A political party in Iraq's Kurdistan region called the Donkeys' Party has unveiled a statue of its four-legged namesake in dress attire. The bronze statue shows the head and shoulders of a donkey dressed in a suit, collared shirt and tie.More
Five feet high and three feet wide, it took Kurdish sculptor Zerak Mira seven months to create and cost £2,500. It is located on Nali Street, Sulaimaniyah, which is named for a famous Kurdish poet who wrote a well-known poem about donkeys.
The statue was unveiled at a ceremony attended by a number of Kurdish artists and intellectuals.
