Statue Standing Stoically in the mist. As I recall, this is no one in particular. It was built by road workers for the fun of it.

That one is startlingly realistic. I imagine seeing it directly it's more obvious that it's a stature.

Yup. Sorry I left it so long. It may already have been counted and will count again if I repost it on an appropriate thread. That kudu is just too realistic.

Herakles. Notice that his left arm is grotesquely over-sized.

Early, highly stylized statue that was a funerary offering, I believe called a Kouros. Later these became much more life-like.

This is called "young satyr" so maybe I should have saved it to stave off the dreaded "yellow." Maybe I'll X-post
