A wooden statue of Melania Trump near near hometown in Slovenia was set on fire.
Brad Downey, the artist who commissioned the statue, told Reuters that it was set on fire on July 4.
He had it removed once he found out about the damage.
The statue, which was carved with a chainsaw, is known for its loose depiction of the US first lady.
Downey said he wanted it to start conversations about US politics and immigration, given Melania's status as an immigrant.
Police are investigating, but so far there is little to suggest who may be responsible.
