statue

Sculpture in the round, usually but not always depicting humans, animals, mythical beings, or small figure groups. Statues are relatively large in scale, being life-size, larger than life-size, or only slightly smaller than life-size. For small-scale representations of humans, animals, or mythical beings, use figurines, statuettes, or another appropriate term. For depictions of humans, animals, or mythcial beings in media other than sculpture, use figures (representations).
