Gareth Bale Statue/Bale Bust

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!

“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.”
