Outdoor Garden Water Fountains for an Asian Garden

Cascading Bamboo Sculptural FountainGardens that feature Asian-themed decor can showcase a variety of peaceful, easy-going sculptures. Tranquil, meditative statues are often used because gardens in eastern Asia act as a peaceful place to contemplate, exercise, and relax. They also act as places where people can commune with and appreciate nature via carefully sculpted paths, trimmed trees, and beautiful plantings. In other words, the green space behind the home or place of business has the same purpose as gardens in Europe and North America. However, one of the biggest differences is related to decor.

Asian-themed decor tends to be humble and many statues are depictions of the Buddha or religious figures associated with Asian cultures. Fountains also play an important role but although the Medici Lion Four-Tier Fountain is nothing short of majestic, it doesn't work well with Asian decor. Save that fantastic fountain for a hotel lobby and buy other, more suitable fountains for the Asian-themed garden. These would be pieces like the Cascading Bamboo Sculptural Fountain and the beautiful Tranquil Springs Pagoda Garden Fountain. Both of these unique fountains add just the right touch of easy going, natural beauty to an Asian garden along with the soothing sounds of gently flowing water. Complement their beauty with the Bamboo Wellspring Pedestal Garden Fountain.

How to Choose Asian Garden Statues for Your Backyard

Far East Garden Fighter Ninja GnomeResin garden statues are wonderful, essential decor for many situations but it can be a challenge to pick out the right statue. We usually start by asking ourselves a few key questions like "Which type of statues will look best in the garden?", "How many statues should I buy?", and "Which decorating theme should I follow?". In addition, if you haven't done much shopping for garden statues, you might not even know where to look.

Whether just getting started with garden decor or looking for another addition to your personal collection of heirloom quality items, the best place to shop is Design Toscano. Take a brief look through our extensive collection and it won't take long to see that we have the best selection of unique, quality decor for the best prices. If you were thinking of putting Asian-themed decor in the backyard, browsing our Asian garden statue collection is the first easy step in finding the best Asian decorations for the garden. Here are two other questions to consider when looking for the best Asian statue:

  • Is this the first Asian statue for the garden?: If you already have Asian-themed garden decor but lack a dragon, the Asian Dragon of the Great Wall could be a suitable addition. Or, if this will be the first Asian-themed decor in your backyard, the Enlightened Buddha Sculpture will make an impression. 

 

  • How do you use your garden?: For example, if the backyard is dedicated to fun activities and parties, a Far East Garden Fighter Ninja Gnome could fit the bill. However, if the backyard is a quiet retreat or place for meditation, you would be better off with something along the lines of a solid bronze Tranquil Buddha Statue.

Picking Out the Best Religious Outdoor Statues for Your Garden

Jesus Loves the Little ChildrenReligious-themed statues are a common, beautiful aspect of many gardens. Some of us opt for a classic stone garden angel while others prefer to decorate the garden with beautiful reminders of their faith. There are also people who opt for putting an impressive large Buddha statue in the garden and other Asian-themed religious statues. No matter what your preference is in terms of religious sculptures, you will probably find one or more perfect additions to the garden in our collection of religious resin garden statues. Here are a few tips for picking out the best religious sculpture for your backyard:

  • Pick out a statue that fits in with other garden decor: While most religious statues will easily compliment other garden statue decor, something along the lines of the Jesus Loves the Little Children Garden Sculpture will look much better in a backyard with cheerful gnomes, statues of children, and cute animal garden statues than more solemn sculptures.
  • Use angel statues for a garden with classic statuary: If you have a Victorian garden or one decorated with classic decor, there's a good chance that you already have a few fine angel sculptures. The beautiful Angel of Patience Sculpture will further highlight your fine collection of classic decor.
  • Try a Buddha statue for natural-themed gardens: Sculptures like the Jolly Hotei Buddha Statue and other Buddhas work very well with backyards that put the emphasis on natural decor.

Enjoy 20% off these sculptures and all of the religious statues in our collection when purchased from today until April 7th.

