A Donald Trump-inspired rooster statue that appeared outside a shopping mall in China's northern Shanxi province is getting a huge reception for the bird's likeness to the U.S. president-elect.

The mall's owner commissioned the rooster statue, which features Trump's hairstyle and hand gestures, and considers it the mall's mascot, CNN reported. The company plans to sell a series of smaller replicas and other products.

Other companies already have begun selling similar products, ranging in price from $57 to $1,739, CNN noted.

"I think the rooster is very cute and funny, the hairstyle and eyebrows look very much like Donald Trump. I'm sure it will attract a lot of customers," Wei Qing, whose Shenghe Yangtai Business is selling replica roosters, told CNN.

The statue, which reflects the coming Year of the Rooster on Chinese zodiac calendar, is reminiscent of a social media post by People's Daily China comparing Trump to a pheasant.

 

 

Trump was mocked in China, where he was called a "diplomatic rookie" after his phone call with the president of Taiwan, The Hill reported.

Some Twitter users seemed amused by the statue.
