A wax version of Singapore's first Prime Minister, Mr Lee Kuan Yew, and his late wife, Madam Kwa Geok Choo, will be among the attractions at the upcoming Madame Tussauds wax museum.
At a media preview on Thursday (Oct 23), where the wax double of MediaCorp celebrity Zoe Tay was also unveiled, members of the press were also given access to the previously-unannounced wax figures of Mr and Mrs Lee.
The wax figure is based on a photo taken by Mr Lee's niece in 2008 at a Valentine's Day event.
Mr Lee was Prime Minister when Singapore gained Independence in 1965. He married Mdm Kwa in 1947, and stayed with her till her passing on Oct 2, 2010. Mrs Lee was given a state funeral on Oct 7, 2010.
They are not the old members of the Lee family to have a presence at Madame Tussauds. Mr Lee's son, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, unveiled his own wax figure on Tuesday.
The Singapore edition of Madame Tussauds will open in Sentosa on Saturday and will be the seventh in Asia, joining other cities like Bangkok, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Wuhan, Shanghai and Beijing. Tickets are priced at S$30 for adults and S$20 for children.