Buddha Outdoor Statues on Sale

Great Buddha Garden SanctuaryNot all religious statues are depictions of garden angels or sculptures related to Christianity. Several of the religious-themed sculptures in our collection are depictions of the Buddha. When one travels to eastern Asia, sculptures of sitting, standing, and even laughing Buddhas are a common sight in temples, gardens, and parks. The serene look on the Buddha's face compliments an already peaceful garden and seems to blend in with the natural surroundings. For this reason, statues of the Buddha are often placed in grottos and other beautiful natural places.

A Buddha statue can have the same peaceful effect on backyards no matter what their size. The beautiful two and a half foot tall The Bodh Gaya Buddha Asian Statue adds a peaceful touch to a backyard when placed by the back door, placed next to a pond, or displayed inside the home.

If the garden would look better with a large Buddha statue, our Giant Buddha Monument-Sized Garden Sculpture is a perfect fit. This large, four foot, seated Buddha is modeled after similar Buddha sculptures from Thailand and has the same, very peaceful appearance. For a Buddha with his very own grotto, put the classic Great Buddha Garden Sanctuary Sculpture in the backyard.

Enjoy 20% off these fine sculptures and all of the religious statues in our collection when purchased from today until April 7th.

Decorate the Interior of Home and Business with Asian Garden Sculptures

Goddess Guan Yin Seated on a Lotus StatueAsian-themed resin garden statues provide a lovely, peaceful touch to gardens but some look just as amazing when displayed inside the home, or when used as interior decor for a business. During the summer, the Giant Foo Dog of the Forbidden City Sculpture makes an impressive garden statement, especially when used as a sculpture near a back door or other entrance to the home. However, during the winter months, this Asian symbol of strength and protection acts as powerful interior decor. This statue might look best when placed near an entrance to a hallway or inside the den.

Statues of Chinese deities also make an impressive statement when displayed inside the home or inside an office. This classic statue of the Goddess Guan Yin Seated on a Lotus is painted with subtle colors and makes a beautiful addition to any room or place of business.

We also have small, desk top, Asian-themed statues in our collection including sculptural busts like the Sukhothai Buddha Asian Sculptural Bust and replicas of antique sculptures like the Emperor Xuanzong's Fat Horse Asian Statue. Both of these quality interior decor items are carefully modeled after original sculptures found in ancient temples and modern museums.

Dragon and Gargoyle Bronze Garden Sculptures

Winged Gargoyle of Naples Solid Bronze Garden Statue - SmallSome folks might stick to garden gnomes and an angel statue or two when it comes to backyard decor but some of us would rather decorate the yard with gargoyle figurines and majestic sculptures of dragons. Neither decorating theme is better than the other because it all comes down to a matter of personal preference. Gnomes tend to be cute while gargoyles are by nature, somewhat more intimidating. However, they are also wonderful, classic decor. Since gargoyles can be found on the ramparts of castles and some of the world's most majestic Gothic cathedrals, you could also say that those winged monsters are sort of like royalty when it comes to garden decor.

Given their special status, it's only logical that we offer dragon and gargoyle sculptures in bronze. This classic, beautiful metal alloy was a favored sculpting medium for the ancient Greeks and continues to be used by professional artists to this day. The color, texture, and durability of bronze can help turn a good quality statue into a masterpiece. Both of our bronze dragon and gargoyle sculptures fall into this category and make a prize addition to distinguished gardens of any home and business. The Asian Dragon with Power Orb is a fantastic, enchanting statue that can also be used as a fountain while the Winged Gargoyle of Naples makes for an exceptional welcoming sculpture for the backyard.

Find these and other fine bronze sculptures at Design Toscano.

Nice Details

Wallie from Sacramento - CA - USA reviewed the Benevolent Asian Dragon Statue

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

The dragon was better than expected and highly detailed however there appears to be a flaw with the mold when cast. The teeth and tongue on one side are flawed. The teeth on the "good side" come to a blunted point as expected but the teeth on the "bad side" are flattened and double in width. The tongue on the "bad side" is flawed and looks like material that was not removed after removing from the mold. It is likely the same with the teeth as extra material was left. I have included photos so you can see what I mean. My wife is painting the dragon so the colors are different than the way the dragon was shipped. Other than the flaws in the mouth we are pleased with our purchase although it would have been terrific to have a "perfect" dragon. It was look fabulous in our garden.
