An unusual painting hanging in California lawmaker J Luis Correa’s office has drawn the ire of conservative groups because it shows the Statue of Liberty wearing a hijab – the traditional Muslim headscarf.

While Democrat Correa insisted that the painting will stay, activists from conservative groups have launched protests demanding its immediate removal.

The painting was made by a female high school student as part of the annual Congressional Art Competition. Every year, hundreds of high school students submit their artworks for the competition, of which the winning ones are featured at the US Capitol. This contentious painting was reportedly a finalist in the competition.

The painting also shows the hijab-wearing Statue of Liberty holding her torch in the left hand instead of in the right hand as in the original statue.
