An amazing sight was deployed for the people going on Rabin square in tel Aviv on Tuesday morning. The statue of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was erected in the square without official permission.
Gold plated statue, called by its Creator "King Bibi" more than 4 meters tall was wrapped in red rope around the body to enhance the effect. The man who created the statue - Israeli sculptor Itay Salat.
He told Israeli television that put it on the area at night, because I wanted people to think about freedom of speech.
Art Salaita is provocative. However, the municipal Council did not write him a ticket, but decided to dismantle the statue.
Culture Minister Miri Regev, member of Netanyahu's Likud party, was not impressed. The press Secretary reported that Regev described the statue as "the Golden calf the motive of hatred" to the Prime Minister. Speaking to Israel radio, opposition leader Isaac Herzog called it "a legitimate protest."
For a short time the statue has become a minor tourist attraction until the inevitable happened. After a while the sculptor took shape.
