I hated material components for spells. I reserved those for rituals, except for spells that it really made sense for, like an ink painting spell using ink.

That's why most recent editions have spell component pouches that just say everything that isn't expensive for the sake of balance is covered.
("Recent" being the last 20ish years since 3.5 did that)

This is reading about Chasing Perfection, and how it requires a small statue.

Is that a reference? Chasing Perfection requiring a small statuette makes me think of Pygmalion, who created a statue so perfect that he fell in love with it.

I feel like it's more just a general reference to the tradition of Ancient Greek and Roman sculpture being about attempting to achieve perfection in the human form- and once they got that, perfection BEYOND the human form. Conceptual perfection, in concrete form.
