5 Most Overrated Statues of All Time

Unlike these overrated lists...

5 Most Overrated Paintings of All Time

5 Most Overrated Photos of All Time

5 Most Overrated Art Movements of All Time

To keep it uniform, we didn't include works such as when some guy thought it would be a good idea to carve the mugs of former U.S. Presidents into the side of a mountain.

Abstract pieces aren't on here either.

What made the cut? Michelangelo and a baby who can't control his little baby bladder.
