Goddess Statues are stone representations of the goddess Hylia, seen in Skyward Sword, Breath of the Wild and Tears of the Kingdom.

Skyward Sword

A Goddess Statue in the Isle of Songs.

Goddess Statues are located in places sacred to Hylia.

The largest one, known as THE Statue of the Goddess, was originally located outside the Temple of Hylia in Faron Province, but was raised into The Sky as part of Skyloft when Hylia evacuated the humans from the Surface in the face of Demise's demons.

Three locations with smaller statues are known to exist: in the Skyview Spring behind Skyview Temple, in the Earth Spring behind the Earth Temple and on the Isle of Songs. Each has a Goddess Crest which awaken messages from Hylia in Fi's memory to her hero when struck with a Skyward Strike.

The two Goddess Statues in the Springs each also grant the hero a tablet - the Ruby Tablet in the Skyview Spring, the Amber Tablet in the Earth Spring, allowing passage to another area of the Surface.

The Goddess Statues on the Isle of Songs are animated, singing the songs Farore's Courage, Nayru's Wisdom and Din's Power for Link to learn.

Breath of the Wild

"These are stone statues of the goddess Hylia, who is worshipped throughout Hyrule. They can be found in each of the major villages, but there are also versions large and small in every part of the realm."

Heart Container/Stamina Vessel total distribution.

There are many Goddess Statues in Breath of the Wild. A large Goddess Statue can be found in the ruins of the Temple of Time. When approached, Link can pray to it. If Link possesses four Spirit Orbs, he can trade them for either a Heart Container or an additional one-fifth of a circuit for his Stamina Wheel.

Smaller statues can be found throughout Breath of the Wild in villages, such as Kakariko Village, and at Springs, such as the Spring of Wisdom. These smaller statues can be prayed at for the same choice of upgrades; however, Link cannot pray at the statues in the Springs until the associated Shrine Quest is complete.

The largest and "oldest Statue of the Goddess" sits in the Forgotten Temple, and may be the same Statue which once stood on Skyloft, given age, erosion and resculpting.

The Horned Statue at Hateno Village functions as a variation on the Goddess Statues, with an evil spirit trapped within by Hylia who interchanges Link's Heart Containers and Stamina Vessels in exchange for Rupees.

Age of Calamity

A number of quests involve Goddess Statues:

Tears of the Kingdom

This Tears of the Kingdom section is a stub. You can help the Zelda Dungeon Wiki by expanding it.

Goddess Statues return in Tears of the Kingdom, and exchange four Lights of Blessing for either a Heart Container or Stamina Vessel, in much the same way as they did with Spirit Orbs in Breath of the Wild. In the first encounter with one, in the Temple of Time on Great Sky Island, Link is forced to take a Heart Container, so as to have the vitality to pass through the rear door of the temple.

Once Link has at least one Sage's Vow, he can also trade four Sage's Wills to a Goddess Statue to "strengthen the bond" and upgrade it to a Solemn Sage's Vow. Each Vow can only be strengthened once.
