Australian school covered with black cloth “potentially indecent” statue of the Saint, sending the boy a loaf of bread.

In a message posted on Facebook, chief Executive officer of the school Simon Cobiac apologized to the school community for “any anxiety” caused by the statue.

He said that the school approved the project and ordered the sculptor in Vietnam, but “after the arrival of the three-dimensional statue seemed to [school] potentially obscene”.

We will remind, in the hometown of Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portuguese Funchal (Madeira island) in honor of the football player was set a bust of star player, which is a little like the original. To be less polite, the statue does not look like Ronaldo. And it could not fail to note the fans of the Portuguese. In Network is harshly ridiculed the strange bronze creature.
