Pillars and Plinths Are Classic Garden Statuary

Classic Statuary Plinth BasesGarden statues come in many shapes and sizes. An animal yard statue might look very different from a bronze fountain or a fluted column but all of these and other sculptures for the yard fall under the category of garden statue decor. We use such sculptures in the yard and place of business because they add character, and inspire. Two of the most ancient types of garden decor are the column and the plinth. These items are still used to this day to act as bases for classic sculptures, and make a simple, classy statement when displayed all on their own.

Our Classic Statuary Plinth Bases show the same simple yet decorative and powerful appearance as Roman plinths on display in the Forum and various museums. Use them to elevate your favorite classic statues to new heights, as a place to display flower plantings, or let their beauty stand on its own.

Our Roman Doric Column Architectural Stone Stool Plinth shows the same wonderfully simple, powerful design as the authentic marble columns that date back to the days of Julius Caesar. This unique decor can be used as your personal imperial side table, to support a classic stone garden angel, or as a classy backyard decoration. 

Looking for high quality Greek garden statues and other beautiful decor for the home and place of business? Find the best statues and decor for the best prices at Design Toscano.

Write a review and send us a photo of a favorite item from our collection and you will entered into a drawing for a $200 gift certificate. This offer ends on August 31st, 2014.

How to Find a Unique Animal Yard Statue

Mystical Unicorn of AvalonAnimal garden statues can take the form of everything from cute little Meerkats to a roaring, leaping tiger statue. They make a naturally beautiful addition to any backyard and also act as popular decor for restaurants and other businesses.

Anyone serious about garden decor hopes to find unique resin garden statues for a good price. The following tips make it easy to find a huge variety of unique and impressive, high quality animal garden decor for great prices:

  • Visit the Design Toscano animal statues page: Go to this web page and you will see several high quality animal statues that won't be found at the nearest mall or garden decor store.

How to Decorate a Bigfoot Statue for the Fall

Bigfoot the Garden YetiAugust might be a lazy, hot time of the year but autumn is just around the corner. The kids will be headed back to school in a few weeks, and Halloween is just two months away! Fall is also a fun time of the year for garden decor, especially if you have a Bigfoot sculpture. Statues of Sasquatch look great any time of the year but look even better as the leaves change color and fall from the trees. It becomes easier for neighbors and guests to notice that Bigfoot in the yard and this acts as the perfect incentive for decorating your Bigfoot decor.

Nevertheless, Bigfoot doesn't have to stand out in the garden all on his own. The large, hairy biped can also be decorated in a number of ways for the autumn season, including the following:

  • Give Sasquatch a hat: Baseball season and cooler temperatures make hats popular during the fall. Adorn Bigfoot with a baseball cap showing the local team and he will fit right in.

 

  • A flannel scarf: To keep him warm on those first nights of frost, put a scarf on your Bigfoot sculpture that matches the colors of the fall foliage.

Resin Garden Statues of Kittens

Kitten Kaboodle Cat Welcome SignGreek garden statues and solemn stone garden angels lend a beautiful, dramatic look to the garden. When put on display in restaurants and hotels, they can also welcome guests in classic, elegant fashion. However, as much as we love classic garden statuary, few folks would refer to such sculptures as being "cute". There are other sculptures that are much more suited for giving a cute touch to the yard, and one of the best is the kitten statue.

Big imploring eyes, a cute little face, and funny antics make kittens incredibly adorable and that same heart warming look is shown by several of our baby cat statues. If you would like to welcome guests to the garden in super cute fashion, put out the Kitten Kaboodle Cat Welcome Sign. Your guests will love it but watch out for cat lovers because they just might try to steal it!

Complement this cute kitten welcome sign with another fun kitten statue in our collection, the Kitten Crowd Family Statue. This sculpture shows a realistic portrayal of a family of happy house cats and looks "purrfect" when placed near the back door or in a library or living room. While acquiring kitten statues for the garden and home, you won't go wrong with the "Cherished Cat" Persian Kitten Statue for the desk. These kitten statues also make great gifts!

Greek Garden Statues or an Animal Yard Statue?

Hebe, the Goddess of YouthMid summer is here and it could be time to change some of the garden statuary. Those garden fairies that were a perfect addition to a backyard during the spring just don't seem to fit in with the other summer decor. Or, it could be that you just didn't get a chance to buy any new decor before summer kicked into gear. Whatever the reason, when it's time to go shopping for new statues for the garden, even if you already know where to buy high quality decor for the best prices, you also have to figure out what to buy.

For example, do you go with a new stone garden angel or other form of classic statuary, or a realistic animal garden sculpture? It would be nice to buy all of the above and more but since most of us are on at least some sort of budget, we have to settle for one or two of our favorite choices. If you are looking to add a touch of class to the garden, you might want to go with something like Hebe the Goddess of Youth or Thalia, Muse of the Garden. If the backyard could stand for a more natural look, we have a large selection of animal garden statues, including such wild animals as the Lioness of Namibia.

Unique Outdoor Elephant Statues for the Garden

Good Fortune Elephant Sculptural Garden ChairThe elephant sculpture is an animal yard statue that tends to stand out from sculptures of deer, bears, and other wildlife. It became a popular animal garden sculpture during Victorian days, especially because elephants were believed to be associated with good luck when they lifted their trunks high above their heads. Elephant statues still make a fine, classic statement and add a distinguished touch to gardens that host them. In addition to beautiful elephant sculptures for the inside of the home, we also have unique outdoor elephant sculptures.

The Good Fortune Elephant Sculptural Garden Chair acts as a unique, lucky place to sit down and relax at the end of a long day. Garden guests will also enjoy sitting in this one of a kind patio chair, especially when placed right next to the inviting waters of a pool.

