What does God say about statues?

Idolatry refers to the worship of a tangible idol, and the statue of the deity is considered an icon of his divine power. In Abrahamic religion, idolatry denotes the worship of a false God, while some branches of Christianity permit the use of holy paintings and images. On the other hand, in its 12.5 Verse, Bhagwat Gita states that very few have the time and mind needed to ponder and fix over unmanifested absolute. Bringing an idol becomes easy to focus on qualities and virtues of a manifested representation by engaging senses, emotions, and heart.
