Find Fantastic Animal-Themed Décor in the Basil Street Gallery

Heads Above Giraffe Floor LampInspiration for decor comes from many sources. The ancient Egyptians based much of their art on their belief system, daily royal life, and the wildlife that occurred in the valley of the Nile. Sculptures of Greek deities were also based on a belief system while Greek statues of fauns and other mythical creatures came from their legends and folktales. Despite the passing of hundreds of years, Egyptian art continues to be popular in many parts of the world, and many a garden boasts a statue of a Greek deity.

Another source of inspiration that has endured since people made paintings on cave walls is that of the animal. The variety and beauty of life on this planet has given rise to countless paintings, sculptures, and wall decor. Several beautiful animal-inspired works are featured in our Basil Street collection, including the realistic Leopards Lair Sculptural Wall Frieze. This unique sculptural wall decor mirrors the behavior of an African Leopard at rest.

Another animal that has inspired many a work of art is the Indian Peafowl. Glad in shimmering blue, green, and bronze, it almost looks too extravagant to be real. Our Peacocks in Paradise Statue captures the incredible beauty of these amazing birds and is a regal addition to home and business.

At Basil Street, we also have animal-themed decor that blends lighting with animal sculptures. The Heads Above Giraffe Floor Lamp is one such unique decor item.

Resin Garden Statues of Beautiful Desert Wildlife

The Great RoadrunnerThe desert is a stark, beautiful place. The vegetation might be covered in spines and thorns but it has its own sort of unique architecture, the sunsets are fantastic, and scenery is inspirational at every turn. The lack of water has also resulted in animals just as interesting as the Saguaros and tumbleweeds. Putting sculptural representations of those animals in the garden is especially fitting in places with an arid climate, in rock gardens, and in backyards that already show a fun display of animal garden statuary.

One of the signature species of the American deserts is the Greater Roadrunner. While most people might only be familiar with this funny bird as a cartoon character, in real life, it happens to be a common, ground dwelling bird of the American southwest. This terrestrial cuckoo species trots along dry creek beds to hunt for small lizards, mice, and even small rattlesnakes. "The Great Roadrunner" Statue captures the determination and speed of this funny bird with fine details and accurate colors.

Another unique desert creature that makes a fine addition to many a backyard is the "Frill-Necked Lizard" Statue. Closely modeled after the frilled lizards that live in the hot, dry deserts of Australia, this high quality animal yard statue is a very close representation of the real thing.

Enjoy 20% off these fine animal garden sculptures and any of the garden statues at Design Toscano from today until April 14th.

Realistic Alligator Animal Garden Statues

Stalking Swamp PredatorAlligators are one of the most respected and interesting animals of the southern swamplands. They are almost entirely native to the United States of America and are a common sight in the waterways of Florida. In Louisiana, locals even use Alligator meat in several Cajun dishes. Although most of the Alligators in the bayou are small and rarely grow bigger than five feet, monsters that reach lengths of eight feet or more still occur in a few of the more remote swamps.

Those big gators are the perfect inspiration for a ferocious animal yard statue. The Stalking Swamp Predator Statue captures the tough and fearsome appearance of an angry Alligator with a sharp, toothy maw, scaly hide, and other accurate details. The eight foot length is also going to make an impression on all of your garden guests! Put it next to the pool for full effect!

Pair the stalking predator with the Snapping Swamp Gator Statue to make every pool party an exciting one. The Gargantuan Garden Gator Statue is another full-sized fearsome Alligator statue that will make anyone think twice before venturing in to your backyard!

Resin Garden Statues to Honor the Memory of Loved Ones

Angels of Alghero Religious StatuesGarden statuary can be used for more than decor. While we do put high quality animal garden sculptures, garden angels, and other classic sculptures into a garden or backyard to help beautify it and give it character, we can also use religious statues for inspiration and paying homage to our belief systems. We can put in outdoor garden water fountains to bring the soothing sound of falling water into the backyard, and the permanence and beauty of sculptures make them perfect for remembering loved ones who have passed away.

