Kat735 from Chicago reviewed the Nature's Nurturer: St. Francis Sculpture
Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.
The facial features capture the essence of St. Francis and his love for animals. I wasn't sure if I was going to like how light colored the white statue would be in the garden but I like the contrast with the surrounding floral and green colors.

SallyDucky from Brooksville - FL - USA reviewed the Tank the Armadillo Garden Statue
Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.
I am a licensed wildlife rehabilitator and armadillos are one of the animals rescue. When I first got the Tuscano armadillo statue I was pleased and a bit surprised at how it looked exactly like a nine-banded Armadillo down to the littlest detail. I put it out in the yard of my wildlife rescue center. I had forgotten about it until the next day when I looked out and saw two of the armadillo orphans I had released were inspecting the statue.

Let's face it, it's holiday shopping season and we have to answer those same annual questions. Where are the best places to go shopping? Where are the best deals on the best gifts?

It has often been said that this is the most wonderful time of the year. Although we in the USA have yet to celebrate Thanksgiving, and the official holiday season doesn't start until after Turkey Day, it's already begun for millions of people and many a business. You and your neighbors show that holiday spirit by shopping for gifts and decor whereas stores get into the holiday mode with winter holiday displays, playing Christmas carols and other traditional music, and offering plenty of sales. People who own a business that depends on holiday sales are very aware of why this is the most wonderful time of the year and need to take the right steps to meet their all important fourth quarter goals.
Marketing is key to surpassing the end of the year sales challenge and an important role is played by winter holiday decor. This year, help your business stand out from the crowd by putting unique, eye-catching decor on display. Instead of using the same decorations as other stores, bring in the customers with realistic animal garden statues like the Grand-Scale Black Forest Garden Deer Sculpture. Dress this quality animal statue up as a reindeer and pair it with our fantastic life size Jolly Santa Claus Statue to entertain the holiday crowds and get them talking about your store. We also have a wonderful collection of religious garden statuary and stone garden angels that can also be used for filling your business with holiday cheer (and customers).

Sometimes it's hard to find gifts for the holidays because we just end up thinking about the same types of presents we gave the year before. It might be clothing or some useful item but we don't often think of giving decor for the backyard. This is a perfect gift for anyone who has at least some green space behind the house. If the person in question likes to spend time in the garden, that's even better, but anyone with a backyard could use high quality decor for the garden. Even if he or she already has a fine display of Greek garden statues or a fun bunch of garden gnomes, you can bet that they will love to take the wrapping off another statue for the yard.
To find the best garden statue for that special person, think about how they have decorated their yard along with their hobbies, what they like to read, and so on. If they only have gnomes and other cute garden statuary, garden fairies like the Dreamland Fairy Statue is a good bet. They might also like high quality animal garden statues like adorable Pongo, the Hanging Baby Orangutan. However, if that special person is a fan of science fiction or fantasy novels, buy gargoyles figurines like the Chained Cathedral Gargoyle Statue or a realistic dragon skull statue.

There are many types of presents that we can give for the holidays but the key to a good gift is finding one that will be appreciated or even adored by the recipient. If someone on your holiday gift list happens to love stories with dragons, plays fantasy video games, or is an aficionado of the horror genre, they are going to love it when they open that gift wrap and find a gargoyle statue. Gargoyles are classic decor that can give home and the garden an enchanting, magical touch. The different types of gargoyle sculptures also make it possible to find a gargoyle that fits into every decorating theme.
Cute Emmett the Gargoyle will look right at home in a backyard replete with cheerful garden gnomes, animal statues, and other light-hearted decor. Whether you put little Emmett off in a corner or right next to the back door, guests will love this littlest of gargoyles.
If you would rather see a classic, fierce, and intimidating gargoyle, Boden the Sentinel fits the bill with sharp claws, half open wings, and a no-nonsense expression on its fanged face. Put Boden on one side of a garden path and Argos the Sentinel Gargoyle on the other for full magnificent effect. If those are too fierce, you can go back to the cute route with The Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyles Sculpture Set.
Buy these gargoyles and any of the unique items on the Design Toscano site by the end of Sunday, November 17th and pay nothing for regular shipping.

