NOTES 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.
