Decide on a location
There's little point in installing a statue in the garden or courtyard if it's not noticeable. Notice the direction you look from the windows, the patio, leaving the house, the other places you and your guests most often stand, sit, pass through.
Place the statue a little to the side, but still in sight. Set it in an outdoor area or use framing to make it stand out.

Beauty in simplicity
When in doubt about the choice, then keep it simple! After all, you don't want a new statue taking up most of the garden and getting in the way all the time. Yes, it can be the centerpiece of the garden, but it also has to complement and blend in with the overall design.
Use statues to draw attention to flowers and plants, draw attention to a beautiful view, place two simple figurines next to each other if you want to use both.
