Artist’s statue of Netanyahu causes a stir outside Tel Aviv city hall

A mock, gold-plaited statue portraying Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the likeness of monuments erected by despotic leaders caused a commotion after it was placed in front of the Tel Aviv Municipality in the city’s central Rabin Square on Tuesday.

The four-meter (13-foot) tall structure made by local artist Itay Zaliet, 37, was constructed from cardboard and polymer clay and was coated with a glossy, golden covering. The figure resembling Netanyahu was placed atop a white pedestal in a move meant to criticize the premier.
