神像聳立在一個空心的臺座上，早在1867年Jacob已在那裡居住。要進入Jacob的住處，可以透過推動臺座外牆的石塊，從而進到一條通往住處的走廊。住處內有多根支撐著臺座的柱子，而在中心則有一個火坑。During Jacob's time spent living there, he wove a tapestry on one of the walls. A ceiling vent permits a view of the remaining leg of the statue from inside. (5x16)
Sawyer's group experienced a time flash to approximately this period of time, and briefly saw the back of the statue from the site of the well before Locke turned the frozen wheel, moving the Island and causing another time flash, after which they moved to 1974. (5x08)
1867年The statue was still fully intact during the time before the Black Rock arrived at the Island. Its hollow base was inhabited by Jacob. It was also the location of a seaside meeting between Jacob and his nemesis some time before the Black Rock's arrival. (5x16) The statue was destroyed when the Black Rock, carried ashore by an enormous tidal wave, crashed into it during a storm. Given the height of the statue, the wave was easily over 200ft in height. The statue was referred to as the "Devil" by a prisoner aboard the ship, that "...the island is guarded by the Devil." (6x09)
After the crash of Oceanic Flight 815 in 2004, the statue was seen by Sun, Sayid, and Jin while sailing around the Island in a plot to attack the Others. Sayid spotted the statue first, and was disconcerted to find that the statue had four toes, as well as that the rest of the statue was missing. (2x23)
Three years later, after the crash of Ajira Airways Flight 316, Bram and Ilana, passengers of Flight 316 who worked for Jacob, attempted to find Jacob at his cabin, but instead found a woven illustration of the statue pinned to the wall by a knife. Realizing that Jacob was likely at the statue instead of in the cabin, they burned the cabin and traveled to the statue, revealing to Richard that the person inside the statue with Ben and Jacob was not John Locke by showing Richard the body of the real Locke which they, along with several other survivors of Flight 316, had carried around in a large metal case. (5x16)
Meanwhile, an entity claiming to be John Locke approached Richard and demanded to be taken to Jacob, whom he secretly intended to kill. Richard, unaware that this person was not actually Locke, agreed, leading him to the statue's ruins and showing him the entrance to the base, allowing Locke and Ben to enter. Once inside, the entity claiming to be Locke was revealed to be Jacob's ancient enemy, who convinced Ben to stab Jacob and then kicked the dying Jacob into the fire pit, setting him alight and presumably killing him.

Wired magazine's May 2009 issue, guest-edited by J.J. Abrams, included a Lost-related puzzle on pages 104-105 consisting of two pages of one- and two-digit numbers. When the first page was decrypted using a Vigenère cipher, it read:
U S E L E T
or, "use letters backward from end".
Counting letters backwards from the end of a section of an article on time travel written by Thorne Plates for the August 2003 issue of Wired, in which the Casimir effect was referenced, yielded the solution to the second page:
T H E F O U
or, "The four-toed statue is Taweret".
After a suggestion from Nick Tierce that the numbers represented an alphanumeric code, Steven Bevacqua, a postproduction supervisor for the television series Life, who was the first to solve the issue's master puzzle, decrypted the first half of the Lost sub-puzzle, whereupon Boulder, Colorado musician Jon Leyba solved the second half of the puzzle.
- The statue was confirmed by ABC to depict Taweret, and has since been confirmed again by the solution to a puzzle in the May 2009 issue of Wired magazine, which was edited by Lost co-creator J.J. Abrams.
- The identity of the figure portrayed by the statue was specified in an Enhanced episode:
The giant statue is a variation of Tawaret
- Jin, Jacob and Jacob's nemesis are the only people known to have seen both the ruin and the fully-intact statue. Sun has also seen the statue on two separate occasions though both times she saw the ruins.
- In a teleconference with select fans held on April 17, 2008, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse slightly rectified a misquote of an anecdote previously told by Lindelof at the 2008 Paley Festival. According to Cuse, the true story was that the statue was originally stated to have six toes in the script, but ABC executives mandated that it better have only four toes, which was considered less "weird" than six toes. According to their own words, Lindelof and Cuse didn't mind as long as the statue didn't have five toes. However, sculptor Jim Van Houten gave yet another explanation in the May 9, 2008 video podcast, claiming that the statue's foot was changed from six to four toes because it was hard to tell that it wasn't a regular five-toed foot when it had six toes. Note that in the real world, hippos have four toes, which in hindsight would match with a hippopotamus-headed Taweret. Van Houten also designed the statue used in ""
