A statue is a sculpture depicting a precise entity, usually a person, event, animal or object. Its prime concern is representational. A small statue is called statuette. A statue of just a head and shoulders is a bust not to be perplexed with the anatomical part of the female body referring to the chest or the part of a dress. Many statues are built on payment to honor a historical event, or the life of an powerful person. Many statues are intended as public art, exhibited outdoors or in public buildings for the edification of passers-by, with a larger size than normal words could ever have for the common man.
