The Federal Chancellor finds his place among former heads of state such as Barack Obama or Helmut Kohl. In the future he can be seen in the wax museum Madame Tussauds in Berlin.

The wax figure of Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) for the Madame Tussauds wax museum was unveiled at the Reichstag building in Berlin on Wednesday morning. The wax image of the politician, which was presented during the general debate in the Bundestag, looks confusingly similar to the real Olaf Scholz.

The character wears a blue suit, tie and white shirt. She smiles slightly mischievously and has slight wrinkles on her forehead. Shortly after the red cloth was pulled down, school classes and tourists took the opportunity to have their picture taken with the figure.

According to Madame Tussauds, work on the figure began on the day the Chancellor was sworn in on December 8, 2021. Like the Chancellor himself, the figure is 1.70 meters tall and has a total weight of 35 kilograms.

The production took a good eight months, for the replica of the head around six weeks and eight kilograms of wax were necessary. 20 artists worked on the figure. Measurements were taken using videos and photos, as it was not possible to try him out.

On Wednesday, the Scholz figure went to the wax museum on Unter den Linden. There, Scholz will be seen in politics alongside former heads of state such as Barack Obama, Helmut Kohl and Mikhail Gorbachev. dpa
