Heatwave melts six-foot Abraham Lincoln wax statue

During an intense summer heatwave in Washington, DC, a six-foot-tall wax statue of Abraham Lincoln underwent an unexpected transformation at Garrison Elementary School.

The statue, created by artist Sandy Williams IV and funded by the non-profit organization CulturalDC, began to melt significantly as temperatures soared to 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

As the heat intensified, Lincoln’s head detached, a leg separated from the body, and the chair supporting him sank into the softened ground.

Despite efforts to protect it, the wax statue, designed to change like a candle, couldn’t withstand the extreme heat, leading to widespread attention with viral photos and discussions across the internet.
