Nala Chess Piece by Dakanavar
Nala Chess Piece
Resin commemorative chess piece figure of the Nala mask from Disney's The Lion King Musical

It stands 9.5cm (3 inches) high, and was made as a gift to the actress who played Nala (and whose makeup I sometimes did during the stage-play's Brisbane leg of the Australian tour in 2014/2015), and one also to the young girl who played Young Nala (whose makeup and hair I only did once). I also gifted one each to the heads of the makeup department.
