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.

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.

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.

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!

Implement the Exotic of the Orient in Your Garden

The Nara Temple: Asian Garden Pagoda SculptureWhen it comes to the Orient, an air of royalty and mystique seems to pervade any ambience that is associated with it.  So it is only natural that you would want to inject a little bit of that into an outdoor space.  You don’t need to renovate your entire outdoor space to create an Orient theme, you would be surprised at how easy it is to do so with the addition of one or two Asian garden statues.  Even better, you won’t need to pay the prices of the Orient when you shop with us.

A Pagoda structure is as symbolic of the Orient as anything else, and is in itself a serene symbol that exudes mystery.  When you add small Pagoda Asian garden sculptures into your outdoor space, you inject Eastern style in a way that nobody else will.  Our Nara Temple may be all you need to add Asian grace to your outdoor space, and is finished with a gorgeous bronze that will exude a regal touch as well.  At only two and a half feet high, it won’t overpower anything else in your outdoor space either.

There is perhaps no symbol more Asian than that of the dragon.  Dragon garden statues are an easy way to start an Asian theme in your outdoor space with one simple sculpture.  Whether you want to ward off nosy neighbours or preying pests, our Dragon of Falkenberg Castle Moat Lawn Statue is all you need to add a royal Asian touch to protect the garden space you have worked so hard on.
