‘Shattered glass’ portrait of Kamala Harris unveiled in DC

A portrait of Kamala Harris made from what Fox News described as “shattered glass” and weighing in at more than 300 pounds was unveiled on Thursday at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. to commemorate her accomplishment of becoming the first woman vice president of the United States.

According to Fox News, the portrait was created by Swiss artist Simon Berger and modeled after a photo of Harris.

It was reportedly created in Switzerland and then shipped to the U.S. for display.

A “visual emblem of this moment”

Fox reports that the portrait was commissioned by the National Women’s History Museum and female executive networking organization Chief to symbolize Harris breaking the glass ceiling by serving as vice president.

“I think what makes it so moving to me is to see the tiny cracks, to see those fissures and everything they represent,” Chief co-founder Lindsay Kaplan told the Associated Press.

Artist Berger told the AP that he “hit the glass directly with the hammer, so that cracks and impacts occur.”

“Hard hits create abstraction and I ‘paint’ with targeted fine hits,” Berger said.

National Women’s History Museum president and CEO Holly Hotchner told the AP that the image “will just be a wonderful visual emblem of this moment in time, and hopefully people will reflect a little bit on all the barriers that have been broken by her election.”

“I will not be the last”

The 6-foot-by-6-foot, 350-pound portrait will be on display until Saturday, and will then go to New York before being displayed elsewhere, Fox News reported.

According to Fox, Harris said in a victory speech following November’s election, “While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last.”

The former California senator got the job after then-candidate Joe Biden promised he’d choose a woman as his running mate and later, faced pressure to choose a Black woman for the role of VP, according to NPR. This time around, it looks like identity politics won out — and now, Biden, dubbed by many as a centrist, has one of the country’s most liberal lawmakers at his side. Let the infighting begin.

  1. She did not even get her own party’s vote in the primary — 4 or 7% and she slept her way up with Willie Brown. What an example for young girls to emulate.

    1. I agree but the media will not print or speak the truth about Kamala Harris. She is a disgrace…and ten or twenty years from now the Media will hopefully print the truth about this disgusting woman. Shehurt California while being Attorney General and senator, she did NOTHING GOOD. Sadly she will continue to destroy the entire country, like she ignored the problems here in California…and made it a homeless state.

  2. A.N.T.I.F.A. & B.L.M. will destroy it, since they have been betrayed by the Democrat Deep State & George Soros, because they have not received their RIOT PAY…

  4. She is such a bad example for girls and women. There is nothing about her that one can make a positive remark. She is sleazy. She could only be used as an example of what not to be. Look at this picture but the real story is very sleazy. UGH!!!!!

  5. I can’t believe Ms Harris is being held up as a role model for young girls. She slept her way to get where she is. She is trash and looks the part. There are so many outstanding women who achieved great things on their own. These are the ones to be held in high regard.

  6. The most ugliest thing I have ever seen in my entire life. I pray the American taxpayer didn’t foot the bill for it. Besides blm and antifa nutjobs will destroy it for its ugliness if fir nothing else.

  7. That is as terror picture just like the one Obama’s wife had made and on display. NASTY and UGLEY as a pile of sh———-t.

  8. Commie Harris is a narcissist tramp that slept her way to the top – she never earned a thing on her own merit. She doesn’t belong in politics…she should be working the streets – it is a job she apparently did well.

  9. she claims she is non caucsian – on line a recent fam pic, did not show any traits of her, pertaiing to that culture.

  10. I 100% Agree with All Previous Comments

    All the statues they tore down of our History in this country and this is what they want to stand? Shows how screwed up our country has gotten. Started with Barack Hussein Obama who is still destroying us

  11. Outrageous that she could become our President. No one voted for her. Not even in her own party. She could never handle the office of the President.
