Cloning the fa­mous

Sunday Times - - News | Wax Artist -

Madame Tus­sauds was founded as a pop­u­lar Lon­don tourist at­trac­tion based on the work of French wax artist Marie Tus­saud, who died in 1850. Tus­saud made a death mask of Marie An­toinette and Louis XVI. The wax fig­ure of Marie An­toinette was un­veiled at Madame Tus­sauds Vi­enna in 2015 in hon­our of the 260th an­niver­sary of the doomed queen’s birth. There are 24 Madame Tus­sauds mu­se­ums through­out the world.
