Dr. Seuss and Charles Schulz hands are here too![Anna Schiller, 01/02/2015]
The Dr. Seuss (Ted Geisel) hands are displayed with a Cat in the Hat sketch reading: "This is to Certify that THESE HANDS are Mine and are not the Paws of my Cat."
What's cooler than wax sculptures made from photos of famous people? Well, a lot of things, but the thing I've got in mind is bronze casts made from the ACTUAL HANDS of famous people -- presidents, astronauts, athletes, actors, etc. Louis Armstrong, Winston Churchill, Joe DiMaggio, Andre the Giant and Walt Disney are among the highlights; there's also a handful of medical oddities. The casts were named for surgeon Adrian E. Flatt, who made celebrity hand-casting his hobby.[Dave, 02/11/2003]
