Sculptures are one of the most emblematic ways of honoring an athlete. An NFL legend, Peyton Manning was deservedly inducted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame last weekend and delivered an emotional speech, but his bust wasn't what people were expecting and social media was flooded with memes.
Busts are a great way to honor a sporting legend, but they have to deal with risks. The infamous Cristiano Ronaldo statue proved how a sculpture can receive heavy criticism when it fails to make an accurate impression.
This time, Manning's bust was all over the Internet as fans considered his forehead was too big and his face seemed quite unhappy. Let's take a look at what the Internet had to say about it.
