National Historical Wax Museum- John Marshall


The now defunct National Historical Wax Museum was located in Washington D.C. on 26th street. Here we see the figure of Chief Justice of the Supreme Court John Marshall. Marshall was credited for establishing the Supreme Court as a truly equal branch of the government. The court's decisions during his reign as Chief Justice solidified the idea of the constitution being the supreme law of the country, and that all cases should be weighed against the original intent of the constitution.

A close up of the figure. Marshall's figure is incredibly lifelike. Many of the other figures at the museum did not have such detail.
