Complementary Decor for Buddha Outdoor Statues

Shen Kwong Metal GongThere's nothing like a Large Buddha Statue to lend the garden a peaceful, meditative look. However, even the best of Buddha statues look better when accompanied by beautiful Asian-themed decor. The Sheng Kwong Authentic Metal Gong can be used to augment a collection of Asian interior decor, or next to a favorite Buddha statue in the garden.

The soothing sounds of falling water also pair well with the tranquil appearance of Buddha sculptures, and one of the best outdoor water garden fountains for this purpose is the Cascading Bamboo Sculptural Fountain. Crafted to look just like the big bamboo plants commonly seen in Asian gardens, this fountain also adds natural music to the backyard with a quiet cascade of water. The blend of bamboo and peaceful water help augment the meditative atmosphere of a garden decorated with Buddha garden statuary.

Pagoda sculptures also work well to help complete an Asian garden scene. The Nara Temple: Asian Garden Pagoda Sculpture lends an elegant look to any yard, especially with its classy, verdigris bronze finish.

Beautiful Lighting for the Backyard with Asian Garden Statues

Sacred Pagoda LanternIt's time to take advantage of the warm weather and spend more time in the backyard. One of the nicest things about the warm weather of spring and summer is not having to go back into the house after the sun goes down. In fact, sometimes, the backyard is better during a warm summer night, especially when we enjoy it with our family and friends. Lighting is of course essential but why settle on average illumination when there are more interesting options available?

The Sacred Pagoda Lantern Illuminated Statue provides a garden with soft, peaceful lighting in the form of attractive Asian-themed decor. It also looks just as nice during the day, especially when placed next to a Koi pond or rock garden.

The Sacred Pagoda pairs well with the simple yet elegant and serene Japanese Pagoda Illuminated Lantern Statue. These illuminated statues look especially nice when one is placed next to a pond or off in a corner of the garden, and the other is displayed next to the pool or near the back door. Complete the Asian-themed look by adding candles to the "Avalokitesvara Buddha" Garden Statue.

Three Tips for Picking Out the Best Dragon Garden Statues

Asian Dragon of the Great WallDragon decor has been around a lot longer than a lot of folks realize. Some of the oldest wall decor in the world are depictions of dragon-like creatures from the ancient kingdom of Sumer. Dragons have also made their way into paintings, and are featured as statues in ancient China, Mayan Guatemala, and Medieval Europe. Of course, we can't forget about dragon decor in modern times either. Given that any evidence of real, live dragons has yet to be discovered, this decorating theme probably features the most enduring mythical creature on the planet.

If you have yet to pick out a dragon sculpture for your garden, these three tips will help:

 

  • Don't worry about the dragon sculpture fitting in with other decor: The reason you don't really need to worry about this is because since dragons are classic statuary, there is a dragon sculpture that will fit in with any decorating theme. There are even dragon statues that are simply adorable. "Blushing Babel, the Bashful Dragon" Statue is one such statue.

Buddha Outdoor Statues and More on Sale at Design Toscano

Enlightened Buddha SculptureThe art of gardening is an important aspect of several Asian cultures. In some places, gardens are far more than a green patch for growing tomatoes, peppers, and tulips. They are also places where the trees are carefully sculpted to match the vision of the gardener, where paths can form intricate patterns, and where every rock and pebble has its proper place. Pay a visit to a Japanese garden and you will probably feel as if you are strolling through a work of art.
 
Asian garden statues are also an important part of Asian-themed gardens, a big role often being played by statues of the Buddha. Such peaceful sculptures lend character and tranquility to the yard, and are reminiscent of statues that decorate the grounds of temples and gardens in China, Japan, and Thailand. Not to mention, Buddha statues are by no means limited to an Asian-themed garden. The olive hues and classic details on The Enlightened Buddha Sculpture make this fine statue an excellent addition to any garden. It also works very well as interior decor and pairs well with the easy-going lavender and green hues of The Bodh Gaya Buddha Asian Statue. Gardens in need of a large Buddha statue can't go wrong with the Giant Buddha Monument-Sized Garden Sculpture.
 

