Description:
These are statues of individuals of historical importance who are immortalized with a statue of their likeness.
Expanded Description:

An historical statue Waymark must be a permanent, free-standing statue of a named historical character. If the historical figure is still alive, please submit it to the Living Statues category. The statue may stand alone, or be a component of a larger sculptural composition. It may be situated in a public place or in a museum (adhere to local rules for photographing objects in museums).

** Update: September 8, 2011 **

We are no longer accepting religious statues found on church grounds or other such places of saints, Jesus, Mary or other religious icons. If you have a statue found at such a place and you can make a strong case as to why it should be included here, we will vote on it. Exceptions can always be made. Those statues found on church property can be submitted to the Statues of Religious Figures.

An exception to this exclusionary rule would be statues of Popes. Send 'em here!
