Rosa Parks, sculpted in wax

Rosa Parks -- or rather, a wax statue of Rosa Parks -- is seen in Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum in Washington, D.C. on October 4, 2007. This was at a gala held to celebrate the opening of the D.C. branch of Madame Tussaud's, which began in London and spread to branches worldwide. Their specialty is lifelike depictions, in wax, of celebrities and public figures like Rosa Parks.
