Play-Doh People from History

Many historical figures are easily recognized from photographs and well-known paintings, but can you identify these notable (or notorious) people made from Play-Doh?
Since these are original sculptures, the resemblance is not always as accurate as I would like. Hopefully, that just adds to the challenge! :)

Thanks MG! I should have asked you to suggest a historical figure from Brazil. Pele, maybe?
+2
Level 37
Nov 7, 2021
Pelé would be a good choice as he is born on my state as he is the absolute king of soccer (don’t trust on Argentinians with Maradona 😅😜), but also cool picks of Brazilians could be Juscelino Kubitscheck (president, who built Brasília), Ayrton Senna (one of the best F1 racers ever), or Oscar Niemeyer (architect, with many beautiful buildings all over the world).

But don’t feel obligated to add a Brazilian on this series! Is already gorgeous the way it is! :)

Before anyone complains about Frederick Douglass’ inclusion - he was the most photographed man of the 19th century, making it an important test if people can still identify him by appearance today

Woke has nothing to do with it. This is a great effort and brilliant quiz, but that does not look much like Douglass other than the clue of the wispy strands of white hair. Douglass had a broader face and fuller hair at the sides in most photos. Although not sure I can come up with another historical figure that looks like that.

Again, love the quiz and would like to see more.

Like many others I'm off to look up Frederick Douglass - not all famous names make it across the Atlantic Crusty and Europe has many, many heroes of its own. I was astonished to discover the other day that my Canadian cousins hadn't heard of Edith Piaf.

Looking back at them all after the fact, the same color was used for the skin of Marley, Douglass, Gandhi, and... Stalin. "Uncle Joe's Cabin" probably wouldn't have had the same impact...

It's shameful that Douglass is by far the least recognized.

I don't think Confucius belongs on here. Although he is not the only one on here whose likeness predates photography (or oil painting, for that matter), there's really nothing that identified him as him - that really sets him apart. At least with Cleopatra, the jewelry really narrows it down. I only got him because I had plenty of time to keep typing a bunch of things really quickly to see what "stuck", and since he was vaguely East Asian looking, it wasn't too hard. I think that Mao would be better because any representation of him could be nailed down as being more accurate.
