Size does matter

Let's face it.Belgium is a boring little country.And Brussels is a boring city.Filled with boring tourists. In the center of Brussels there is a horrible little statue.A small pissing boy. Where the tourists gather. What would happen if we changed the horrible little statue for something beautiful? Like a statue of Petro. Would the tourists even notice? Petro decided to see what's going to happen if he makes a golden statue of himself  and simply replaces the old and small pissing boy.
