statue vs. sculpture

Posted under Tags

Definitionally, a statue is a sculpture depicting a full-body person or animal. In practice, the terms are often used without distinction, including on Danbooru (many busts are tagged with statue, for example).

I thought about implying statue -> sculpture, but statue is a much larger tag, so an implication won't go through. How do we feel about combining the two tags (aliasing statue -> sculpture)? Or should I go through and tag more statue pics with sculpture until we have enough for the implication?
