A bronze statue with great height representing US First Lady Melania Trump has been displayed in her hometown Slovenia to replace a wooden one that was set on fire in July by black lives matter rioters.
The new sculpture is a copy of the original one that was first brought the her home country by the US artist Brad Downey and placed near Trump’s home town of Sevnica, in central Slovenia.
The original statue – carved by local folk artist Ales Zupevc – was torched by unknown arsonists on July 4 this year.
The height of the new Melania Trump statue has tongue-wagging of support and despair. It was carved in a linden tree and pained in light blue to resemble Trump’s outfit at her husband’s swearing-in ceremony.
The sculpture bares no obvious resemblance to the US first lady.
