What has gray hairs and two fake bodyguards?

A wax version of President Barack Obama.

The statue is now standing with the likenesses of other world leaders at a wax museum in Paris.

The sculptor has never met Obama, and created the masterpiece from press photos.

The wax Obama is dressed in a dark suit, and looks very serious.

The sculptor says the statue is part of a gathering of heads of state, featuring France's Nicolas Sarkozy, Germany's Angela Merkel and Russia's Vladimir Putin.

He says that's why it has "kind of an official attitude" and is "a little bit stiff."
