LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – A life-sized nude statue of US Republican presidential contender Donald Trump is going up for auction, with profits from the sale going to an immigrant support group.
Julien’s Auctions said on Wednesday that the statue, called “The Emperor Has No Balls,” is expected to fetch $10,000 to $20,000 (P467,050 to P934,100) at the Oct 22 auction in Los Angeles.
The statue is one of a series that appeared unannounced in public spaces in New York and four other US cities earlier in August. The orange-tinted likeness showed Trump with a massive belly, small fingers and some missing genitals.
Most were confiscated or destroyed by local authorities and the Los Angeles statue is the only one remaining, Julien’s said.
The statues were created by an anonymous artists collective called INDECLINE. A portion of the auction profits will go to the National Immigration Forum, which campaigns for the rights of immigrants.
