A Great Law Giver in History

Muhammad, peace be upon him - In US Supreme Court Building, Washington, D.C.

A young Muslim says this about "Discovering Muhammad in US Supreme Court Building" after his visit to Washington, DC (USA):

..one of the most important building in US i.e. Supreme Court building. It is located in Washington, DC. Like any other governmental building in US, it is all painted white and it has Greek architecture style. It felt so great to be there. It felt like a dream since one year ago, I only studied it from text book in my American government class.

It was in the morning, and pretty cold, somewhere between 0 - 5 Celsius degree. I love the cold haha. I stood in a line with my group waiting for the door to open. Entering the building, like usual we needed to pass through a very tight security check. Then, the awesome part ... the museum ...

Like any other governmental building in Washington DC, there is a museum that is opened for public, and it is free !!!
I observed many photos, figures and else ...
Then, I found this scripture...

"What is that?" so I thought ... then I read on the title .. these are men who are considered to be male upholders in the world. And, there is "Muhammad" (peace be upon him) on top of a male figure dressed in Arabic style.
"Wow.. I never knew this before" so I said to my self.

The room's ceiling is very high. There are many ornaments on the upper ceiling including the scriptures of the law givers. They are Adolph A. Weinmann's work. He put 18 figures of man who are considered to be the world's law givers. . . Moses, Solomon, Hammurabi, Draco, Solon, Confucius, Octavian, King John, Napoleon, John Marshall and of course, Muhammad PBUH . .

. . my friend asked, "Why there is the scripture of Muhammad (peace be upon him).". .  the tour guide said, ". . the artist did this art work to respect the law givers on earth, Muhammad (peace be upon him) is considered to be among the most influential law givers on earth. Thus, he depicted his figure there."

He had no intention of mockery or so. His work was also solely based on pure imagination. The depicted figure bear no resemblance to Muhammad (peace be upon him). Once again, it should be emphasized that the depiction is to honor Muhammad PBUH as one the world's lawgivers.
Well, tell me your opinion about it?

ASALAM ALEKUM MY OPINION MUHAMMAD(SAW)PI CTURE SHOULD NOT BE THERE, BECAUSE ITS NOT LIKE IT WAS EXPLAINED . HE IS NOT LAWS GIVER, BUT GOD ALLAH(SWA)IS THE LAW GIVER. HE IS only rasool he didnt create any laws
