Melania Trump: New metal statue unveiled in Slovenia

16 September 2020

A new bronze statue to US First Lady Melania Trump has been unveiled near her hometown in Slovenia.

It replaces a wooden sculpture erected last year, which was set alight shortly afterwards by unknown arsonists.

Some described the original as a "disgrace" or a "Smurfette", saying it did not look like Mrs Trump.

The new statue features a plaque dedicating the sculpture to "the eternal memory of a monument to Melania which stood at this location".

Mrs Trump was born in Novo Mesto in 1970 but grew up in the town of Sevnica, when Slovenia was part of the Communist nation of Yugoslavia.

However, I like how the this particular sculptor captured her essence.
