A reminder that it would be better to have more statues, not fewer. Artists need the work. Plus, an awareness of what we used to build statues and monuments to along the historical route to wonderful and perfect us versus what we want to honor now is a cultural lesson in itself.
That would be assuming that any sort of cultural or historical lesson is desired, of course. Silly me. The destruction of all previous context in favor of what just feels right to people who live on social media now is a feature, not a bug.

A cousin by marriage has made his living for decades selling his sculptures. In recent years he has seen demand fall of for his sculptures- which for decades had a pretty good market. He and my cousin would agree with you.
