New Melania statue installed in her native place in Slovenia
American First Lady Melania Trump's burnt wooden statue in her native place in Slovenia has been replaced with a bronze one. The arson is suspected to have been a part of an anti-Trump wave of violence at that time spreading to other countries. It is a paradox that US President Donald Trump, the author of the new American anti-immigration policy, is married to an immigrant. Social media described the statue as a scarecrow, trash, ashtray and worse. However, the little known, small Sevnica town has become a tourist attraction.

WASHINGTON, Sept 17: A new Melania statue in bronze has come up in her native place in Sevnica in Slovenia in the place of an earlier one made of wood which was burnt down by unknown arsonists on July 4 last, coinciding with the political violence that took place in the US, just a year after it was installed.

Sevnica is a small town in central Slovenia where the US First Lady was brought up. The new one was unveiled by artist Brad Downey on Tuesday.

The burned statue is currently on display at an exhibition in Kroper town. It was carved in a linden tree and painted in light blue to resemble her outfit at the Trump swearing-in ceremony, it was locally reported.

A plaque nearby reads, "dedicated to the eternal memory of a monument to Melania which stood at this location."

Meanwhile, the little known, small Sevnica town has become a tourist destination, selling Melania-themed mementos. Melania was born at a place called Novo Mesto in 1970 when Slovenia was a part of Communist Yugoslavia. Her name was Melanija Knavs.

It is a paradox that the author of American anti-immigration policy is married to an immigrant, it has been pointed out. Unfortunately, social media describes the Melania statue as a scarecrow, trash, ashtray and worse.
