The sculpture appeared in Tel Aviv’s Habima Square on Wednesday morning, Israeli media reported. The statue, placed on a metallic-looking pedestal, portrays Netanyahu naked as he takes a leak.
The artist remains a mystery, but apparently set up a table nearby with snacks to draw the attention of passersby and monitor their reactions.
The statue was eventually hauled away by municipal workers, with police officers interrogating bystanders about whether they had any information about who had been responsible for the unauthorized work. Photographs show policemen placing barriers around the sculpture before its removal.
