This is not an InDesign technial question as much as a layout and form question. I know some here design books and am hopeful for help.
I need to list all the illustrations, statues and drawings in a book. I know how to make a TOC, what I don't know is exactly what it should be called, and how artists should be listed. None of the illustrations or statues etc. are noted as Figure 3-5 etc.; I planned on using the captions and page number only, so "List of Figures" doesn't really woek. "List of Illustrations" isn't right as it contains statues. Some artists are known, some unknown. Some are stored at a monastery in India, some are with the artist.
Can someone give me some idea of how to do this so it's correct and so I can get this darn book to the printer?
I'm happy to email a PDF or whatever if the below doesn't suffice.
So many thanks to all. (Forgive me for not asking at software question.)

Well, unless this is a large, and very heavy, volume, you don't really have statues in it, you have illustrations of the statues (which are probably photographs).
I'd call this a list of illustrations, myself.
I'd also probaly adopt some sort of inline method for listing descriptive material including medium and artist ( and list artist unknown when that's the case), but a lot depends on how things are captioned and whether the caption structure works as-is for the table, or if you would need to create a new set of tags
Your answer was perfect. Really helped me figure it out. And it made me laugh.
