Ancient Greece and Rome abounded with tales of magical creatures. Although few people claimed to actually see them, a lot of folks probably believed that fauns, dryads, and other magical beings made their home in the wild woods and enchanting meadows of the Mediterranean region. Waterways were the supposed abode of nymphs and like mermaids, they took the form of beautiful young women. However, instead of sporting a scaled tail, they had long legs and looked just like humans.
Whether taking care of rivers and ponds or simply singing on moonlit nights, water nymphs were pretty harmless and a popular legend that lasted for centuries. Renaissance sculptors popularized them with many a statue, including four found in the Fontaine des Innocents in Paris. Built during the sixteenth century, it's the oldest monumental fountain in the City of Lights and the nymphs that it depicts represent the four major rivers in France. In proper water nymph fashion, each of them is equipped with a basin for keeping the waters of their rivers flowing downstream. Detailed replicas of each of these four nymphs can also be found in our Basil Street Collection and are presented in Roman arch wall niches so you can put these magical statues on display in your own, private bath.
Find the best garden statuary and garden fairies for the backyard and stunning Egyptian art for the interior of your home or business at Design Toscano. Order anything from the Basil Street Gallery (including the water nymphs mentioned above) from now until Thursday, September 13th, and get 20% off the regular price!

Office space might be dedicated to work but decorations shouldn't be limited to different colored memo papers. A photo or two can work wonders for making you feel more comfortable with your work space and various types of decor can be used for inspiration. If the employer allows it, statues of angels can work their own little decorating miracles when placed on a desk. Those harbingers of hope raise our spirits on dreary Mondays and other times of duress and can remind us to keep the faith. Get the right angel statues and they also add a unique, beautiful touch to the office.
Strength and determination are expressed on the fierce face and muscled appearance of Uriel the Archangel. Uriel points to challenges before raising his sword to vanquish all evil-doers. Get inspired by this heavenly superhero to overcome whatever challenges are thrown your way in the workplace.

The ancient Greeks and Romans had some great ideas when it came to decorating. They adorned their temples, gardens, and olive groves with fantastic, lifelike garden statuary. In fact, beautiful, realistic statues continue to look right at home in modern day gardens. They also gave us a variety of architectural ideas, the marble bust, and made use of pedestals to put their beautiful statuary on display.
The concept was a simple one and ends up accentuating anything placed on top of it. Basically, by placing the statue or other object on a decorative column or pedestal, it increases its height, and displays it in a way that can't be missed. The pedestal helps to showcase the importance of anything placed on it and works well for everything from a flower vase to prized Egyptian decorations.
Pedestals for every theme can be found in the Basil Street collection, including the French Neoclassical Griffin Pedestal. It's a fantastic piece all on its own but looks best when used for displaying plants next to entranceways or for adding a touch of green to the corners of rooms.
The Venetian Doges Solid Marble Column is so beautiful that it might outshine the marble bust or flowers placed on top of it!
Save 20% on these, other pedestals, and Egyptian art in the Basil Street Collection when ordering them by Thursday, September 13th!
