Beautiful Bronze Asian Garden Statues

The Asian-themed garden often plays host to bamboo (both living and sculpted forms), Koi ponds, and Buddha outdoor statues. There might also be a stunning Panda animal yard statue or even a Ninja Gnome but the most spectacular of Asian gardens usually showcase a bronze sculpture or two. Asian-themed sculptures tend to look more impressive and authentic when depicted in bronze because sculptures crafted from that ancient medium have adorned Chinese gardens for more than two thousand years.

Asian Dragon with Power Orb Solid Bronze Garden SculptureThe solid bronze Asian Dragon with Power Orb is one such spectacular sculpture. This writhing Asian water dragon is sculpted in the same style as classic dragons that adorn Chinese temples. The power orb is a modern touch but gives this beautiful bronze sculpture a magical, captivating appearance. Although it can be shown on its own, this fantastic, piped bronze sculpture is at its best when placed in a pond or fountain.

The Tranquil Buddha Statue is another stunning Asian-themed bronze sculpture. Carefully crafted in the traditional lost wax method, this Buddha statue is beautifully detailed and resembles many Buddha sculptures that grace temple grounds in Thailand and China. The peaceful, contented look on the face of this Buddha is timeless and inspirational.

Save on these fantastic bronze sculptures and hundreds of other statues for the backyard and the interior of your home and business at Design Toscano.

Put Natural Elegance on Display with Crane Animal Garden Statues

Cranes are among the most noble of bird species. Stately and long-lived, these regal birds are also known for their fidelity and dancing courtship displays. Although cranes are found on many parts of the globe, the Colossal Cranes Bronze Garden Sculptures - Set of Twomajority of species occur in eastern Asia. This is made apparent by their frequent depictions in Chinese and Japanese art. The innate elegance of Red-crowned, Japanese, and Sarus Cranes turns them into naturally good subjects for works of art and just as these birds are encountered in the wild, they are typically painted and sculpted in pairs.

The elegance and beauty of the crane has earned it a venerated spot in Asian gardens for hundreds of years. Since crane species are generally too wild to visit even the most beautiful of enclosed gardens, artists began to create bronze sculptures and stone statues of these birds to be used as garden decor. That tradition continues to this day and is wonderfully represented by our bronze crane statues. Available in three sizes, these verdigris patina bronze garden sculptures add a touch of classic elegance to any backyard.

To make an even bigger impression with beautiful bronze crane statues, get the Colossal Cranes Bronze Garden Sculpture. Water is piped through the beaks of both of these stately bronze statues to turn them into elegant animal fountains.

Order crane statues, resin garden statues, garden fairies, and anything else on our site by Wednesday, November 28th and get 20% off the regular price!

The Enchanting Beauty of Mermaid Garden Statuary and Decor

Daydreaming Mermaid of Langeline Cove StatueThe sea is a mysterious realm. When you stand on the beach and gaze out over the endless water, it seems like anything could be found beneath the waves. Throughout the ages, those who set sail on the oceans have experienced many strange phenomena and created amazing tales in an attempt to come up with explanations.

One such recurring tale involves beautiful creatures that are part woman, part fish. Known as mermaids, sirens, kelpies, as well as by other names, they emerge from the deep to sing to lonely sailors on moonlit nights. Those unfortunate enough to listen and pay heed to their deadly songs willingly leave the safety of the boat to sink and drown in the deeps. However, not all mermaids are said to be so dangerous. Some live a simple life beneath the waves and venture out onto rocks to watch the ships pass by. These latter mermaids are the ones you want in your garden and we make that happen with the classic Daydreaming Mermaid of Langline Cove statue. This beautiful piece will look just as mesmerizing as a real mermaid as she sits next to your pool or koi pond.

Inside the home, you can continue to show the mysterious beauty of mermaids with the Entwined Mermaids Sculptural Floor Lamp. Over six feet tall, this ornate lamp with faux verdigris bronze finish will be an enchanting work of art for any home.

Beautiful Bronze Garden Fairies

Mushroom Fairy Solid Bronze Garden SculptureFor centuries, many cultures believed that fairies made their homes in wild places like ancient woodlands and windy moors as well as in more familiar environments such as backyard gardens. Food was even left out for the little magical creatures to appease them and hopefully gain their aid in helping the garden grow. In modern times, most people have stopped believing in pixies and their kind but that doesn't stop us from decorating our backyards with depictions of those enchanting creatures.

