Humorous Garden Statuary for an Asian-Themed Backyard

Tian Shan, the Asian Panda SculptureAsian-themed gardens aren't necessarily known for the comical side of life. Although they aren't exactly against laughter, the decor that is typically displayed usually lends to a general ambiance of peace and tranquility. Order is given to nature without overly disrupting natural lines and shapes. Statues of pagodas and Buddhas remind visitors that some aspects of life are timeless while bamboo fountains and animal garden sculptures of the Giant Panda are reminiscent of ancient, mystical Chinese mountains.

That said, humor can still be a part of any Asian-themed backyard. Laughter and smiles play just as much of a role in finding peace as meditating near a large Buddha statue. Sculptures of happy, smiling Buddhas demonstrate the importance of joy and fit into to any backyard decorating theme. For one of the cutest, funniest little Asian-themed statues, though, you can't go wrong with the ninja gnome sculpture. Yes, this little guy is both a ninja and a gnome and he's ready to use his magical stealth to protect your garden from squirrels, mischievous garden fairies, and other would be intruders. Although no true ninja needs any amount of back-up (they prefer to work alone), it won't hurt his ego to also deploy Basho the Sumo Wrestler.

Demonstrate the Sanctity of the Garden with Religious Outdoor Statues

Ascension: Grande Scale Christ SculptureThe backyard is a special place. Even if it is only used as a play space for the kids or an area for the family dog, the backyard is still your own private green space. You can use it as a place to cultivate plants for food and beauty, a place for hosting summer parties, swimming in the pool, or dining outdoors. However, perhaps most importantly, the garden can be used as a place for meditation and prayer. It can act as your very own sacred place and sanctuary from the stresses in life.

No matter what your belief system, you can also cultivate and show the sacred aspect of your garden with certain resin garden statues. Folks who meditate may feel inspired by the serene, peaceful look on the face of a large Buddha statue. The Grand Scale Christ Sculpture that shows Jesus ascending from the cross will remind Christians of hope and faith. The  Holy Family Sculpture will have the same effect with its classical beauty and peaceful appearance. The sanctity of the garden will also be demonstrated by the presence of beautiful, inspirational angel statues.

Get 20% off these classic religious-themed sculptures and all garden statuary from now until July 5th as part of the Design Toscano Fourth of July sale!

The Realism of Stealthy Animal Yard Statues

Prowling Spotted Jaguar StatueSculptures of animals are a natural fit for every garden. Even if you put statues of exotic animals on display, they can still seem right at home in any backyard. Put a tiger sculpture on display in an Asian-themed garden and it will blend in perfectly with your Buddha statues and pagodas. Show a mini-menagerie of African animals in the backyard and they look as if they belong out there with the rose bushes and tulips.

Unless there's a breakout at the local zoo,  you aren't going to see a jaguar in your backyard but even so, the Prowling Spotted Jaguar sculpture seems right at home as it sneaks through the grass. Realism in a sculpture doesn't just come from fine sculpted details and accurate colors. It also stems from the overall depiction of the statue and feelings that it generates. In the case of stealthy statues like the prowling jaguar, you couldn't be more realistic than showing a powerful feline in the process of stalking its prey. The same can be said for the beautiful, elegant Grande Black Panther Statue. These and other animal garden statues exclusive to Design Toscano are so realistic that it might take a week or two for your dogs to stop barking at them!

Buy these realistic sculptures and other fantastic decor from Design Toscano by Tuesday, May 29th and get 20% off the regular price!

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.

Last Day to Save Big on Shipping Costs

Giant Buddha Monument-Sized Garden SculptureShipping costs are an annoyance but quickly grow into a burden when buying several items or large objets d'art. While the extra dollars for shipping might not be too much with small items, hefty fees get added onto the costs of larger, heavier purchases. Sometimes, they are so much that you seriously begin to consider driving to the store and using your own car to carry that beautiful, antique replica chair back home. That may cut costs but for most people, it's not really an option because the store is too far away or the purchase just too big for your vehicle. When buying online, people don't usually complain too much about the shipping costs because they view them as necessary sacrifices to make in light of the low, online prices and ease in purchasing unique items.

Nevertheless, it's always better to pay less and this weekend you can do just that when making purchases of $75 or more from Design Toscano. It's the perfect time to buy big, heavy items like a large Buddha statue or Gothic tables so take advantage of this last day of free shipping from Design Toscano on $75 or more purchases and place a large order today!

The Perfect Garden Statue for Feeding Birds

Nature's Nurturer: St. Francis SculptureGardens frequently act as a temporary escape from more stressful aspects of life. Whether going there to read a tantalizing book, doing yoga, or landscaping, it can help you refresh, recuperate, and get ready to head back to your day job. For this reason, every backyard needs the right type of garden statuary to heighten the peaceful atmosphere. Buddha outdoor statues and a pagoda are perfect compliments for Asian-themed gardens and garden fairies make for an excellent addition to every backyard. If you also like to feed the birds, you can't go wrong with a statue of Saint Francis that can also act as a bird feeder.

Saint Francis of Assisi was known for his deep appreciation and love of the natural world. Hailing from an affluent Tuscan family, he cast off all of his worldly goods to get closer to God and nature. Tales tell of Saint Francis taming a savage wolf and feeding the birds from his hands. It only makes sense then to include a bird feeder with this detailed Saint Francis statue. Fill the statue's basket with bird seed and watch as sparrows, jays, and other avian backyard visitors come to your garden.

Buy the Saint Francis statue or order more than $75 worth of objets d'art from Design Toscano and get them delivered to your home for free from February 16th to February 18th!

Every Garden Needs Greenmen

Your backyard can look fantastic with the right types of garden statuary and sculptures. A The Spirit of Nottingham Woods: Greenman Tree Sculpturepagoda statue always looks nice in an Asian-themed garden as do Buddha outdoor statues.   However, no matter what your garden decorating theme is, it's always going to look better with a "greenman" or two. This doesn't refer to gnome statues or little men from Mars. Although that would provide an interesting touch to any backyard, the sculptures that work with any garden are depictions of faces that appear to come right out of the tree they are placed on.

Most show old, ancient faces nestled within gnarled branches and craggy tree trunks. They bring tree spirits and dryads to mind and indeed this is what they essentially depict. Whereas  statues of garden fairies still manage to stand out in the greenery, greenmen sculptures blend right in with the trees. Hang up one of these mystical sculptures on a shady tree trunk and it will look as if the tree has a face staring out at you and your guests. These sculptures aren't limited to trees either. Many also look striking when placed on a wall, especially when it's a garden wall covered in creeping ivy.

Get 20% off these fantastic garden sculptures and other decor until February 14th!
