Jan. 19 (UPI) -- The Museum of London has obtained an infamous balloon depicting outgoing U.S. President Donald Trump as a diaper-wearing baby for a protest-themed collection.
The 20-foot-tall "Trump Baby" balloon, created by British artist Matthew Bonner, made headlines worldwide when it was flown over London during Trump's first visit to the city as the U.S. president in 2018.
The balloon was flown multiple times during subsequent Trump visits to Britain and toured the world before being acquired by the Museum of London.
The museum said the balloon will be displayed alongside other items related to public protests in London.
"By collecting the baby blimp we can mark the wave of feeling that washed over the city that day and capture a particular moment of resistance -- a feeling still relevant today as we live through these exceptionally challenging times -- that ultimately shows Londoners banding together in the face of extreme adversity," museum director Sharon Ament said.
The "Trump Baby" team applauded the balloon's new home.
"We hope the baby's place in the museum will stand as a reminder of when London stood against Trump -- but will prompt those who see it to examine how they can continue the fight against the politics of hate," the team said.
