Time to Look for New Resin Garden Statues

Simon, the FoxWhether the garden is dusted with frost or buried beneath a white blanket of snow, this is the perfect time to look for new garden statues. There are several benefits of getting started with new garden decor during January or February but the main one has to do with time. Why wait until March or April to pick out a new stone garden angel or change up the garden decorating theme when you can start today? Begin to think about how you want to decorate the garden today and you have a couple of months to look through a wide selection of statues. You will have plenty of time to figure out the best way to decorate the yard instead of taking a chance with a few low quality sculptures at the last minute.

Instead of putting out the same old statuary as last year, start looking for new statues now and you will have more than enough time to decide between beautiful animal garden sculptures like the classic Simon the Fox Garden Statue or the stunning Lioness of Namibia Statue.

Begin now and you can take your time to find the best deals on Greek Garden Statues, gargoyle figurines, and regal sculptures like the Lion of Florence Sentinel Statue and Base

Save Money on Dragon and Gargoyle Figurines at Design Toscano

Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyle SculpturesSome people are fine with a garden that plays host to a few, easy-going gnomes and some cute animal garden statues. There's certainly nothing wrong with that but some of us like to change up our garden statuary display from time to time by featuring a gargoyle sculpture or two. Contrary to what some people might have you believe, gargoyles aren't just meant to perch on the ramparts of old French cathedrals. They can also lend a unique, eye-catching touch to the garden, especially when paired with dragon statues.

We are big fans of beautiful dragon and gargoyle sculptures because we are well aware of the unique look they give to a backyard or even a place of business. Put a gargoyle like Silas the Sentry near the back door and guests will either feel as if they are walking into a medieval mansion, a place of fantasy, or wonder if they should enter in the first place. For less intimidating gargoyle statues that are also on sale, you might like the cute little Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyle Sculptures Set.

However, no gargoyle scene looks complete without an appropriate dragon. We have more than one fine dragon statue on sale including Dread, the Dangling Dragon Wall Sculpture, and the striking Desmond the Dragon Sculpture.

Remember a Dear Pet with a Garden Angel Statue

Cat Memorial Angel Pet StatueLosing a pet is a tragic, saddening experience. For many people, it can be as rough as losing a family member because indeed, the pet was treated as a cherished, special part of the household. If we lose a pet, we feel the need to remember our lost cat, dog, or other animal companion and a garden statue is one of the best ways to do this. Angel sculptures are especially suited for this purpose, and two of our angels are specifically crafted with care to remember pets that have passed on.

The Cat Memorial Angel Pet Statue is a perfect way to mark the resting place of a dear cat. Put this beautiful little animal angel statue where the old friend was buried, or in the cat's favorite corner of the garden. If the lost family member happened to be a dog, we also have the Dog Memorial Angel Pet Statue. This beautiful sculpture is an endearing way to remember your best friend, especially when placed in a shaded, peaceful part of the backyard.

Traditional angel statues can also act as a fine way to remember a loved one. The Thoughts of an Angel Sculptural Wall Roundel and the Cradled in Hope Cherub Statue are two of several angel sculptures in our collection that also work well as pet memorials.

Animal Garden Sculptures as Fine Interior Decor

Madame and Monsieur EscargoA lot of animal statues look great in the garden but there are quite a few that also look just as nice inside the home. At this time of the year, certain animal statues can be especially good for lending a cozy, cheerful touch to the interior of a home or business. After lending color to the garden, take the Madame and Monsieur Escargot, Enormous Garden Snail Statue Set out of storage and put them in the sun room. These fun animal statues help cheer up the darkest and most dreary of winter days, and also work as fine decor for a place of business.

Animal decor like the Black Forest Bear Pedestal Table can also blend function with creative beauty. This fun furniture lends character to parties, the office, and the den. When the weather turns warm, it will also be the life of the party in the backyard.

To give the interior of the home a cute, cozy touch, you can't go wrong with Carotene the Bunny Rabbit Garden Statue. This adorable bunny may have been caught red-handed with its meal of choice but it's far more guilty of being the cutest creature in the garden. When it's cold outside, it looks just as cheery and nice inside the home.

Three Good Arguments for Gargoyle Figurines

Emmett the GargoyleGargoyle garden statues can be fitting decor for any backyard. Given the intimidating, Gothic look of a classic gargoyle, that might not seem feasible for gardens decorated with cute animals and other cheerful, benign sculptures. Nevertheless, although some of the more frightening gargoyles would certainly look out of place in a garden filled with adorable animal garden sculptures, there are other, very cute gargoyles that fit the bill. The following are three arguments that show why Gargoyles are more versatile than many people realize:

 

  • A classic, regal look: Yes, many gargoyle statues give the garden a classic, royal look because they were traditionally limited to the ramparts of cathedrals and castles. They were high class decor meant to scare off all things evil, and can still provide an intimidating, Medieval touch to any garden.

