Henry VIII's wives

The photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto took pictures of the wax figues made of  Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleeves, Catherine Howard and Catherine Parr.

I love how life-like they look, quite different from the, quite brilliant, portraits that were made of them in their time.
