HONG KONG, CHINA--Media OutReach--June 5, 2014-- Indonesian founding father and one of Asia's most important  national and international leaders, President Soekarno, made his way to Madame Tussauds Hong Kong today.

Dressed in his trademark white military uniform displaying the colourful military ribbons, President Soekarno wears a black Peci hat and sports his friendly smile as he meets and greets the people of Hong Kong. Guests of Madame Tussauds Hong Kong can get up close to this influential leader and bear witness to his wisdom that has inspired so many people.

 

Born in 1901 in Surabaya, Indonesia, Soekarno proclaimed his country's independence on August 17, 1945, and served as its first president until 1966. He died in 1970, leaving an enormous legacy of supporting global peace and also sowing the seeds of modern Indonesia's success.

 

"It is a great honour to host the new statue of President Soekarno, who has had a profound influence on the development of, not only Indonesia, but the Asia region as a whole. By bringing together world leaders, celebrities and other famous people, Madame Tussauds Hong Kong has become a pivotal attraction that combines entertainment with education and provides a valuable experience for the whole family," says Kelly Mak, General Manager of Madame Tussauds Hong Kong.

 

To ensure that President Soekarno's wax figure was recreated with precision, the sculptors went through an intricate research process to produce the wax figure, including gathering information from Soekarno's family and watching hours of video footage. President Soekarno's wax figure will be on display at the Historical and National Heroes section, further strengthening the strong array of international leaders already present at the attraction.
