That I don't have a clear answer. We have small figurine statues of ancient Egyptian pharaohs (I think they're Pharaohs). I bought a figurine of Anubis for a friend who has a cat she loves named Anubis.  For what it's worth, there's no Egyptian pagan religion today, so not sure how that squares with Hindu statues.  But theoretically, it sounds like an art collection or a cultural collectible, I don't see the problem.

Sometimes Hindu idols walk with me, talk with me, and the evil one encourages me to worship their physical beauty but I must strive to resist their evil temptations.

Sometimes the Egyptian statues sing "walk like an Egyptian" to me, but I yell at them, "stop with the stereotypes guys!"

Statues?! Now you're scaring me lol, I was talking about Indian girls/women.  Wink
i completely missed that!  I must say, you and me both (especially the ones named Meena, those are the hardest temptations to resist) Tongue

Egyptian idols too lol

No Egyptian girl named "Meena" Wink...only dudes like me Tongue
But there are plenty Egyptian girls named "Amina"   Smiley

nah...doesn't count... Tongue

On the flip side, yes, I'd vouch for the beauty of my race of course...but spending so much time with Indians in undergrad really did give make me like a lot of them.
