No - it's not idol worship...

In its left hand, the large seated figure holds a gilt bronze sphere emanating rays to symbolize God. In its right hand, is a family group symbolizing all human relationships.

The sculpture was not actually named. Nevertheless, it bears an inscription from 2 Corinthians (3:17) on the wall behind it:

"NOW THE LORD IS THAT SPIRIT
AND WHERE THE SPIRIT OF THE
LORD IS, THERE IS LIBERTY."
II CORINTHIANS 3:17
