Potter's Wax Museum- William I

Here we see the figure of William I "The Conqueror" of Normandy. The wax sculpture is dressed in elaborate royal clothing, and is a nice figure all around. The history of William I is filled with betrayals, war and Crusades, but it was his conquest of England that is so often remembered.

A close up of the King. These old wax figures from Potter's Wax Museum have such a higher quality than many of the older figures from other museums. The detail that went into them over fifty years ago serves as a testament to the passion of George L. Potter.
