Art Notes

At some time in our lives, each one of us has wished upon a star, and a beautiful wish is where Geppetto’s dream takes shape for the little puppet boy he carved from wood. In the classic Disney film, Geppetto sees a shooting star and wishes the puppet would become a real boy – the son he always hoped for. As the night progresses, the Blue Fairy is poised to make this wish come true. The glow from the fire reflects on the faces of Jiminy Cricket and Cleo as they watch the sweet interaction of Figaro meeting Pinocchio for the very first time. Joy fills the workshop as Geppetto’s wish is granted.
Thomas Kinkade Studios is pleased to present Disney Geppetto’s Pinocchio, art that uplifts us and reminds us that hopes and dreams can come true.
