A sculpture was a type of artwork, such as a statue, created by shaping hard material into an object. An artist that created a sculpture was called a sculptor.

During his studies of Earth, Trelane found Napoléon Bonaparte highly admirable and kept a bust of Napoléon in his castle on Gothos. (TOS: "The Squire of Gothos")

Sculptures of the USS Enterprise-B and USS Enterprise-C adorned the wall of the observation lounge on the USS Enterprise-D during the first few years of that vessel's service. (Star Trek: The Next Generation)

Part of 8 year old Beverly Crusher's fantasy about Stefan was his becoming a famous artist who created metal sculptures. (TNG: "The Host")

The Aldean sculptors Leda and Accolan kept several of their created sculptures in their home on Aldea. (TNG: "When The Bough Breaks")

David was a famous sculpture by the Human artist Michelangelo. In 2370, Jean-Luc Picard compared it to Symnay's Tomb for its ability to inspire and affect individuals. (TNG: "Birthright, Part I")

Later that year, Mrs. Narsu's class were working on clay sculptures on board the USS Enterprise-D. Lieutenant Commander Data was also present in an attempt to "work on his imagination". Counselor Deanna Troi suggested he try something more "abstract" after he produced a sculpture of a Federation data PADD. She suggested he sculpt something to do with music, to which he responded by sculpting a treble clef. (TNG: "Masks")

The Eventualist movement was a school of classical sculpture.

A post-Eventualist, pre-Matoian bronze and triptin sculpture was auctioned at Quark's in 2373. (DS9: "In the Cards")

In 2374, Kathryn Janeway tried to illustrate to Seven of Nine the importance of relaxation and artistic expression by having her sculpt a head made out of clay in the Leonardo da Vinci's workshop program. Seven seemed to find the exercise to be unproductive. (VOY: "The Raven")

Despite her seeming disinterest in the previous exercise, it seemed Seven may have gotten something out of it, as she had the Borg children that she was caring for, Icheb, Mezoti, Azan, and Rebi, participate in clay sculpting in 2376. She instructed the children to create geometric shapes, but Mezoti instead chose to create a sculpture of her. Icheb asked if she was going to implement a punishment protocol for Mezoti's not following the instructions, but Seven, following the advice of Chakotay, praised Mezoti for demonstrating ingenuity and individuality and told her to resume her disorder. (VOY: "Ashes to Ashes")