The Angel of Grief Monument Statue is a classic piece that was designed by William Wetmore Story in memory of his dearly departed wife. Similar sculptures are seen in cemeteries and gardens to this day because they encapsulate the grief we feel upon losing a loved one. This statue pairs well with the Angels of Alghero Religious Statues and the stunning Intercession Angel: Praying Hands Religious Statue.

Cast stone memorial garden benches are another excellent means of remembering loved ones with garden decor. We have a variety of cast stone benches in our collection that can be personalized with the name of the dearly departed. The In Our Hearts Forever Personalized Cast Stone Memorial Garden Bench is one such item that reminds us of the love we still feel for the departed with a beautiful phrase.

Enjoy 20% off these items and all garden statues at Design Toscano from today until April 14th.

Picking Out the Best Religious Outdoor Statues for Your Garden

Jesus Loves the Little ChildrenReligious-themed statues are a common, beautiful aspect of many gardens. Some of us opt for a classic stone garden angel while others prefer to decorate the garden with beautiful reminders of their faith. There are also people who opt for putting an impressive large Buddha statue in the garden and other Asian-themed religious statues. No matter what your preference is in terms of religious sculptures, you will probably find one or more perfect additions to the garden in our collection of religious resin garden statues. Here are a few tips for picking out the best religious sculpture for your backyard:

  • Pick out a statue that fits in with other garden decor: While most religious statues will easily compliment other garden statue decor, something along the lines of the Jesus Loves the Little Children Garden Sculpture will look much better in a backyard with cheerful gnomes, statues of children, and cute animal garden statues than more solemn sculptures.
  • Use angel statues for a garden with classic statuary: If you have a Victorian garden or one decorated with classic decor, there's a good chance that you already have a few fine angel sculptures. The beautiful Angel of Patience Sculpture will further highlight your fine collection of classic decor.
  • Try a Buddha statue for natural-themed gardens: Sculptures like the Jolly Hotei Buddha Statue and other Buddhas work very well with backyards that put the emphasis on natural decor.

Enjoy 20% off these sculptures and all of the religious statues in our collection when purchased from today until April 7th.

Animal Garden Statues as Garden Benches

Gothic RoundaboutThose of us who have gardens are fortunate indeed. We can use that green space to grow vegetables, try our hand at cultivating rose bushes, feed the birds, throw wonderful backyard parties, or just sit back and read a book under the shade of a favorite tree. No matter how we like to enjoy the beauty of the backyard, it will always be a welcome sanctuary for rest and relaxation. Certain types of decor can aid with relaxation, especially beautiful sculpted benches. An ornate steel bench like the Gothic Roundabout makes a classic artistic statement in any backyard but if the garden could use a stone bench that also acts as an animal sculpture, you might want to add the Giant Neoclassical Swan Garden Bench to your garden statue collection. The fine details and swan-sculpted arms of this big Victorian bench will turn it into centerpiece garden furniture decor.

For a smaller, yet equally regal place to sit and read a book, put the Grand Lion of St. John's Square Sculptural Bench into the garden. The powerfully sculpted lions that make up the legs of this bench give this garden decor a truly royal appearance. Get this wonderful garden bench for the backyard or put it in the reception area of a hotel or restaurant to make clients feel like royalty.

Which Sculptures for Outside Are Suited for a Natural Garden?

Black Bear and Cub Grand Scale Animal SculptureAs our backyards come back to life after the long, cold winter, we can reflect on some different types of gardens. Large estates can host a menagerie of classic garden statuary, animal garden sculptures, and other garden decor. More common, medium-sized gardens can show sculpted hedges, a stone garden angel here and there, and a few other resin garden statues. Small, urban gardens might not have as much space for grand scale statues but do have enough room for a few garden gnomes and potted flowers.

