The controversial statue of Messi caused controversy, since he looks five years older and the final result did not please all the people
Lionel Messi is no stranger to the world of statues of questionable quality. On this occasion, it was the Barcelona wax museum which paid tribute to the Argentine star.
To inaugurate the reopening of the Wax Museum of Catalonia, a statue of the Argentine star with the uniform of the Barcelona and both hands pointing to the sky, the classic celebration of the number 10 shirt. The ‘Flea’ is next to other celebrities such as Michael Jackson, Fernando Alonso and Serena Williams.
It’s perhaps fair to say that the artists weren’t particularly kind to Messi, since the Argentine looks five years older in the statue and even with some wrinkles.
However, at least Messi You can be sure that the latest statue inspired by him is a bit better than the one on display in New York in 2015.

Another star who earned a questionable tribute was Cristiano Ronaldo, who had a bust made at the airport on the island of Madeira that went viral on the internet because of his little resemblance to the star. After that, a new statue was made to CR7.
