Just when you thought this year's presidential election cycle shenanigans couldn't get an weirder, think again.
A life-size foam sculpture of Donald Trump naked will be sold at a live auction in Los Angeles, according to statement from Julien's Auctions Wednesday.
In October, the auction will feature the statute entitled "The Emperor Has No Balls" estimated to be worth between $10,000 and $20,000. A portion of the cash from the sale will go towards the National Immigration Forum, a immigrant advocacy organization, the group said.
The "Naked Trump" statue, created by members of the anarchist art collective INDECLINE, made its first public appearances in New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Cleveland and Los Angeles earlier this month. Onlookers stopped to take photos with the statue. The figure was removed immediately by officials in some locations.
"The explicit statue quickly became a symbol of political protest art and garnered international coverage when the gallery refused to hide or censor the statue," Julien's Actions said in the release, "choosing instead to display it prominently and in public view."
The auction will also include hundreds of other works of street and contemporary art and even an image of a Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, estimated to fetch between $10,000 and $15,000.
Trump's campaign did not immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment.
