Can you sell figurines as the purpose of it is to display/put on show? Would it be permissible in Islam?
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
You may sell pictures of inanimate objects, e.g., trees, mountains, ocean, a human/animal without the head, etc. However, it is prohibited to draw and sell that which is animate, e.g., humans, animals, etc. Figurines are animate; thus, it would be prohibited to sell.
