Buddha Outdoor Statues and More on Sale at Design Toscano

Enlightened Buddha SculptureThe art of gardening is an important aspect of several Asian cultures. In some places, gardens are far more than a green patch for growing tomatoes, peppers, and tulips. They are also places where the trees are carefully sculpted to match the vision of the gardener, where paths can form intricate patterns, and where every rock and pebble has its proper place. Pay a visit to a Japanese garden and you will probably feel as if you are strolling through a work of art.
 
Asian garden statues are also an important part of Asian-themed gardens, a big role often being played by statues of the Buddha. Such peaceful sculptures lend character and tranquility to the yard, and are reminiscent of statues that decorate the grounds of temples and gardens in China, Japan, and Thailand. Not to mention, Buddha statues are by no means limited to an Asian-themed garden. The olive hues and classic details on The Enlightened Buddha Sculpture make this fine statue an excellent addition to any garden. It also works very well as interior decor and pairs well with the easy-going lavender and green hues of The Bodh Gaya Buddha Asian Statue. Gardens in need of a large Buddha statue can't go wrong with the Giant Buddha Monument-Sized Garden Sculpture.
 

Enjoy 20% off any of the beautiful garden statuary, exquisite interior decor, and unique sculptures in our collection until today, December 16th.

Peaceful Buddha Outdoor Statues

Giant Buddha Garden SculptureThe garden is a naturally peaceful place and few sculptures blend in with the tranquil surroundings better than Buddha statues. These classic Asian sculptures can be jolly and show laughing Buddhas, but most depict the Buddha in a meditative, blissful state of mind. With eyes closed in a relaxed, stress-free manner, and face with a slight, Mona Lisa smile, statues of the Buddha remind us to let go of the stress and focus on relaxation.

The Giant Buddha Garden Sculpture is a 48 inch tall seated Buddha that is crafted in the same form and appearance as Buddha statues in eastern Asia. Put this majestic Buddha in the backyard and you will be reminded of quiet temple gardens in Thailand and southern China. This large Buddha statue also looks just as magnificent when displayed in a quiet garden of a hotel or Asian-themed restaurant.

The Enlightened Buddha Sculpture is another impressive statue that will leave a peaceful impression on just about anyone who walks into your garden. The classic Buddha in this sculpture is shown standing on a Lotus flower, and has an eye-catching, burnished finish that reminds us of antique bronze Buddhas in Asian temples. if you would rather have a genuine bronze Buddha, we also have the stunning, solid bronze, Tranquil Buddha

Outdoor Garden Water Fountains for an Asian Garden

Cascading Bamboo Sculptural FountainGardens that feature Asian-themed decor can showcase a variety of peaceful, easy-going sculptures. Tranquil, meditative statues are often used because gardens in eastern Asia act as a peaceful place to contemplate, exercise, and relax. They also act as places where people can commune with and appreciate nature via carefully sculpted paths, trimmed trees, and beautiful plantings. In other words, the green space behind the home or place of business has the same purpose as gardens in Europe and North America. However, one of the biggest differences is related to decor.

Asian-themed decor tends to be humble and many statues are depictions of the Buddha or religious figures associated with Asian cultures. Fountains also play an important role but although the Medici Lion Four-Tier Fountain is nothing short of majestic, it doesn't work well with Asian decor. Save that fantastic fountain for a hotel lobby and buy other, more suitable fountains for the Asian-themed garden. These would be pieces like the Cascading Bamboo Sculptural Fountain and the beautiful Tranquil Springs Pagoda Garden Fountain. Both of these unique fountains add just the right touch of easy going, natural beauty to an Asian garden along with the soothing sounds of gently flowing water. Complement their beauty with the Bamboo Wellspring Pedestal Garden Fountain.

How to Choose Asian Garden Statues for Your Backyard

Far East Garden Fighter Ninja GnomeResin garden statues are wonderful, essential decor for many situations but it can be a challenge to pick out the right statue. We usually start by asking ourselves a few key questions like "Which type of statues will look best in the garden?", "How many statues should I buy?", and "Which decorating theme should I follow?". In addition, if you haven't done much shopping for garden statues, you might not even know where to look.

Whether just getting started with garden decor or looking for another addition to your personal collection of heirloom quality items, the best place to shop is Design Toscano. Take a brief look through our extensive collection and it won't take long to see that we have the best selection of unique, quality decor for the best prices. If you were thinking of putting Asian-themed decor in the backyard, browsing our Asian garden statue collection is the first easy step in finding the best Asian decorations for the garden. Here are two other questions to consider when looking for the best Asian statue:

  • Is this the first Asian statue for the garden?: If you already have Asian-themed garden decor but lack a dragon, the Asian Dragon of the Great Wall could be a suitable addition. Or, if this will be the first Asian-themed decor in your backyard, the Enlightened Buddha Sculpture will make an impression. 

 

  • How do you use your garden?: For example, if the backyard is dedicated to fun activities and parties, a Far East Garden Fighter Ninja Gnome could fit the bill. However, if the backyard is a quiet retreat or place for meditation, you would be better off with something along the lines of a solid bronze Tranquil Buddha Statue.

Really Nice!

The Enlightened Buddha Sculpture

 

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

This is an excellent buy. The statue arrived far earlier than promised. It was well packed and in great condition. For the modest price tag, I doubt you will find a better looking statue, especially one this size. The color is exactly as shown on the web site and it would look great in pretty much anyone's garden. I am really pleased with this.

