A California artist has created a sculpture and digital animation featuring Donald Trump spewing bull dung.
The artist, Andrew Kong Knight of Hayward, California, depicted the Republican frontrunner with his right hand extended upwards in a Nazi salute, his armband-adorned left arm grasping a pile of money, and bull dung pouring out of his mouth and overflowing a container shaped like the United States.
Knight also had the artwork turned into an animated GIF file, which he encourages viewers to share.
In a statement on his Facebook page, Knight wrote:
Dear friends, here’s an artwork that is one of the ugliest I’ve ever created. It’s a reaction to what I’ve seen and felt over the last few months. It was one of the toughest projects I’ve worked on since I had to stare in the face of hate and ignorance the whole time and also collect actual bullshit to use in this piece. Hope you enjoy it. Please feel free to share.
Much peace and love to you.
In a separate statement to San Francisco Bay Area ABC News affiliate KGO, Knight said that he created the artwork to “stand against the blatant prejudice, racism, sexism and lies that is [sic] being spread by the current front runner [sic] of the Republican Party.”
Knight said he collected the bull dung from hills near his home. He told KGO that he had suffered while creating the work because “I had to stare in the face of hate and ignorance the whole time and also collect actual (expletive) to use in the piece.”
