You have coped with the tones of this statue rather well; I'm glad you have converted it to monochrome.
It is the Laocoön, the original of which I believe is in the Vatican. Regarded as the ideal visual expression combining beauty and pain . . .
It's a shame you have clipped the very edges of the statue, but in fact nothing of significance has been lost. Statuary is very difficult to photograph satisfactorily; I think you have done well.
thanks bill much apprecited

If you’ve ever dealt with high-contrast lighting - a landscape under direct sunlight or a brightly-lit screne shot from inside a darkened room - you’ll appreciate what Active D-Lighting has to offer!
If you have the camera on a tripod during live view, you can zoom in on your subject in the monitor for precise focus.
For subjects that are in motion, choose Dynamic-area AF.
If your subject is poorly lit, shutter speed will slow and pictures may be blurred. You can choose a high ISO sensitivity for faster shutter speeds and sharper images.
This option controls how autofocus adjusts to sudden large changes in the distance to the subject during continuous-servo AF.
