A wax figure of Britain's Prince William.
He’s tall, dreamy, famous... and best of all, won’t talk back? He really is Prince Charming!
Meet the life-sized waxwork of Prince William — complete with a sapphire engagement ring affixed to its arm — created by American artist Jennifer Rubell. (It’s now official: Americans really are more obsessed with the royal wedding.)
Rubell said she created this realistic piece of art to help wannabe princesses live out their unrealistic dreams of snagging royal in-laws. “I think it's a feeling that a lot of women have,” Rubell said in a Reuters interview. "The way a man might fantasize about winning the lottery, women might fantasize about marrying Prince William — it's a similar fantasy of security," she said.
If you, like other wannabe royals, are indeed looking to live in denial with a fun photo opp, you can visit the "Engagement" exhibition at the Stephen Friedman Gallery in London until Mar. 5, 2011.
