Original Japanese anime cel from the 4 episode OVA of Queen Emeraldas. If you're unfamiliar with animation cels, they are hand painted frames of animation that were used to make an animated series of film. Each production cel or sketch represents part of the movement process and are hand painted or hand drawn by animators so no two are exactly alike. They're a lot like movie props. This is a 3 cel layer set-up of Hiroshi, his pack and it's shadow and comes with 2 matching douga sketches, a partial for his head and one for his bag. Cels and dougas have normal wear consistent with a cel of this age, most notably paint transfer on the sketch of the head. Overall this is a nice looking cel from this beautifully animated Leji Matsumoto anime.
