- The artist of UP female oblation statue was accused of plagiarism
- It was the Dutch artist Elisabet Slientrao who made the accusation
- She made 'Virgins of Apeldoorn' in 2001
Fernand Cacnio made the "Female UP Oblation."
It was a woman without any clothing on, suspended in the air.
Her long flowing hair as if to support all her weight.
The "Virgins of Apeldoorn" made by the Dutch artist Elisabet Slientra was made in 2001.
The husband of the Dutch Artist, wrote on Facebook that his wife said that Cacnio copied her work.
Their observations included that both had long hanging hair, falling-back head, outstretched arms and body.
Cacnio on the other hand, defended himself saying everything has just been a coincidence.
Did Cacnio commit plagiarism?
