Politico's Playbook reported Wednesday that the $100,000 statue's artist Tommy Zegan left out that the hulking gold giant was manufactured at the Shijiazhuang D & Z Sculpture Co. factory in China.
Zegan is based in Mexico and originally told Politico that he hand-crafted the painted fiberglass statue in Rosarito, Mexico, where he lives as an American expat.
