Wax statues are often so realistic looking you can hardly tell them apart from the person they're made to resemble, but it's hard for wax sculptors to reach this eerie-high level of hyperrealism.
So instead of trying to do the famous person's face justice some sculptors turn the whole thing into a horrific mess by using The Penguin as reference for Meryl Streep.
Sculptors of wax statues shaped like celebrities are also known for making odd choices about the details they include in each piece, which is how we end up with a sweaty J. Biebs statue nobody wants.
And speaking of pop stars named Justin- get a load of this wax statue of Justin Timberlake, aka J. Tim. You can't say it doesn't not resemble him just a little bit, I mean the hair color's spot on!
