Maurice's Wax Head

Did you know that Maurice Minnifield's wax head seen in "Northern Exposure" was sculpted by renown sculptor
Henry Alvarez of Alvarez Wax Models?

Maurice's wax head appeared in episode 5.3 "Jaws Of Life", originally aired October 4, 1993, when Maurice is chosen to be a wax figure at Madame Tussaud's, in London, for their rugged individualist's exhibit.

Barry on Maurice's statue: 
"To me, that wax figure looked like a corpse so I was very happy to see it put in the dump. Unfortunately, there were four of the things made and at least two survived. One of them stood in the doorway of the studio in Redmond, Washington from that episode until the last so I was forced to look at my dead self every morning before I had my coffee! Some demented soul bought that specimen at the auction Universal held to guarantee the show would not be resurrected! I hate to think what the purchaser has used or is using that macabre item for!"
