Trump in the Nude

By Sabrina Slagowitz

For the past year Donald Trump has been everywhere, but his appearance in Union Square, as a nude statue that is, was unlike any sighing of him before. The statue depicted a Trump that was very naked with a very serious expression, leaving details that are now embalmed into the minds of innocent New Yorkers: the nips, the veins, and his “macaroni” like pubes. Identical sculptures appeared in four other cities, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Cleveland, and Seattle. These works created by the subversive art group Indecline feature a plaque at Trump’s feat that reads: “the emperor has no balls.”  Indecline is the name of an unnamed anarchist street art collective whose others works include putting the name of black victims of police brutality on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. According to the Washington Post, Ginger, a Las Vegas based artist who constructs monsters for haunted houses, was hired by Indecline to create the statues. “When the guys approached me, it was all because of my monster-making abilities,” he said. “Trump is just yet another monster, so it was absolutely in my wheelhouse to be able to create these monstrosities.” The entire creation process is shown through video on Indecline’s website. The statue required 300 pounds of clay and silicon to produce Trump and his “constipated look.” The Huffington Post reached out to Indecline to learn the motive behind this statue, specifically the lack of balls on the statue. “We decided to depict Trump without his balls because we refuse to acknowledge that he is a man,” Indecline responded. “He is a small arrogant child and thus, has nothing in the way of testicles.” The sculpture has been removed, but not before people had the chance to laugh at “the emperor (with) no balls.”
