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.

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.

Animal Garden Sculptures to Help Celebrate the Winter Holidays

Puppy Parade Welcome SignDecor is a big part of the winter holidays. Decorations help bring out the fun, nostalgic feelings, and cheer that permeate the air during this time of the year.

Although traditional decor is a heart-warming, beautiful thing, you don't need to stop there. One of the great aspects of decor is that you can be as creative as you want. Some other types of decor can add that extra bit of holiday flair that many of us are looking for.

Certain animal statues can impress guests and make for a magical addition to the overall decorating theme. Give folks an extra cute holiday welcome with The Puppy Parade Welcome Sign.

Dolphins Statues and Outdoor Garden Water Fountains

Monumental Five Dophin Spitting Bronze StatueDolphins rank among the most beloved of animals. These intelligent marine mammals seem to enjoy playing in the waves of the sea as much as or even more than people, can learn a wide variety of tricks, and have even saved people from drowning. It's hard not to admire dolphins as they swim next to a boat and jump into the air with spinning leaps. Not surprisingly, these sleek animals have been featured in art for literally thousands of years. Depictions of dolphins can be seen on frescos and pottery that date back to ancient Greece, and they have been frequently immortalized in sculpted form.

Given their aquatic nature, they also make wonderful, fitting sculptures for garden fountains. The Monumental Five Dolphin Spitting Bronze Garden Statue is one of our most impressive fountains. Each of the beautiful sculpted dolphins in this bronze heirloom piece spit water from their mouths and are carefully modeled after the real Bottlenose Dolphins that play in the waters of the Caribbean.

The Dolphins in Tandem Solid Bronze Garden Sculpture is another stunning fountain that depicts everyone's favorite marine mammal at play. This beautiful bronze statue is a powerful, stunning addition to any garden, and works especially well as hotel decor.

Majestic, Powerful Animal Garden Statues

Yorkshire Lamb Garden StatuesAnimal sculptures are a fine addition to any backyard. They lend a pleasant, natural touch to any decorating theme, and also work well in the lobbies of restaurants and hotels. While some animal statues are bucolic or cute, others can be mysterious or a demonstration of elegant power. Folks looking for an easy-going, peaceful sculpture might do best with a farm animal statue like a beautiful Yorkshire Lamb Garden Statue or Pancho the Burro Planter Sculpture. However, those who would rather have a statue that embodies power, mystery, and grace would be better off with a sculpture of a Black Panther.

The Shadowed Predator Black Panther Statue captures the lethal grace of this jungle cat. This realistic feline sculpture hypnotizes with pale green eyes in a dark, stoic face, and a crouching, muscled body ready to pounce. Pair this beauty with a large Black Panther Sculpture to give your garden a natural, powerful look.

Folks who would rather have an animal yard statue that blends power with a majestic appearance can't go wrong with statues of the African Lion. The King of Beasts Lion Sculpture is a fantastic, life-like animal statue that shows Africa's top predator gazing into the distance. This beautiful statue pairs well with the incredible Life Size King of the Lions Sculpture.  

Buy high quality animal garden sculptures for excellent prices at Design Toscano.
