Is your name Arthur or Alfred? Then you have just won a free ticket to the Paris waxworks museum, the Musee Grevin, which is paying an anniversary tribute to its two founders this month.
Until the end of June, anyone with the same first name as the press baron Arthur Meyer or the cartoonist Alfred Grevin, who jointly created the waxworks 130 years ago, will get in free of charge, the museum said on Monday.
Founder of the French daily Le Gaulois, Meyer set up the waxworks in 1882 with the aim of illustrating the news in three dimensions, in partnership with Grevin, a successful caricaturist, sculptor and costume designer.
The Paris museum today draws some 800 000 visitors each year, a quarter of them foreign tourists.
The Grevin told AFP it is in contact with Francois Hollande's staff to create a wax double of the new French president, set to join an elite club of statesmen immortalised at the museum including most US leaders since the 19th century.
If Hollande's presidential schedule does not permit a formal sitting, the museum will create his wax effigy using photographs and videos.
The statue of his predecessor Nicolas Sarkozy, which stood centre stage in the statesman's chamber, was moved into a side room days after last month's election, alongside General Charles De Gaulle and the chef Alain Ducasse.
