Urns Are Also Sculptures for Garden and Home

Resin garden statues come in far more forms than the winged angel, stone lion, or other classic sculptures. Advancements in resin technologies and creative minds have given us a huge Versailles Cherub Urnvariety of absolutely beautiful garden statues to choose from, including fantastic greenmen sculptures, highly detailed animal garden statues, and exquisite, enchanting garden fairies. One of the many other types of garden statue is one that makes a classic statement for any yard and adds a royal touch to any business. This type of sculpture is the urn and it has been decorating plazas and gardens for more than 2,000 years.

The beauty of the urn is that it can be used as a regal place to display a beautiful flowering plant, or its sculpted beauty can stand on its own. The impressive Versailles Cherub Urn is modeled after the impressive urns that dot the extensive gardens of Versailles and like so many of the original royal French urns, this one features twin, winged cherubs and a beautifully carved surface. The four and a half foot height also makes it a proud, centerpiece decoration for any garden.

People who prefer the decor found on old Italian estates will love the Medici Greenman Architectural Garden Urn Statue. Like many sculptures in Tuscan gardens, this classic urn is decorated with classic greenmen on both handles. At two feet in height, it also works well as decor in a hotel, restaurant, or distinguished stores.

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.

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.

We are just getting started with 2014 and although winter conditions might make garden statuary the furthest thing from many of our minds, this is actually the perfect time to look for animal garden statues.

For example, Zairen the Zebra sculpture adds texture to a spring backyard with one of the most beautiful, wild designs found in nature's palette. This high quality, detailed statue also adds a touch of wild and incredible Africa to the yard in its most adorable form.

If the yard already has its quota of adorable and cute statues, why not give it a touch of Asian wild beauty with the Power and Grace Sumatran Tiger Sculpture?

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!

Cute Squirrel Animal Garden Statues

Simone, the Squirrel Hanging SculptureSome animals are fierce, others are rather mundane (like the good old dairy cow), and then there are the animals that can't help but be cute. Although those who love to feed the birds might beg to differ, squirrels fall into the "cute animal" category. Those arboreal rodents earn that distinction with funny little faces, big round eyes, and cute little paws. If you have trees in the backyard, there's a good chance you have a few live squirrels coming to visit now and then. However, even if your garden doesn't play host to visiting squirrels, you can still pay homage to their adorable looks with realistic squirrel statues.

Simone, the Squirrel Hanging Sculpture is carefully crafted to look just like a real, live, furry backyard squirrel. It mirrors the looks and behavior of the real animal by holding up its bushy tail, clinging to a tree, and looking alert with perky ears and bright eyes. Hang Simone on a tree, fence, or garden wall to give the yard an adorable touch.

Although Simone is certainly cute, it might play second string to the downright adorable Lindburg, the Flying Squirrel Statue. With outstretched arms and legs, Lindburg is always ready to take flight from a desk, bookcase, or backyard bench. If you have never seen a flying squirrel, Lindburg is an excellent representation of these cute, nocturnal animals.

Enjoy a 20% discount off these beautiful animal garden sculptures and everything else at the Design Toscano site when purchased by Thursday, December 5th!

SO REALISTIC IT FOOLED MY ARMADILLOS.

SallyDucky from Brooksville - FL - USA reviewed the Tank the Armadillo Garden Statue

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

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.

Garden Statuary or Gift Certificates from Design Toscano?

"Zombie Gnombie" StatueLet'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? What would be a good gift to buy for that quirky brother, that artistic cousin, or that friend with very distinguished tastes? That third question is always the most difficult one to answer but when you shop at Design Toscano, you will find quality gifts for the most challenging people that grace your list. Our site also happens to be a good fit for the first and second questions because we offer such a huge variety of objets d'art, high quality resin garden statues, and fine interior decorations for very good prices.

That said, even if you aren't sure if your brother would prefer a Bigfoot Statue over the unique Zombie Gnombie, you can always give him a Design Toscano gift certificate to let him decide. This is an easy way to let the special people in your life pick out the gifts that suit them best. Since our catalog comes with the gift certificate, you can bet that they will have lots of fun looking for the best Egyptian decorations, animal yard statue, or other beautiful items to decorate and add magic to their home.

Garden Décor: The Overlooked Excellent Gift Idea

"Dreamland Fairy" StatueSometimes 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.

Statues for Garden Can Be Animals, Religious, or Simply Unique

Humpty Dumpty SculptureGarden 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.

Asian Garden Statues for a Contemporary Backyard

Cascading Bamboo Sculptural FountainThe 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.
