To make the figure, Stubergh first made a wax impression (casting mold) of Charlie's face and then he sat for her while she sculpted the fine facial details. Two casts were made, one of which was sold in an auction just last year for $25,000.

  2. I noticed the same thing. They aren't large enough.
