Statues of Religious Figures
Managed By: Icon Here Religious Statues
Description:
This category is for statues of figures that have religious significance.
Expanded Description:
Significant religious people of all world religions have often been valued in world history for their contributions and achievements but not without an amount of controversy. Some important people in world history may not be considered important if it were not for their religious significance, and there is argument to whether some metaphysical figures even exist.

This category will include statues of mortal humans, both living and deceased, and metaphysical beings that are all important in their respective religions.

The statue must be representative of a specific figure that has religious significance and is a permanent, free-standing statue placed in a setting that will not allow visits to disturb worship.

If your religious figure statue goes missing in the real world, do not archive your waymark! Please just adjust the description to reflect that the statue is no longer there. Your waymark may be the only lasting documentation that it existed at all!
Instructions for Posting a Statues of Religious Figures Waymark:
Coordinates must be taken at the statue with a handheld GPS receiver.

Submit an image of the statue. More images are welcomed and encouraged. Adhere to any museum regulations regarding photography. Do not submit statues to this category that are in locations where visits can disturb worship.

Provide information in the Long Description about the religious significance of the statue figure. You must have information pertaining to the religious figure. From December 14, 2008 on, waymarks will not be approved without relevant information about the religious figure.

Information about the statue itself is appreciated but not required.

After naming the waymark the same name as the religious figure, add a dash and then location information that includes city, state/province/territory (if applicable), country.
For example:
St. Michael the Archangel – Chicago, IL (or Illinois), US
or
Athena – Rome, IT (or Italy)

We do not accept waymarks for statues that are provided for sale by a private seller or merchant because of their temporary placement.
Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
Take a picture of the statue. A waymarker and/or GPSr is not required to be in the image but it doesn't hurt.
