Did you know?

The birth of a wax figure uses the work of fifteen artists: sculptor, moulder, makeup, costume ... Measurements, photos and videos are taken at the first appointment with personality, no detail is left to chance. Six months later, the day of the final confrontation at the inauguration, the resemblance must be troubling.

  • As many as 500,000 hairs may be needed for one head.
  • Every year the workshop uses 100kg of wax, 70 tubes of oil paint for make-up and 5km of sewing thread!
