One of my players just got his character killed, and because it makes most sense for his concept of "showman gladiator", his surviving sister has decided to use all his wealth to erect a statue of him in their home city.
Unfortunately though, I don't know how to decide on a reasonable price for a statue. I have no experience with sculpting (let alone historically) and the Art section in the DMG only handles small art that would work as loot, so it doesn't help me here. The only thing I know is that it costs 2gp to put a skilled worker to work for a day, but that doesn't help me much.
Are there any examples where statues are priced? Or an explanation of how much work / raw material is required to build them? I can't imagine I'm the first one whose players want a statue of one of their own commissioned. (And, this being a living game, this guy probably isn't going to be the last)
Ideally, they want a big one (life sized or better) and they have 190gp available to build it. There will be some money lost on convincing the city to let them do this (the cost for that is outside the scope of this question) so ideally, I'd like a few examples to determine this, but an example of some large statues from an official source is also fine as an alternative.
