Statues and sculptures have existed for a long time and perform many different roles. Some people portray them as a way of commemoration, while others show sculptures as a way of worship. Some people find comfort and healing in their form. Whatever the reason, statues have and continue to play a big role in the lives of people around the world.
Symbolism Sculptures have a symbolic meaning. For example, the Statue of Liberty represents / acts as a symbol of freedom and independence for Americans. For others, pig statues and pig figurines (especially gold ones) symbolize the pursuit of wealth and the pursuit of economic benefits and well-being. These representations can and do have many different symbolic meanings.
Worship We read in the Bible and other historical documents that replicas of people and symbols were and are used as a form of worship. All over the world there are many religions that use statues in their religious cults. For example, Buddhists use the Buddha to help them remember that everything comes from the Buddha, and by worshiping the Buddha, they can achieve and get the things they really want. Religious statues are becoming more and more common.
Memory Often sculptures are placed on monuments and tombstones in memory of a person who has passed away. One of the most common statues used for remembrance (and often for worship) is the statue of Jesus Christ. Christians seek to display statues of Jesus Christ in temples and in their homes. It serves as a constant reminder of what Jesus Christ did for them and of the love He has for them.
Healing statues are often given to people who are ill or have serious illnesses. Statues can bring peace and comfort as well as healing to those who are ill. Religious statues are often given to those who are ill. Many people believe and gain strength and healing from statues (both religious and non-religious statues).
Statues are a great asset that can be added to any home or building. Some of the most popular statues displayed in homes and public buildings are: Buddha, Virgin Mary, Christ, Batleyka and Willow. It doesn’t matter where you go. Statues are everywhere and part of everyday life.
