    Howard Hughes wax figure by Katherine Stubergh. This one-of-a-kind, hyper-realistic, life-size 59 x 19 x 25 in. wax figure of Howard Hughes was created by famed wax figure artiste Madame Katherine Stubergh, who was a celebrity in her own right. It was considered a immense honor to be immortalized in wax by her. This seated figure was sculpted by the artist using a wax impression cast directly from Howard Hughes' face. After having the mold pulled from his face, Mr. Hughes sat live with Stubergh in her studio as she worked on the coloring and finishing of the wax sculpture. In very fine condition. Special shipping will apply.
