#HelpMeMommy. Terrifying life-size statues of a naked (and orange! so, so orange!) Donald Trump have mysteriously been popping up around the country. HuffPo is reporting that they are the work the anonymous anarchist street art collective Indecline – who were responsible putting the names of black victims of police brutality on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The plaque at the base of the statue reads “The Emperor Has No Balls” – and if you dare to look at the gag-inducing micro-penis nestled in thatch of “macaroni pubes,” you will see the name is quite apt. Pardon me while I hurl.
According to The Washington Post, a Las Vegas–based artist named Ginger, who is experienced in constructing monsters for haunted houses, was commissioned by Indecline to create the work. “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.” Ginger used 300 pounds of clay and silicone to create Trump’s likeness, complete with what he described as a “constipated look.”
We reached out to Indecline to learn about their motivation behind the project ― specifically, the lack of testicles in their artistic interpretation. “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.”