Enjoy 20% off any of the beautiful garden statuary, exquisite interior decor, and unique sculptures in our collection until today, December 16th.

The Power, Majesty, and Beauty of a Tiger Sculpture

Jungle Cat Leaping Bengal Tiger StatueFew animals seem as befitting of royal status as the big cats. Although the title of "king of the beasts" seems to be reserved for the African Lion, that distinction could also be legitimately claimed by the Tiger. While the African Lion has an impressive mane and rules the food chain of its savannah home, the Tiger is just as big or even bigger than African Lions, and is the undisputed top predator of its jungle home. Not to mention, while lions hunt their prey in a cooperative manner, Tigers take down animals as large as Asian Water Buffalo all on their own! 

That feline power is portrayed with our "Jungle Cat" Leaping Bengal Tiger Statue. This powerful animal yard statue shows the large, stocky head, outstretched muscled limbs, and long, sharp fangs that help put this beautiful cat at the top of the food chain. The striking orange, black, and white coat is also beautifully shown by this and all of our tiger statues.

While the Bengal Tiger rules in the Indian subcontinent, the Sumatran Tiger reigns in the dense jungles of southeastern Asia. The majesty and rarity of that splendid cat is captured by our elegant Power and Grace Sumatran Tiger. Put this and other tiger statues in the garden or place of business to showcase this cat's royal blend of power and beauty.

Outdoor Animal Statues for a Tranquil Garden

Proud Mallard Duck StatueThe backyard is meant to be a place of peace and many of us escape to that personal oasis after a long week of work to sit back with a cold drink, or take a dip in the pool. We can emphasize the tranquil nature of the backyard with certain types of resin garden statues, including sculptures of easy-going animals. Sheep are some of the most easy-going animals around, and the Life-Size Sheep Statue captures that peaceful essence with a detailed, tranquil look. This sculpture also mimics the live sheep that grazed the lawns of Victorian estates and old colonial homes.

Statues of ducks can also lend a peaceful look to the yard. The Proud Mallard Duck Statue shows the same colorful, fine details as a live drake Mallard. This animal yard statue makes a quaint statement near the entrance to the garden or when prominently displayed in the middle of the yard.

If the garden could use a more exotic yet equally peaceful animal statue, you might like Tian Shan, the Asian Panda Sculpture. Tian Shan shows the same striking, familiar black and white pattern and wide-eyed, cute face as the Giant Pandas that reside in the bamboo forests of central China.  

Buy $75 or more in fine decor from Design Toscano and pay nothing for regular shipping.

Peaceful Buddha Outdoor Statues

Giant Buddha Garden SculptureThe garden is a naturally peaceful place and few sculptures blend in with the tranquil surroundings better than Buddha statues. These classic Asian sculptures can be jolly and show laughing Buddhas, but most depict the Buddha in a meditative, blissful state of mind. With eyes closed in a relaxed, stress-free manner, and face with a slight, Mona Lisa smile, statues of the Buddha remind us to let go of the stress and focus on relaxation.

The Giant Buddha Garden Sculpture is a 48 inch tall seated Buddha that is crafted in the same form and appearance as Buddha statues in eastern Asia. Put this majestic Buddha in the backyard and you will be reminded of quiet temple gardens in Thailand and southern China. This large Buddha statue also looks just as magnificent when displayed in a quiet garden of a hotel or Asian-themed restaurant.

The Enlightened Buddha Sculpture is another impressive statue that will leave a peaceful impression on just about anyone who walks into your garden. The classic Buddha in this sculpture is shown standing on a Lotus flower, and has an eye-catching, burnished finish that reminds us of antique bronze Buddhas in Asian temples. if you would rather have a genuine bronze Buddha, we also have the stunning, solid bronze, Tranquil Buddha

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.
