Statues on Jokers

These jokers are pictures of statues, they are part of the artsy section.  The related sections: 
  1. Beautiful art jokers, classic, digital, and  flowers, fruit, mermaids
  2. Card-themed Jokers (YES, this is intentional) 
  3. Mystical, deathly, and devils. Pirates too.
  4. Masks
  5. Statues - This is the article you are reading here!








Here are the statue jokers (updated 12/2020): there are 70 today.

The first set shows classic Greek and more modern statues erected on rocks, in fountains, and well, just erected! 



The top two corners are jokers (I think) from Randy Butterfield's deck "Rome".



 If you look at the top right on this page, you'll see a statue. The two to his left are part of the same set which explains why a picture and a building are here in the architectural section.






I'm piloting a new system of updating in which I add the new ones sometimes (like this) without having to rephotograph the entire section.  

Here were about 70 statue jokers (12/2020). And below are four new statues added in January 2021.  

For you total joker collecting nerds (my peeps), this means that the pictured pages will not necessarily match the pages actually in the album since I rarely just add new jokers to the end of the section: I usually insert them on pages where I feel they most belong which produces a cascading set of reorgs through the section. (BTW: this is a new system today. How long will this transition take to ripple through the entire collection? A year? A quarter of a year?).  


My other innovation in methodology this morning relates to duplicate jokers. Until today, I have just put the duplicates in the same pockets on the pages which made collecting easy but it made trading very difficult since I could not easily produce a list of duplicates that I have. I'm now creating cuplicate ("dupes") page at the end of each section. Here's my first two.  





 
Want to see more jokers? I'd suggest these related sections: 
  1. Beautiful art jokers, classicdigital, and  flowers, fruit, mermaids
  2. Card-themed Jokers (YES, this is intentional) 
  3. Mystical, deathly, and devils. Pirates too.
  4. Masks
  5. Statues - this article with 70!
  6. Topsy Turvy - This has subsections that mirror the overall organization. They are:
    1. Animals - 40
    2. Card Themed - 52
    3. Music - 35
    4. Ladies & Masks - 28
    5. Jesters and clowns 65
    6. People -61
    7. Things - 32 - this is where two headed or duplex statue jokers would go since topsy overrules statues as an organizing principle.
