Wasn't there a sculpture of some sort of baby Olga or Tatiana in the Maples Room of the Alexander Palace? I know there was one, but I can't be sure if it's one of the infant Grand Duchesses. I'll see if I can find a picture.
"...I am in Tatiana's room...Olga and Tatiana are here. I am sitting and digging in my nose with my left hand... Olga wanted to slap me but I ran away from her swinish hand..."
-Anastasia Nicholaievna Romanova, May 8th, 1913

They http://everleaf.com/chasewinfield/nicholas.htm don't say sculpted of what, but of something meant to last and at that price they should.

Does anyone know of such sculptures on a smaller scale and meant to endure outdoor conditions (of a relatively mild, dry climate--I'm not talking about leaving something out during a Russian winter!)  Has anyone seen any garden-statue-type sculptures of the Romanovs, or even garden statues, of children in sailor suits or the like, which might resemble them?  There are also these tiles http://www.thephotogiftshoppe.com/fucocephti.html where you can have a photograph imprinted.  It's not supposed to wear out or fade, but just in case, does anyone know what protective sealant might be applied to such an image meant to be left out?  Anyone know what sort of adhesive to use to affix such a tile to a larger stone, if advisable?  Also, does anyone know where to get garden crosses of Russian style?  If so, please post here!  Thanks!

I wish I had.. though there is one picture on line with the Romanovs as waxworks. I don't even know where those waxworks truly stand.
All the world's a stage, we're merely actors.

There is a display in one of the buildings on the Peter and Paul Fortress in St. P.  I am not sure if the figures were done by Tussauds but I saw it in the summer and did not think much of it. I may have some photos of it - need to look. Alan

I found this picture of Tatiana doll:

“The most difficult thing—but an essential one—is to love life,
to love it even while one suffers, because life is all.
life is God, and to love life means to love God.”

-- Leo Tolstoy
