The Lucille Ball statue in New York got a MUCH needed facelift...
The new statue, sculpted by artist Carolyn D. Palmer, was unveiled today at the Lucille Ball Memorial Park in Ball’s hometown of Celoron, NY. Today would have been the TV legend’s 105th birthday.
“I not only wanted to portray the playful, animated and spontaneous Lucy, but also the glamorous Hollywood icon,” said Palmer. “I just hope that all the Lucy fans are pleased and that Lucille Ball herself would have enjoyed this image of her.”
This is the park’s second attempt at a Lucy likeness, following sculptor Dave Poulin’s 2009 massive fail. Poulin’s unintentionally heinous statue, with its demon eyes, horse teeth and altogether lack of resemblance to the Lucy everyone loved, prompted a public outcry and was soon dubbed “Scary Lucy.”
Oh...and they weren't kidding when they said the previous statue was scary...
That looks like something that would eat your soul.
