The Pumpkin King and Behemoth!
Coming out this holiday season to celebrate the film Nightmare Before Christmas' 15th anniversary is Enesco's latest Walt Disney Classics Collection numbered limited edition piece which, if I do say so myself, not only prominently features Behemoth the character, but is quite a behemoth! I pulled out all the stops on this one to add as much detail as possible without making it gaudy. If you study the piece and the film sequence (attached below) carefully, you'll see I've folded in a number of the film's introduction's key moments and elements up through the moment when The Pumpkin King (the costumed Jack Skellington) swallows the fire. The four pumpkins impaled on the fenced wall's spear-like stakes, the creepy hand grasping about from a gutter drain, face like porch light, frolicking rats and architectural motifs all add to the mise en scene.
