The Abominable Big Foot Garden Statue

Abominable Snowman YetiLegends of large, unknown hominids are told in many parts of the world. Although most people have heard about Sasquatch, the "Grassman" is also rumored to hide out in the oak forests of Ohio, many people claim to have seen the Skunk Ape in the dark swamps of the southern states, and the Yowie haunts the Blue Mountains of Australia. The Himalayan mountains are also rumored to be the home of another Bigfoot-like creature, this one with white fur. That creature is known as the Yeti and although definitive photos are lacking, many Nepalese villagers claim to have seen its footprints in the snows of the high mountains.

The Yeti has also been referred to as the Abominable Snowman. Although we don't think there is anything abominable about our Abominable Snowman Yeti Statue, this unique sculpture is certain to lend a unique look to the yard. The piercing, questioning eyes, muscled appearance, and fine details lend a high degree of realism to this sculpture. In fact, don't be surprised if it takes a while for the family dog to get used to it. It might also take a while for neighbors and guests to become accustomed to seeing a Yeti walk across the backyard, especially on nights with a full moon!

Stunning New Bronze Garden Statuary

Fishing Heron in ReedsBronze statues have been a standard aspect of classic gardens for literally thousands of years. Bronze as a sculpting medium is still used to this day because it results in lovely statues that can easily last for centuries. We love bronze sculptures and that's why we have added several new bronze garden statues to our collection. These new bronze additions include statues of animals, beautiful piped pieces, and a statue or two with children.

One of the new bronze heron statues to make it into our collection is the Fishing Heron in Reeds Cast Bronze Garden Statue. Made in the traditional lost wax method, this beautiful bronze heron is an excellent addition to a pond and is piped to spout water from its bill. It is also perched on a bronze log with reeds for additional realism. This sculpture makes a nice pair with the Standing Heron in Reeds Cast Bronze Garden Statue.

The Steep Climbing Ducks Cast Bronze Garden Statue is another beautiful item that can be piped for a pond. This stunning colored bronze will be especially admired by duck hunters and anyone with an appreciation for the outdoors.

Our new Rodeo Dreams: Cowgirl with Horse Cast Bronze Garden Statue Set will also be enjoyed by those who love the outdoors, and going on trail rides through the high Rockies.

New Illuminated Décor at Design Toscano

Elegant Slumber Art Deco Illuminated SculptureIllumination is an essential part of every home and business. However, that doesn't mean that lighting has to be restricted to efficient bulbs and a few ordinary lamps. Lighting can be as creative as you like and the New Arrivals section on our site demonstrates this with several elegant items. One such classy piece is the Elegant Slumber Art Deco Illuminated Sculpture. The soft, romantic lighting on this sculpture blends in with the floral details and lovely figure of a sleeping maiden. This beautiful sculpture is a perfect addition to a bed stead, or quiet reading room.

New illuminated art also takes form with the Majestic Maiden Art Deco Illuminated Sculpture. This striking decor pays homage to the art decor era with symmetry, elegance, and praise for the female form. Soft lighting is provided by the cape worn by the lovely figure in this sculpture.

Illumination can also come in the form of exquisite candlesticks. The Malbark Castle Gothic Floor Candelabra acts as the perfect place to host a favorite set of Gothic candles. This striking new decor would look right at home in the Teutonic castle it is named after. Unlike candelabras that need to be hung from the ceiling, this beautiful Gothic-themed item can be easily set up and placed anywhere in the home.

Big Animal Garden Statues for a Big Backyard

Mombasa, the Graden Giraffe StatueFolks who are fortunate to have their own backyard are lucky indeed. They can reserve part of that green space for vegetables and flowering plants, have the opportunity to install a pond or beautiful outdoor garden water fountains, and can relax by the pool on hot summer days. However, folks with a huge backyard are even more fortunate because they might have sufficient space for a soccer field, volleyball court, and plenty of room for a big display of garden statuary.

Greek garden statues can lend a classic look to one corner of the big backyard, the opposite corner can host a grove of trees decorated with greenmen and a Bigfoot statue, and garden fairies can lend an enchanted touch to the flowerbeds. Although grand-scale animal statues will work in any yard, they look most at home in the biggest of backyards.

Mombasa, the Garden Giraffe Statue punctuates the yard with an exciting, naturally artistic look. The kids will love it and pretend that they are on an African safari. Once the safari is over, kids of all ages can relax in the "paws" of the amazing "Sitting Pretty" Oversized Brown Bear Statue with Paw Seat. They will also love the Jurassic-Sized Triceratops Dinosaur Statue.

Sculptures for Outside that Lend the Garden a Touch of Zen

Zen Garden Gnome StatueEvery garden could use bit of Zen. We are talking about decor that highlights the naturally peaceful demeanor of the backyard, and sculptures that match the soft, soothing whispering of summer trees. Such statues remind us that our backyards are sanctuaries from the stress of everyday life, and that the simple things are often, the best things.

Peaceful sculptures come in a variety of shapes and forms. Gnomes play their part, especially the "Zen Garden Gnome" Statue. This classic gnome has let go to the point of providing a home for a bluebird. Put this unique gnome statue near a favorite bench or yoga practice spot for inspiration. Pair this meditating gnome with the equally colorful "Strike a Pose Zen Yoga Frog" Statue.

Certain Greenmen can also contribute to the peaceful atmosphere of a garden. The Daphne: Greenwoman Wall Sculpture reflects the cheerful nature of trees made to dance in a gentle summer breeze. Look close and you can see fairies cavorting in Daphne's leafy locks.

Buddha statues are another type of sculpture perfect for touching the garden with a bit of Zen. Make a big, peaceful statement with a large Buddha statue like the Giant Buddha Monument-Sized Garden Sculpture, or go smaller with the Baby Buddha Studying the Five Precepts Statue.
