A naked statue of U.S President, Donald Trump, is set to be put on display at a Haunted Museum after a paranormal investigator bought it at an auction.
Celebrity auctioneer, Julien’s Auctions, announced on Wednesday that it sold the artwork – believed to be the last of the controversial statues not vandalised or destroyed – for $28,000 at its biannual auction in Los Angeles, reports AFP.
The infamous statue by a West Coast anarchist collective is one of a series depicting the 45 th president in the nude, but without testicles .
In August 2016, in the build – up to the election, the statues appeared in public spaces in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Seattle and Cleveland, garnering international attention.
The four other naked Trumps – titled “The Emperor Has No Balls ” were confiscated or destroyed.
The sole surviving copy was rescued by La Luz de Jesus Gallery on Hollywood Boulevard before it could be taken and melted down.
Buyer Zak Bagans – a paranormal investigator and American television personality – intends to put the fleshy Trump on show at his Haunted Museum in Las Vegas, according to a statement from Julien’s.
