Madame Tussauds Sets to Work on British Premier

London — Theresa May’s automated slogans and

stilted election campaign may have earned her the nickname Maybot,

but an even more lifeless incarnation of the prime minister is about to

be unveiled, the British Guardian newspaper said.

Madame Tussauds has announced the commission of a wax

figure of Theresa May that is to be placed outside the Downing Street

set at the London attraction, joining political heavyweights, such as

Donald Trump and Angela Merkel.

Released images show the first stages of the process of creating

the May figure, where the head is fashioned in clay before the wax

mould is formed.

Since the controversial election result, the highly talented team at

Madame Tussauds London have been working tirelessly to create a

stunning likeness of the new PM, the London attraction said. These

official clay head shots created by principal sculptor Stephen Mansfield

show how they have perfectly captured the likeness of the most

powerful woman in British politics”.

The finished figure will be unveiled later this year.

The process of creating a wax figure typically takes around three

to four months, with a team of sculptors spending about 170 hours

moulding, before hair insertors and colourists add the finishing


The chosen outfit and shoe selection remains a tightly guarded

secret, but the choice will be an exact replica of one of May’s

expansive and headline grabbing collection, the attraction said.

Edward Fuller, General Manager of Madame Tussauds London,

added: Following the recent general election, we look forward to

hearing the consensus of the great British public as we reveal the first

stages of Theresa May’s wax figure in creation. While the prime

minister’s Brexit strategy may be unclear, we can be sure that her

completed figure will bear a striking resemblance to the woman herself

when it launches later this year,” the Guardian reported.
