Apparently the photographer was just as good as the statute head maker. Couldn't get the two in focus either.

Even better. The owner said that anyone opposed to the MJ statue could rot in hell.

Didn't know he had an extendable arm either.

xD the best statue was that Michael Jackson one in Fulham.

I went to the Football Museum in February and can honestly say that the Michael Jackson statue is the best thing in there.

Utter shite.

Looks like this was the original sculpture. So the guy who remodeled it to bronze was the one who fucked up xD

This is a famous case of this woman (above) that walked into her local church in Spain where she decided to restore a famous painting of Christ.

This was the result!!!

 

Obviously her fame was taken to Funchal.

I'm more surprised he didn't request a bottom half to show his abs and boxers.

He's already got a statue with a hard on. The sculptor probably would've skewed the penis.

the lower half of the face looks so out of shape xD looks like his chin and neck can't be defined.

As funny as the bust is seeing the bloke cry about it didn't sit right with me. He's obviously very distraught about the whole thing and at the end of the day he was only trying his best.

I think most people watching would have been hoping his renewed statue would be good. The more the video and new statue can be shared the better.

he got famous for the wrong reason.

was it due to time constraint that he submitted the finish product as ugly as that ???   or was that the best he could do ??

statue has been replaced

Cristiano Ronaldo

Quote

 

A statue of Cristiano Ronaldo that was widely mocked and left football fans scratching their heads has been replaced.

The bronze bust of the Real Madrid and Portugal forward went viral with people questioning its resemblance to the player, after it was placed on display at Madeira airport last year.

Some compared its likeness to former Republic of Ireland captain Niall Quinn, but sculptor Emanuel Santos said his work was just "a matter of taste".

The airport has replaced his original effort with a bust that boasts a greater likeness to Ronaldo.

According to Madeira Island News, Ronaldo's family made the request for the replacement through the CR7 Museum, which is based on the Portuguese island.

The switch took place on the same day that Ronaldo, 33, scored a hat-trickagainst Spain in Portugal's World Cup opener in Russia.

But the change has not gone down well with everyone and a petition has been started to bring the old sculpture back.

"The bust is more an attraction for our island today and we can not accept in any way its replacement," the petition says.

The original statue was revealed in March last year at a ceremony to name Madeira's airport after Ronaldo, who is a local hero on the island for what is seen as his rags-to-riches success.

Santos later had a second attempt to silence his critics with a second sculpture of Ronaldo, commissioned by the website Bleacher Report.
