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

 

Note: Three-dimensional, free-standing sculptures that are smaller than life-size and usually but not always figural. They are often reduced versions of larger works. While the term may be used interchangeably with "figurine" 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. Also, a statuette may represent objects other than a figure, while a figurine always represents a human, animal, or mythical figure.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Driedimensionale, vrijstaande beeldjes die kleiner zijn dan levensgroot en gewoonlijk, maar niet altijd, figuratief zijn. Vaak betreft het kleinere versies van grotere werken. In sommige gevallen kan men ook de term ���figurine' gebruiken, maar een statuette is altijd vrijstaand, terwijl een figurine onderdeel van een groter werk kan zijn, bijvoorbeeld een decoratief detail van een kandelaber of spiegel. Bovendien kan een statuette ook objecten voorstellen, terwijl een figurine altijd een menselijke, dierlijke of mythische figuur voorstelt.
