A new wax figure of David Bowie has been unveiled at Madame Tussauds in London as part of the attraction’s ‘Festival of Music’ experience. Created in collaboration with the Bowie estate, the figure represents the late musician during his iconic era Ziggy Stardust. It was made using information from the star’s 1983 shoot and marks the second wax figure of Bowie to be featured in the museum.
Ziggy’s addition completes Madame Tussauds London’s rebuilt ‘Music Festival’ area, which also highlights waxes from Jimi Hendrix, Stormzy, Ed Sheeran, Beyoncé, Amy Winehouse, and Little Mix.

“David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust transcends generations and music genres,” Tim Waters, GM at Madame Tussauds London, said in a statement.
“We were honoured to work with his estate in what would have been his 75th year and play our small part in keeping his inimitable legacy alive for generations to come.”
The wax attraction revealed its new Bowie figure in January to honor what would have been Bowie’s 75th birthday. Madame Tussauds also published a series of photos that were taken during Bowie’s 1983 session with his model artists.
