Did you know?

The first appointment with the celebrity is for measurements, photos, and videos so that nothing is left to chance. Six months to eight months later, on the day of final reckoning, when the statue is introduced to the public, the likeness must be uncanny.

  • As many as 500,000 may be needed for one head.
