The United States President Donald Trump finally has a wooden statue in Slovenia, his First Lady’s home country.
His wooden statue, around 25-feet tall, has suddenly unwrapped on private land in the village of Sela pri Kamniku, which is about 20 miles northeast of the capital, Ljubljana.
However, the US President may not enjoy it.
The wooden statue portrays President Trump in a blue suit and red tie, standing with an angry look in his blue eyes, the high right arm is raised up in the air with a tighter fist.
President Trump’s wooden statue is designed with a square head and jaw, it looks like a Christmas Nutcracker. The statue appeared to be a work in progress, with an additional ladder still hanged against the head of the statue and scrap lumber piled nearby.
The wooden statue sits across the local fire station, next to a red fire hydrant at a small junction in a hilly village, where residents commute to work in the capital.
The person who has designed the wooden statue was interviewed on local media, but unknown by name, claim it was meant to show Donald Trump in the style of Superman, or the ‘Statue of Liberty’.
The artist who has aid in the construction of the statue by a group of local people said in the interview that it was “a provocation, because the world is full of populism.”
Igor Omerza is a former member of the Slovenian Parliament and an author, who wrote about Melania Trump, has spotted the statue last morning. He continued that it could be interpreted many ways – raised hands of Lady Liberty or Iron Fist of Adolf Hitler.
He further said that perhaps it is a sign of Slovenia “love-hate” relationship with the US President.
Mr. Omerza said, “Trump is always in the news,” adding that “I don’t believe the young people in this village who built this are in favor of him.”
Donald Trump is a polarizing figure in Slovenia. Many admire him, especially due to his wife has become a well-know exporter in Slovenia. The wooden statue is said to be eyeing in the direction of Sevnica, Mrs. Trump’s home village, which she has left as a young girl to pursue modeling.
