Greek Garden Statues or an Animal Yard Statue?

Hebe, the Goddess of YouthMid summer is here and it could be time to change some of the garden statuary. Those garden fairies that were a perfect addition to a backyard during the spring just don't seem to fit in with the other summer decor. Or, it could be that you just didn't get a chance to buy any new decor before summer kicked into gear. Whatever the reason, when it's time to go shopping for new statues for the garden, even if you already know where to buy high quality decor for the best prices, you also have to figure out what to buy.

For example, do you go with a new stone garden angel or other form of classic statuary, or a realistic animal garden sculpture? It would be nice to buy all of the above and more but since most of us are on at least some sort of budget, we have to settle for one or two of our favorite choices. If you are looking to add a touch of class to the garden, you might want to go with something like Hebe the Goddess of Youth or Thalia, Muse of the Garden. If the backyard could stand for a more natural look, we have a large selection of animal garden statues, including such wild animals as the Lioness of Namibia.

Great Packaging for an Excellent Product

The Goddess' Offering Mermaid Sculptural Floor Lamp

 

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

Great piece, I was very curious as to how well the lamp would compare to the Website's photos and description. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that what I saw, I got - except better. Shipping is just as I suspected - off the back of a full size semi (truck) - I had to pick it up at another location as my neighborhood isn't set up for trucks that large - but it was very carefully packaged for shipping and the driver was very helpful in unloading. Still, considering how much I am enjoying the lamp, It was well worth it. I've been looking for a mermaid lamp for some time and there are a few out there that can only be described as "clunky" compared to this one. I'm glad I took the chance.

Three Things a Big Foot Garden Statue Can Do for the Backyard

Bigfoot, the Bashful Yeti Tree SculptureBigfoot, or Sasquatch, is one of the most searched for enigmas said to haunt the wilds of North America. If you happened to document one of these creatures in the backyard, your place would become immediately famous, as well as being constantly visited by Bigfoot hunters. Although images of Sasquatch have yet to be captured in anyone' backyard, you would come close with one of our statues of the legendary creature. In addition to attracting a Bigfoot hunter or two, here are three other things that a Bigfoot statue can do for the backyard:

  • Unique entertainment for garden guests: How many people can say that they have gone to a party attended by Bigfoot? Put Bigfoot, the Bashful Yeti Tree Sculpture on display and your guests will have a ball.

 

  • Help with marketing: A Bigfoot sculpture will get people talking and make it hard to forget your place. This could help make your home one of the more popular places on the block, and for a business, doubles as invaluable marketing.

 

  • Attract an actual Sasquatch to the yard: Well, maybe not but you never know, especially if you put the Giant, Life-Size Yeti Statue on display.

Simply gorgeous

The Garonne Water Nymph

 

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

I purchased the 4 piece set for my new home. They are absolutely gorgeous. High-quality craftmanship. Not too heavy for the walls, but definitely not cheap-feeling or light either. They hang perfectly. I am thrilled. They are a focal point in our living room and we always get complements. Highly recommended.

Yard Eater

The Gargantuan Garden Gator Statue

 

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

This is my 3rd Gargantuan Gator and by far the best. This is a different color with nice Bright White Teeth. I also have the Zombie underneath the Gator to make it look like the Gator half-ate him. I have both of them on artificial grass surrounded by 2 kinds of river rock. Everyone likes the Gator. I have 3 Rock Spotlights on both of them as they both show off well at night. Design Toscano is the Best. **********

Fine Chairs for Fantastic Gothic Tables

Charles II Side ChairsA table can simply act as a place to put a plate, a piece of furniture for playing card games, or as an enduring work of art. Gothic-themed tables fulfill all of the above and more by merit of fine craftsmanship, and high quality materials that can easily last for more than a hundred years (and probably much longer). Not to mention, when a beautiful table from our collection of Gothic decor and Medieval furniture is put on display, it adds a marked, distinguished highlight to any room.

