A wax museum in Grand Prairie will add Barack Obama to their list of figures.
Wired PR News.com – As he prepares for his official move into the White House, President Elect Barack Obama will also soon takeover the spot of President George Bush in the Grand Prairie based Louis Tussaud’s Palace of Wax Museum. As reported by CBS 11 News, the museum is sculpting a wax Obama figure that will be displayed in the spot occupied by a George W. Bush figure for the past eight years upon completion.
The new figure, which has been months in the works, is expected to be well matched to the likeness of the President Elect. Sonya Vasquez, who is currently working on the creation, is quoted in the CBS 11 report as stating, “I think he has nice eyes… That seems to be the area that I’m getting stuck on, because I really want to get that across.”
Museum workers reportedly hoped for completion of the figure by Inauguration Day, however, it is not expected to be ready for the next few weeks.
