That's a tough call because it is a beautiful piece of art but also was created for a certain purpose in 1915 that was anything but artistic. Would an artistic statue of Pontius Pilot be controversial/acceptable in the Vatican or Jerusalem?
Hopefully there is a way to move past the negative connotations and accept this as a stunning art piece like the carved stone city of Petra in Jordan. Alas, maybe when we realize no two people are exactly the same and hate is a distant memory.
The civil war and the publicly accepted reason for it definitely makes this an emotional issue for most.
The coinage on the other hand can be enjoyed individually, online, or in museums for its artistic beauty by those that wish, so I don't see that going anywhere.

Of course, the coins will be next but that will not work out.

When I worked in Ga. during the recession in '09 for three months I drove past the area about three times and should have taken the time to stop, because it really is amazing how the stone can be transformed into that work of art.
