Redd is a character in Animal Crossing: New Horizons that will often visit your island to sell you a wide selection of paintings and statues. He sells many of his items at a relatively low price, but there is a catch to this discount.
With a total of thirteen different statues you can buy from Redd, there are bound to be a few fakes mixed in that you will want to watch out for to save your Bells. In this guide, we will go over every statue you can find in the game, and which ones are real and fake.
Based on the ‘Shakoki dogu’ statue by Unknown Japanese Jomon Sculptors, shown on the left. The fake version of this sculpture will have antennas sticking out of its head on the left and right, while the real one does not have these. The fake one will also appear slightly more dirty than the real one.
Based on the statue ‘Venus de Milo’ by Alexandros of Antioch, shown on the left. The fake version will be wearing a few necklaces, whereas the real one will not be wearing any.
Based on the famous statue ‘The Thinker’ by Auguste Rodin, shown on the left. This statue will not have any fake version and will always be legitimate. You can buy this one without having to worry about a counterfeit.
Based on the well-known statue ‘David’ by Michelangelo, shown on the left. The counterfeit version of this statue will be holding a book in its right hand, while the original will have nothing in its right hand.
Based on the ‘Kamehameha Statue’ by Thomas R. Gould, shown on the left. This statue will also always be legitimate, with no counterfeits being found in Redd’s collection. You can buy this one knowing it is real.
Based on the sculpture ‘Rosetta Stone’ by Unknown Egyptian Scribes, shown on the left. Telling the difference between these sculptures is quite obvious, as the fake version will be a bright blue while the real version is a gray/beige color.
Based on the sculpture ‘Capitoline Wolf’ by Unknown Sculptors, possibly Antonio del Pollaiuolo, shown on the left. It might be hard to tell with this one, but the fake version depicts the mother wolf sticking its tongue out, while the real one does not have its tongue out.
Based on the sculpture ‘Bust of Nefertiti’ by Thutmose, shown on the left. This sculpture also depicts a fake version with jewelry on, with the fake having an earring on the right ear. The real version isn’t wearing any earrings.
Based on the statue ‘The Townley Discobolus’ by Myron, shown on the left. Another one with jewelry, the fake version will have a watch on its raised arm. The real version will not have a watch.
Based on the statue ‘Olmec Colossal Head’ by Unknown Olmec Sculptors, shown on the left. On first look, this one might take a minute to notice, but the fake version is slightly smiling while the real one is not.
Based on the sculpture ‘Houmuwu ding’ by Unknown Chinese Shang Sculptors, shown on the left. The fake version of this sculpture will have a small third handle in the middle, while the real version does not have this.
Based on the statue ‘Winged Victory of Samothrace’ by Unknown Thracian Sculptors, possibly Poliocretes, shown on the left. This one you will really have to pay attention to, as the fake one is a mirrored version of the original. The left leg is sticking out in the fake version, whereas the real version will have its right leg out.
Based on the statue ‘Terracotta Army Soldier’ by Unknown Chinese Qin Sculptors, shown on the left. The fake version of this statue will be holding a shovel, whereas the real version will not be holding anything.
