amsterdam - We can all remember it: the hilarity surrounding the unveiling of the first bust of star footballer Christiano Ronaldo. Now he gets one that does look like him.
When Cristiano unveiled a bust of himself last March at the airport of his native city of Madeira, the creation was not very popular to say the least. Although the image here and there had something of the Portuguese top athlete, it was actually just a monster.
Artist Jose Antonio Navarro Arteaga wanted to avoid such a blunder when he was commissioned to make a 'Ronaldian' bust for the museum of Real Madrid. He succeeded there and delivered a good result. Ronaldo himself was not present this time- perhaps out of fear of a second blamage- at the unveiling.
