Living statues are sentient, or semi-sentient, golems. They are immobile but are magically imbued with the ability to think, talk, and usually with weak magical ability.

Considered an antiquated form of golem by most mages, they saw widespread use in the early days of Avernum, when the resources needed to create more advanced golems were scarce. Most famously, Erika Redmark used living statues as spies. Dragons are fond of living statues, for unknown reasons, and often employ them to help guard their treasure.
