NEW YORK - A mysterious sculpture of a naked Hillary Clinton caused a commotion in Lower Manhattan on Tuesday morning.
The Democratic nominee was depicted with horse hooves and standing on what appeared to be printouts of emails. The statue also featured a Wall Street banker pressed against her left breast.
It stood outside the entrance to the Bowling Green subway station for a couple of hours without incident, but a dispute eventually broke out when a woman knocked it down, kicked it several times and sat on it.
Man: Why are you sitting on that?
Woman: Because I find this offensive!
Man: Freedom of speech!
A crowd formed. Some took pictures, while others took sides in the dispute.
“That's not good. That’s a total disrespect toward women," one woman said.
"I wouldn't be surprised to see a Donald Trump statue, but to see a Hillary one, I think is really interesting," said another.
Police officers responded to restore order.
NY1 spoke to Zachary Cedarbaum, who said he represents the artists who made the Clinton caricature.
Cedarbaum says the name of the statue is "The Empress Has No Shame."
He said some of the artists support Donald Trump for president, while others actually support Clinton.
"The idea is that there should be equality in any way, shape or form. Everybody has different opinions, and that we should be able to express them how we want without that kind of backlash. We're trying to fight for the right to have the government of the people by the people for the people. Instead of, of the banks, by the banks, for the banks," Cedarbaum said.
Cedarbaum says the artists removed the statue to repair it.
In August, a statue depicting a naked Donald Trump was erected in Union Square.
