Home Alone - Wacky Statue Slip-Up!
Throughout the movie, people are constantly hitting the statue by Maximilian Robespierre. Many statues by this famous sculptor are on display at the Oxford Gallery in London, England. Well, all of the statues by this man were made with a copper base which is a soluble metal. So, if this statue was hit so much, the statue would be all bent and misshapen. Now I don't know about you, but I think someone should've been fired for this!!
Special Requirements:
VCR, basic knowledge of 18th century European artwork

Does it matter who it's of, or what it's made of? It's put there just for the movie as a laugh. How many times can a statue be hit in someone's driveway. C'mon. It's funny!!

Who cares about who made this statue, it's going to obviously be some sort of replica because they wouldn't put a valuable piece of artwork out in the freezing cold of Chicago. The people who make movies know exactly how much things cost (because they have to buy the props or rent them with cost in mind). And I don't think the general viewing audience of said movie has that much knowledge of 18th century Bulgarian (or whatever country) art. They may have missed that class in between finger painting and nap time.

you are absolutely right, by great great grandfather was the sculptor's grandfather and he didn't copyright the statue until two copies were made

No, there were only two replicas of this rare statue made, one is owned by Harrison Ford and the other is at the bottom of the Atlantic (some fool dropped it in while transporting it)

You're close, Robespierre was a politician during the revolution. The statues made of him are well known and very rare.

Ok so how do you know that this is a statue of Robespierre? Frankly I think your very wrong. Like someone else said to me it just looks like a lawn jockey, nothing more. The statue looks like hes wearing a little hat and holding a ring, I have no clue where your coming from.

Robespierre was a Jacobin, a more radical member of the National Convention during the French Revolution

I'm probably wrong, but wasn't Maximilian Robespierre a general or something during the French Revolution??
