If you have secretly been wanting one of those naked Donald Trump statues that popped up in several U.S. cities last month, one is going up for sale.

The life-size statue is expected to go up for auction in Los Angeles in October with an estimated price tag of between $10,000 and $20,000.

Some of the money raised from the sale will go to the National Immigration Forum, which advocates for immigrant rights.

The Trump statue is not the only piece with a political angle. One piece shows the Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton wearing a tuxedo. It is expected to go for $15,000.

The statue was the creation of a group of anonymous artists calling themselves INDECLINE.

One of the statues placed in New York’s Union Square showed a naked Trump, hands crossing a large stomach. It was later removed by city officials. Other statues were seen in Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco and Cleveland. The Los Angeles version is the one for sale in the auction.
