History of Wax Art
Although its organization is uncertain, wax sculpturing is considered one of the oldest art forms in history. Ancient Egyptians used the “Lost Wax” process to create deity figures for funeral rites.
The Romans modeled masks and statues in wax, presented in ceremonial processions.
During Medieval Europe, the practice of wax modeling was often related to sorcery.
It was not until the 19th century, when Madam Marie Tussaud, a talented sculpture, gained popularity with her famous exhibition of waxworks in England; thus, laid the groundwork for today’s wax museums.
