Shelley is really talking about the passions of people but I suppose you could use ambitions as well. The speaker notes that the artist rendered this passion on the statues as if the passions/ambition lingers after death; they are that powerful and ceaseless, "Which yet survive, stamp'd on these lifeless things"
