Model Scale

How can one find the thickness of a statue in order for it to be structurally sound?

Is there some sort of equation?The statue is of a person.

There are expensive and complicated computer modeling tools that could do this for you, and you might get the right answer the first time but the odds are against it. Empirical testing would give you a more accurate answer much easier. The trial and error approach is way more pragmatic.

Build simple structures of varying thickness out of your material, and see how much stress they can take before failing. For example, you could mount a 6 foot x 18 inch x ?thick sheet standing on end, and apply force to the top. See how much force it takes to bend or break it. Then try it with cylindrical shapes or ideally rough humanoid shapes.

If the material is expensive, you could test with scale models and get accurate results too. Just scale the force to correspond to the model scale.
