Re: The "I Love Lucy" bronze

The likeness is poor. But in defense of the sculptor it is difficult to do using a few photos of the deceased. It is a challenge to work from photos even if you have dozens of them from many directions (lighting can deceive and alter the true features).
Also there is the budget to consider. How much he was paid would determine how much time he could spend on it and so affect the detail and likeness.