Speaking of places to swim, we also have an elephant statue that goes for a swim in your lawn. The In for a Swim Elephant Lawn Sculpture is a detailed, realistic elephant statue that looks as if it is swimming right through the garden. Like the actual elephants that take to water in various parts of their range, our aquatic pachyderm moves through the "water" with a raised trunk and happy eyes.

Cute Garden Statues of Climbing Bears

Mischievious Bear Cubs SculptureEvery garden looks better with an animal yard statue or two. Whether putting a tiger statue on display or sculptures of unicorns and other fantasy-genre animals in the yard, animal decor always adds character to the backyard. Baby animals in particular lend a warm, adorable touch to backyard decor. Bear cubs are among the cutest of baby animals and we recognize that adorable look with realistic, heart warming climbing bear cub sculptures.

The Mischievous Bear Cubs Sculpture doesn't need to show anything more than realistic, life-like details to depict bear cubs at their cutest. These furry little guys are naturals at getting into trouble and play with each other every chance they get.

Bear cubs also love to climb trees at every opportunity and no animal sculpture shows this better than our Black Bear Cubs Up a Tree Statue. The trio of baby bears in this statue not only climb the tree but are also just as eager to climb on top of each other to get a better look of their surroundings. Put a smile on the faces of your garden guests by putting this fun animal statue near the entrance to the backyard. Complement it with Yonva the Climbing Bear Sculpture.

Three Perfect Places for a Tiger Sculpture

Powerful Pounce Sumatran Tiger StatueThe Tiger has been respected, revered, and feared for ages. Despite its popularity, this beautiful big cat is rarely seen, is endangered, and is only found in wild, remote, protected areas in southern Asia, and a tiny corner of Siberia. Its popularity is related to its beautiful orange and black pelt, large size, and combination of strength and grace. These attributes are shown by all of our tiger statues, including the very realistic Powerful Pounce" Sumatran Tiger Statue.

A high quality animal statue like this makes a wonderful statement in any home, garden, or place of business but they look best when displayed in certain spots. Three of the best places to showcase a tiger statue are:

  • Right by the back door: Put your tiger next to the back door leading to the garden to impress and greet guests. The powerful "Jungle Cat" Leaping Bengal Tiger looks especially impressive when displayed near the back door or any entranceway!

 

  • In a prominent place: In the wild, tigers prefer to stay out of sight but in the backyard, their power and beauty should always be put on display. The Grand Scale Lying Down Bengal Tiger Statue works well as centerpiece decor in any yard.

Western-Themed Animal Garden Statues

Great White BuffaloThe animal yard statue is fun, easy decor that works for every backyard. Animal statues can be used to make a bold statement about the types of animals you like, can be used to showcase the stunning beauty found in the animal kingdom, and can also add a touch of drama to the garden decorating scheme. Of course, different types of animal statues also work with different types of decorating themes, including decor associated with western states and provinces.

One of the signature animals of the great "Wild West" is the Bison. Huge herds of Bison used to roam the plains and prairies of the west and were an important source of food, clothing, and shelter for several Native American cultures. Although the numbers of Bison have been greatly reduced, populations can still be found in some protected areas and private reserves. The Great White Buffalo sculpture captures the power and beauty of this powerful animal with fine details and a muscled appearance.

The Gray Wolf is another animal associated with the western frontier and still occurs in Yellowstone National Park, and wild remote areas of Montana and Idaho. Put the Howling Lone Wolf Garden Statue on display to give it a wild, provocative, wilderness look. Pair it with the Clever Coyote Statue to complete your western look.

Buy $75 or more of animal garden sculptures and other fine Design Toscano decor and enjoy free standard shipping until June 15th.

Fantastic Flying Resin Garden Statues

Wingspan Seagull StatueGarden statuary has become much more than classic sculptures, angel statues, and gargoyle figurines. Thanks to advances in resin technologies, we can also decorate the yard with beautiful, realistic animal garden sculptures, exquisite garden fountains, and a host of unique statuary for a fraction of the cost associated with marble and other sculpting mediums. Statuary can also be engineered to hang from trees and even look as if it's flying through the backyard. 

What? Flying garden statues? Yes, decor like the incredible Prehistoric Pteranodon Dinosaur Statue can be hung from trees or rafters to help it "fly" through the yard or place of business on wings that span ten feet. Put this incredible garden sculpture on display in one corner of the yard and the equally life-like Pteranodon Scaled Dinosaur Statue in another part of the backyard for full flying effect.

If the garden or home would look better with a flying sculpture of a modern-day animal, you might like our Wingspan Seagull Statue. This realistic statue of a gull has a big, six foot wingspan, and can be hung from a tree in the backyard or inside the home. It also looks great when displayed near a pool.

Quaint Resin Garden Statues for a Peaceful Yard

We might use the backyard to go for a daily swim, to host fun garden parties, and other activities but at the end of the day, it is first and foremost a place of peace.

We go to the garden to revive our senses and relax, and this is why quaint garden statues make such an excellent fit for any backyard.

Pancho the Burro Planter SculpturePancho, the Burro Planter Sculpture is fun, easy-going garden statuary that blends the adorable look of a baby Burro with the natural beauty of flowers. It's up to you to put the flowers or other plants in the planter but once you do, Pancho will show them with pride.

The Carrot Crew Rabbit Statue is another adorable sculpture that adds a fun, quaint touch to any backyard. Put this cute little animal yard sculpture near your carrots, next to a flowerbed, or wherever it can put a daily smile on your face.
