An artists’ collective took credit for exposing Donald Trump to unflattering scrutiny on August 18, saying it was responsible for life-sized nude statues of the Republican presidential candidate that turned up in cities across the U.S.
Copies of the orange-tinted likeness – featuring a massive belly, small fingers and missing some genital parts – were simultaneously unveiled in downtown Manhattan’s Union Square Park and public places in four other U.S. cities.
The collective titled the work “The Emperor Has No Balls.”
The activist collective, a group called INDECLINE that includes artists, musicians and filmmakers, claimed ownership of the work, saying in an email that the statues were also placed in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle and Cleveland. It said an artist called Ginger helped create the likeness.
