Simulation Wax


YANG Zhenzhong created a realistic image of YAO Ming the basketball player entirely in the style of his sculpture in Madam Tussauds Wax Museum including posture, clothing and props,etc. However, the artist shrank YAO’s height from 2.26 cm down to 1.60 cm only. Viewers on site can then take photos together with the shortened sports celebrity.

First displayed in GUAN XI / Beijing Today Art Museum HOMEWORK , Beijing, Today Art Museum (2011).