Garden statuary encompasses a much wider range of subjects than most people realize. While gnomes and fun welcoming signs continue to be popular additions to the backyard (and there's nothing wrong with using them as decor), nowadays, you can also accent the garden with a highly realistic animal yard statue, decorate the yard with stone garden angels along with a wide variety of religious statues, or add a unique touch to the yard with a fantastic Bigfoot Statue.
To bring a bit of Africa into your yard, put statues like the fantastic Lioness with Cub and the Stalking the Savannah Cheetah Statue on display. Both of these fine animal sculptures capture the essence of wild Africa with beautiful details and characteristic behaviors shown by these felines in the wild. Compliment these striking sculptures with the impressive Mombasa, the Garden Giraffe Sculpture.
Religious statues come in many forms and range from classic Christian statues like the breathtaking Ascension: Grand Scale Christ Sculpture, artistic angel-themed decor such as the Santa Croce Angel Wall Frieze, and beautiful Asian religious statues such as the Great Buddha Garden Sanctuary Sculpture.
As far as unique statuary goes, you won't find a better selection of fantasy-themed and unique resin garden statues anywhere else. In addition to our signature Bigfoot Statue, we also make it possible to decorate your yard with friendly alien decor, a quality Humpty Dumpty Sculpture, and much more.

November 11th marks a solemn and very special holiday for the United States of America. In 1918, on the 11th hour of the 11th month an armistice came into effect that called for an end to fighting during the First World War. The following year, that date became officially recognized as Armistice Day and years later, it eventually became known as Veteran's Day, an official holiday that recognizes the sacrifices and service made by veterans of all military branches. To honor this important day, we are offering a 20% discount on everything featured in the Design Toscano site.
Not sure what to buy? Browse the site and see how much you can save on a fantastic stone garden angel like the Angel of Patience Sculpture or the Angel of Grief Monument Statue. Both of these angel sculptures are resin garden statues of the highest quality and show that distinction with detailed wings, flowing robes, and lifelike features.
This is also a good time to buy and save on animal garden statues for your own backyard or as gifts for special friends. Decorate the backyard with a beautiful White Swan Statue or other realistic wildlife statues such as Simon the Fox.
Buy all of your holiday gifts today and tomorrow from Design Toscano and enjoy 20% off as part of our Veteran's Day Sale.

It can be fun and exciting to shop for the holidays but all of those purchases add up. For example, if you want to present guests with a unique and memorable display of holiday decor, you need to buy new, high quality decorations. Throwing a party isn't going to be cheap, especially if you want to treat guests to a delicious spread of fun holiday foods and quality drinks. Most importantly, among other costs, you also need to think about the gifts you need to buy. That last expense can really add up, especially if you have lots of grandkids, siblings, and a host of good friends.
The best way to cut costs without making any sacrifices on quality is by looking for holiday gifts in a place that has frequent sales yet only offers high quality items. That's a fair description of the Design Toscano site, especially if you browse the unique selection of gifts for less than $25. Among those gifts is the Burrowing Buddies Garden Gophers Statue. Family and friends who love cute animals will adore this small statue and love how it's just the right size for a small garden. It also works well as in an indoor sculpture as does our statue of the Goddess Guan Yin. This beautiful sculpture is also available for less than $25 and makes an excellent gift for people who appreciate Asian-themed art.

The garden is meant to be decorated. While you don't have to string lights from the trees (although that can also look nice at the right time of year), the backyard is always going to look better with a bit of decor. Resin garden statues add character and can let you decorate the yard with everything from Greek garden statues to highly detailed animal garden statues and stunning stone garden angels. However, if you would rather stick to a more contemporary touch when it comes to garden decor, you may want to consider using certain Asian garden statues.
While a large Buddha sculpture can add a majestic, timeless touch to the garden, Basho the Sumo Wrestler provides a more modern look. As he squats in classic Sumo fashion Basho gets ready to wrestle any of your garden gnomes and gives the garden a unique east Asian touch. To add depth to your contemporary garden sculptures, pair Basho with a Far East Garden Fighters Sumo Gnome Statue. The Sumo Gnome is also dressed for a wrestling match but looks far too happy and cute to actually do any wrestling. On the other hand, the Far East Garden Fighter Ninja looks more than ready to defend your backyard from squirrels, rabbits, and other intruders. To round out your display of contemporary Asian garden sculptures, you can't go wrong with the beautiful and musical Cascading Bamboo Sculptural Fountain.

