A northern Iowa town hopes to make big money on the sale of tiny statues. The German figurine-maker Hummel is releasing “The Conductor,” a blond boy with his hands in the air, standing at a podium filled with music from the “Music Man,” the musical created by Mason City native Meredith Willson. Jerry Krieger of the Mason City Foundation says 300 will be made. They’ll be engraved to mark the 100th anniversary of Willson’s birth on May 18, 2002. Krieger says some the proceeds will go to the Mason City Foundation, which is developing the tribute area called Music Man Square. The figurines come in two heights and two prices.They come in five or 13-and-a-half-inch versions for 250 or 15-hundred-50 dollars. To order a figurine, call 866-228-6262.
