A little lonely girl, a daughter of the hereditary hangman, was lonely because everybody was afraid of her family, which is not surprising. Her mother had a lover and that was the reason why she and the girl, as known as Mary, moved to Paris. Her new father was close to the king of France and made wax statues for monarch and his family. Helping her father was the first step for young Mary in wax art. Soon she made her first figures of Voltaire and Franklin. And after a long time her son placed her waxworks it the museum.
But the story of Madame Tussauds doesn’t end. The collection is getting bigger nowadays. Every famous person finds the place for their double in there. There are actors and actresses, singers and music bands which either exist now or existed years ago.
