Le Musée Grévin
On 7th December 2010, Le Musée Grévin Paris’s historic home of waxworks, unveiled a new statue of Mika. The museum’s team of artists and sculptor Claus Velte spent six months working with Mika to produce the new wax figure. Mika met with the team on several occasions during his 2010 tour, as well as on other occasions for detailed mouldings and fittings. Very specific measurements took hours to gather, together with precise quantifications of head and body in 3D imaging in order to get an exact match on hand size and shape, head dimensions, and even eye and hair colour, to form an incredible likeness.
To fans’ delight, Mika appeared at the opening to unveil his statue. His double joins 250 other celebrities and will be situated close to the likes of Elton John, George Clooney, Lady Gaga and Penelope Cruz.
