    Tim Burton Original Art: Framed Polaroid. If you enjoy the uncanny dark visions of such Tim Burton films as Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, Corpse Bride and his Batman films, you'll fall under the power of this uncanny artwork from Burton himself. It's a Polaroid portrait taken by Burton of various dismembered limbs and body parts - stitched in various configurations. Gruesome but undeniably fascinating, the picture measures 19" x 24", and is set within a brown matte and a 33.5" x 37" black wooden frame. Dismemberment has been a motif of Burton's work since his early work Frankenweenie (1984), which had resulted in Burton being fired by Disney, who never released the film theatrically. (The studio did release it to video after Burton won fame elsewhere.) Burton has signed the portrait but his name is under the matte. Excellent condition. This is a personal, disturbing but oddly compelling work of art from present-day Hollywood's most fascinating horror director!
