It is one of the many attractions of Amsterdam and is part of a series of wax museums scattered all over the world (the most famous is the one in London), which attract many visitors every year.
And, today, those who visit the city of the Netherlands have one more reason to go there: among the numerous wax statues of life-size celebrities at the Madame Tussauds Amsterdam museum there will also be that of our Elettra Lamborghini, the queen of twerking for be clear.
The museum chose her because the singer is very famous in Holland, especially because of her husband, the Dj Afro Jackoriginally from the Netherlands.
To make the wax statue of the “statuary” Elettra it took six months of work by twenty Dutch artists, with several sessions during which the artists took measurements, took hundreds of photos and even made a 3D scan to faithfully reproduce his physique, from the shading of the eyes to the tone of the skin, from the color of the hair to the conformation of the teeth.
But now that the wax statue that faithfully reproduces it has finally been finished it will take flight to the capital and will find its place among some of the international pop stars such as Michael Jackson, Beyoncé, Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber.
Madame Tussauds museums around the world
The idea of opening wax museums exhibiting sculptures of life-sized characters that made history came from the French artist Marie Tussaudto whom we owe the name of the museums, between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
The woman was a master in the art of wax modeling and, throughout her life in Paris, she devoted herself to the creation of the wax faces of men victims of the French Revolution. At the time of her death, her collection consisted of approximately 400 wax works.
The first Madame Tussauds museum opened in London. It exhibited all the works of Marie Tussaud. When the museum became the property of Merlin Entertainment, which deals with entertainment and which owns Gardaland and Legoland, among others, it was decided to continue with the wax museums and to open new ones, gradually expanding them with statues of new characters. taken from the world of sport, culture and the show system.
The one in London, the most famous, houses statues of the characters who wrote history, from King Henry VIII to George W. Bush, passing through Adolf Hitler to Queen Elizabeth II.
Madame Tussauds Amsterdam opened in 1970 initially in Kalverstraat and then moved, in 1991, to Dam square, or simply “The Dam”, the most famous square in Amsterdamwhere there is also the Royal Palace.
The museum houses a large collection of statues divided into categories, from political leaders to characters from film and music to Marvel superheroes including the Avengers and Spider-Man. And, in recent years, it has gone from a static to an interactive museum.
Today, in addition to London and Amsterdam, there are Madame Tussauds wax museums in Berlin, Istanbul, Hong Kong, Las Vegas, New York, Shanghai, Washington, Vienna, Sydney, Blackpool (in the UK), Orlando and Hollywood, Los Angeles.
