The former mayor of Flint, Mich., Don Williamson, recently set a bronze statue of himself outside his gated home surrounded by six bronze lions, reported Michigan Live.

Williamson says the statue itself was made 20 years ago and at one time sat in the building of a company he ran, The Colonel’s Inc., which burned down in 1993 in a suspected arson.

His wife imported the lions.

Williamson, who now lives in nearby Davison Township, resigned as mayor of Flint soon before his looming defeat in a recall election in 2009.

One neighbor called the bronze sculpture a joke, remarking, “Someone is going to do something to that statue.”