One of the best ways to pay them homage is by depicting them with bronze statuary. The beautiful  solid bronze sculpture of the Mushroom Fairy  is a fine piece that reminds us of the enduring beauty of fairies with a gorgeous verdigris and bronze patina. 

The similarly colored solid bronze Dancing Fairy statue is an enchanting expression of elegance. Her dress flowing with movement, this fairy looks ready to spring to life. Maybe she will on nights when the full moon reigns.

The gorgeous little Bird Fairy is another bronze piece destined to enchant for ages. Like all of our fairy statues, the posture and gentle look on the face of this fairy impart a realism that has to be seen to be believed.

Classic Animal Garden Statues

Majestic Horse SculptureSculptures of animals have been used in gardens for centuries. The more realistic and detailed the statue, the better it captures the natural artistic beauty of its wild subject. Horses have long been one of the more popular subjects for animal statues. Anyone who has watched a horse race or seen the power and grace of a wild Mustang can easily understand why artists might have a tough time not making equine sculptures.

Our Majestic Horse Sculpture couldn't be more appropriately named. This resin statue with a beautiful bronze patina is an heirloom piece destined to be marveled over by generations to come. Its flowing mane and tail, and detailed muscled appearance make this stunning grand scale sculpture the closest thing to having a real, live horse prancing around the garden.

The smaller yet more dramatic Majestic Mustang Horse Sculpture displays the power and fierce beauty of a wild, free-roaming Mustang. He rears up on his hind legs in defiance of ever being captured and tamed.

Dogs have also been a common subject for animal garden sculptures. Faithful, loving, and loyal to the end, dogs can demonstrate a range of admirable characteristics. The heartwarming Man's Best Friend animal yard statue demonstrates the things we love about canines by eagerly awaiting the arrival of its master with a basket of flowers and eager, loving eyes.

Find these and dozens of other classic animal sculptures at Design Toscano today.

Where to Display Garden Fairies During the Fall Months

The Daydream Fairy SculptureFall is here across much of North America. Evenings are cooler in many areas and the foliage will be changing in a matter of weeks. Unlike the Spring months, most people are paying less attention to planting and weeding the garden and doing more to get it ready for Winter. Some people start to take their garden statuary down and any decorations left outside are geared towards Halloween.

Despite the lack of bright flowers, statuary still helps backyards look fantastic during the Fall months. In fact, the decreased amount of vegetation helps statues stand out even better than other times of the year and can give the backyard a stark, enchanted look. Statues of fairies look even more magical when placed near tree trunks or next to a Koi pond.

The incredible realism of the Daydream Fairy Sculpture will be much more apparent when displayed on a bed of fallen red, green, and orange Maple leaves. The lovely tones of the Bird Fairy solid bronze statue will complement the earthy hues of an Autumn backyard while the stunning beauty of Rhiannon the Archer Fairy Statue looks best when displayed in the center of the yard.

The place for the best in fairy statues, quality decor, and unique decorations is Design Toscano.

What Does a Large Buddha Statue Say About Your Backyard?

Giant Buddha Monument-Sized Garden SculptureThe garden statuary used to decorate the green space behind your house says as much about you as it does the yard. Put up a few classic Greek garden statues and you might have an appreciation for ancient cultures and art that lasts for ages. It might also represent pride in your Greek or other Mediterranean heritage and a tendency to appreciate realistic art forms.

A Buddha statue could show that you enjoy the neat appearance of an Asian-themed garden. This is almost certainly the case if the sculpture is flanked by bronze cranes or an animal yard statue of a panda. If the Buddha sculpture shares the backyard scene with statues of dragons and other legendary creatures, it might show that you have an imagination that appreciates fantasy novels and are intrigued by the many mysteries of life, or it could indicate that you are a practicing Buddhist.

However, if a look around the garden also reveals items as varied as garden fairies, animal statues, and water fountains, it could just be that you love to decorate your backyard with beautiful statues. No matter what the reason is for including a Buddha statue in the garden, both jolly and meditative depictions of the Buddha are a fantastic addition to any yard.

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.
