The Quality, Beauty, and Longevity of Bronze Garden Statuary

The Tranquil Buddha Solid Bronze Garden StatueSculptures for the garden should be built to last. They need to stand up to the elements in every season while still showing off their detailed beauty and it's even better when they can be passed down from generation to generation as heirloom pieces. To be used as heirlooms, we aren't talking about statues that last just a few years or even a few decades but works of art that stand up to the elements for centuries. To last that long, they require a certain degree of care but given the durable nature of resin and bronze, it's not as if anyone would need to store them in an airtight vault.

Bronze in particular is known for its longevity and this is demonstrated in many a museum by exhibits of sculptures that were crafted hundreds or even thousands of years in the past. The ancient Greeks probably gave just as much importance to quality and beauty as they did durability when crafting bronze sculptures. That polished, gorgeous look of the bronze sculpture lives on in such modern day statuary as garden fairies and animal garden statues as well as pieces more classical in nature like a Buddha statue.

Enjoy 15% off all bronze items at Design Toscano when ordering on August 8th, the final day of our Best of the Bronze sale!

Some Animal Garden Sculptures Are Almost Too Realistic!

Shadowed Predator Black Panther StatueThe animal yard statue is standard backyard decor in every garden. Whether hosting a pantheon of Greek-themed sculptures or putting pagodas and pandas on display, animal statues add a lovely, natural touch. Just like the animals that make up Earth's wild kingdom, they come in all shapes and sizes and can remind us of Mother Nature's deadly beauty, her charm, or the cute side of life. Although animal sculptures can also be cast in noble bronze or represented in cold stone, they are at their most realistic when crafted with resin. The pliable nature of this sculpting medium allows for extremely detailed depictions of tigers, giraffes, and other exciting wildlife.

In fact, some of those resin animal statues look so realistic that neighbors may think that you are harboring an exotic menagerie or are really into taxidermy. For example, take Tank, the Armadillo Garden Statue. This sculpture of the small, naturally armored creature is as about as realistic as any statue can get without turning into the real thing. From the minute pattern on the ears to the faded lower parts of the carapace, no detail, no matter how minute, was left undone.

Save on the most realistic of animal garden statues at Design Toscano.

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.

A Garden Fairy Statue for the Middle of the Lawn

Every backyard needs garden statuary and each sculpture has its proper place. For example, greenmen look right at home on trees and garden walls, some detailed animal statues look better Rhiannon the Archer Garden Fairy Statuewhen they lurk in the grass beneath a shady oak, and gnomes compliment any flowerbed. The center of the yard also deserves a statue but only certain, special types of sculptures or decor merit being placed out front and center. Beautiful fountains and bronze sculptures come to mind and Greek-themed statues always command attention but some fairy statues also exude the type of drama and majesty that earns them a central spot in the yard.  

One such fairy statue is Rhiannon the Archer Garden Fairy Statue. As she gracefully releases an arrow into the sky, the focused determination on her face shows that Rhiannon is no flowerbed fairy. She's a powerful, beautiful warrior with details and demeanor that are simply breathtaking. Given the beauty and realism of this two-toned statue, it's hard to imagine showing her in any other place than the middle of the yard.

Find this exclusive, gorgeous garden sculpture and hundreds of detailed items for the garden at Design Toscano.

Garden Statuary also Includes Bridges

When most people think of statues or sculptures for the backyard, items like garden fairies or maybe a stone lion come to mind. As valid as these statues are for every garden, they only represent a fraction of the sculptures that can add personality to a backyard. While exquisite statues of fairies hide among the The Halfpence Cobblestone Bridgeflowerbeds, and scenery and animals immortalized in bronze liven up open spaces, bridges provide one of the nicer additions to a garden. 

Although a real, stone bridge that can be used by people for crossing streams and ponds would be ideal, it might also cost just as much as putting a new addition onto your home or business. Luckily, you don't have to construct an entire, life-sized bridge to add one to the backyard. The Halfpence Cobblestone Bridge is a beautiful sculpture that can be placed over a trickle of water or a miniature gully. It might be too small for you to use but would work just fine for fairies and gnomes. With its cobblestone texture, this miniature replica of an old English bridge adds quaint realism to any garden.

Find this garden sculpture, animal garden statues, and the perfect stone garden angel for your backyard at Design Toscano.

Dragon Garden Statues for the Asian-themed Backyard

The classic, exotic beauty of an Asian-themed garden is a sight to behold. Carefully tended gardens have been an important part of east-Asian cultures for more than two thousand years. Trees can be tended for generations in the hope of attaining an exquisite, sculptured appearance. Beautiful wooden or stone bridges cross small streams and Koi ponds. Miniature pagodas, Buddha outdoor statues, and other sculptures are common features of Asian gardens. Dragon sculptures in particular are especially Benevolent Asian Dragon Statueimportant for adding a touch of authenticity and mysticism.

These mythical winged beasts have played an important role in many east-Asian cultures and are typically viewed as harbingers of good luck. Few dragon sculptures embody this belief better than the Benevolent Asian Dragon Statue. Sculpted by Chinese master artist Gary Chang, this wonderfully ornate dragon has an open, smiling mouth and appears ready to proclaim your good fortune and prosperity.

Another dragon for the garden that is more mystical in character is the Asian Dragon with Power Orb Solid Bronze Garden Sculpture. This serpentine dragon of water and wind demonstrates its magical prowess by clutching a power orb. This beautiful solid bronze sculpture comes in three different sizes and is also piped for use as a fountain.

Asian Garden Statues and Decor Fit for an Emperor

Emperor Xuanzong's Fat Horse Asian StatueThe emperors of ancient China and Japan filled their homes with amazing works of art. During the Ming and Qing dynasties, beautifully lacquered furniture decorated the hallways of the Imperial palace in Beijing. Vases, paintings, and Buddha outdoor statues were scattered throughout the massive residences of Chinese and Japanese rulers. While much of the art during ancient Asia was limited to a small number of rulers and the very rich, most modern day people can fill their homes with similar looking pieces and thus live like the emperors of old.

Show the Emperor Xuansong's Fat Horse statue in your home and you will be displaying a replica of one of the most highly esteemed works of art from ancient China. Place "your horse" where it can be seen by all and tell guests that the original statue was made for an important Chinese emperor.

In ancient China, there were no telephones, computers, or intercom systems. Other means of communications had to be employed to let people know when the emperor was going to speak or when it was time for dinner. The easiest way of getting other people's attention was with a large, bronze gong. Although you don't have to use it to announce meals or speeches just as the emperors did, you can own very similar decor in the form of  the Sheng Kwong gong.

Asian decor fit for an emperor, Japanese garden statues, and all Asian garden sculptures are 20% off until Sunday, February 5th!
