Michael Jackson’s music will live on long after his death, and so will his image, in several different ways.

The pop star’s legacy was sealed in wax Thursday in Hollywood, California. Madame Tussauds wax museum unveiled its new figure of the King of Pop.

The museum turned the occasion into a day long celebration complete with Jackson imitators and lots of the star’s music.

The museum said it cost $300,000 to make the wax statue, which was crafted in London.
