Madame Tussauds first opened its doors in 1835 in London. Each Madame Tussauds statue was sculpted using the expertise of the most important sculptors who use the same techniques used by the world-famous Marie Tussauds. To sculpt a wax figure that looks like a human could take a sculptor about 12 weeks in total, during which time the team documents 500 accurate body measurements, creating real hair strands one by one, applying endless layers of paint to build skin tones, and more. Which helps to achieve the highest degree of reproduction of the shape of the stars and famous personalities of “Madame Tussauds”, which is why it has gained worldwide fame for more than two centuries. Time, precision, and craftsmanship are factors that influence the cost of these Madame Tussauds wax figures; Which can be worth up to 700,000 dirhams (£150,000) depending on the details required.
