Give the Garden a Distinguished Look with Outdoor Elephant Statues

Catch of the Day Grand BearGarden statues come in many forms and are suited to many decorating themes. While some people prefer modern decor, others enjoy decorating the backyard with Greek garden statues and other classic sculptures. When it comes to animal garden statues, some folks go for a wild, dramatic look with decor like the Catch of the Day Grand Bear Sculpture, others prefer cute and well known animals like a Billy Goat Statue, and other folks put unique and extraordinary animal statues on display like the "Death Valley Jake, the Jackalope" Statue.

Many of us also like to put animal statues on display that fit in with a classic decorating theme. One such type of sculpture that makes an ideal fit with classic decor is the elephant statue. The elephant sculpture has played an important role in distinguished gardens and estates for nearly 200 years. It became a symbol of good luck during Victorian times, and continues to lend a classy, fortunate touch to the yards of estates, hotels, and homes to this day. The Good Luck, Trunk-Up Baby Elephant Statue is a beautiful, very realistic sculpture of a young elephant. This majestic animal yard statue makes a distinguished statement in any yard, and looks even better when paired with the beautiful Triumphant Entry Elephant Sculpture.

Where to Put a Large Garden Gargoyle Statue on Display

Florentine Gargoyle StatueGargoyles are classic decor in a category of their own. Those of us who love to decorate our homes with dragons and other types of Gothic decor also have a strong appreciation for high quality gargoyle figurines. However, many folks who do not generally decorate with Gothic items also have a gargoyle statue or two because these interesting sculptures fit in with a variety of decorating themes. For example, a large, high quality gargoyle like the Florentine Gargoyle Statue adds a nice touch to a backyard with a few Greek garden statues, and Emmett the Gargoyle Sculpture can fit in with garden gnomes and cute animal statues.

When purchasing a large gargoyle, one of the biggest challenges is figuring out where it should be put on display. For example, you might want to reserve one side of the backyard for an angel statue, and put Talysus the Terrible Gargoyle Sculpture on the opposite side of the yard. Or, Talysus might look best when placed in a dark, shaded corner of the backyard.

Entranceways are another perfect place for gargoyles because these intimidating stone beasts were meant to act as guards and greet certain guests with cold stares. The Argos Gargoyle Sentinel Statue will look right at home when placed next to the back door, or as a centerpiece item.

Stunning New Bronze Garden Statuary

Fishing Heron in ReedsBronze statues have been a standard aspect of classic gardens for literally thousands of years. Bronze as a sculpting medium is still used to this day because it results in lovely statues that can easily last for centuries.

These new bronze additions include statues of animals, beautiful piped pieces, and a statue or two with children.

One of the new bronze heron statues to make it into our collection is the Fishing Heron in Reeds Cast Bronze Garden Statue. Made in the traditional lost wax method, this beautiful bronze heron is an excellent addition to a pond and is piped to spout water from its bill. It is also perched on a bronze log with reeds for additional realism. This sculpture makes a nice pair with the Standing Heron in Reeds Cast Bronze Garden Statue.

The Steep Climbing Ducks Cast Bronze Garden Statue is another beautiful item that can be piped for a pond. This stunning colored bronze will be especially admired by duck hunters and anyone with an appreciation for the outdoors.

Big Animal Garden Statues for a Big Backyard

Mombasa, the Graden Giraffe StatueFolks who are fortunate to have their own backyard are lucky indeed. They can reserve part of that green space for vegetables and flowering plants, have the opportunity to install a pond or beautiful outdoor garden water fountains, and can relax by the pool on hot summer days. However, folks with a huge backyard are even more fortunate because they might have sufficient space for a soccer field, volleyball court, and plenty of room for a big display of garden statuary.

Greek garden statues can lend a classic look to one corner of the big backyard, the opposite corner can host a grove of trees decorated with greenmen and a Bigfoot statue, and garden fairies can lend an enchanted touch to the flowerbeds. Although grand-scale animal statues will work in any yard, they look most at home in the biggest of backyards.

Mombasa, the Garden Giraffe Statue punctuates the yard with an exciting, naturally artistic look. The kids will love it and pretend that they are on an African safari. Once the safari is over, kids of all ages can relax in the "paws" of the amazing "Sitting Pretty" Oversized Brown Bear Statue with Paw Seat. They will also love the Jurassic-Sized Triceratops Dinosaur Statue.

Eerie, Cheery Gothic Decor

Detest the Rest GargoyleDecorations with a Gothic flair aren't typically associated with happy, bright, or cute decor. On the contrary, most Gothic items are dark, mysterious, and remind us of other, more exciting realms. That said, depending on your sense of humor, there are several Gothic decorations capable of provoking smiles and a laugh or two. The Detest the Rest Gargoyle Statue is dark humor at its best. Unlike other gargoyles, this poor little guy is too shy and grumpy to make the slightest attempt at intimidation. Since it looks like he could use a friend, put him near garden fairies or a cute animal yard statue. If displayed inside the home, maybe the cat will curl up next to him. "Detest" looks even better when paired with Oscar: The Gargoyle with Attitude.

Speaking of gargoyles, the Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyles might be the cutest of their kind. These fun little sculptures are a unique, cheerful addition to the work desk, a fireplace mantle, or your favorite spot for displaying one of a kind works of art. Get "The Black Widow Spider" Statues to give them some equally unique company.

We also have a variety of Gothic wall decor items to fit any decorating need including the Zombie Gothic Wall Sculpture, and the "Fangs of the Vampire" Cast Iron Bottle Opener.

The Leopards Lair Sculptural Wall FriezeSome of us love dogs and some of us love cats. There are also people who love both of these well known animals but then there are folks who adore all things feline.

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.
