Madame Tussaud's- Execution of Mary Queen of Scots


Madame Tussaud's is not all about celebrities, as much as their recent flurry of celebrity unveilings shows otherwise. Here is a picture of an historic tableau featuring the execution of Mary Queen of Scots. Convicted of treason, she was sentenced to death by beheading in 1587. It took three swings of the ax to properly remove her head.

The scene is very representative of the historic sets in the museum. Like the Palace of Living Art, the figures look very artistic. Almost as if they were a three dimensional portrait. This may not be the most interesting set ever designed, but the artistry is incredible.
