Record Type: concept
figurines (<sculpture by subject type>, sculpture (visual works), ... Visual and Verbal Communication (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Three-dimensional works that represent humans, animals, or mythical beasts at less than half life-size. While the term may be used interchangeably with "statuette" in certain situations, it differs in that a statuette is always free-standing while a figurine may be part of a larger work, such as a decorative detail on a candelabra or mirror.

Dutch ..... Sculpturen die mensen of dieren voorstellen die niet groter zijn dan de helft van de ware grootte. 
German ..... Dreidimensionales Werk, das Menschen, Tiere oder mythologische Wesen in weniger als halber Lebensgröße darstellt. Der Begriff kann in bestimmten Situationen mit “Statuette” austauschbar sein, unterscheidet sich aber darin, dass eine Statuette immer freistehend ist, während Figurinen auch Teil eines größeren Werks, wie ein dekoratives Detail an einem Kerzenleuchter oder Spiegel, sein können. 
Spanish ..... Esculturas que representan humanos o animales y que presentan la mitad o menos del tamaño natural.
