did that and found this. That's the painting you mean, right?

    Extra value! Here's Marc Davis's concept sketch for the painting:

    It is referred to as "A Portrait of Things To Come'. Great shots, HBG!! I did a ultra-rough watercolor study of it using it for a friend's O scale building interior decoration (it was drastically sized down later to fit, of course):

    She looks like that girl Rizzo from Grease in the 2nd one.

    Thank you!


    That's exactly what I was looking for.

    So is there a story behind this painting?

    Rumor has it, the caves show the fate of the ill-fated pirates to come, thus red head in the portrait is the same red head seen at auction.
    it's a sale of candy and a sale of plush, it's a sale of toys and disney stuff
    there's so much that we sell, that it's time we tell, it's a plush plush sale!

    You son of a gun! (That's a naval term, folks).

    I didn't know you did that!

    Look for an upcoming story on more of Swab's work in a future MiceAge article.

    Not to stray off topic but he also drew my Avatar, he's quite the talented artist!

    As to the painting; I am continually shocked that all reference to Pirates chasing women was at one point removed, but this sultry wonder was allowed to stay. Please do not misunderstand, I LOVE redheads, wife's a redhead (and we have 4 kids). I just see a rather large irony in decision.

    Perhaps it has something to do with the painting's complete absence of any indication of rape.

    Good point.

    The nudity in this painting is pretty shocking, though. I mean, let's get some pants on that cherub.

    The chase scene, eh? When one takes into consideration the originally recorded accompanying soundtrack to the scene that to some reactionaries is such a clear 'indication of rape', one would hear kissing noises, and protestations of 'love' on the pirate's part; in one instance: "About ship, me lovey! It's the pride o' me heart ye be!".

    Just like the auction scene, this vignette was played down as harmless fun. It is hypocritical IMO to NOT condemn the Auction scene, if one has come to the conclusion that the 'woman chasing' sequence is unseemly. By really considering the designer's intent for the chase scene, it is hard for me to see this paralleled as rape. I suppose Pepe LePew* would be a rapist using these same standards.

    *you younger folks, go ahead and Google him--you'll like it.

    Well, TSkip's post expressed befuddlement over why the painting inspired no complaints while the chase scene apparently did. I think DL nailed it. Whether the complainers had a (peg)leg to stand on when they took offense at the chase scene is a separate issue.