There are also gardens that put the focus on nature. These are the backyards where invasive plants are removed and native plant species are cultivated. Some garden space might also be left to grow on its own and provide more habitat for birds and small animals. Certain types of garden statues are well suited for these types of gardens and include such animal statues as the Mother Doe and Fawn and the Mother Black Bear and Cub Grand Scale Animal Sculpture. Both of these realistic and beautiful garden statue sets look right at home in a wilder, more natural garden. Another statue that looks right at home in a wilder garden is the Bigfoot, the Bashful Yeti Tree Sculpture.

Three Tips to Pick Out the Best Animal Yard Statue for your Garden

Sitting Bengal Tiger Cub StatueAnimal garden sculptures come in many forms and sizes. With so many types of statues to choose from, it can be challenging to pick out the best decor for the garden. The following are three tips to help everyone from beginning gardeners to veterans in backyard decor pick out the best animal statues for their decorating needs:

  • Think about the size of the garden: Whether looking for an animal statue or a stone garden angel, this is one of the most basic things to consider. Size the statue accordingly because you don't want to pick out a statue that ends up dominating the entire garden. Instead, choose animal sculptures that will highlight the beauty of the yard without "taking over". A medium sized animal statue like the Sitting Bengal Tiger Cub Statue is a good bet.
  • Cute or fierce?: While you don't have to choose between the cutest statue and the scariest, gardeners do need to think about the type of animal personality portrayed in their garden. A Meerkat statue is ideal for those in search of a a curious, cute animal.
  • Wild or domesticated: In general, animal statues can also be separated into one of these two categories. Keep this in mind to decide if you would rather see a Swan of the Lake statue in the garden as opposed to a Prowling Spotted Jaguar statue.

Dinosaurs: The Ultimate Animal Garden Sculptures!

Jurassic Sized Allosaurus DinosaurBig cats like lions and tigers make beautiful and stunning animal garden sculptures. We admire these top predators for their beautiful patterns and colors, their grace, and their power. However, as big and strong as these felines might be during the present day, in prehistoric times, they would have been outmatched many times over by the top predators of the Jurassic and Cretaceous. Those massive beasts comprised a variety of fierce dinosaurs, including the likes of Allosaurus and the famous T-Rex.

Although they went extinct millions of years ago, those ultimate land animals live on in museums, books, and on film. Thanks to the imagination and skill of artists who work with resin garden statues, you can also pay homage to dinosaurs with statues of them for the yard. Given their long lasting fame and amazing appearance, dinosaur statues are strong contenders for being the ultimate in animal garden statues. Our Jurassic-Sized Allosaurus Dinosaur Statue is a big, highly detailed dinosaur sculpture that shows the same predatory shape and demeanor of the actual, fanged beast (as far as we know!). Pair it with a small yet powerful Scaled Jurassic T-Rex Raptor Dinosaur Statue. Since such predators also need something suitable to chase, you might want to also buy the realistic Jurassic-Sized Parasaurolopus Dinosaur Statue.

A Meerkat Statue for a Beautiful Spring Garden

Meerkat Gang SculptureSpring is in the air and few statues match that happy feeling better than cute animal garden sculptures. The more adorable, the better and this is why a Meerkat sculpture makes such a good match for a warm spring garden. The Meerkat is as cute as its  name indicates. A bit like a small cat, this itsy bitsy mongoose lives in large colonies in arid environments of southern Africa. In the wild, the colony spends most of their time foraging for bugs and other small animals while a few other meerkats keep watch for potential predators. They do so while standing up on their hind legs and give an alarm call if they spot an eagle, leopard, python, or other possible danger. If that happens, the chirping alarms send the entire colony scampering back to their burrows.

In the backyard, adorable, realistic Meerkat statues don't have to wory about any predators but they are still shown standing on their hind legs because that makes them look incredibly adorable! For example, it's hard to find animal garden statues that are more adorable than the Meerkat Gang Sculpture and the Meerkat family. The Kalahari Meerkat Statue: Into Hole & Out of Hole makes for another very cute addition to any yard and the Meerkat Menagerie Welcome Sculpture just might be the cutest way to welcome guests to the garden.
