Here is my best explanation:

'work of art' is the definition.
(thesaurus)

'superior in taste maybe' is the subsidiary indication.
'superior' becomes 'u' (I've seen this in other clues).
'in' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'maybe' indicates an anagram.
'taste' anagrammed gives 'state'.
'u' put inside 'state' is 'statue'.
