Here Agaha is using her wings to dart upward quickly. See how her right wing is flexed behind her, actually pointing away from the viewer, as if she’s dodging a weapon fired at her or making way for a robot. The expression and posing of her hands is quite effective, and she does look as if she’s given her wings a jump start by pushing off vigorously with her right leg. The trace lines, also, are quite well preserved for a cel of this age. Sequence number: A8. (Or so says the dealer: I read only a hasty grease-pencilled “8” on the upper right corner.)

The design of the wings is the exact same as in the previous cel (yellow spots, red dots, red spot on both swallowtails), so I think these may come from the same cut. (Cels from this series seem to have been preserved haphazardly, so many of the cels that I’ve seen come up for sale tend to be sequence-mates of each other.) Here is a simple “flicker” that shows these two cels alternating.



It does seem as if she is dodging, not just up, but away from the viewer a bit.
