comment Brick-built alternative to “Door 2 x 5 x 5 Swivel, Bracket Base”
If you need more space on the platform, you could use 7 wide beams for the door rather than 5. While being bigger than your original design, this should give you plenty of space for your statue.

comment Brick-built alternative to “Door 2 x 5 x 5 Swivel, Bracket Base”
It should be possible to make this a little shorter. One simple way would be to build a full size Technic brick into the floor rather than the half size one that I used. This would allow you to flip the pin at the bottom the other way around and allow the platform that the minifig is standing on to be lowered down to the level of the ground. That assumes that you have space to build into your floor, though.