However, even stunning pieces like the Lord Raffle's Lion Table need chairs, and the best seats to use are ones that match the decorative beauty of the table. Our Charles II Side Chairs make a fine fit for this distinguished table with ornate, hand-carved mahogany features, and a classic coat of arms on high class Jacquard tapestry. Don't forget to buy a pair of Charles II Armchairs for each end of the table.

The Chateau du Monde Coat of Arms Dining Chair is another seat that works very well with Lord Raffle's Table and other high quality dining tables. These chairs are also carved from solid mahogany and have beautiful coat of arms on Jacquard tapestry. If a simpler chair is more to your liking, the elegant Tudor High-backed Chair is just one of several suitable seats in our collection.

Unique Outdoor Elephant Statues for the Garden

Good Fortune Elephant Sculptural Garden ChairThe elephant sculpture is an animal yard statue that tends to stand out from sculptures of deer, bears, and other wildlife. It became a popular animal garden sculpture during Victorian days, especially because elephants were believed to be associated with good luck when they lifted their trunks high above their heads. Elephant statues still make a fine, classic statement and add a distinguished touch to gardens that host them. In addition to beautiful elephant sculptures for the inside of the home, we also have unique outdoor elephant sculptures.

The Good Fortune Elephant Sculptural Garden Chair acts as a unique, lucky place to sit down and relax at the end of a long day. Garden guests will also enjoy sitting in this one of a kind patio chair, especially when placed right next to the inviting waters of a pool.

Speaking of places to swim, we also have an elephant statue that goes for a swim in your lawn. The In for a Swim Elephant Lawn Sculpture is a detailed, realistic elephant statue that looks as if it is swimming right through the garden. Like the actual elephants that take to water in various parts of their range, our aquatic pachyderm moves through the "water" with a raised trunk and happy eyes.

4 Goddesses worth the price.

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Four Goddesses of the Seasons Statues made a great addition to our Statue Garden. While a smooth polished finish would have made them look more like Greek or Roman statues, the finish very closely represents the overall quality of English statues of the period.

A Gargoyle Sculpture for Your Place of Business

Emmett the GargoyleGargoyles have come a long way from being scary, intimidating sculptures on Medieval churches and castles. While many still have similar, intimidating features, nowadays, they are used more for entertainment and as unique garden statuary than sculptures meant to frighten away any bad spirits and evil doers. Since gargoyles provoke conversation, certain gargoyle sculptures can also work well as decor for a business.

Silas the Sentry Gargoyle will add character to bars, restaurants, and bookstores. He sports the same set of fangs, sinewy frame, and claws as other gargoyles, and takes in his surroundings with a curious look on his face.

Sleepy Goliath the Gargoyle works well as unique decor for a bookstore, coffee shop, or any number of businesses. Clients and customers will certainly inspect the details on this large, snoozing gargoyle. After checking out Goliath, you can put a smile on their faces with the Detest the Rest Gargoyle. "Detest" would rather be left alone and the look on his face is a familiar one for those of us who know people who have the occasional grumpy morning.

Of course, you could also add adorable gargoyle decor to the garden with cute Emmett the Gargoyle Sculpture. This littlest of gargoyles can be charming decor in a place of business, inside the home, and out in the garden.

Enjoy a 20% discount on gargoyle figurines and dragons until tomorrow, July 11th.

This sale ends tomorrow, July 11th, and cannot be combined with other offers.

adorable little playful pachyderms

The Five Playful Pachyderms Sculptures

 

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

These little fellas fit in very well with my decor. They look great together or seperated. I have them seperated yet within the same room. People who find thier playful hiding spots are always happy to see them. I did (by accident of course) dropped and broke two but a dot of super glue and I can't tell where they broke or even remember which ones. So the detail work is so wonderful that repair jobs are easy and self-hiding. How wonderful. Look and feel metalic yet are light weight. They make any room a bit more playful. Would make a great gift for pachyderm lovers. Even seperately they make great gifts. Never expected such detail in an item so small. I am happy I purchased them.
