Controversy over 300 years old statue...

These two photographs were taken in the Church of Our Lady in Dendermonde, Flanders (Belgium). They show the late 17th century pulpit, sculpted in wood by Mattheus van Beveren. The person subdued by the angels and having a Koran in his hands is generally thought to be Mohammed. The sculpture represents the triumph of Christianity over Islam... Brussels Journal
I don't know what to think about this. Destroying antique is not an option, complete ignore it?
A new controversy with a call to boycot Belgium?

Note; this statue is in fact a preach chair.
