Authenticity[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, if the statue has bat wings instead of feathery wings, then it is a forgery.

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the forged statue has an imperfect appearance, as if it were a cheap plaster duplicate. If the statue's wings are uneven sizes and its left leg is in front, it is fake; the real statue has parallel wings and its right leg in front.
