Note: The meaning of the word is sometimes extended so as to include a photographic likeness.

2. Hence, any graphic or vivid delineation or description of a person; as, a portrait in words.

{Portrait bust}, or {Portrait statue}, a bust or statue representing the actual features or person of an individual; -- in distinction from an ideal bust or statue.
