A new sculpture of US First Lady Melania Trump was unveiled in her home country Slovenia triggering mixed reviews.
The sculpture was carved in wood and modelled to be unveiled at the first lady’s hometown, Sevnica, showing her in a blue dress like the one she wore at Donald Trump's presidential inauguration.
It was cut from the trunk of a linden tree by the US artist Brad Downey.
While many criticized the sculpture saying it does not look alike her, others saw it as a chance to honor her.
