CUE CARD IELTS :-speak about statue you have seen

Statues are artistic creations. There are different types of statues...statues of great people, statues of gods and goddesses....statues of animals...,statueψs of characters in stories, comics etc....statues are made of different materials- metals, wood, plaster of Paris, ivory, ceramic, mud etc. some statues are placed in public places to remember great people and honour their contributions to the society....some, on the other hand, are put at public places for their artistic excellence or to beautify places like parks and museums...another place where one can see statues are churches and temples or places of religious importance. We can even see statues on coins of many countries....In the olden days, statues represented positions. Like chiefs of certain tribes carried a stick with a particular statue on it ...or wore statues on their chains and so on...

But the one which comes to my mind when I think of statues is a statue of Mother Mary carrying little Jesus in her hands that are exhibited in front of my high school in Mundakkayam. Its a lovely piece of art made of cement and painted beautifully.... when I did my high school studies , me and my friends use to go there to do prayers- especially during the exam season.....and the intensity of those prayers might be reason for that special attachment  to that statue in my mind .... and it has always helped me to calm myself down and do my exams well....Another reason for me to remember is that I saw a picture recently that is very similar to that statue. And reminded me of my good old days..... Altogether I can definitely say that its one of the statues I think has influenced my life very positively...
