Tomorrow morning, July 31st, auction house Profiles in History will be holding a massive auction of animation art with over 900 lots. Among the pieces available is an original model sheet of Br’er Rabbit from Disney’s rarely seen Song of the South (1946). It is estimated to sell for between $8,000-$12,000.
