In China, Trump wax statue maker feels effect of coronavirus

A technician works on a wax figure of U.S. President Donald Trump at a workshop of Shanghai Maiyi Arts, following the global outbreak of the coronavirus, in Shanghai, China August 21, 2020. For Zeng Sheng, the manager at Shanghai Maiyi Arts, this autumn should have been a boon for business: with the U.S. presidential election, demand for the centre's wax replicas of Donald Trump should have been off the charts.

Instead, the spread of the coronavirus has halted new orders and stalled overseas travel, including to and from the United States. He is now holding off on producing a replica of Joe Biden.  REUTERS/Aly Song

A technician demonstrates for the camera the assembling of a wax figure of President Trump at a wax museum of Shanghai Maiyi Arts in Shanghai, China August 21, 2020. Shanghay Maiyi Arts was founded in 2012 as a manufacturer and supplier of wax figures.

Located in the outskirts of Shanghai, about an hour's drive from the city centre, its exhibition hall also doubles as makeshift museum, where guests can pose next to replicas of North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, martial arts star Jackie Chan, and others.

Zeng says that by 2019, the company was shipping up to 700 figures annually to customers, with about one-third going overseas. REUTERS/Aly Song

The company uses specialists to make a replica's hair and clothing. It can take three months to bring a figure to fruition, from start to finish. REUTERS/Aly Song

A wax figure of President Trump is seen at a workshop of Shanghai Maiyi Arts in Shanghai, China August 21, 2020. Although Trump is the company's best-selling model in the United States, in China, the top seller is something closer to home: a replica of a security guard, asleep and slumped in a chair, brings in the most orders.

Last year the shop produced 16 Trump wax statues, six of which went abroad. REUTERS/Aly Song
