The Unicorn as an Outdoor Garden Sculpture

Mystical Unicorn of Avalon StatueGarden statuary can take the form of angels, gnomes, animals, gargoyles, and just about anything that fits into a garden decorating theme. In fact, the versatile nature of resin garden statues means that we can even decorate the yard with strange, mythical creatures. Detailed sculptures of lions, foxes, and horses lend the garden a beautiful, realistic look, but if you are looking for something a bit more magical, put sculptures of dragons and other mythical creatures on display.

The Unicorn is one such creature and statues of this most magical of animals will give the yard a fantastic, enchanting touch. Although no one has ever seen a live Unicorn, in Medieval times, stories of this beautiful, one-horned Equine creature were taken so seriously that it was featured on more than one Coat of Arms, and can still be seen on the official Royal Coat of Arms for the United Kingdom. It also makes a lovely, elegant animal statue for any yard. That pristine, magical beauty is perhaps best displayed by the Mystical Unicorn of Avalon Sculpture. Complement this fine animal yard statue with the smaller yet appropriately named and lovely Enchanted Unicorn Sculpture.     

Purchase $75 or more in resin garden statues and anything else at Design Toscano, and enjoy regular shipping for free.

Outdoor Animal Statues for a Tranquil Garden

Proud Mallard Duck StatueThe backyard is meant to be a place of peace and many of us escape to that personal oasis after a long week of work to sit back with a cold drink, or take a dip in the pool. We can emphasize the tranquil nature of the backyard with certain types of resin garden statues, including sculptures of easy-going animals. Sheep are some of the most easy-going animals around, and the Life-Size Sheep Statue captures that peaceful essence with a detailed, tranquil look. This sculpture also mimics the live sheep that grazed the lawns of Victorian estates and old colonial homes.

Statues of ducks can also lend a peaceful look to the yard. The Proud Mallard Duck Statue shows the same colorful, fine details as a live drake Mallard. This animal yard statue makes a quaint statement near the entrance to the garden or when prominently displayed in the middle of the yard.

If the garden could use a more exotic yet equally peaceful animal statue, you might like Tian Shan, the Asian Panda Sculpture. Tian Shan shows the same striking, familiar black and white pattern and wide-eyed, cute face as the Giant Pandas that reside in the bamboo forests of central China.  

Buy $75 or more in fine decor from Design Toscano and pay nothing for regular shipping.

Three Benefits of a Super Cute Meerkat Statue

Meerkat Family StatueSome animal garden statues are cute, others are adorable, and then there are Meerkats. These lovely little creatures are so cute that they deserve a category of their own. They are simply "super cute" and statues of this funny little animal bring certain benefits to the backyard. Three of those benefits are:

  • Entertainment for garden guests of all ages: Buy the Meerkat Family Sculpture and just watch the reactions on the faces of kids and all of your garden guests. This realistic animal sculpture shows the same cute posture, and mischievous masked appearance as the live, wild animals in their native Kalahari Desert.
  • Heart warming, cheerful decor: Few animal statues can match the easy-going, unique, cheerful look of a Meerkat. Its big, imploring eyes remind us that the garden is a happy place meant for relaxation. That adorable look is wonderfully demonstrated by the Kalahari Meerkat Out of Hole Statue.
  • Give a unique, warm welcome to garden guests: Put the Meerkat Menagerie Welcome Sculpture near the garden gate to welcome all of your guests in fun, adorable, authentic Meerkat fashion. Not to mention, you will also be welcomed by a trio of fun-loving Meerkats every time you walk through the gate to the backyard.

Complement Fall Colors with Animal Garden Sculptures

European Red Fox StatueAlthough it still feels like summer in much of Canada and the USA, cool fall weather is just around the corner. That refreshing fall air is accompanied by football, crisp apples, and beautiful autumn foliage. Maples, Sumac, and other deciduous trees go from yellow to bright crimson red, and most gardens see some fall colors before the leaves fall from the branches. Although fall foliage acts as natural decor all on its own, the backyard looks even better when the right animal statues are used to complement the autumn palette.

The European Red Fox statue is beautiful at any time of the year but its realistic colors are at their best during the fall. The handsome shades of chestnut are a wonderful complement to a carpet of red, green, and yellow leaves, and the piercing, bright eyes of this sculpture help bring it to life.