 

  • Unique, beautiful sculptures: This is one of the easiest arguments to make for getting a gargoyle sculpture. A statue like Gaston, the Gothic Climbing Gargoyle is one of a kind wall decor meant to entertain any garden guest. 

Purchase $75 or more in garden statuary, and anything else at Design Toscano until January 14th and get free regular shipping.

Lions, and Tigers, and Outdoor Elephant Statues, Oh My!

Lioness with Cub StatueBig animals like tigers, lions, and bears are known as megafauna, and their large size and impressive stature also turns them into "mega-decor". Put a realistic statue of a lion in the backyard and you lend the garden a wild, noble look. Grace the yard with a beautiful orange, black, and white sculpture of a royal Bengal Tiger and it gives the place an exotic, wild, and powerful touch. Put an elephant statue in the garden and you give the backyard a classic, Victorian look along with, supposedly, a big dose of good luck.

The Lioness with Cub Statue is one of the most impressive animal sculptures in our collection. Not only does this sculpture show the muscled power and beauty of a majestic African Lion, it also captures the tender care a mother cat shows for her kitten. This fine sculpture also makes a noble statement in the courtyard of a restaurant or hotel.

The beauty of a mother cat and baby is also shown by the Life-Size Resting Bengal Tigress and Cub Statue. This incredibly realistic, beautifully detailed statue is a high quality addition to any collection of backyard decor.

The Good Luck, Trunk-Up Baby Elephant Statue is another very realistic depiction of majestic megafauna. This high quality animal yard statue is a wonderful way to announce the arrival of spring.

Three Benefits of a Big Animal Yard Statue

Mombasa, the Garden GiraffeAnimal garden sculptures come in sizes that range from small items for the backyard and interior of the home, to grand-scale statues like big Mombasa, the Garden Giraffe. Although animal statues of any size can give the backyard a lovely touch, the following are three benefits of putting big animal sculptures in the garden and place of business:

  • Centerpiece decor: Every backyard looks better with a centerpiece item because it can give the yard character and a majestic look. A big animal statue like the Unbridled Power Equestrian Horse Statue works well as centerpiece decor on account of its size and striking, realistic appearance.

 

  • Always impressive: A detailed depiction of an animal is always going to impress garden guests, clients, and anyone who looks at them. Mesmerize guests with the graceful power and beauty of the Grande Black Panther Statue.

Three Tips for Decorating a Meerkat Statue

Meerkat ClanThe Meerkat just might be the cutest animal on the planet. That's a pretty big statement but it's hard to argue with an adorable, little, furry creature that has wide, imploring eyes, and stands on its hind legs. Although statues of the Meerkat hardly need anything to make them more adorable, it's always fun to decorate them! These are a few tips for highlighting the beauty of Meerkat statues:

  • Colorful scarves: Meerkats always look cuter with a touch of color, especially a scarf on a cold, winter day. Put a red or blue scarf on an indoor Meerkat to give it, and the home, a cozy look. Each of the members of the Meerkat Family Sculpture deserves a cute scarf.

Save on Beautiful Animal Garden Sculptures of Birds at Design Toscano

Staverden Castle Peacock on an Urn Garden StatueBirds are some of the more charismatic of animals. Many show brightly-colored plumage, add beautiful, natural music to the garden, and are a lot easier to watch than deer, bears, and other mammals. Put out a feeder or outdoor garden water fountains that act as bird baths, and you can watch everything from woodpeckers to jays and colorful finches in your own backyard.

Birds also make wonderful subjects for garden statues. Beautiful Indian Peafowl have strolled through the big gardens of Victorian estates, Roman villas, and royal grounds for hundreds of years. The wild birds also compete with classic, stunning statues of peacocks like the Staverden Castle Peacock on an Urn Garden Statue. This beautiful sculpture pays homage to the white peafowl that grace the lawns of the Staverden Castle in the Netherlands. Pair it with the detailed, colorful Palace Peacock Garden Statue.

