Greetings, from way down yonder in New Orleans, LA USA. I am pleased to announce the new group name has changed from (Photography of Statues) to:
PHOTOGRAPHY AND PAINTINGS OF STATUES!
This union was created to bring together all creative, accomplished, masterful artist together in the group. The previous group was limited to just photographers. Artist can now submit their paintings into the group. Example: Oils, water-colors, acrylic, sketches, Digital creations etc.
2 Images allowed daily.
Photograph or Painting creation of statues, any medium to the group.
. Keep in mind that copyright laws protecting the creator of statues vary nationally and international, so make sure you read copyright laws pertaining to taking photos of certain statues before you attempt to market your prints for sale. Any legal issues pertaining to copyright laws should be solely the artist responsibility to review and do what is comfortable to you as an artist or photographer.
. Any discussion or ideas for the group Photography and Paintings of Statues will be welcomed for consideration. Please include any details of the statue you submit in the notes section (right hand column of the photo you upload) , name of sculptor, year so forth. In attempts to remain to the theme of the group, submissions of any medium pertaining to statues will be accepted for consideration into the group.
Revised July 1, 2014 Please include the name of the sculptor in your photographer notes, there are instances when this may not be possible but as a photographer or artist take the time out to research and give the sculptor due credit for hers/his beautiful creation.
The group has become of major interest to the Fine Art Community, In a matter of weeks the group has gone from very low activity to now high activity rankings.
The group has undergone a great makeover. The feature page will now be rotated and kept to minimum on the group home feature page. Any statue (photo or painting of a statue) having historic significance will be considered for a feature on the group home page. This group contains over 2,000 images of archival images of statues and sculptures, photography or digital photography and art.
Also, any related photo submitted by a member, example: a painting of a monument or sculpture having will be considered for the group or feature page.
Any unrelated photo such as landscapes, flowers, anything not pertaining to the group will be deleted.

Congrats to Georgia Mizuleva your wonderful image of Neptune and the Dove has been selected as Avatar for the month of November 2014.
