Save on Big, Beautiful Buddha Outdoor Statues

Giant Buddha Monument-Sized Garden SculptureEastern and southern Asia hosts some of the most interesting cities and sites in the world. The ruins of Angkor Wat beckon with ancient walls and exquisite sculptures. In China, the Great Wall and the majestic features of The Forbidden City are experienced by millions of visitors. Glittering, golden temples that date back hundreds of years can be visited in Thailand and other countries and most of those temples feature a variety of Buddha statues. Some are small Buddha sculptures that were placed in grottos 400 years ago. Others feature a smiling, laughing jolly Buddha, and others are truly massive in size. However, despite the large size of a huge reclining or standing Buddha, those statues don't lose their very peaceful, humble appearance. If anything, they contribute to the peace and tranquility of their surroundings.

However, you don't need to commission the creation of a twenty foot tall statue for your garden to pay homage to the Buddha and fill the backyard with peace. Buy the Giant Buddha Monument-Sized Garden Sculpture and you can make a tranquil statement with a four foot tall, authentic Buddha statue. Complement and add to the peace with the three foot tall, standing Enlightened Buddha Sculpture. This sculpture is imported from southeast Asia and is an authentic, beautiful depiction of the Buddha standing on a lotus.

Buy these and other quality religious outdoor statues as well as anything on our site between today and July 5th and get a 20% discount as part of our 4th of July Sale!

Gargoyles in the Garden, Greenmen on the Trees, Oh My!

The Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyle Sculptures Set - LargeThere are many ways to decorate the garden. Plant enough flowers and prune the vegetation and the backyard becomes filled with natural decor. Put several stone garden angels and replicas of breathtaking classic garden statues on display and your green space will begin to resemble an authentic Victorian garden. Buddha statues and other Asian-themed sculptures can turn a generic backyard into a fantastic Chinese or Japanese themed garden, and the right set of animal garden statues will add a wild, natural touch to even the most urban of yards. As exciting as these garden decorating ideas sound, they still might not be very appealing to fans of Gothic decor. Fortunately, when you shop at Design Toscano for backyard statuary, there are plenty of sculptures that give the backyard a wonderfully Gothic, Druidic, or mystical touch.

Gargoyles can be used to flank the entranceway to the garden or back door to the home with absolutely regal results. With its open fanged mouth, glaring eyes, and crouched posture, the Argos Sentinel Statue is perfect for this purpose. The fun Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyle Sculptures, on the other hand, look more at home guarding a bed of flowers.

Another essential statue for a Gothic-themed garden is the greenman sculpture. These mystical statues have been used in Europe for hundreds of years and fantastic decor such as the Oak King Wall Sculpture continue to add a mysterious, magical touch touch to modern day gardens.

Find the most realistic Greenman statues, gargoyles, and Gothic garden statuary at Design Toscano.

Delightful Asian Garden Sculptures

The Laughing Maitreya Buddha StatueAsian garden statues are a welcome addition to most backyards. Whether the yard already has garden fairies or classic Greek statuary on display, Asian decor can provide a peaceful, enchanting touch that reminds us of the need for tranquility in our lives. While quiet and peaceful depictions of a meditating Buddha are a common and fitting aspect of Asian gardens, Asian-themed decor also includes dramatic pieces like ornate and beautifully detailed bronze dragons. Some Buddha statues are also meant to inspire laughter and add a light-hearted touch to the garden.

One such easy-going Buddha sculpture is The Laughing Maitreya Buddha Statue. This jolly Buddha is all smiles as he contently sits and waits to hand out candy to lucky children. Rub his belly for good fortune and let his laughing face wash away your worries.

Another delightful, laughing statue comes in the form of a sculpture of Shou Xin Gong, the Chinese God of Longevity.

Bring Peace to the Backyard with a Garden Angel Statue

The backyard can be more than a place for growing vegetables and going for a swim. It can also act as your Guardian Angel of Peace Statueown private sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of life. That bit of greenspace can work like a charm for dealing with stressful situations and rejuvenation of the mind. While natural features like the chirping of birds and flower patches are important, the peaceful, healing aspects of the garden are heightened by certain types of decor.

Add tranquility to the garden with the lovely Guardian Angel of Peace Statue. Nearly four feet in height, this beautiful, classic angel sculpture watches over your garden with small, outstretched wings and a childlike, endearing appearance.

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.

Large Buddha Statue or Small Buddha Statue?

Giant Buddha Monument-Sized Garden SculptureSome of the largest statues in the world are sculptures of the Buddha. Carved out of mountainsides, shaped from natural rock formations, or painstakingly sculpted from different stones that are then put together, huge Buddha statues never fail to leave most people in awe. This was one of the main reasons for making them so large in the first place but it's not the only size shown by the Buddha statue. Smaller statues are actually the norm and this is demonstrated by many Buddhist temples in Asia. Although the largest statue is the centerpiece of the temple, there is typically a number of other, smaller sculptures in various shrines here and there on the temple grounds. The different sizes of the statues make it easier to be reminded of the Buddha and the importance of striving for humility.

The size of the Buddha statue for your garden depends on how you want to display it. If it's going to be the most important of all your resin garden statues, then a large Buddha sculpture is probably the best one to get because such an item tends to take center stage. If you would rather have the Buddha sculpture act as a simple highlight to an Asian-themed garden that also features a large tiger sculpture and other decor, then you probably need medium or small Buddha statues.
