An excellent work

Saint Francis of Assisi, Patron Saint of Animals Garden Statue

 

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

This piece is well designed, with great proportion and detail, and is also well put together. In addition, the size and weight are exactly what I had hoped for! It came packaged in Styrofoam, plastic and cardboard, and was pristine out of the box. I would strongly recommend it to anyone, both as a piece of art and as a reminder of our connection with God and nature.

The Best Garden Gargoyle Statue for a Gothic Garden

Boden Gargoyle Sentinel StatueAs the snow falls outside and we wait out the cold grip of winter, why not warm the heart by making plans for a spring garden? One idea is hosting a Gothic-themed garden instead of a backyard dotted with friendly garden gnomes and innocent animal garden statues. If you feel bad about keeping the gnomes in storage, you could always put a few, choice gnome statues on display while other parts of the garden are dedicated to fine Gothic statuary. However, no matter how you decide to decorate the backyard with Gothic-themed decor, don't forget the gargoyle sculpture. One or more of these classic Gothic statues are an absolute essential aspect of any Gothic-themed garden.

For a look that blends the storied appearance of a Medieval gargoyle with details that pay homage to horror classics, buy the Chained Cathedral Gargoyle Statue. When guests see this eerie sculpture in the garden, they will realize that they aren't walking into any ordinary castle. If you would like to add a regal yet somewhat intimidating Gothic touch to the backyard, put Gargoyle Sentinel Statues on display! Try the fantastic Boden Gargoyle Sentinel Statue and the Argos Gargoyle Sentinel Statue for full effect. No matter which gargoyle statues you choose, don't forget to add another gothic gargoyle touch with Roland the Gargoyle Rain Gutter.

Find these and dozens of other fantastic garden gargoyle statues at Design Toscano today.

Amazing New Dinosaur Animal Garden Statues from Design Toscano

Jurassic-Sized Deinonychus Dinosaur StatueDinosaurs are some of the most fantastic creatures to have ever roamed the Earth. It's hard to imagine massive, many ton, reptilian beasts prowling the same places where many of us walk to work but fossil evidence has shown us that this was exactly what was going on more 70 million years ago. We visit musems to learn about dinosaurs and see their skeletons, but the best way to celebrate those incredible animals is with realistic animal garden sculptures.

We have a fantastic collection of big dinosaur garden statuary and have recently augmented our prehistoric menagerie with several frightentingly good sculptures. Those new dinosaur arrivals include a statue of one of the largest carnivores in history, the Spinosaurus!  Our Jurassic-Sized Spinosaurus Dinosaur Statue was carefully crafted to resemble the original, big mouthed monster that roamed ancient swamps and wetlands. Since this huge dino was even bigger than the famed Tyrannosaurus Rex, we can't help but offer it as a Jurassic sized statue.

Our Jurassic-Sized Deinonychus Dinosaur Statue is another new addition that won't fail to make an impression upon onlookers and garden guests of all ages. Carefully modeled after fossils of the original beast, our sculpture shows the same big, hind-foot claw and sharp teeth that Deinonychus used when attacking prey during the Cretaceous.

Find these resin garden statues and dozens of other realistic dinosaur statues for the backyard, hotel, and restaurant at Design Toscano today.

A Meerkat Statue for Home, Business, and Garden

Meerkat Family at the Watering Hole Garden FountainMeerkats are one of the cutest creatures on the planet. These small furry denizens of the Kalahari Desert earn plenty of fans with their mischievous, playful behavior and thus make excellent animal garden sculptures. Put a large Meerkat Gang Sculpture in the yard and watch as garden guests and kids of all ages notice this adorable addition to the backyard. Compliment it with the fantastic Meerkat Family at the Watering Hole Garden Fountain.

While Meerkats look right at home in the garden, they look just as good inside the home or when displayed in a business. Try the Meerkat Clan Statue for a stunning, beautiful animal yard statue that also adds character to a living room or office. You can bet that it will also be admired and act as a conversation piece in a store, hotel, restaurant, or other business.

Although these Meerkat sculptures are high quality, adorable decor, if you would rather have something a bit more functional, try the Meerkat Clan Sculptural Glass-Topped Side Table. This functional work of art features the same type of cute, realistic meerkats as our other Meerkat statues along with a glass table top that can be used for a lamp, evening cocktails, or displaying fine decor from the Basil Street Gallery.

Two Benefits of a Bigfoot Statue

Bigfoot, the Garden Yeti StatueScotland has the Loch Ness Monster and Nepal may have the Yeti but North America plays host to the most enduring and popular legendary creature of all. We call it "Bigfoot" and whether you believe that this monstrous, hairy Hominid haunts wild places or not, you can't help but admire the ability of this creature to persist in local legends, movies, and novels. At Design Toscano, we honor this legendary creature with detailed sculptures fit for the best of gardens. The following are two of the benefits associated with putting a Bigfoot Sculpture on display:

  • Entertain guests with unique and wonderful statuary: Some of the neighbors might have gardens with beautiful animal garden statues but how many can boast a realistic sculpture of a Bigfoot or two? A statue of North America's favorite mystery monster is always going to be a conversation piece and guests won't help but be impressed by someone with the type of insight and bold creativity needed to decorate the yard with a Bigfoot Statue.
  • Add a bit of mystery to the backyard: Use a sculpture of Bigfoot to help convert a mundane, normal garden into a wilder, more enchanting place that reminds us of the mysteries that may still lurk in the deep woods, canyons, and wilderness areas of North America.

Buy a Bigfoot Statue from Design Toscano to decorate the garden with unique, high quality garden statuary.

Animal Garden Sculptures from Prehistoric Times

Animal garden statues provide a dramatic beautiful natural touch that every garden needs. Since gardens are, by definition, green space, that may sound ironic but a realistic animal yard Jurassic-Sized Triceratops Dinosaur Statuestatue just adds that bit of extra natural appeal. Animal statues pay homage to the unique beauty that has been created by nature's palette, even if they happen to be creatures that went extinct millions of years ago.

In the case of dinosaurs, that happened to be 65 million years in the past and although those magnificent massive reptiles have been long gone, we haven't stopped being fascinated with those amazing prehistoric animals. Kids in particular are especially taken with dinosaurs and will love any of our fantastic prehistoric statues. Our Jurassic-Sized Triceratops makes for a majestic prehistoric animal addition for any backyard and will be a major hit at a hotel or restaurant. Kids of all ages will be amazed when they see the fine details that help to bring this and other dinosaurs "back to life".

Another of those impressive Dino sculptures is the Jurassic-Sized Velociraptor and the T-Rex Dinosaur Garden Sculpture.

Put a dinosaur animal yard statue on display to turn your garden into the most unique backyard on the block!
