I'll bet there isn't anything like that in the other one.
Or in any of the other other ones.
Maybe Ida has one - I don't know.

the other one = other room? house? car? town? state? country?
Ida = H/A/F? Someone you know? a fictional character? a celebrity? Would you be able to find out whether Ida one?

Ida know if Ida has one. Ida asked her if Ida known about it.

Does Ida refer to the state of Idaho? an organization with the acronym IDA (there seem to be lots of those)?

Is the thing (of which there might not be "anything like that" elsewhere) a tangible object? a place? an event/occurrence? a name? an abstract quality?

Are the "ones" which the tangible object is in spaces or locations? If so, are they outdoors? Indoors?

Is the object a sign?

Is there some reason that Idaho would be more likely to have one than another state? Are potatoes relevant? Is anything related to agriculture relevant?

Is the puzzle a conversation? If so, does it go Speaker 1, Speaker 2, Speaker 1?

I don't know if Idaho does have one, just that it is more likely there than in some other places. Neither potatoes nor agriculture is relevant, but ID's location within the US might be.

Is the puzzle a conversation? If so, does it go Speaker 1, Speaker 2, Speaker 1? No, consider it to be me musing to myself.

A statue of a specific person? a specific type of person (e.g. missionary, general in the army, etc.)? a statue of a person holding something in particular? or performing a particular activity? a statue located in a particular type of place (e.g. in front of a city hall, near the capitol building, etc.)? I mean in the sense of what attribute of the statue would make it "like that", whereas a random other statue wouldn't be.

Is the relevance of Idaho when it was first settled? when it became a state? which native people lived there originally?

A statue of a specific person? No. a specific type of person (e.g. missionary, general in the army, etc.)? Yope, allowing for a slight FA a statue of a person holding something in particular? Yope - not exactly 'holding' or performing a particular activity? a statue located in a particular type of place (e.g. in front of a city hall, near the capitol building, etc.)? Yes, but not these examples I mean in the sense of what attribute of the statue would make it "like that", whereas a random other statue wouldn't be. Sort of, you might say.

Is the relevance of Idaho when it was first settled? when it became a state?Yopish, also its location. which native people lived there originally? No.

So in order to qualify as being "like that", a statue would need to A) be of a certain type of person, B) include some object as part of the statue (though not one that the person would be said to be holding), and C) be located/displayed in a certain type of surroundings--am I reading your answers correctly?

As for the type of person (though by your reply, not along the lines of the ones I listed), is it a person of a specific race/ethnicity (e.g. Native American)?

As for the object, is it an article of clothing? something else worn on the body? something the person is standing and/or sitting on?

As for the location, would it need to be inside a specific (type of) building? in front of or otherwise next to a specific (type of) building? be placed in/around some topographic/geologic feature (e.g. on an island, on a bridge, carved out of a mountainside, etc.)?

Yes, you are.

As for the object, is it an article of clothing? something else worn on the body? Most people would say it is an article of clothing. something the person is standing and/or sitting on?

As for the location, would it need to be inside a specific (type of) building? in front of or otherwise next to a specific (type of) building? It would often be placed near a specific type of building. be placed in/around some topographic/geologic feature (e.g. on an island, on a bridge, carved out of a mountainside, etc.)? No to this, but geography in the sense of maps is relevant.

Is the "person" a member of a mythical "race" (elf, dwarf, leprechaun, etc.)?

Is the "mostly article of clothing" a hat? a type of shoes? gloves?

Is the building where it would often be located near related to a government function? entertainment? art? manufacturing of something?

Is the person a fictional character? a generic person (like: a railway worker, a trapper, ..)? or maybe an animal?
The footwear: socks? boots? sneakers? sandals? stockings?
About Idaho: relevant that it's located in the mountains? that it's bordering to Canada?
WAG: German immigration to Idaho relevant?

Is the shape of Idaho relevant? The panhandle? Is the statue of more than one person? Is "the other one" another specific city? Specific state? Are "the other ones" specific cities? Specific states? Are other states that share names (or parts of names) with cities in the state relevant? (Idaho Falls, Oklahoma City, etc.)

Is the person in the statue a religious figure? Jesus? God? A cartoon character? Someone who was based on a real person?

Is the shape of Idaho relevant? The panhandle? Idaho may not be relevant at all. I think that they might have one of these things, but do not know whether they do or not. So it would be better to just ignore the state of Idaho.Is the statue of more than one person? Is "the other one" another specific city? yes Specific state? n.r. Are "the other ones" specific cities? Specific states?Yes to both. Are other states that share names (or parts of names) with cities in the state relevant? (Idaho Falls, Oklahoma City, etc.) Yes, cities with the same name are relevant, but not parts of names.

Is the person in the statue a religious figure? yes! Jesus? God? A cartoon character? Someone who was based on a real person? No to all.

You said, it's in Texas .. but the LPTF list of census places in Texas would probably not help here .. ?

Is it a name that one might expect also in other states? so not typically Texan?
Is the city named after a person? after an indigenous nation? after a place in Europe (brought there by immigrants)?
Is it a name of Spanish origin?

Is it Paris?[b]Yes!

******************************SPOILER******************************
I have been informed that in a cemetery in Paris, Texas, there is a statue of an angel in cowboy boots. I am pretty sure the city of Paris, France, does not have something similar. Nor, probably, do the towns of Paris, AR, Paris, ID, and the Parises in IL, IA, KY, ME, MI, MS, NH, NY, 2 in OH, others in OR, PA, TN, VA, WI, Ontario, Denmark, Kiribati, Panama, PR, plus a Paris Peak in Antarctica, and a 'minor planet' in outer space.
I had to be reliably informed because, , even though I lived not far from Paris, TX, for several years, I never visited the town. But seeing at least one of them is now on my bucket list. [

Ah, well, that's life - C'est la vie!/b]

I wouldn't put it past half of those to have some cowboy-themed statues. Not the one in France nor the ones in ME, NY, NH, PA, or OR, but the ones in IA, KY, and TN in particular are probably pretty "country", and as you say the one in ID is kind of in the "wild" west.

I've wondered if Florence, AL has any of their own silly "local versions" of any Italian masterpieces as a joke...

I donno, but I have been in Moscow, TX, and didn't see any onion domes, and Palestine doesn't look anything like the Middle East. There might be a good Italian restaurant in Naples, TX, though
