KGT 79:  One of the most highly developed of the Klingon arts is sculpture. A statue of any kind, realistic or abstract, is a Hew. Realistic statues are found in public spaces, most notably the Hall of Heroes ({Subpu' vaS}), which features likenesses of famous Klingon warriors.

Janeway referred to "the obelisk on Khitomer" (VOY "Memorial").
