About Our Figures
We are glad that you are interested in knowing more about our figures. Each figure displayed in our museum is a unique work of art, and involves several months of planning, research and development. Our sculptors and artists are among the most experienced in the world.
Each work of art takes an average of 6 months to produce, sometimes taking up to 1 year. The figure may require more than 20 artists, depending on the level of complexity. Each hair is manually implanted and several thin layers of paint are added over the weeks to provide the correct absorption to reach the expected skin tone. The most advanced materials are used, from surgical prosthetics to porcelain teeth. In the past, all figures were made by using beeswax. Over the years, new composite materials have emerged. Derivatives are now being used as a raw material blend, including petroleum-derived wax, to provide greater durability, strength and realism.
You may find artists, politicians, and celebrities, represented younger or older than expected, and this is all part of the experience. Just like with real human beings, looks change across the years.
Please treat our sculptures as true works of art. Get close, take selfies, admire their details!!! Help us preserve them by avoiding scratching the figure or damaging its hair, so that future visitors can have the opportunity to enjoy!
