    This takes some beating:


    NB It's Liverpool footballer Mo Salah...allegedly. o_O

    This one is pretty naff as well:

    Christiano Ronaldo...o_O

    As is this:


    Diana & Dodi...apparently...:eek:

    Other suggestions?

    The first one's body looks so not in proportion. Huge head and tiny arms and hands!

    Don't know about worst, but possibly the most redundant statue in the world?


    "Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

    Yeah, right.

    Liverpool is the Athens of bad public art. So many examples.

    Every time I see this statue in Ashton-under-Lyne I think of a tumour, and not football.
