Naked Donald Trump Statues Popping Up All Over US

Naked statues of Donald Trump have been popping up in public places all over the US.

The Washington Post reports the statues have so far appeared in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and Cleveland.

PIX11 reports the figure that appeared in Manhattan was complete with realistic peach-colored skin, a protruding stomach, Trump's signature coif and detailed genitalia. A plaque at the foot of the statue read, "The emperor has no balls."

So who erected the bold life-size works?

They were unveiled by the anarchist artist collective INDECLINE, according to The Washington Post.

"Like it or not, Trump is a larger-than-life figure in world culture at the moment,” an INDECLINE spokesman told The Post. “Looking back in history, that’s how those figures were memorialized and idolized in their time — with statues.”

The artwork, which is meant to portray the GOP nominee in a fairly unflattering light, showcased him naked in order to present him in the most humiliating way, according to The Post.

It was created by a Las-Vegas based artist who goes by the name "Ginger." He told The Post he spent up to 25 hours each week since April working on the 80-pound statues, and googled terms such as "saggy old man butt" during the creative process.

On Monday a video was posted to YouTube showing how the statue was made.

It’s not the first time the Republican presidential nominee has been depicted in the buff. Earlier this year, artist Illma Gore created a sketch of Trump naked, his right leg hoisted on an unseen ledge as he leans toward the viewer, mouth agape.
