Have any of you seen this scary pic? I have been looking through Google images for Freddie Pictures (for a project I'm working on) and I came across this scary picture from a Moscow Wax Museum, the article wouldn't come up but it said something about this exhibition highlighting the dangers of something. Not quite sure.

Here's the pic:

I just wanted to add that I feel so sad about it. They should just leave Freddie alone. He'll always be remembered for the beautiful person that he was!

Why would they make a wax figure of Freddie close to death? That is a bit disturbing...why couldnt they just settle for the Wembley Freddie!

That doesn't even remotely resemble Freddie not to mention the fact that it is highly disturbing and disgusting to even have a wax figure like that...

That is honestly quite disturbing, and if I were Freddie I would be quite insulted by that.

I hate to nitpick, but it probably sold better when they called it "Don't You Forget About Me".

PS That's pathetic. It doesn't even look like Freddie Mercury. I'm sure it looks like someone else. Bruce Spence maybe.

PPS - he doesn't even have a cat with him!

This wax figure is absolutely uncalled for. Why do they have to label HIM specifically?? First of all, I'll agree with everyone else in saying it looks nothing like him, sick or not, and do you honestly think he'd have a blanket like that over him?? Nope...probably something made of velvet or something...I don't care what nationality they are, it's just disgusting...

Heheehehe.

I've figured it out, the sculpture actually looks more like JFK with no hair.

Oh my good lord!
They wouldn't like it if i made a waxwork of their mother all pale and thin, sitting in a wheelchair, coughing up blood and writing her last will and testament! AND make people PAY to see it as a day out and take photos!
Terrible!

Its looks nothing like Freddie before his death and if I recall the last papparazzi photos taken of him where of Freddie with a beard.
