A statue of US First Lady Melania Trump was unveiled on the outskirts of her Slovenian hometown Sevnica on Friday.
The life-size statue was the brainchild of 39-year-old American conceptual artist Brad Downey, who hired a local chainsaw artisan, Ales Zupevc, to carve the likeness out of a tree trunk.
The sculpture was carved into a tree trunk and depicts the First Lady dressed in a blue coat and... Еще raising her left hand as though she were waving, recalling a pose she struck at her husband's 2017 inauguration. It stands tall above the Sava river in Rozno, downstream from Sevnica.
The area has become a tourist attraction ever since US President Donald Trump was elected in 2016, with people keen to learn more about Melania's early years.
