(Newser) – Pretty soon, one lucky American will get to come home to naked Donald Trump every night. The San Francisco Chronicle reports one of the explicit Trump statues that made headlines when they popped up around the country last month will be auctioned off on Oct. 22. The statues created by an anarchist artist collective and dubbed "The Emperor Has No Balls" were erected in Los Angeles, Cleveland, Seattle, New York, and San Francisco, according to Reuters. But the Los Angeles statue was the only one not seized or destroyed by authorities. "The explicit statue quickly became a symbol of political protest art," CNBC quotes Julian's Auctions as stating.

Julian's Auctions expects the surviving Los Angeles statue to go for between $10,000 and $20,000 at auction. A portion of those proceeds will go to the National Immigration Forum. The immigrants rights organization will use the money to "advocate for the value of immigrants and immigration to the nation," LA Weekly reports. Hundreds of other pieces of art will be auctioned off alongside naked Donald Trump, including the famous "Hope" portrait of President Obama and a portrait of Hillary Clinton in a tuxedo called "Hillary Clinton Cojones."
