TRAVELOGUE

New York: Madame Tussauds

One of our touristy stops in New York was to Madame Tussauds’ wax museum. I’m not a fan of the uncanny valley, but even I could appreciate how uncanny the sculptures were.

Robin Williams.

Jesca beside Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow.

Salvador Dali and his famous surrealist painting.

I Love Lucy.

Muhammad Ali (Cassius Clay).

Andy Warhol.

Jimi Hendrix.

The Beatles.

Michael Jackson (white version).

Superman.

Iron Man. (a little bit of a wtf moment when I saw it).

Hulk.

    I’ve never been to a wax museum but they seem like they would be creepy because the figures look so real, but not, you know? Also, really curious to know what Andy Warhol would think of his figure. On the one hand, I think he would love the tackiness and spectacle of it all, but on the other hand, he might be appalled at his likeness.

      PRECISELY. Oh the uncanny valley of doom. :S
      I’m not sure what he would think, since he appears to me as someone who might get offended easily (might be my biases), but at the same time his mind might work in different ways to appreciate the possible subversive nature of his likeness in regards to his work. XD
