An animated statue is a sculpture animated to seem alive. As such, their appearances can vary wildly, though most resemble humanoid beings. They are often installed as guardians of sites where their form as a statue provides them with camouflage among other inert sculptures. These traps are so effective that adventurers sometimes smash priceless relics out of fear that they might come to life.[1]

Giant animated statue

A giant animated statue often serves the same role as a more powerful golem, making them somewhat redundant and relatively rare.[1]
