The sculptor, a Las Vegas based artist called Ginger, said the statues are as anatomically correct as possible.
He told the Post that he usually makes monsters for haunted houses and horror films. “I don’t expect these things to last more than 30 or 45 minutes,” Ginger said.
“But I would love to watch some irate 65-year-old Trump supporter try to take the thing down with his bare hands.” It is called “The Emperor Has No Balls”, a play on the short story “The Emperor Has No Clothes”.
Other statues were placed in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Cleveland and Seattle.
