For Tuba Büyüküstün’s figure, unlike the previous ones, a new technology was used for the first time in measuring. Photographing and 3D scanning were performed with the technology that uses 96 cameras that shoot 360 degrees. In addition to the use of technology, the artist’s face and body measurements were taken and recorded one by one, using traditional measurement techniques.
The highly anticipated figure making will begin with the creation of a clay figure outline. The construction phases, which will proceed with the approval of the artist at each stage, will continue with the mold removal by filling the clay outline with wax, and the application of details such as hair, make-up, and costumes.
The figure will take approximately 8 months to be made and will meet with its fans in Istanbul in 2022 after its construction is completed.
