Football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has spent £20,000 on a waxwork of himself to take pride of place in his Spanish mansion.
The Real Madrid player paid for the sculpture after making numerous visits to see a similar statue of himself (pictured above) in the Spanish capital's Museum of Wax. Ronaldo, who used to play for Manchester United, hired British waxwork sculptor Michael Wade to make the replica at his renowned studio in Bridport, Devon. See the replica after the cut.
The 30-year-old vain footballer even got his personal hairdresser to ensure the wax figure has his trademark hairstyle.
Taken by French photographer Eric Lafforgue, the photos document the life of the Fon tribe, who say the dolls possess the child's spirit and have the power to bring the family good or bad luck, depending on how well they are treated.
Every day, the dolls are cradled, 'fed', scrubbed clean and put to bed on immaculate linens - all in an effort to keep them from being unhappy and cursing the family with evil magic.

Chelsea footballer John Obi Mikel has secretly fathered two children with different women, it has emerged today.
The 28-year-old midfielder is dad to a four-year-old son and a one-year-old daughter after short relationships with the women.
The Nigerian international player, whose side lost 2-1 at home to Crystal Palace yesterday, makes sure he provides for his two children.
He is understood to have bought a £500,000 house in 2013 in the Home Counties for his son and mum and is keen to play a part in the boy's life.
A source told The Sun:
A Nigerian health tourist who cost the NHS £145,000 having quintuplets has said she never even saw a bill.
Bimbo Ayelabola, 37, had to have a complex caesarean section after travelling to Britain while pregnant in 2011. The operation and neo-natal care for the five babies cost the Health Service in excess of £145,000 – but Miss Ayelabola never paid a penny towards the bill.
And now it has emerged the hospital involved will not chase her for the money.
Miss Ayelabola has since returned to her home city of Lagos, where she is a successful make-up artist who drives a £17,000 car.
When confronted by the Daily Mail about the NHS bill, she said:
