Thomas Kinkade (American, 1958-2012). Giclee print with hand-painted embellishments titled "Bambi's First Year," depicting the deer Bambi at different stages in his life in a landscape. From the Disney Dreams Collection. Signed and numbered 186/200 E.P. along the lower left. With a certificate of authenticity.

Said Kinkade of this work: "To suggest the moment of Bambi's empowerment, I positioned him on a rocky precipice overlooking the terrain of his kingdom and the four seasons of his first year. If you look closely, Bambi's self-sacrificing mother can be seen, as a half hidden image upon the distant mountain. Truly, a mother's love, like the spirit of the mighty mountains, will guide a son forever. The central theme of Bambi is the cycle of the seasons and the ongoing flow of life. Truly, water flows through the world like life itself - a timeless reminder that despite the passing seasons, nature thrives and a new generation is born.

I believe Bambi's First Year is the most breathtaking subject in my Disney Dreams Collection to date. I hope as you look at Bambi cresting the ridge of his domain, you too will feel empowered to live your best life and to count on a season of new beginnings, even when the challenges of life confront you. Truly for Bambi, and for us, life goes on."
