BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:45 P.M.) – A four-meter statue of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was erected in Wiesbaden, on Monday, before being discovered vandalised on Tuesday morning.

The action, which some residents have described as a “provocation” belongs to the ‘Wiesbaden Biennale’ art festival, which currently takes place under the motto ‘Bad News.’

The statue was seen all morning guarded by police, to ensure that the statue didn’t cause trouble, according to local media.

“In my opinion, the idea is good within the framework of a thinking process, but an Erdogan statue based on his political features is not that good. But I think it makes people think and discuss, and that’s a good thing”, said one resident.

“I was very surprised this morning, I think it’s again so typical Biennial, I think it’s very great, because I like such provocations,” added another one.

The art festival did not want to comment on the action so far. The Wiesbaden Biennale runs from August 23 until September 9.

LOL, guarded by police during the day, not at night 😉
Erdogan has been “honoured” by many artists already, even by movie maker Peter Jackson who had CGI of him modelled for Gollum :

But look at his cartoons! He’s the most cartooned politician ever, superseding Adolf Hitler at it by far.
