Dashing, white jacket complete with insignia ranks, cane command, a smile. A perfect figure for a replica of the former first president of Indonesia, Sukarno. Wax figure is a design museum Madame Tussauds Bangkok, Thailand. Starting Monday (24/9), Sukarno was immortalized by the famous museum’s wax figure.
The inauguration was attended by the figure of Sukarno’s daughter who is also a former President of Indonesia, Megawati. The replica will be entered in the History section and Leader. According to Bambang Asrini Widjanarko cultural, Sukarno figure is the most suitable to represent Indonesia in the eyes of the world. “No (president of Indonesia) are as strong as Sukarno,” said Bambang.
Unfortunate is the placement of a statue by Bambang Sukarno, who should be in Madame Tussauds museum in central London, England. For Sukarno is a world leader when it aligned with U.S. President John F. Kennedy or Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev.
As for the selection of the figure of Sukarno is shown with a white jacket with the insignia of rank, Bambang deemed appropriate. Because historically, Sukarno was a civilian. “On each occasion he used the baton official. Shows civilian supremacy as the equivalent military.”
Besides replica of Soekarno, Madame Tussauds Bangkok features a mock Bruce Lee, Michelle Yeoh, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Madonna, and Michelle Obama. This museum is one of several branches of Madame Tussauds, based in London.
