SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) ? A statue of Donald Trump has popped up overnight in San Francisco?s Castro District, and it?s naked. 460x (43)    The life-size statue can be found on the corner of Castro and Market Streets and has attracted a large gathering of onlookers and photo-takers.    San Francisco isn?t the only city to find the unflattering statue on its streets Thursday morning.    Identical statues were also found in Los Angeles, New York, Seattle and Cleveland.    ?The Emperor Has No Balls? are the brainchild of an activist collective called INDECLINE, which has spoken out against Trump before.    In a statement, the collective said the hope is that Trump ?is never installed in the most powerful political and military position in the world.?

Story highlights

A nude statue of Trump appeared in New York City's Union Square

The group behind the statue installed nude Trump monuments in other cities around the country

(CNN) —  

The most surprising government agency to lampoon Donald Trump this week? The New York City Parks Department.

The department issued a short response after an arts group called Indecline hoisted a life-size, naked Trump statue in Union Square park Thursday.

“NYC Parks stands firmly against any unpermitted erection in city parks, no matter how small,” said Sam Biederman, a parks spokesman.

Indecline, described by The Guardian as an anarchist group, installed nude Trump statues in other cities around the country, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, Cleveland and Seattle, the paper reported.

A video on Indecline’s website shows the creators crafting the statue, using paintbrushes and watersprays to mold the clay body and carving “Ginger” into the footboard.

Other aggressive art from the group, according to its site, includes artwork along the US-Mexico border saying “Rape Trump” and what they claim to be the “largest illegal graffiti piece in the world” along an abandoned runway in California.