Animal garden sculptures bring a unique, natural look to the backyard. We love to see realistic statues of bears, tigers, and even giraffes in the garden but they can also look surprisingly well in other situations. One of the places where animal garden sculptures look best is in hotel gardens and lobbies. Statues of animals always attract attention because most people are fascinated by animals in some way or another. Whether one hikes through wilderness areas to catch a glimpse of bears feeding on salmon or would rather limit his or her wildlife observations to the local zoo, it's almost impossible not to be mesmerized by the beauty of a big, orange and black striped Bengal Tiger. It's likewise difficult to not be impressed by the incredible colors shown by a strutting male Peafowl or the massive majesty of an adult African Elephant.
When it comes down to it, most people like animals and can appreciate statues of members of the wild kingdom but those sculptures do need to show a certain degree of realism. Fortunately, all of the animals in our collection of resin garden statues were carefully designed to capture the wild and beautiful character of living, breathing animals. This is why our Lioness with Cub Statue looks as if it's about to come to life, and why hotel guests will do a double take when they see the stunning Zairen the Zebra Sculpture.
Browse our big collection of animal garden statues to see how you can welcome and entertain hotel guests with realistic, captivating animal sculptures.

Halloween has come and gone but as much as we all love that spooky day of the year, it's already time to start shopping for the next holiday season. Yes, the winter holidays are really just around the corner and they call for plenty of decor. This winter holiday season, instead of using the same decorations as last year, add a touch of elegance to your decorating theme with garden angels. The right garden angel sculpture can provide a unique, very classy look to your winter holiday display. Although it's best to keep those resin garden statues inside, certain angels are going to look fantastic when displayed inside the home, hotel lobby, or as welcoming decor for holiday shoppers.
The beautiful In God's Grace Angel Statue has just the right appearance and size to fit in with other interior holiday decor. The realism and soft look of this wonderful little angel won't fail to impress all of your holiday visitors and party guests. She will also be a beautiful statue for the garden when the winter is over.
The Resting Grace Sitting Angel Sculpture is another stunning angel statue that will look right at home among the rest of your holiday decor. This high quality resin angel statue is modeled after an antique Italian original and makes for lovely decor when placed on a mantel, ledge, or pedestal.

Although most garden statuary looks best when surrounded by the greenery of a big backyard, some statues look just as good inside the home. Certain outdoor sculptures can also act as fantastic, important decor for a business. After using such statues to help beautify the backyard during the summer, bring them inside to add character and charm to both the home and your business. Animal garden statues that look great in the backyard and then just as good or better as interior decor include such resin garden beauties as the "Veiled Chameleon" Statue and the Black Forest Bear Pedestal Table. The chameleon boasts textured, realistic details and several shades of green that add a unique natural touch wherever it is shown. Display it at a local business and kids of all ages will be talking about your unique decor. The bear table is excellent, fun, functional decor that helps bring life to any party. It also acts as a perfect drink and snack holder while watching football and basketball games in the comfort of your home.
Classic statues that fit the bill include Greenmen such as Bacchus, the God of Wine, and Emperor Josephine's Dancer Sculpture. Bacchus is excellent wall decor whether watching over a summer garden party, placed on the wall of a fine restaurant, or when used as fine unique decor for a dinning room. Emperor Josephine's Dancer adds a fun, cheerful touch no matter where this beautiful replica sculpture is displayed.

At Design Toscano, we hold a lot of sales. Sometimes, a sale is for garden statuary while other times, it might pertain to animal garden sculptures. However, keep in mind that even when we don't have an official sale going on, hundreds of our high quality decor items are still on sale.

For additional peace and serenity, pair it with the elegant Madonna of Notre Dame Garden Statue.
Stone garden angels are also religious statues and are meant to inspire. The Glory del Cielo promotes inspiration with detailed wings, carefully carved robes, arms folded across the chest, and an innocent peaceful face gazing up at the heavens.
