You know “going green” is reaching a fever pitch when even the wax representations of eco-friendly individuals reflect their personal values. So is the case with Prince Charles, whose wax figure at Madame Tussauds received a new green makeover and was unveiled this past Wednesday. From the article,

“To create its first “green” figure, workers recycled wax from a 1989 figure of the Prince of Wales and updated it with 82 pounds of organic beeswax, 55 pounds of clay and fiberglass. Artists used organic pigments to color the skin.

Sculptors worked only with their hands and in daylight to cut down on electricity usage. Workers rode bicycles to attend planning meetings during the four-month project.

The remaining carbon the process generated was to be offset by the planting of three trees in Cornwall.”

The cost of constructing the figure — at nearly $289,000 — remains in line with the average for the museum. I know, I can’t believe it’s so affordable either…

Congrats to Madame Tussauds on the effort! While I doubt there will be as much emphasis placed on greening future scary realistic wax figures, I’m hopeful that some of the practices will rub off. For your next statue, Charles, I’d work on that double-chin.
