Portraits of figures from the distant past tend to be stiff and awkwardly posed, with the subject staring at the viewer.

Statues can be photographed from different angles, effectively catching the subject unaware. This often results in a much more natural viewpoint, allowing us to see the subject as they really were, rather than how they chose to present themselves.
