Three of the values (Mi #s 3345-7) from the DDR's last definitive series, "Buildings and Monuments" (1990), depict statues as a part of the famous monuments. The 30 pf stamp, showing The Goethe and Schiller statue by Ernst Rietschel (1804-61) can be seen on another stamp on page 22 of this thread. Likewise, The Quadriga, atop the Brandenburg Gate, can be seen on another stamp on page 23 of this thread.

The 60 pf value, shown here, depicts the Kyffhaeuser Monument near Bad Frankenhausen in Thuringia. It was dedicated to kings Frederick I (Frederick Barbarossa) and William I, the first kaiser of the modern, unified Germany. The monument was completed in 1896, and it contains statues of each of the kings. The bronze William I equestrian statue by Emil Hundrieser (1846-1911) can be plainly seen on the stamp. The size of the statue can be estimated by comparison to the two people in the lower left corner of the photo. The Frederick I sandstone statue by Nikolaus Geiger (1849-97) sits in the alcove beneath William I, and is not visible on the stamp.

This May 15, 1985, 1.50 (+ 8.50 mk) semi-postal stamp (Facit #961) of Finland was issued in conjunction with the NORDIA Stamp Exhibition held in Helsinki on May 15-19, 1985. The 8.50 markkas represents the entrance fee to the stamp show; the stamps were only sold at the show, with attendees receiving the stamp with receipt/ticket.

The stamp depicts the Havis Amanda "Mermaid" statue and fountain in the Market Square of Helsinki. An earlier posting on this thread (p. 28) shows a close-up photo of the statue.

Here is another stamp from Berlin's Berlin Buildings II series. The 40 pf value (Mi #149) depicts a view of Charlottenburg Palace and the left side of its gate with the statue of a Greek warrior holding a sword and a shield.

The second pic/photo shows that the designers took some liberties with their stamp image. The bronze equestrian statue of Friedrich Wilhelm I is missing, as is the right side of the gate with the second warrior statue. This gives a clearer, but unreal picture of the palace.

On January 12, 1995 Germany issued this 80 pf stamp (Mi #1772) to commemorate the 1000th anniversary of the city of Gera. Stamp depicts various churches and buildings of Gera, and the "Simsonbrunnen" (Samson Fountain).

From wikipedia, "The Simsonbrunnen is a fountain in the middle of the Gera market. The fountain figure represents the biblical lion-slayer Samson (or, Simson). It was built in 1685 by the sculptor Caspar Junghans the elder."

After it was badly damaged by a terrible storm in 1930, the statue was replaced and re-erected in 1932. It was replaced again in 1979.

Here is Germany's September 12, 1996, 100 (pf) stamp (Mi #1881) publicizing the old city/city center of Bamberg's selection as an UNESCO "World Heritage Site". The gothic statue of St. Cunigunde as Holy Roman Empress is shown on the right side of the stamp.

From wikipedia, "Cunigunde of Luxembourg (975-1040) was Empress of the Holy Roman Empire by marriage to Holy Roman Emperor Saint Henry II. She served as interim Regent after the death of her spouse in 1024."

The Federal Republic of Germany has issued at least two different stamps depicting the bronze equestrian statue of Johann Wilhelm II (erected 1711) in Duesseldorf. Johann Wilhelm II (1658-1716), Elector Palantine, of the Wittelsbach dynasty, was a prolific collector of the paintings of Peter Paul Rubens. His collection is now housed at the Alte Pinakothek (Museum) in Munich. The bronze statue in Duesseldorf was designed by Gabriel de Grupello (1644-1730) a Dutch/Flemish sculptor.

The first stamp (Mi #423) was issued on October 24, 1964. It is one of twelve designs from the BRD's 1964-5 State Capitals series. The artwork is a stylized, but it is an effective representation of the statue.



The second stamp (Mi #1369) was issued on May 5, 1988. It shows some historic buildings of the city, as well as the equestrian statue.

Hello.
The Stamp Fair is held annually in the Higher Square of Madrid, where every Sunday markets for stamps, coins and other collectibles are held under the arcades. In the center (almost) the equestrian statue (bronze) of King Felipe III is located.
On 04-19-2018 this block was issued commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Fair.
The face value of the stamp is $ 6.03 and almost all emissions are high values, which has made many Spaniards flee from collecting stamps of Spain.
Regards.
