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!

Statues for Garden Can Also Be Statues for Business

It depends on the business but the right type of statues can work as marketing pieces and provide a fun atmosphere that keeps bringing customers back to your store. Statuary does especially well in hotels and restaurants. For example, greet customers with one of our beautiful outdoor water fountains and they can't help but feel impressed. These and other high quality resin garden statues add to the atmosphere of your business, give it character, and thus make it easier for people to remember.

If someone sees a stunning animal yard statue in the lobby of a hotel, restaurant, or other place of business, you can bet that they are going to mention it to family and friends. Use a unique sculpture like our Bigfoot Statue or Tian Shan, the Panda and pictures of those statues (along with your place) will be making the rounds of social media. It's fun, easy marketing that works on its own and helps makes a business stand out from a crowd of other stores, hotels, and restaurants.

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.

Three Resin Garden Statues for Animal Lovers

The Grand-Scale Wildlife Animal Collection: The Galapagos Tortoise StatueSome of us like cats, dogs, and 'traditional' pets, while others love animals of all sorts. If you or someone you know absolutely loves animals of all kinds, the following three animal garden statues make excellent backyard decor:

  • "The Expert Fisherman" Black Bear Statue": This sculpture of a bear is a true work of art that shows the behavior and beauty of a Black Bear with fine, accurate details.

However, his friend Porker is still hungry and shows it with alert, inquisitive eyes. These adorable animal garden sculptures make a wonderful compliment to a backyard with garden gnomes and other fun statues.
  • The Galapagos Tortoise Statue: This big spectacular sculpture of a giant land tortoise will be one of the most amazing statues in your collection. It looks so real that neighbors might wonder if you have a private zoo.

Animal Garden Sculptures of Wild Creatures

"The Expert Fisherman" Black Bear StatueWe are all familiar with domesticated common animals like dogs, cats, cows, and chickens. While those animals do make excellent subjects for an animal yard statue, sometimes, we want something a bit more on the wild side for the backyard. Keep the cute statues of laughing pigs and dancing geese near the back door but let the other parts of your garden go wild with sculptures of bears, moose, and other beautiful wildlife. The popular Catch of the Day Grand Bear Sculpture is one such item. The very realistic nature of this sculpture shows that artist Samuel Lightfoot must be familiar with seeing bears that fish for salmon in wild Alaskan rivers.

This statue is a work of art that will be admired by every guest to the garden. Its details and natural beauty also make it an excellent item to display in outdoor-related stores and restaurants. Pair it with the equally realistic "Expert Fisherman" Black Bear Sculpture, another talented creation by Samuel Lightfoot.

The Simon the Fox Garden Statue lets you pay homage to one of nature's craftiest creatures. The fox has been immortalized in folk tales and cartoons in many a culture, and in Japanese traditions, is viewed as a magical creature. For that reason, this realistic depiction of a wild Red Fox works well with garden fairies, gnomes, and other mystical creatures.

Meerkat Statue or a Tiger Sculpture?

The Meerkat Clan StatueThe backyard can have a pleasing display of garden fairy statues and Greek garden statues but won't be complete until it also boasts at least one animal yard statue. Animal garden statues can add a key, natural touch that helps to complete the look of a backyard. Although a sculpted fountain gives a crowning touch to backyard decor and no garden should be without one or two elegant garden benches, animal garden sculptures showcase the stunning and dramatic beauty of nature's palette. However, once you realize that the garden could use a statue of a wild animal, which type of animal do you get?

If you are looking for "cute", you can't go wrong with a Meerkat Sculpture. While many animals look cute in their own way, the Meerkat is unbelievably and undeniably adorable. In fact, this mischievous little creature looks so cute, it can be hard to believe that it actually exists. Its tiny black paws and little black mask make this furry creature look like it's always up to no good while its big pleasing eyes and tendency to stand on its hind legs melts the heart with ease.

Powerful Pounce: Sumatran Tiger StatueHowever, if you would rather opt for majesty and drama, forget about the Meerkat and get a stunning Tiger Sculpture! The Powerful Pounce Sumatran Tiger Statue blends fine details and beauty for a very realistic, powerful depiction of this big Asian cat. 

Find high quality, realistic statues of Tigers and Meerkats at Design Toscano today.

Outdoor Animal Statues that Look Just as Good Inside the Home

Playful Puppy Dogs StatueAnimal garden sculptures make for eye catching decor that can fit into any decorating theme. Statues of wild animals such as lions, tigers, or deer celebrate the beauty of the natural world while statues of squirrels, roosters, and other familiar animals give the yard a cozy, wholesome touch. Although animal statues tend to be viewed as outdoor decor, some sculptures can make just as beautiful a statement when displayed inside the home. Brutus the English Bulldog is one such statue. This fine resin statue captures the fierce yet comical appearance of an English Bulldog intent on protecting its favorite chewing shoe, bone, or flower patch. Put this quality animal yard statue just outside the back door during the summer and put it next to the television during the winter.

The Playful Puppy Dogs Statue also looks just as cheerful when placed in a sunny summer garden or admired inside the home. This beautiful little statue captures the cute and happy appearance of puppy dogs at play with fine, realistic details.

Climbing animal statues can also make excellent wall decor inside the home after they have graced the walls in the garden. One such sculpture is the Giant Garden Gecko Lizard. The glossy green hues and bright yellow toes of this striking, three foot long plus gecko sculpture will add a bright bit of color and character to the walls of your home.

Find these and dozens of other excellent animal garden sculptures at Design Toscano today.
