Giant naked Trump statue sells for $22K at auction

Nothing says welcome like a giant naked Donald Trump statue in the foyer.

A naked statue in the likeness of the Republican presidential candidate sold at auction for $22,000 on Saturday, according to Julien’s Auction house in Los Angeles. 

In August, anonymous art collective INDECLINE placed naked Trump statues in several cities across the United States. While the statues were quickly taken down, they ignited a social media firestorm and pictures were shared widely.

Part of the proceeds from the sale of the statue, which is entitled “The Emperor Has no Balls,” will go to the advocacy group National Immigration Forum, according to the auction house.

The barely clad Trump was sold as part of a  “Street Art and Contemporary Art” auction, which included pieces by Banksy, RETNA, Warhol, and INDECLINE, which created the Trump masterpiece.
