First came the monkey Christ restoration, now St George has been restored into a bit of a gormless idiot


#1

It’s not that bad really, in comparison.


#2

Strong Steve Buscemi vibes.


#3

I’d go as far as to say they’ve done a cracking job.


#4

One of the stronger tracks on Mogwai’s seventh album.


#5

Don’t see what the issue is, all those classical sculptures used to be painted and looked fairly ridiculous by modern standards:

(I know this isn’t a classical statue, but the same is true for medieval art)


#6

Do you reckon the mayor of Estella secretly wanted it to be worse so he could get that sweet, sweet tourist bunce into his city?


#7

Done a really good job on the helmet visor imho


#8

Probably really pissed off he’s got a period-accurate recreation and not some monstrosity. I SAID GIVE ME MONKEY JESUS GODDAMIT


#9

Nice bit of highlighting with Fortress Grey, if I’m not mistaken.


#10

i think it looks pretty good


#11

Also this: An attempt to freshen up the 16th-century polychrome statue has left St George with a rosy pink face and a bold, red-and-grey suit of armour.

Most suits of armour are grey, no?


#12

image

still lose it whenever i see this. it’s so brilliant.


#13

I actually noted this down as a potential future track name


#14

Could easily neck a few Estrella right now.

WORLD CUP!


#15

Wait til this hits The Daily Express

original


#16

It looks like a stop motion character from a kids TV show but I would argue the original was already quite silly looking anyway
