Movieland Wax Museum- Dances With Wolves

Here's a small set, that like many historical wax museums, shows a single figure in a simple tableau. Kevin Costner is John Dunbar in his 1990 Academy Award winning film Dances With Wolves. Most of the set is that backdrop that seems more grand with the lighting effects. Without it, the set is little more than dirt and rocks. The figure is fairly realistic, but for some reason doesn't seem to do the film, or actor justice.

An up close look at the figure. It's not bad. The detail is rich and the figure looks like Costner, but for some reason there's just something missing in my opinion.

A clapboard sign gives some information about the film, and the set pieces. What is an Authentic reproduction?

The Kevin Costner figure was not sold at the auction, and ended up at the World Wax Museum exhibit it Korea.
