Hollywood Wax Museum- The Ten Commandments

In today's post we see the image of Academy Award winning actor Charlton Heston(1924-2008) as moses from the motion picture The Ten Commandments. In this epic scene, Moses returns from Mount Sinai only to discover the Jews worshiping the golden calf. In a moment of righteous anger, Moses destroys the commandments, and judgement is fallen upon the Israelites. Unlike most wax depictions of Moses, this one highlights the Moses of film, and not the Moses of history.

Another view of the classic figure shows that its expression doesn't quite seem to reflect the full amount of anger Moses had towards his people. However, the figure does have a charm that the vintage figures always seemed to convey.
