Movieland- Levar Burton

Here's a set from the Movieland Wax Museum featuring Levar Burton from Reading Rainbow. Mr. Burton did an episode on wax figures and had his own likeness created in wax. The whole process wax featured on the show, and this tableau was what resulted.

A larger view of the set. So many books.

Mr. Burton stands under the Reading Rainbow sign.

Levar Burton donated the jacket that the figure wears.

Posters on the wall remind kids to read.

The figure and set both sold at the movieland auction for a mere $150 each, which was way under priced.

You can visit the Reading Rainbow website here. (But you don't have to take my word for it)

For more pictures of wax museums visit Houses of Wax.
