On Thursday, a naked Donald Trump statue, complete with protruding belly and visible yellow hair sparked laughter and amusement before it was knocked down by park wardens.
The artwork, which clearly shows his “personal bits,” was unveiled in Union Square, looking out across a busy street with a text curved on it that says “The Emperor Has No Balls.”
Four other life-size Donald Trump sculpture with hands folded over swollen belly also appeared in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Ohio the same day, according to social media posts.
The inventions are the idea of an activist collective known as INDECLINE, which has spoken out against Trump before.
However, New York’s department of parks and recreation seems not happy with the sculpture and so had the one placed in their park ripped from its base before using shovels to smash its feet and foam base to smithereens, and pry its metal platform from the ground.
In a statement, the creator of the sculpture said the reason is to ensure Trump “is never installed in the most powerful political and military position in the world.”
However, NYC Parks told AFP in an email that the statues which were created by an artist in Cleveland are of a stern-faced Trump with his hands folded over a bulging belly with some parts of male genitalia visible while others seemingly are missing.
INDECLINE said in its statement:
“It is through these sculptures that we leave behind the physical and metaphorical embodiment of the ghastly soul of one of America’s most infamous and reviled politicians.”
Trump’s campaign refused to say anything concerning the status.
Before it was brought down, passers-by had already made stops to snap photographs, selfies and laugh at the depiction of the New York billionaire.
The inventor said the other statues are still intact.
