LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM (AUGUST 23, 2012) (REUTERS) WAX FIGURE OF FRENCH PRESIDENT FRANCOIS HOLLANDE WITH GERMAN CHANCELLOR ANGELA MERKEL AND BRITISH PRIME MINISTER DAVID CAMERON PAN UP FROM FLOOR TO HOLLANDE'S FACE PAN FROM RECEPTION TO WIDE OF POLITICAL AREA IN MUSEUM MEDIA HOLLANDE BEING GROOMED MEDIA / WIDE OF HOLLANDE, CAMERON, U.S. PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA (SOUNDBITE) (English) VICKI GRANT, PRINCIPAL SCULPTOR, SAYING: "The first one we did was in 1873. He's called Louis Adolphe Thiers, I think. So we've always done the French Presidents. We did Nicolas Sarkozy and now we're doing him. We're just trying to keep them up to date. We do have a lot of French visitors and they do ask for the most up-to-date President." RED MADAME TUSSAUDS TAPE HOLLANDE, MERKEL, AND OBAMA NEXT TO DOWNING ST SIGN MADAME TUSSAUDS SPOKESPERSON, MEIKE SCHULZE (SOUNDBITE) (English) MEIKE SCHULZE, MADAME TUSSAUDS SPOKESPERSON, SAYING: "We have created Francois Hollande from research. We have collected footage and pictures of him so we have actually created the entire figure from research, but we have informed his office that we have created his figure, and we hope he's as delighted with the results as we are." HOLLANDE'S FACE (SOUNDBITE) (English) VICKI GRANT, PRINCIPAL SCULPTOR, MADAME TUSSAUDS, SAYING: "It was actually a hundred days. From his inauguration we got the photographs and then it's about five or six weeks on the sculpt. There was actually two sculptors doing that, then it's about...just the hair alone can take four weeks, just to do the hair because each hair is inserted one by one. You've got to be very patient to do that job. It's all ethically sourced, the hair, and it's real hair. And then the wardrobe, we needed to copy the inauguration day so he's wearing the grey suit, with the blue tie, black Oxford shoes and the badge, the Legion D'Honneur badge."
