I am not exactly sure what you try to say, but your previous statement is a negation. A statue is a symbol, like a vajra or a painting of a white Ah. Considering the meaning of these symbols the idea of having an altar makes perfect sense and if one have an altar it is a good idea to take care of it. If you don't want an altar it doesn't make you more Dzogchen.
Oh my goodness, we seem to be getting further and further away. To be clear, I do have an altar, and there are shrine objects including statues on it. And I do practice sadhana. Tara among them even.
Please go back to the OP and reread the question. The answers are in the Mahayoga teachings. To borrow your phrase, trying to help someone relate to their yidam in a dzogchen way doesn't make anyone more dzogchen. Relating to your sadhana in a way that connects your current view with the path may someday make you "more dzogchen." There are plenty of teachings on how to integrate sadhana with dzogchen meditation, view and conduct, but dzogchen view, meditation and conduct themselves aren't particularly involved in sadhana practice. I hope that's a little more clear.
At any rate, it seems PN has been satisfied for now.
