Sichuan Province gets its own wax museum with unrecognizable celebrity wax figures created without prior permissions obtained. Here’s a look at what netizens are calling the “ugliest wax museum”.
There’s a new Chinese wax museum in town and it’s ugly as heck. Located in Sichuan Province, the museum displays wax figures of the likes of Maggie Cheung, Zhang Ziyi and Gong Li thatbear zero resemblance to the celebrities in real life.
Despite this, Zhang Shouxiang, the creator of these wax figures and a former curator at the Beijing Wax Museum, has defended his work. According to the China Daily, the artist has said “it is normal for a wax figure to not look exactly like the person it is supposed to depict.”
But it doesn’t matter what he thinks. The South China Morning Post reports that Zhang Ziyi’s wax figure was displayed without her authorization, and her lawyers will be taking action to have her figure removed from the museum.
Hey Zhang Shouxiang, Madame Tussads called – she wants her job back.
