During inventory, statues are often described as 'empty.' What might a non-empty statue contain? And how might one access the contents? (unsigned comment by 16:18, 16 March 2006 N8chz)

I do not remember all the details, but...
If you hit a monster with a cockatrice corpse, it becomes a statue. The monster inventory becomes the statue contents. So the statue of a grid bug that I sometimes carry around is empty, because grid bugs normally carry nothing. To get the contents, the only method I know is to learn the stone to flesh spell, cast it on a statue, then kill the resulting monster and take the dropped items. --Kernigh 20:26, 22 March 2006 (UTC)
You can also smash the statue to rubble and take its contents from the pile. Polymorphing the statue isn't recommended, as if you polymorph any container into a non-container (in this case, likely a boulder), the contents are lost. GreyKnight 15:45, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Oracle statue weight Edit

Why do not the oracle statues weigh the same every game? Sometimes, I can lift some, but not all foo centaur statues (individually).

Their weight should be 3/2*corpse weight + inventory weight. This also occurrs when all involved statues are empty and depict the same monster type. -Tjr 13:09, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

Weight measurements in one wizard mode game:

Monster type Measured weight Predicted weight
Forest centaur 22 3825
Forest centaur 1275 3825
Mountain centaur 15 3825
Mountain centaur 45 3825
Plains centaur 600 3750
Plains centaur 30 3750
Plains centaur 1350 3750
Plains centaur 225 3750

The same code is responsible for C343-36: Weight of corpses on special levels may not be calculated correctly, which will be fixed in next version. --paxed 11:51, 10 July 2009 (UTC)