Other colorful bird sculptures come in the form of toucans and macaws. Touco the Tropical Toucan Sculpture on Ring Perch is a fun, exotic addition to any yard or place of business. This unique bird statue can also be displayed inside the home during the winter months and pairs well with the Polly in Paradise Parrot Sculpture on Ring perch

The Classic Elegance of a Garden Angel Statue

Angel of PatienceGarden fairies are exquisite, animal garden statues showcase natural beauty, but angel statues probably win the prize when it comes to elegance. Sculptures of these classic, immortal beings have acted as inspiration for more than a thousand years and continue to add a distinct, elegant touch to modern-day gardens. Angel statues still find a place in many a backyard because of their classic appeal, a big part of that stemming from their elegant appearance. Angelic beings wear long, creased robes, stand tall and proud, have long flowing locks, and demonstrate power with big, feathered wings.

Since they are meant to embody something that lacks faults and can do no evil, angels are also shown with beautiful faces and a calm, tranquil demeanor. That classic, elegant blend of power, beauty, and peace is wonderfully shown by the Angel of Patience Sculpture. This dramatic angel lends a beautiful touch to any yard by merit of fine details, robes and face with soft features, and a life-like, patient gaze.

The Extended Grace Angel Statue lends an elegant look to the garden with long, beautiful wings and an artistic pose. This unique, elegant statue also works very well when used as a table centerpiece at important events, or as beautiful interior decor. The Resting Grace Sitting Angel Sculpture makes for an elegant complement to this and other angel statues.

Three Tips for Picking Out the Best Dragon Garden Statues

Asian Dragon of the Great WallDragon decor has been around a lot longer than a lot of folks realize. Some of the oldest wall decor in the world are depictions of dragon-like creatures from the ancient kingdom of Sumer. Dragons have also made their way into paintings, and are featured as statues in ancient China, Mayan Guatemala, and Medieval Europe. Of course, we can't forget about dragon decor in modern times either. Given that any evidence of real, live dragons has yet to be discovered, this decorating theme probably features the most enduring mythical creature on the planet.

If you have yet to pick out a dragon sculpture for your garden, these three tips will help:

 

  • Don't worry about the dragon sculpture fitting in with other decor: The reason you don't really need to worry about this is because since dragons are classic statuary, there is a dragon sculpture that will fit in with any decorating theme. There are even dragon statues that are simply adorable. "Blushing Babel, the Bashful Dragon" Statue is one such statue.

Enjoy 20% off a Fantastic Bigfoot Statue

Bigfoot the Garden YetiBigfoot is arguably the most legendary, mysterious, crypto-creature enigma in North America. Despite the absence of a specimen, clear photos, and unequivocal films, thousands of people believe that this strange animal exists. Their belief is strengthened by the presence of hundreds of huge footprints, occasional pictures, sound recordings, Native American legends of Bigfoot-like creatures, and sightings by many a credible witness. Whether Sasquatch is a living, breathing being, or not, remains to be seen but that shouldn't stop anyone from putting a Big Foot Garden Statue on display.

We based the appearance of our Bigfoot sculptures on dozens of eye-witness descriptions because we wanted to create the closest thing to Bigfoot outside of having an actual Sasquatch in the backyard. This is why our Bigfoot, the Garden Yeti Statue has a large, domed head, is covered in dark fur, and does indeed have large feet. These are some of the characteristics described by people who claim to have seen Sasquatch (and pass lie detector tests when questioned about it), and also help lend a realistic, unique look to our Bigfoot sculptures. From now until December 19th, a 20% discount also makes Bigfoot decor that much better.       

Take 20% off the unique sculptures, resin garden statues, and fantastic decor for garden, home, and business at Design Toscano until December 16th.

Beautiful, Natural Décor at Design Toscano

Spotted Dear, Forest FawnSome of the best decor is centered around a natural theme. Such sculptures blend in with and highlight their surroundings. They also lend an easy-going, pleasant, relaxed touch to the places where they are displayed, even if that happens to be inside a home or office. Many of those natural, easy-going works of art are animal garden sculptures. For example, the Spotted Deer, Forest Fawn Sculpture is a fine fit for a sun room, as a background statue in a library or den, or as a cute animal statue in a hotel or other business. Put this life-like depiction of a young deer in the garden during the spring and summer, and use it to lend natural beauty to the inside of the home when the weather turns cold.

The Black Bear Cubs Up a Tree is another excellent, unique decoration that lends a natural look to the yard, office, or interior of the home. Any of the three bear cubs in this sculpture would be a beautiful animal statue on its own. However, when all three are used in the same unique sculpture, it becomes a wonderful, adorable work of art fit for the garden, home, or place of business. Pair this interesting decor with our Bandit, the Raccoon Statue to augment the cute, natural look.
