The wax is the universal material, being used for different purposes since ages: beginning from preserving mummies, protecting oil paintings from damages and ending with making moulds of dead faces and wax sculptures placed in churches.
Kiev museum of wax figures adopted the tradition of creating wax sculptures from private Parisian museum of doctor Courtier and grand Londoner Museum of Madame Tussaud. By the way, Madame Tussaud first used to be a Courtier's learner and worked in his studio. Sometime later she went on tour after tour with her husband to exhibit her wax exponents to European audience.
