(The Tennessean)   Awesome: a bronze statue of Loretta Lynn is installed outside the front door of the Ryman Auditorium. Not so awesome: seems to have been made by the same artist that did the Creepy Lucille Ball statue   (tennessean.com) divider line

Ewww...that's pretty bad.  But not Lucille Ball bad.

Maybe Ronaldo statue bad.

OFFS, can't anyone do a decent realistic representation any more?

Hell, they could have said it was Dale Rogers or Annie Oakley or some other old time movie/tv/legend and I would have said the same thing, "That looks nothing like her", but would have shrugged, just like I am now.

They couldn't have even chosen a 'young hot' Loretta Lynn. Instead of going with aging singer with crows feet.
I'll withhold my judgment until they unveil the Fat Elvis on the Toilet..statue.

Someone is getting some kickbacks there. Here's another from the same venue.

I mean usually you see something like that chasing you in a mortuary with a silver globe flying through the air drilling out souls and blood.

I hope that's supposed to be Harry Dean Stanton.

Looks like a Star Trek version of Loretta Lynn. There are notable forehead and neck issues. "She is of the Shiatkicker race, Captain, from the M-class planet Yehaw."

Loretta Lynn is a racist Trumper piece of white trash shiat.

She literally said at a concert" yall want to know what coal looks like" and put the spotlight on a black security guard.

I think there's just something inherently creepy about bronze statues, it almost doesn't even matter how well the sculpting was or wasn't done.

Henceforth all statues must be made by the person responsible for that.

Subby is wrong and should be ashamed of themselves.

On the right is Scary Lucy, created by Dave Poulin, who got so much criticism for Scary Lucy that he quit sculpting: He did not make the Loretta Lynn statue.

On the left is the statue of Lucille Ball by Carolyn Palmer, which replaced Scary Lucy. Carolyn Palmer did not make the Loretta Lynn statue, either.

"Lynn is known as the Coal Miner's Daughter and the First Lady of Country Music. Her statue was created by Sculptor Ben Watts, who also created the other pieces at the Ryman." (source)

I believe Subby was making a joke there, about how the statue was so bad it could've been made by the same person who did the first Lucille Ball statue.

/not subby
//got the joke
