A possible incendiary device that exploded outside the Texas Public Radio (TPR) offices in San Antonio on Monday is believed to have targeted a sculpture critical of China and communism, according to a report.

No one was hurt when the incendiary device blew up outside the offices, where the sculpture titled Miss Mao trying to balance herself on top of Lenin’s head stands, TPR reporter Paul Flahive tweeted.

A spokesperson for the San Antonio Fire Department confirmed to Fox News Digital that their Bureau of Arson was investigating a criminal mischief incident and no injuries were reported. Additional details could not be immediately provided.

The provocative stainless steel sculpture depicts Chairman Mao as a diminutive Miss Mao balancing on the head of Vladimir Lenin.

“While the statue is intended by artists Gao Zhen and Gao Qiang to be a critique of China and communism, it is unclear what prompted the attack,” Flahive tweeted.

Part of the statue was damaged under Lennin’s chin, the outlet reported. It was not clear what damaged the statue.

Flahive said police cordoned off the building while the investigation continued.

Police were investigating the vandalism of the sculpture.
