China unveils Trump rooster

With his recent controversial comments, US President-elect Donald Trump may have ruffled feathers in Beijing. However, he has ended up as artwork, with a feathery theme.

With the Year of the Rooster approaching, a Trump-inspired sculpture is on display at a shopping centre in Taiyuan, Shanxi province.

According to the BBC, the designer told Chinese media he was inspired by both his iconic hairstyle and hand gestures.

The Lunar New Year falls on 28 January.

It is not the first time a resemblance has been spotted between the future leader of the free world and a bird in China.

A golden pheasant in a zoo in Hangzhou achieved brief internet fame in November after a visitor noticed that its swept-back blond hair and piercing blue eyes looked somewhat like Mr Trump's.
