Weird statue of Melania Trump erected in Slovenia

Sevnica has become a tourist magnet ever since Donald Trump was elected U.S. president in 2016, and Ms Trump - a famous former resident - became the first lady.

The town of Sevnica has become an overnight tourist attraction following Trump's election into office in 2016, with some journalists looking for insight into the first lady.

In her hometown Sevnica, in Slovenia, a life-sized sculpture of First Lady Melania Trump has been revealed.

"She does not look as handsome as she normally is", said local resident Franc Stopar.

Besides the trademark light blue dress that Melania wore at her husband Donald Trump's presidential inauguration, and the posture of the sculpture with a waving hand, there is nothing else to resemble the looks of the first lady.

A life-size rough wooden sculpture of Melania Commissioned by Berlin-based American artist Brad Downey and carved with a chainsaw by local folk artist Ales Zupevc.

The statue is located on the outskirts of Sevnica, Trump's hometown, and carved out of a tree with a chainsaw. "I can understand why people might think that this falls short as a description of her physical appearance", Downey, 39, tells AFP of the work that some compare to a scarecrow.

Mr Zupevc was born in the same hospital in the same month as Mrs Trump and said the piece highlights the differences in their lives.

"You see this river that she would have seen as a child, you see the mountains", he told the news agency.

A local 24-year-old architecture student named Nika told AFP: "If the monument was meant to be a parody, then the artist has been successful".

Some residents described it as "a shame", a "Smurfette", saying "it would now not take into memoir the relaxation admire Melania". "Hats off to her", Sevnica resident Katarina Klenovsek said.