The Wild Tom Turkey Grand Scale Animal Statue is another fine fall sculpture. This beautiful animal statue is a detailed, accurate portrayal of a male Wild Turkey and shows the same range of colors and patterns as the actual birds that roam the woods and fields of North America. Put this beautiful animal yard statue in the garden and it will fit right in with the fall foliage mosaic.

Use Resin Garden Statues to Change the Atmosphere of Your Home and Business

Strike a Pose Zen Yoga FrogEvery once in a while, the house needs a change. Leave that old decor or paint job in place long enough and it starts to look as old as it feels. This affects the atmosphere of the home, and usually ends up affecting the moods of just about anyone who walks through the front door. When the decor feels "tired", it's time to change it to improve the atmosphere of a home or place of business. Needless to say, it's especially important to change the atmosphere of a place of business because it can affect customers.

If your place could use a bit of creative color, put the Strike a Pose Zen Yoga Frog on display. This unique animal yard statue is a cheerful piece that also works well as a fun indoor statue. Another indoor statue that works well to change the atmosphere of home and place of business is the Venus of Arles Sculpture. Use this beautiful replica of the ancient Greek masterpiece to add classic elegance to any room. It also makes for fine entranceway decor in a restaurant or hotel. If it's time to switch to Gothic decor, a high quality gargoyle like Silas the Sentry and beautiful furniture like the Lord Raffles Grand Hall Lion Leg Table could do the trick.

Easy Going Animal Garden Sculptures

Statues of farm animals can also be incredibly cute. The Yorkshire Lamb Statues are absolutely adorable and add a lovely, peaceful touch to any garden. Put them next to a walkway or near the back door to give garden guests a super cute welcome.

Pillars and Plinths Are Classic Garden Statuary

Classic Statuary Plinth BasesGarden statues come in many shapes and sizes. An animal yard statue might look very different from a bronze fountain or a fluted column but all of these and other sculptures for the yard fall under the category of garden statue decor. We use such sculptures in the yard and place of business because they add character, and inspire. Two of the most ancient types of garden decor are the column and the plinth. These items are still used to this day to act as bases for classic sculptures, and make a simple, classy statement when displayed all on their own.

Our Classic Statuary Plinth Bases show the same simple yet decorative and powerful appearance as Roman plinths on display in the Forum and various museums. Use them to elevate your favorite classic statues to new heights, as a place to display flower plantings, or let their beauty stand on its own.

Our Roman Doric Column Architectural Stone Stool Plinth shows the same wonderfully simple, powerful design as the authentic marble columns that date back to the days of Julius Caesar. This unique decor can be used as your personal imperial side table, to support a classic stone garden angel, or as a classy backyard decoration. 

Looking for high quality Greek garden statues and other beautiful decor for the home and place of business? Find the best statues and decor for the best prices at Design Toscano.

What’s Your Favorite A Garden Gargoyle Statue?

Emmett the Gargoyle SculptureIf you have visited the spectacular Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, you have probably seen, and maybe taken pictures of, some of the most famous gargoyles on the planet. The strange sculptures of fanged beasts on the ramparts of this and other Gothic cathedrals were meant to intimidate all who dared enter into the sacred confines of the church. Their odd appearance has made them popular types of decor to this day even if we don't use gargoyles to scare off garden guests and any unwelcome spirits.

Modern day gargoyle figurines can be fun, scary, highly detailed, and downright cute. If you love an adorable gargoyle, then Emmett the Gargoyle Sculpture might be one of your favorites. Put this lonely little creature in the backyard so he can be friends with your garden fairies, and entertain garden guests. Babble, the Gothic Gargoyle also makes a nice companion for Emmett but keep him away from Scatheus, Guardian of the Shadows! This fantastic, fierce gargoyle is only meant for gardens that play host to dramatic, highly detailed decor. Scatheus looks best when displayed as stunning Halloween decor, or when shown with dragon statues, and classic garden statuary.

Pay nothing for regular shipping on $75 or more purchases of gargoyles, animal garden statues, and other high quality décor at Design Toscano until tomorrow, August 24th.
