Who could have thought that an unveiling of Cristiano Ronaldo’s bust can go as viral as it did? Everyone was sharing an unfortunate sculpture made but Emanuel Santos. The statue was mercilessly mocked for its lack of likeness to the football superstar.
After Ronaldo’s bust became a viral sensation, Emanuel felt absolutely defeated. “This is hard to talk about,” says Emanuel while barely holding back tears, “It was too sudden” he reflects on the experience.

Emanuel has picked himself up and he doesn’t let the criticism take the best of him, with this mindset he has created another sculpture in hopes to redeem himself.
