Miami Wax Museum- Columbus in Spain

This image shows Christopher Columbus Dressed as a votary of St. Francis. Beside him is his son Diego. They have arrived at the convent of La Rabida, in Spain in 1485. Columbus sailed in the Mediterranean for years before his famed voyage in 1492.

A closer view of the two wax figures. This is not the usual portrayal of Christopher Columbus, as most views show him landing in the new world.
