Sonu solved this quiz in no time. The excerpts from Sonu's email have been added at the end of this post. Please do read that.)
We came across an enthusiastic photographer while admiring the wax figures of the world leaders, the Hollywood and the Bollywood stars at Madame Tussauds museum, London. She was taking her own sweet time to complete the shot. Like several other courteous spectators, we stopped for her to complete the shot. The flash never turned on. The camera would not click. Careful examination of the girl revealed the deception. She was a wax figure. Slightly embarrassed, we smiled and I took the picture of the wax figure of the photographer. I found this to be the most intriguing and creative method to demonstrate the talent of the creators.
I tried the same method to show the beauty of the wax figures but ‘Sonu’ clearly caught me.
Sonu, great job. I am very interested to know how you figured it out. Please email me if you can and I will publish it here or capture in the comments.

Some more pictures from the museum.
Recently one of my friend emailed with this link of a wax museum in India. I think it is pretty good. Check it out and decide yourself.
Excerpts from Sonu’s email
"Armed with engineering background, strong analysis skills and a wise professor’s advice to be observant, I examined the key object i.e. the picture in the quiz. Careful observation of the picture exposed unusual shine in the fingers. Zooming and reviewing enlarged view of the abnormal fingers confirmed my suspicion and I ‘cracked’ the quiz."
