Southwestern Historical Wax Museum- Van Cliburn

(b. 1934)

Van Cliburn is most famously known as the Texan who won the International Tchaikovsky Piano Competition in 1958. This tableau displays exactly what he was famous for, playing piano. The very simple set does not need any ornamentation because of the simplicity of Van Cliburn's contribution to society. If only they made his wax figure with taller hair, then it would be more accurate.

A close up of Mr. Cliburn. He has won many prestigious honors from both the United States and Russia.
