An independent investigation has uncovered documents revealing a 12-foot tall bronzed Shinzo Abe statue was purchased by the school chain Moritomo Gakuen for the bargain basement price of around 10 per cent of the original value.
“The sculpture’s value primarily stems from the recent surge in the price of scrap bronze metal,” according to investigation reports.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe says he had nothing to do with the forging of the “phenomenally crafted masterpiece”.
The Prime Minister’s wife Akie Abe has reportedly said she originally commissioned the sculpturing of the Bronzed Abe, but in a “private capacity” with the intention of it forming the “main water feature in their personal estate gardens”.
Moritomo Gakuen has made an official statement declaring they received a discount price as it was mounted on a rubbish base with an extremely right leaning plaque.
