A quality piece to attract attention

St. George Slaying the Dragon Sculpture

 

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

St. George Slaying the Dragon sculpture is not only a beautiful quality piece of work but is also an attention getter because of the detail in its creation and the fact that it is a representation of an action. The sculpture is finished with a lot of detail and a very nice sheen. I am pleased that it attracts close inspection.

How to Decorate the Garden with a Bigfoot Statue

Bigfoot the Garden YetiA legendary creature is said to roam the wild lands of North America. Tales and many a witness describe a huge, hairy beast that walks on two legs and haunts the deep forests and swamps of the Pacific northwest, the southern states, and even the river valleys of eastern Ohio. It only comes out at night and although no one has ever taken a definitive photo of the creature, hundreds of people insist that they have seen it and many have also made casts of its giant  footprints. It has been called "Bigfoot" on account of those huge feet but that's just the most recent name given to this cryptozoological beast. Different Native American cultures also refer to it as Sasquatch and Genoskwa, and some believers call it the Great North American Ape!

No matter what you call Bigfoot, a statue of the large, hairy Hominid is a unique, wonderful addition to the backyard. While you could put Bigfoot, the Garden Yeti Statue on display right in the middle of the yard. a more realistic spot for a Bigfoot sculpture is under the shade of a large tree or in the recesses of the garden. This more closely matches its shy, retiring nature and will add realism to your collection of resin garden statues. Compliment the standing Bigfoot sculpture with the equally unique Bashful Yeti Tree Sculpture.

A Cherub's Prayer SculptureReligious-themed statues can be found at a variety of big box stores and smaller garden shops but how many of those sculptures are truly suited for your garden?

This St Francis is my favorite of all time. I have given it to my wife, mother in law and others as a gift.

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.

Dine Like Royals with Gothic Tables

Effingham Gryphon Library TableNo dining room is complete without a fine dining room table. While one could eat dinner on a small card table or while relaxing on the couch, the evening meal is always better when properly enjoyed at a fine table made for that purpose. It gives you more room to enjoy a full course meal, share your repast with family and friends, and can also be used to display candles, small statues, and other beautiful decor. European royalty recognized the importance of proper furniture for dining and typically used big, beautifully carved tables in their castles, mansions, and estates.

They dined at tables similar to the ones in our Gothic furniture collection. Many of the tables, chairs, and other furniture items in our Gothic and Medieval collection are modeled after antique replicas that act as decor in the halls of Victorian estates and old castles. The Effingham Gryphon Library Table is one such furniture item. Carved from richly colored mahogany, this beautiful piece shows the same detailed scrollwork as tables used by royalty two hundred years ago.

The Lord Raffles Lion Table is another hand-carved, absolutely majestic, mahogany dining table. Set the plates and cutlery on this beautiful furniture item and you will feel like absolute royalty at every meal. Complete the regal look with a set of fantastic Hand-Carved Mahogany Charles II Chairs.

Find fantastic antique replica furniture for the best prices at Design Toscano today.

Animal Garden Statues as Garden Benches

Gothic RoundaboutThose of us who have gardens are fortunate indeed. We can use that green space to grow vegetables, try our hand at cultivating rose bushes, feed the birds, throw wonderful backyard parties, or just sit back and read a book under the shade of a favorite tree. No matter how we like to enjoy the beauty of the backyard, it will always be a welcome sanctuary for rest and relaxation. Certain types of decor can aid with relaxation, especially beautiful sculpted benches. An ornate steel bench like the Gothic Roundabout makes a classic artistic statement in any backyard but if the garden could use a stone bench that also acts as an animal sculpture, you might want to add the Giant Neoclassical Swan Garden Bench to your garden statue collection. The fine details and swan-sculpted arms of this big Victorian bench will turn it into centerpiece garden furniture decor.

For a smaller, yet equally regal place to sit and read a book, put the Grand Lion of St. John's Square Sculptural Bench into the garden. The powerfully sculpted lions that make up the legs of this bench give this garden decor a truly royal appearance. Get this wonderful garden bench for the backyard or put it in the reception area of a hotel or restaurant to make clients feel like royalty.

Find these and other stunning garden benches at Design Toscano today.

Fond memories

Spitting Gargoyle Of Notre Dame Statue, Historic Direct Casting

 

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

I saw the original first-hand on the roof of Notre Dame de Paris in 1995. You had to pay to go up there, but the cathedral was being restored, and watching the workmen patching the parapets and cleaning the gargoyles was worth every franc. Things were badly weathered, and I think some of the gargoyles were actually replaced by precise copies. I really liked the spitting gargoyle and to be able to present him as a gonzo 41st wedding anniversary gift to my husband was simply golden. "Spitter" is sturdy if weathered-looking, built to last, just like the original, and commands enough presence with his size and forbidding visage that our dogs are yet to insult him even after several months. We love our "Spitter!"

The pride of our garden

Spitting Gargoyle Of Notre Dame Statue, Historic Direct Casting

 

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

Bought the spiiter at least 15 years ago from Toscano. We get remarks on the spitter from every guest. The cost was 750.00. The cost now is much more reasonable. The statue has weathered a bit but looks more like the original @ Notre Dame Catherdral in Paris. The casting is very light and can be moved easily. My brother really liked the spitter and since he donated one of his kidneys to me this summer, I am purchasing one for him for his garden.This casting is excellent.