I needed a large enough Buddha head for a wall space and had searched for a while. When I came across this Buddha, I was cautiously optimistic that it would meet my needs. When it arrived, I was beyond pleased. The perfect size for the space and a very nice looking, unique statue to boot.

Picking Out the Best Religious Outdoor Statues for Your Garden

Jesus Loves the Little ChildrenReligious-themed statues are a common, beautiful aspect of many gardens. Some of us opt for a classic stone garden angel while others prefer to decorate the garden with beautiful reminders of their faith. There are also people who opt for putting an impressive large Buddha statue in the garden and other Asian-themed religious statues. No matter what your preference is in terms of religious sculptures, you will probably find one or more perfect additions to the garden in our collection of religious resin garden statues. Here are a few tips for picking out the best religious sculpture for your backyard:

  • Pick out a statue that fits in with other garden decor: While most religious statues will easily compliment other garden statue decor, something along the lines of the Jesus Loves the Little Children Garden Sculpture will look much better in a backyard with cheerful gnomes, statues of children, and cute animal garden statues than more solemn sculptures.
  • Use angel statues for a garden with classic statuary: If you have a Victorian garden or one decorated with classic decor, there's a good chance that you already have a few fine angel sculptures. The beautiful Angel of Patience Sculpture will further highlight your fine collection of classic decor.
  • Try a Buddha statue for natural-themed gardens: Sculptures like the Jolly Hotei Buddha Statue and other Buddhas work very well with backyards that put the emphasis on natural decor.

Enjoy 20% off these sculptures and all of the religious statues in our collection when purchased from today until April 7th.

Buddha Outdoor Statues on Sale

Great Buddha Garden SanctuaryNot all religious statues are depictions of garden angels or sculptures related to Christianity. Several of the religious-themed sculptures in our collection are depictions of the Buddha. When one travels to eastern Asia, sculptures of sitting, standing, and even laughing Buddhas are a common sight in temples, gardens, and parks. The serene look on the Buddha's face compliments an already peaceful garden and seems to blend in with the natural surroundings. For this reason, statues of the Buddha are often placed in grottos and other beautiful natural places.

A Buddha statue can have the same peaceful effect on backyards no matter what their size. The beautiful two and a half foot tall The Bodh Gaya Buddha Asian Statue adds a peaceful touch to a backyard when placed by the back door, placed next to a pond, or displayed inside the home.

If the garden would look better with a large Buddha statue, our Giant Buddha Monument-Sized Garden Sculpture is a perfect fit. This large, four foot, seated Buddha is modeled after similar Buddha sculptures from Thailand and has the same, very peaceful appearance. For a Buddha with his very own grotto, put the classic Great Buddha Garden Sanctuary Sculpture in the backyard.

Enjoy 20% off these fine sculptures and all of the religious statues in our collection when purchased from today until April 7th.

Decorate the Interior of Home and Business with Asian Garden Sculptures

Goddess Guan Yin Seated on a Lotus StatueAsian-themed resin garden statues provide a lovely, peaceful touch to gardens but some look just as amazing when displayed inside the home, or when used as interior decor for a business. During the summer, the Giant Foo Dog of the Forbidden City Sculpture makes an impressive garden statement, especially when used as a sculpture near a back door or other entrance to the home. However, during the winter months, this Asian symbol of strength and protection acts as powerful interior decor. This statue might look best when placed near an entrance to a hallway or inside the den.

Statues of Chinese deities also make an impressive statement when displayed inside the home or inside an office. This classic statue of the Goddess Guan Yin Seated on a Lotus is painted with subtle colors and makes a beautiful addition to any room or place of business.

We also have small, desk top, Asian-themed statues in our collection including sculptural busts like the Sukhothai Buddha Asian Sculptural Bust and replicas of antique sculptures like the Emperor Xuanzong's Fat Horse Asian Statue. Both of these quality interior decor items are carefully modeled after original sculptures found in ancient temples and modern museums.

Enjoy 20% off these and other indoor statues at the Design Toscano site by the end of today, February 20th.

Dramatic and Beautiful Religious Garden Statues

Basking in God's Glory Little Girl StatueOne of the first main reasons for putting sculptures on display was for religious purposes. People sculpted figures that were representations of what they took to be sacred and those statues were cared for and shown in temples, grottos, and other sacred sites. In modern times, many of us continue this tradition by putting a statue of a stone garden angel or two in the backyard, or putting Christian-themed sculptures or a statue of a large Buddha on display. No matter which type of religious statue is used, we hope to showcase sculptures that inspire peace, goodwill, spirituality, and encourage us to be better people. For these reasons, the best religious statues tend to be ones that evoke emotions with a combination of drama and beauty.

The lovely Basking in God's Glory Little Girl Statue showcases those factors with sincere, simple beauty. With arms spread wide and a look of joy on her face, the young girl in this sculpture shows the type of happiness that many of us strive to feel. The little birds on her arms add a cute final touch to this wonderful sculpture.

The Ascension: Grande Scale Christ Sculpture is another dramatic statue that showcases Jesus Christ rising from the cross before ascending to heaven. Buy this statue for inspiration in a beautiful, Christian-themed garden.

Find these and other high quality religious statues at Design Toscano today.
