A statue is a sculpture made from a lasting material, representing one or more people or animals, normally full-length, and at least close to life-size, or larger. Most statues are constructed to commemorate a historical event, or the life of an influential person, or as the centerpiece of a shrine of worship. Statues are often considered public art and are often found exhibited outdoors or in other public locations.
