Inside the statue, or in the shadow?

Someone posting in response to the Lostpedia blog "Tabula rasa for the Island?" said something about Jacob being inside the statue, whereas the question was "What lies in the SHADOW of the Statue?" So, I'm wondering: could it be Locke? His dead body, at the end of the finale, was literally laying in the sand, in the shadow of the statue. Could Locke still be "He who will save us all?"
