Backyards are Spookier with Greenmen

Poison Oak: Greenman Tree SculptureEven if you have never seen what greenman decor looks like, it's easy to surmise that it might be spooky. Although it sounds like another name for Martian-themed decor, greenman items are very much connected to Earth. These nature-themed decorations literally give faces to trees and the result is magical, mysterious, and somewhat frightening. Adding personality to trees with woody faces and piercing eyes, these sculptures will provide a unique, naturally spooky touch to the yard.

Most trees are innocent and docile but when the big craggy oak in the backyard decides to come awake and show its true face, trick-or-treaters might skip your house during their quest for candy. The Spirit of Nottingham Woods greenman can be especially frightening on dark, October nights. With perceptive, woody eyes, he peers out at all passersby and dares Halloween party guests to approach his twiggy abode.

While the Nottingham Greenman can look frightening or intriguing depending on the lighting, there's no doubting the evil designs of the Poison Oak Greenman Tree Sculpture. This leering sculpture literally shows his teeth in a malicious grin that taunts guests to "Come closer for a better look!".

Save 20% on these and other Halloween decor from now until September 24th!

Don't forget to participate in our Pin-spiration contest by creating your own Halloween pinboard with scary garden statuary and the best in gargoyle figurines. The winner gets $200 off a Bigfoot statue or anything else at Design Toscano.

Did You Get a Bigfoot Statue for Halloween Yet?

Bigfoot the Giant Life-size Yeti StatueThe best Halloween displays in town aren't necessarily the ones with scary sounds piped into a front yard that has been transformed into a spooky cemetery. While those do look great, they have been done before and who knows how many houses will follow that theme in 2012. If your place is going to stand out from the rest of the Halloween decorating crowd, you need to let your creative juices lead you to places where decorating ideas have no boundaries. Let your mind wander outside the box and you will come up with some amazing decorating themes.

For example, while zombies crawl out of your flower garden, how about putting up a Bigfoot crossing sign, or something like, "Beware of the Great North American Ape". Of course you should also combine those curious warnings with Bigfoot decor and that's just one of the ways we can help. You can start out by putting Bigfoot, the Bashful Yeti Tree Sculpture behind a tree in the yard. Party guests and trick-or-treaters will do a double-take when they spot this highly detailed, realistic Bigfoot sculpture peering at them from the shadows! Follow that up with the huge, realistic Life-sized Yeti Sculpture in the garden and they might run for the door!

Searching for Sasquatch and Finding a Bigfoot Statue

Bigfoot the Giant Life-size Yeti StatueSasquatch or Bigfoot is a fantastic legend. Unlike tiny fairies and monsters that can hide out in deep, dark lakes, Bigfoot is a huge, towering creature that wanders through the wild woodlands of North America. It leaves massive footprints wherever it walks, has been glimpsed by hundreds of people on the darkest of nights, and even reveals itself with howls that send shivers up the spines of even the most stalwart of woodsmen. The absence of definitive proof in the face of numerous sightings and evidence makes this creature a true enigma. In fact, the legend of Bigfoot is so enduring that believers have even formed Bigfoot study and research groups.

Armed with the latest in infrared technology and night vision goggles, they head out into the night in the wildest of places to howl like Bigfoot and search for an encounter. Some say they get a response while others come up with nothing. Whether Sasquatch roams the wilds of America or not, a much easier way to find it is by ordering a Big Foot Garden Statue. Although we won't deny or state that we got a Sasquatch to pose for the sculpture, we will say that it's the most realistic Bigfoot animal yard statue available.

The Realism of Our Bigfoot Statue

Bigfoot, the Garden Yeti StatueNorth America has plenty of legends but the one that has captivated Americans and Canadians the most is that of Bigfoot. Also known as Sasquatch and the much less mysterious "skunk ape", Bigfoot is an enigma. The huge, hairy creatures are mentioned in many Native American legends and thousands of people have reported sightings of the bipedal giant from the swamps of Florida to the lush forests of southern Alaska. Although Sasquatch has yet to receive scientific documentation and be fully recognized as an actual animal, hundreds of the stories are compelling and at least one bit of filmed footage is believed to be the real deal by more than one expert.

However, given that Bigfoot is still officially considered to be a creature that only exists in legend and in the minds of people who also believe in the existence of garden fairies, more than one person has wondered how we can claim that our sculptures of Bigfoot are realistic. Well, if you believe in the existence of Bigfoot, you could say that our Sasquatch statues are realistic because they are based on sightings of the creature. If you think that the North American Yeti is just a figment of wild imaginations, you could still say that our animal yard statue of the creature is realistic because we provide a detailed depiction of what it is supposed to look like. Whether it exists or not, our statues of Bigfoot certainly help bring it to life!

Show Support for Sasquatch with a Big Foot Garden Statue

Bigfoot, the Bashful Yeti Tree SculptureHe's huge, he's hairy, and he's a lot more shy than anyone ever imagined. Even though Bigfoot (also known as Sasquatch or the Great North American Ape) is big and strong enough to pulverize your prize bronze garden sculptures, the creature would never dream of carrying out such a senseless act of violence. No, despite its strength, Bigfoot keeps to itself and rarely enters into anyone's yard. 

The gentle beast prefers to venture outside in the dark of the night and stays hidden from prying eyes during the day. Although people who have a run-in with Sasquatch are typically terrified, since Bigfoot runs away from anyone it encounters, it's obvious that they have nothing to fear. Native American tribes felt the same way about the monstrous ape and just stayed away from the deep canyons and other wild corners of America haunted by this legendary creature.

Despite all of the Bigfoot sightings, pre-Columbian legends, and controversial footage of the creature filmed in the wilds of northern California, Sasquatch is still awaiting acceptance by the scientific community. Whether you believe that Bigfoot is real or not, you can help keep the legend alive with the most detailed, realistic Bigfoot sculptures in existence. Who knows, maybe one day you will see two Sasquatch "statues" in the backyard and realize that the legend is real because you only bought one!

Find a unique, highly detailed Bigfoot statue and other exquisite garden statuary from Design Toscano.

What Resin Garden Statues can do for a Business

Garden statuary, despite its name, isn't just for that private green space behind the house. The beauty Egyptian Revival Winged Great Sphinx Statueof some stone angels, depictions of animals, and other works of art make them just as suitable inside a home as they are beneath the dappled shade of a backyard Oak. Nor do they need to stay within the confines of a home. Buy the right sort of statues for a business and they will probably pay for themselves in a month.

The secret about detailed sculptures of dinosaurs, Bigfoot, or beautiful replicas of more classical statues is that they help with marketing. Whether the business happens to be a restaurant, hotel, or hardware store, they get people's attention and bring them into the store. By adding character to any establishment, they make every visit to the business a memorable one and thus help with branding. 

Flank the front doors of a hotel or restaurant with two Egyptian Revival Winged Great Sphinx Statues and customers will know they are walking into someplace special.

Put furniture like the The Salentino Crescent Garden Bench into the lobby along with a beautiful tiger sculpture and guests will know that they chose the right place to stay.

Beautify your business and improve its image with fantastic sculptures for outside from Design Toscano.
