First Lady Melania Trump honored by her home nation with statue

First Lady Melania Trump has her first-ever statue and... it's interesting.

Made of wood and waving hello, the abstract sculpture was unveiled in her home country of Slovenia.

It was once a tree, and crafted using a chainsaw.

At the unveiling, one attendee said if the monument was meant to be a parody, then the artist had been successful.

The U.S. artist who dreamed up the idea says it turned out "absolutely beautiful."
