The artist behind a much-maligned sculpture of Cristiano Ronaldo claims the Real Madrid superstar is happy with the design.
“Even Jesus did not please everyone. This is a matter of taste, it’s not as simple as it seems,” Emanuel Santos, the creator of the piece said in an interview with Portuguese website Globo Sports.
“I used photos of Cristiano Ronaldo that I searched on the internet as a base. I put the photos next to me and started working on the bust.”
“Cristiano saw the photos that his brother sent him. I was with the brother at Cristiano’s museum in Madeira and from the messages he sent, I could tell that he liked what he saw.”
