A unique wintertime look at Duckburg, its denizens and an ice castle. The Duck family and all their friends (plus a few antagonists) are en­joying a Mardi Gras Before the Thaw - a festive, subfreezing ice skate party. While nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie sculpt a familiar ­looking snowman, Daisy and Donald Duck glide over the pond's surface, hand-in-hand, oblivious to all but each other. Uncle Scrooge is in his element, turning the occasion into a profit maker and if you look closely, isn't that Mickey and Minnie in the background among other recognizable silhouetted figures?

Carl Barks' magnificent oil is the eighteenth Walt Disney oil paint­ing by the Old Duck Man in a continuing full-size, limited edition lithograph series begun by Another Rainbow ten years ago.
