Mammoth Cave Wax Museum- Daniel Boone


One of Kentucky's famous historical figures, Daniel Boone is honored in the Mammoth Cave Wax Museum with this life size re-creation. The figure sits in a log cabin holding his weapons. Although he was born in Pennsylvania, Boone is well know for forging a trail to Kentucky, which allowed the settlement of this future State. The figure is actually quite nice, and for a historical figure that had limited visual references, it came out quite nice.

A closer shot highlights the detail in the figure. I like the outfit, it really expresses the frontiersman nature of Boone.
