First it was Cristiano Ronaldo at the Madeira airport renaming and now Gareth Bale.
Emanuel Santos was commissioned by Paddy Power to create a bust of Wales and Real Madrid winger, Gareth Bale ahead of the Champions League final, and has produced a masterpiece!
The artefact which took Santos 264-man hours to complete, weighs 40kg and has an estimated value of £25,000.
“I have become a bit famous since my Ronaldo artwork with people telling me how much it made them smile, so to bring another famous footballer to life is a true honour,” Santos said.
“Maybe I’ll create another one to make it a hat trick as they say in football.”
