Melania Trump Receives Wooden Statue in Her Likeness in Slovenia-- and Locals Have Mixed Reviews





First Lady Melania Trump was honored in her home country of Slovenia with a statue in the city of Sevnica this week — and reviews of the statue are mixed.

The hand-carved wooden statue, which was unveiled on Friday in the First Lady’s hometown, shows Mrs. Trump adorned in the powder blue suit by Ralph Lauren Collection she wore at her husband Donald Trump’s 2017 inauguration, posing as she waves her hand.

The statue was commissioned by Berlin-based American artist Brad Downey and created by Ales “Maxi” Zupevc, a local Slovenian artist, who used a chainsaw to carve out the First Lady’s likeness.

Local residents gave their opinion on the Melania Trump statue, which ranged from admiration to disdain.
