Of course you are right James, how stupid of me.


Probably I was thinking of Michelangelo's famous David statue.

Anyway here is a "real" statue stamp, the Youth of Marathon
The bronze statue made between 325 - 300 BC possible
represents the god Hermes.

As well...










Technically, I think this one is called a relief, but still a sculpture.




And this lady represents Commerce. But I think she's supposed to be a statue.

A statue is a sculpture in the round representing a person or persons, an animal, or an event, normally full-length, as opposed to a bust, and at least close to life-size, or larger. Its primary concern is representational.

I had to look up the defination.

Jón Ţorkelsson [Thorkillius] (1697-1759) was the principal of the cathedral school at Skálhol in Kjalarnes; he has been called the father of primary education in Iceland. Here are images of a pair of stamps depicting Jón Thorkelsson teaching young children, after a statue by Icelandic sculptor Ríkarđur Jónsson (1888-1972) which was erected in Thorkelsson's hometown, Innri-Njarđvík, in 1965, designed and engraved by Thomas De La Rue & Co., London, and issued by Iceland on May 5, 1959 to mark the 200th anniversary of Thorkelsson's death, Scott Nos. 317 & 318, Facit Nos. 365 & 366.

Les Gavroches is a bronze statue (1904) by Maltese sculptor Antonio Sciortino (1879-1947) which depicts three poor street urchins living in Paris in the time of the French Revolution of 1848, inspired by the Victor Hugo novel Les Miserables. Here is an image of a stamp depicting Les Gavroches, engraved and printed by Bradbury, Wilkinson & Co., and issued for use in Malta on January 23, 1956, Scott No. 257, SG No. 277, plus a photo of the statue in the Barakka Garden, Valletta. To my eye, the central figure doesn't look quite as happy on the stamp as he does in the original work of art.
