A monument celebrating First Lady Melania Trump has been built in the southern European country of Slovenia, in which the First Lady was born before moving to the United States and becoming a naturalized citizen.

The statue depicts the First Lady in the outfit she wore for President Trump’s historic presidential inauguration on January 20th, 2017.

The statue is located in rural fields outside of the town of Sevnica, Melania Trump’s hometown.

Mrs. Trump was born to a humble family in a nearby town in 1970, going on to become a world-famous model before marrying real estate tycoon and world-famous television personality Donald Trump.

Conceptual artist Ales ‘Maxi’ Zupevc, who created the statue, claims the monument is the first of its kind in commemorating the First Lady.

Slovenia is a small nation of just more than two million people, having approximately the population of a smaller US state such as New Mexico.

As such, Mrs. Trump is a source of pride for the Slovenian people, holding the informal title of the world’s most famous Slovene.

Melania became a naturalized U.S citizen in 2006, a year after she married Donald Trump in a ceremony at Bethesda-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Florida.

In addition to celebrating a famous resident, Zupevc’s statue will stand as a sign of friendship between the American and Slovenian people.
