The incredible life-size effigy that was built in the image of the Portuguese star with his number 7 jersey in the Portuguese national team took more than 200 hours before being finally transformed into a breathtaking work of art.
Chocolate maker Jorge Cardoso, who built the statue, revealed that the sculpture was made in his spare time at the Suard chocolate factory.
Impressively, the Nike symbol, the UEFA European Championship logo and the badge of Portugal are also added to the chocolate statue of the Portuguese, the sculpture closely resembling the ‘hitman’ of Juve.
In terms of physique and hair, the statue could be considered a more professional design considering the other “horror” ice statues that were made for the Portuguese star in the past.
Cristiano Ronaldo is not a new football celebrity to have benefited from a single statue. In his hometown, the Juventus star unveiled his statue two years ago as part of events to rename Madeira Airport after him.
In 2014, another statue of Ronaldo was unveiled by Ricardo Velos, but it was an artistically poor sculpture that could give Ronaldo a bit of a nightmare. Cristiano Ronaldo also received a fairly noble remodeling after the unveiling of the statue of the Portuguese star at a popular festival in Tuscany, Italy.
The Juve star’s effigy received a form of “Iron Man” dummy as part of activities set up for the Viareggio carnival, reports claiming that the new robot-like statue was constructed from hard metals from head to toe.
