Jafar with Mesmer Cobra Scepter Statue
Jafar with Cobra Scepter Statue titled “Villianous Viper” from the Disney Traditions by Jim Shore collection. Combines the magic of Disney with Jim Shore’s unmistakable style that include, from time-honored motifs of handcrafted folk art, quilt patterns and traditional themes, to high-quality stone resin and beautifully hand-painted with intricate styling and attention to detail. Jafar’s cloak billowing, etched designs make the villain even more threatening. With a snake twisted around his garment, and a blue tiger bearing it’s fangs, fear meets fashion. Jafar is the main antagonist of Disney’s 1992 animated feature film Aladdin. As Royal Vizier of Agrabah, he was presented as the Sultan’s most trusted and loyal advisor. In truth, the imperious Jafar held passionate disdain for the Sultan. He dedicated the latter half of his life to gaining ownership of a magic lamp containing an all powerful genie, to that end, Jafar would control cosmic power, which he would use to overtake the throne and the world at large.
Jafar is loosely based on the wicked sorcerer and vizier from the Aladdin folk tale in the One Thousand and One Nights collection of stories. With an elegant, yet cheeky approach to villainy, coupled with a dry sense of humor and menace, Jafar is amongst Disney’s most renowned villains. Jafar is the second most powerful authority in Agrabah, answering only to the Sultan. He is always accompanied by his sarcastic, devious pet parrot, Iago. Jafar primarily operated from a secret lair hidden behind the walls of his bedroom in the Sultan’s palace. Whilst presenting a charming and respectable exterior to the Sultan and the people of Agrabah, he secretly holds everyone around him in contempt and is a power-hungry individual. Towards Agrabah’s royal family, he constantly manipulates the Sultan by means of hypnotizing him with a magical snake-headed staff, which he always carries on his person. He had traveled widely and amassed a wide knowledge of magical artifacts and legends. Until he uses Genie’s powers to become a sorcerer, and later a genie, however, his magical abilities were limited to the use of such artifacts as he has collected, and his prowess as an accomplished alchemist.
Jafar also had some contacts within the Agrabah underworld, including the thief Gazeem. Little is known about Jafar’s past. At some point, he purchased Iago from a bazaar as his minion, as Jafar noted in The Return of Jafar. As far as Jafar’s family goes, he has a twin sister named Nasira, who tried bringing her brother back to life in the game Nasira’s Revenge. She respects Jafar and the sibling bond between them is quite strong. Jafar’s Mesmer Cobra Scepter is a cobra-headed scepter owned by Jafar, in Aladdin. Initially and primarily used as a means of hypnosis, the ruby eyes made those who gazed into them become susceptible to Jafar’s suggestions and obey his every order. It was eventually destroyed by Aladdin when he discovered its true function. Once Jafar wishes to become the world’s most powerful sorcerer, he gains a new staff that is imbued with various magical abilities. Disney Aladdin’s Jafar with Mesmer Cobra Scepter Statue sizes: 8.6 inches / 22 cm x 4 inches / 10 cm x 9 inches / 23 cm.
