Good perspective and I like that the background is OOF. For fun, you ought to go back and take this shot so that only the extended hand on the left is in focus, and have everything else OOF. Could be interesting!

The center spacing doesn't look right, especially with the left hand extended out. Doesn't give it flow I guess.

I'm not a big fan of direct statue pictures don't mind if they are used as part of composing a bigger picture. For example... maybe the same statue with a person kneeling at the bottom of it shot with the camera on the ground catching the person praying and the statue up higher (hope you get what I mean). Spend a little more time composing your shot and get creative.
