"We're honored to create a figure for Vice President Harris and reflect this significant moment in U.S. history for guests inside Madame Tussauds," museum spokeswoman Brittany Williams announced in a statement, according to WNBC-TV of New York.
Harris grew to be the first woman, Black or Asian person to serve as an American vice president when she was sworn in Jan. 20.
Madame Tussauds always makes a presidential wax figure though the honor has never been given to the person a heartbeat away from the office.
The statement came as Harris and President Biden are regarding the administration’s first 100 days in office. The museum is further working on a Biden figure.
"We were keen to focus on her smile and the warmth in her eyes," David Burks, the principal sculptor, told CNN Thursday. "It's that twinkle in the eye that's so hard to capture... a genuine warmth that's really important to get into our figures."
Burks and Madam Tussauds' team of sculpture artists in London are creating the clay heads with the help of hundreds of photos of the leaders. Usually Burks would meet his subject, but the Covid-19 pandemic has curtailed any such plans.
The museum announced Harris and Biden’s clay heads were made by a team of studio artists in London and "represent meticulous detail captured by researching hundreds of images to achieve an exact likeness of the famous U.S. leaders' faces," according to WNBC.
The figures will take between four and six months to produce and will be revealed later this year, the museum announced, according to CBS.The heads were finished in six weeks.
Madame Tussauds will spend around $300,000 on each model, he added.
"It's quite a price, but we're... making them look as authentic as possible so the guests get the sense they could move at any minute or that they can put their arm around their heroes," Burks said.
Biden and Harris will be dressed as they were on Inauguration Day.
Madame Tussauds is remembered for its celebrity and movie character wax figures as well as politicians and historical figures.
Madame Tussauds will set up the statues later this year in its "Oval Office" exhibition. When the museum reopened in August with Covid-19 restrictions, the wax figure of former President Donald Trump greeted guests at the entrance wearing a mask.
