I go with A.
'like his mother's' face.

The next close one is B, but i think it is wrong, it is long and ackward.

Definitely B here...

it's b/w A and B, but A doesn't clearly refer to face... could be statue like his mother's statue...

Can't the same be true for B?

after that (face or statue) of her mother......

B is correct because of idiom "modelled after"

I'm late but I also pick B.

Both A & B appear to be correct, but I am guessing that the difference between the two is that B has the correct idiom. Would anyone else agree?

Also between A nad B for me, but I would go for (A). More compact and conscice. I think it is clear they are talking about the face...

I'm going with B. I don't think it can be A, C or D because it's not correct to use 'like' in this situation. Modeled...after is the correct usage I believe.

D is confusing and can't be correct.

Go with (A). Feel it is "model after X" and not "model after that of X".

'modeled after' is the correct idiom.
But none of the options is pleasing. :?

A is the trap answer here.

I`ll take (B) because of the correct use of the idiom model after~
