It took you like 2 hours to drag that thing back, and it was not a fun time. The "made of stone" bit made it heavier by a fair margin, yes, but the combination of dragging it through sand and the statue being like 12 puts you firmly in the "fit adult male" range. Impressive, yes, but this thing is still the size of a wolf and is still going to maul you. Unless you dodge, I guess. The statue's still in its coffin, but you move to the other side of the (still bubbling) well/pond from it just to be sure. The creature remains chasing you and --wait, is that your knife? You must have put it down at some point.
