Princess Diana : Diana's statue, revealed!!!

Diana's statue, revealed!!!

I was not impressed. It's a shame that the artist didn't give her just a little smile. He gave great attention to detail, but he left out the joy.

Only my opinion….

The royal family took her joy

Smells like Ass in here

Re: Diana's statue, revealed!!!

Not the joy she found in children. Certainly not the love she had for her sons. The artist didn't quite capture that.

Re: Diana's statue, revealed!!!

It doesn't really do her justice, but how often do statues capture the essence of the person? Her boys have matching bald spots! I never noticed Harry's until now.

Re: Diana's statue, revealed!!!

I agree about statues. I like classic statues, but when they attempt to depict someone in modern times, it sort of falls short,

I was thinking the same thing about Harry's bald spot when watching the live feed earlier today. I suppose that we rarely see his back view!

Wait and see! He'll go Hollywood and start wearing a rug!

Maybe he and his boss will make a TV reality show like The Osbournes! :D

Re: Diana's statue, revealed!!!

No doubt. I wouldn't be a bit surprised.

I take this as a threat…. @nimda

As a reasonably decent poster here, I expect an apology from the administration as well!!!

It is time to permanently ban this one!

I agree. It missed the mark.

I hope that her sons are pleased with it. I guess that is really all that matters.

If I was Wills, I wouldn't want to get anywhere near him. Even a friendly "Hello. How are you these days?" could wind up being misconstrued and end up as a racial slur against poor misunderstood Meghan on some talk show or pod cast.

There are these things called, "Sharpies," and "Black magic markers."
LOL

Re: Diana's statue, revealed!!!

His name is "Harry" but he's bald like a monkeys ass. Sad.

Re: Diana's statue, revealed!!!

That is why he isn't named "Hairy"!

Re: Diana's statue, revealed!!!

Looking at it from different angles, and also, from a across the water and the garden, it's actually very nice. It gives the feeling of comfort. I suppose that my initial reaction was because the likeness is never really accurate. This was close, but the artist has the mouth all wrong. The likeness is nice though, and the love of children is a big part of what she was about.
I have seen the photo of the inspiration behind this. I get it now.

When you see this statue from across the garden, it really is quite beautiful, not to mention, comforting.

Re: Diana's statue, revealed!!!

Did the royal brothers keep the peace?

Re: Diana's statue, revealed!!!

I don't think so. Harry seemed to try to be light hearted with William, but I had the feeling that William was far too careful about engaging.
I can't say that I blame him. It's a shame, but who can blame him for being careful? The most innocent remark could be twisted and end up on a talk show or a pod cast.

It's sad that there is no longer any trust.

Re: Diana's statue, revealed!!!

Sad, but these sorts of things are sadly not uncommon, even in non-royal families.

Re: Diana's statue, revealed!!!

Sadly, to some degree, there are these types of problems in just about every family.
Isn't it a relief that most of us don't have to worry about these things ending up in the press?

Re: Diana's statue, revealed!!!

Yes, I don't envy that family in the slightest.

Re: Diana's statue, revealed!!!

In the US a Chinese sculptor did a statue of Louis Armstrong and it looked like Chinese Louis Amstrong.

This has the same kind of vibe.

That little girl has had adult bone structure too if you notice.

Diana looks like a man and the girl looks like a man, thus the sculptor does not understand how females look.

Re: Diana's statue, revealed!!!

On that, I agree, but how do you account for the Queen's likeness on all of the coinage from the 1990s up to now? The statue is done by the same artist.

Re: Diana's statue, revealed!!!

The Queen has hard features like a man.

I noticed when I went to London that they have a reverse gene pool. The men look like Harry Potter, the little guy from Top Gear, and David Bowie, meaning female. The women frequently have hard masculine features.

Diana was feminine looking whereas the queen is not.

I'm not sure but the artist really dropped the ball on the statue.

The little girl has a jaw like I do lol.

Re: Diana's statue, revealed!!!

Interesting.
While the Queen always stuck me as a strong woman, I always felt that she was/is a feminine lady. Especially as a young lady, but I agree that she and Diana are quite different.

Here are some other artist's renderings of Diana… I had no idea that there were so many!

Re: Diana's statue, revealed!!!

What's tough about painting women or kids is if you put too dark a shadow on a cheekbone or a jaw, they look like a monster.

That's the issue with some of these statues.

The real picture of Diana shows she has cheekbones but the shadows are only a tiny bit darker than her skin tone. Meanwhile, the statues have these deep dark shadows and look freaky.

Re: Diana's statue, revealed!!!

If you look closely, she does have that half-smile she always had.

The only other way to get a statue made of you is to get killed by a cop while being black.

Re: Diana's statue, revealed!!!

Yes. She does sort of smile. Something is just off about it though. I think it's lovely from a distance with the garden as a whole.

Your other example of getting a statue made of you? I guess I will never be immortalized.

Re: Diana's statue, revealed!!!

George Floyd had super heavy black features that his statue doesn't have.

So, Floyd got a soft look and Diana looks like a tranny!

That figures.

Re: Diana's statue, revealed!!!

Something special between those brothers has gone forever because of one wife. Sad.

Re: Diana's statue, revealed!!!

I agree. Very sad.
