Orange Is the New Wax: Prague Museum Unveils Trump Statue

Just hours remain before the US Presidential inauguration, when Donald J. Trump will be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States in Washington D.C.

But the American president has already arrived here in Prague, at least the kinder, gentler, completely silent version of him.



Museum Grévin Prague has unveiled their wax interpretation of the president elect, which will become a part of its “major world politicians” exhibit.

Parisian Sculptor Eric Saint Chaffray made the Trump statue; he is also the artist behind the Barack Obama wax likeness.

According to Novinky.cz, who covered the event earlier today, the Paris team also created a Hillary Clinton statue, beginning work on both models well before the results of the election.

The museum’s web site describes the new statue as the third largest after Gerard Depardiaeau and the Golem; 23 kg of wax was used in its manufacture. 

To celebrate the inauguration, the dummy will be set up in the White House, erm, Grévin photo booth this weekend.
