The statues, which depicts Matilda Wormwood looking defiant with hands on hips in the face of the US president, have been installed to mark the 30th anniversary of the publication of the children’s book Matilda.
The idea for the statues came from a public survey by The Roald Dahl Story Company which sought to find out what people think Matilda would be doing if she was alive today and in her thirties – with 42% of people agreeing that President Trump was the person she would be standing up to.
In the novel, Matilda famously stands up to her cruel headmistress Miss Trunchbull.
Bernie Hall, from The Roald Dahl Story Company, said: “Matilda demonstrates that it’s possible for anyone, no matter how small and powerless they feel, to defeat the Trunchbulls in their own lives – a message that feels more relevant today than it did 30-years-ago.”
The statues stand in Great Missenden in Buckinghamshire, the town where the late author lived for 36 years.
