BUCKLEY

This image captures what has been referred to as a "living statue," that is, real people (who are in this case covered in gold.) As Washingtonian Magazine reported, "On a Friday morning in July, (the above) appeared in DC’s Freedom Plaza, a few thousand feet from the site where police tear-gassed peaceful protesters so Trump could have a photo op in front of St. John's Church this past June...With a person playing Trump holding a Bible while an individual in heavy military gear held a baton over a prone Black Lives Matter protester." Credited to the Trump Statue Initiative led by well-known commercial and documentary director Bryan Buckley.
