Kamala Harris is making history once again. She will be the first vice president of the United States to have a wax figure at Madame Tussauds. The museum made the announcement on Wednesday as she and President Biden prepared for their 100th day in office.

The wax museum released the following statement: 

Kamala Harris made history when she was sworn in on January 20th becoming the first woman, first Black person and first Asian American vice president. Madame Tussauds New York is adding another first to Harris’ list of achievements by creating a wax figure in her likeness; an honor that has never-before been extended to a vice president.”  

The clay heads of Biden and Harris’ wax figures took six weeks to complete by a team in London, Madame Tussauds reported. The remainder of their figures will take between four to six months to finish.
