"Obama's Head" will be sold to support Trump
The King of Marble decided to sell sculptured "heads" of influential politicians: US President Barack Obama, former President of Russia Dmitry Medvedev, former Secretary General of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China Hu Jintao, former Prime Minister of Italy Silvio Berlusconi, and former President of Venezuela Hugo Chavez. The funds obtained from selling the sculptures will be spend on supporting Donald Trump.
Nikolai Shmatko says that "Peace Express" sculptural composition was created back in 2009. He spent many days working on it. Most difficult part was to conceive the idea for the sculpture. In order to do so the author had to study the potential image objects carefully.
"Now it is time to dismantle the "Peace Express" composition and close this part of history eliminated by the lightning of "peacekeeper" Barack Obama. The "Peace Express" project is over," Nikolai Shmatko says.
The author would like to sell the sculptured head of Barack Obama first, Dmitry Medvedev will be the second, Hu Jintao – the third, and Silvio Berlusconi and Hugo Chavez will be the last ones. "However, there is an option of selling the entire collection of "heads" all together. It will depend on what the collector wants," Nikolai Shmatko adds.
