Remember the painting of Jesus that an elderly woman "fixed"? Well if you thought you'd seen it all with that painting, think again. A bizarre new bust of Cristiano Ronaldo is now making the internet collectively question their eyesight.
The bust, which was unveiled at Madeira Airport in Portugal, looks strangely nothing like Cristiano — even though it's supposed to be of him. The internet couldn't believe what it was seeing and reacted accordingly.
Memes and jokes soon followed.

The sculptor behind the bust, Emanuel Santos, defended his work. "It is impossible to please the Greeks and Trojans. Neither did Jesus please everyone," he said to The Guardian. "This is a matter of taste, so it is not as simple as it seems. What matters is the impact that this work generated."
Santos has a point, but we're still not sure about this bust.
