in short, formulates inner ideas (e.g. religious); in most cases it is a depiction of the dreamer's being and idea of himself, by which the sculpture becomes an example of the essence of creation and the development of one's being (see archetype of the Self).
the material from which the sculpture is made can be important for interpreting the dream (see the material); e.g. a stone statue can relate to fate (see Stone).
commemorating the deceased: this image expresses crisis; stagnation in past patterns of behavior and thinking.
of a bust: personality-related idea whose form is depicted in the bust: if it's a bust of an unknown person, then these ideas are universal.
burning sculpture heads: symbolizes activities geared toward the transformation of the intellect and reason in favor of intuition and future knowledge.
while sculptures of mothers, fathers and acquaintances are gradually degraded on the spiritual journey (usually by being damaged), sculptures of saints (Buddha, Christ, Virgin Mary and others) become increasingly valuable (of gold, precious stones) so that eventually these sculptures come to life and with it the tendency in the dreamer that the sculpture represents is awakened.
animals sculptures (usually wooden): deadened instincts; these sculptures must not be venerated by the dreamer since this would confirm that he is living in the grip of instincts that are symbolized by the venerated animal.
sculptures of dictators and sculptures glorifying a violent totalitarian regime: if in the dream itself we recall the negativity of these images, we have the power to successfully fight them, otherwise these are very dangerous thoughts that lead a person to negative (usually instinctual) experiences; see Dictator.
black or covered with dark material: a negative aspect of the psyche has arisen from the subconscious to conscious experience that needs to be recognized, understood, and removed from this black "cover" through forgiveness so that it can be assimilated by compassion; then this negative aspect of the psyche will not threaten; the symbol of sexuality that expresses the negative male or female element (instinctual animus or instinctual anima) often possesses a similar negative expression of itself; wonderful experiences of the spiritual level of consciousness appear after the assimilation of negatives.
removing a precious stone or other gem from the sculpture of a saint: a very negative image in which the dreamer's ego extracts a positive trait from an essential experience in order to show it off to others; this is a trait that should have led him in humility to a state of being that is expressed by the sculpture of the saint.
hiding a sculpture of a saint: this scene is an important selfless act since we are not showing off the traits linked to this sculpture, but concealing them within so that they can develop in our impersonal and compassionate acts.
people changing into sculptures: this image symbolizes the formation of karma*26, since everything alive (ideas, feelings and acts) turns into a stone sculpture according to the Law of Karma*34.
come to life: temporarily deadened ideas and views come back to life and guide the dreamer through life; these images are often accompanied by amorous dreams since an altruistic act of renunciation of oneself revives numb and still lifeless ideals or forgotten states of being.
negative traits of sculptures that come to life: these are traits that arise from the dreamer's subconscious and it is in the dreamer's interest to assimilate these traits through a higher mind.
a religious sculpture or sculpture of a saint that has come to life: an inanimate, dead and still only theoretical faith is reviving and entering with full force the dreamer's consciousness to transform his view of the world, events in it and his view of himself.
a sculpture of the Virgin Mary or Jesus that has come to life and is speaking: a warm relationship to Christianity has led to the dreamer to an important message; such an image is a true blessing on the spiritual journey.
emerging from water: represents an unexpected fate or a new emotional relationship arising from the unconscious to the conscious life; the color of the water and sculpture's material is important for fully understanding the dream.
penetrating to the inside of sculptures: the dreamer has fully understood the traits or state symbolized by the sculpture.
the spiritual state of a being is represented directly in a dream: an exceptional dream that symbolizes the rebirth of being on the dreamer's spiritual journey, and frequently reveals another path that the dreamer will take; these sculptures can have a non-traditional appearance, content and influence, but a person always understands in them the spiritual meaning.
