Walt Disney’s favorite song from “Mary Poppins” is recreated here in a Peter Ellenshaw rendering of the Bird Lady on the steps of London’s St. Paul’s Cathedral. This chiarograph on heavy black paper stock is taken from Peter’s production illustration painted in 1965 showing his impression of how the scene would appear in the Oscar winning film. To “Mary Poppins” fans worldwide this has become an iconic image of what is most important in our lives.
Each chiarograph is remarqued with a silver serigraph by Harrison Ellenshaw of Mary Poppins flying over the rooftops of London with St Paul's Cathedral in the background.
