Informative Statue: The Rosetta Stone
Another easy-to-spot fake. The real Rosetta Stone should be colored black and has incryptions of ancient languages. The fake one is colored blue.
Motherly Statue: Capitoline Wolf
Is the wolf’s tongue hanging out? That’s definitely a fake! The real statue has an open mouth but the tongue is not hanging out.
Mystic Statue: Bust of Nefertiti by Thutmose
Check for earrings. The real Bust of Nefertiti has incomplete ears and does not have earrings. If yours has an earring, it’s a fake.
Robust Statue: Discobolus
Ancient Greeks didn’t wear a watch last time i checked. If your statue has a wristwatch, that’s a forgery
Rock Head Statue: Olmec Head
The real Olmec Head has a serious face. If you see one with a smile, don’t buy it.
Tremendous Statue: Houmuwu Ding
This is a bronzeware from the ancient world and it doesn’t come with a lid. If you have a Tremendous Statue with a lid, it’s a counterfeit.
Valiant Statue: Nike of Samothrace
Nike is a Greek God of Victory and the original statue has its right leg forward. If you’re seeing one with the left leg forward, it’s a fake.
