Golden Erdogan statue erected in German city
A golden effigy of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was erected in a central German city as part of an art festival whose motto is “bad news.”
The larger-than-life statue in Wiesbaden depicts Erdogan with a raised right arm, according to The Associated Press.
The local Wiesbadener Kurier reported the statue was put up in the city’s downtown area Monday. City authorities had authorized the statue as part of the ongoing Wiesbaden Biennale art festival, but didn’t know Erdogan would be the person depicted, the newspaper reported.
