The statue portrays St. Bartholomew, one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus, who was indeed flayed (skinned) alive and then beheaded
This is probably stretching the concept of statues a little bit. Nevertheless, it's fun:

Joan of Arc, also known as Joan of Arc, Maiden of Orleans, is an outdoor copy of Emmanuel Frémiet's equestrian statue Jeanne d'Arc (1874), installed in Portland, Oregon's Laurelhurst neighborhood, in the United States. The bronze sculpture, which depicts Joan of Arc, was donated to the city by Henry Waldo Coe, who saw Frémiet's original statue in Paris. Portland's copy arrived from France in 1924 and was dedicated on Memorial Day in 1925 in honor of the Doughboys of World War I. -Wiki
