By far one of the coolest things I've ever had the privilege to own! It popped up on the USMF facebook page, and I snagged it about 5 minutes after it was posted.  The original artwork was likely designed by Hank Porter, a Disney animator, in early 1944. It was painted on wood by CPL. Harold R. Kingsbury.  It measures about 3 feet wide and 3.5 feet tall.

 

Thanks to disneydave for all the help.

That's a very cool piece. The Corporal that painted it had some real talent.
