Compare and contrast. In spite of obvious similarities, which one of these statues stands in the Galleria dell'Accademia in Florence, Italy, and which stands in the Houston airport?

The eight foot tall statue of George W. Bush (on the right) stands in the Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas. It was sculpted by David Adickes, the Houston artist who has sculpted numerous statues of presidents for public parks. The pigeons love his work. Unfortunately, this one is indoors.

The one on the left is by some Italian guy.

The similarity was pointed out by David, at the Ironic Sans blog.
