Beautiful piece

Uriel: The Archangel Sculpture

 

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

I like this piece. The artist has portrayed Uriel as a commanding figure with his outstretched pointing hand and stern face. His power is in his stance, not the sword in his other hand.

Gothic Décor Gift Ideas

Frost, the Gothic Dragon Holiday OrnamentAt this time of the year, we could all use a gift idea or two. Even if you know exactly what to get for 99% of the people on your list, there are always one or two people for whom gift ideas are evasive. One unique idea is decor with a Gothic flair. You might be surprised at the number of people who would like Gothic decorations. While ravens and other classic Gothic items are best suited for folks who already have a strong appreciation for the genre, there are other items suited for people who appreciate classic decor and fantasy novels.

Frost, the Gothic Dragon Holiday Ornament is a limited edition ornament that shows a beautiful snow dragon perched on top of a crackle glass orb. This collectible will be one of the most unique and striking ornaments for any tree and will be much appreciated by anyone who enjoys the fantasy genre.

The Marshgate Castle Dragon Sculptural Electric Wall Sconce might be a good option for the person who has everything. This unique, functional decor blends the intriguing details of a dragon head with an illuminated orb. Try the Zombie Claus Holiday Statue for folks who like zombies or someone who has everything, including a sense of humor!  

Buy any of the beautiful resin garden statues and other items in the Design Toscano collection today, November 16th, and pay nothing on regular shipping.

I've been searching for angels that weren't cute litttle cherubs. I''ve read and heard stories of how angels were, at times, warriors, protectors and the army of God. These statues convey that image perfectly. They are perfect.

The cobras are highly detailed. Only drawback is that they come in two parts, a little hard to screw together and align. I waited forever as they were back ordered, but well worth the wait.

How to Know When to Shop for Gargoyle Gifts

Emmett the Gargoyle SculptureNovember is moving forward with steady steps to the biggest holidays of the year. If you haven't started any of your winter holiday shopping yet, each passing day is a poignant reminder of those quickly approaching dates. Sometimes, we put off shopping because we just have no idea what to get. When that happens, you can be better off thinking outside the box and buying unique gifts than looking for the same old stocking stuffers.

A gargoyle statue can be an excellent option when you need to think outside the box for holiday gifts. Emmett the Gargoyle Sculpture is a safe, easy gargoyle gift for people who enjoy the fantasy genre or have other types of garden statues. This cute little gargoyle is also easy to display in the backyard, on a back porch, or inside the home.

People with an appreciation for Medieval decor and classic statuary might like our Florentine Gargoyle Statue. This classic gargoyle is inspired by sculptures that sit on the ramparts of old European cathedrals, and also acts as wonderful Gothic decor.

If someone on your gift list already has Gothic statues and gargoyles, they will love the Boden Gargoyle Sentinel. This exquisite gargoyle features fine, sharp details, and has a classic, intimidating appearance.

Buy any of our gargoyle figurines, resin garden statues, and other unique items in our collection today until November 16th and pay nothing on regular shipping.

Shop Design Toscano for Unique Hunting Trophy Sculptures

Alicorn Unicorn TrophyHunting trophies adorn the walls and dens of many a household where family members pursue deer, ducks, and other wild game. However, you can bet that few hunting households display the unique trophy sculptures in our collection. To do so would require a hunt that takes place in an enchanted forest, a trip back into prehistoric time, or in the very den of a dragon.

A pursuit in an old magical forest might reveal a sighting of a Unicorn. Although this pure, beautiful creature should never be hunted, there's nothing wrong with putting the Alicorn Unicorn Trophy on display. This unique sculpture entertains visitors and lends a Gothic touch to the home. 

To show the results of a far more dangerous hunt, put the Horned Dragon Skull Wall Trophy on display. The skull of this horned dragon looks so intimidating that we don't dare imagine what a live one looks like. Get this striking depiction of a dragon skull to highlight your collection of Gothic decor.

Hunters with a time machine could go after the biggest animals in history. Catching that dragon would have been a serious challenge but how would it compare to bagging a T-Rex? Get the T-Rex Dinosaur Trophy Wall Sculpture and you can thrill party guests with the wildest of hunting yarns.

Last Day to Take 20% Off Knight Statues and Other Unique Decor

King's Guard Sculptural Half-Scale Knight ReplicaWhen we shop for decor and garden statuary, most of us would prefer to have something a bit different. We would rather have sculptures that stand out in terms of quality and distinct appearance than statues that look just like the very average ones in the other yards on the block. This is one of the reasons why a statue of a knight makes a nice addition to the backyard or interior of the home. Put a knight sculpture on display and you give the home a royal, Medieval touch. Buy any knight statue today, and you can also enjoy savings of 20% off the regular price.

The King's Guard Sculptural Half-Scale Knight Replica is a fancy, highly detailed, three foot plus tall replica of 16th century Italian armor. The beautiful armor that was made for wealthy, Tuscan families wasn't so much battle armor as it was a status symbol. This is demonstrated by the artistic flair given to suits of armor from the times of the Italian Renaissance and many of them are unique works of art. Our replica captures that artistic beauty with a two- tone metallic finish and beautifully sculpted lions. Put one or two suits next to an entrance to give your place a regal look. 

Enjoy a 20% discount off these unique items, high quality resin garden statues, and any of the items in our collection until today, November 12th.

Overall an excellent piece of work.

UNWelcomeD Gargoyle Plaque

 

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

This is just as great as it looks. My only complaint was that one of the screws that came with it for mounting was shoddy manufacturing (the head was not tapped with the X in the center, but was almost to the edge so you could not screw it in at all). After using my own mounting screws it went up and has faithfully told all visitors how it feels.

This one is the perfect size to hang over my full-size bed and (as far as I can tell) a pretty good reproduction. The included rod makes it easy to hang as soon as it arrives; no need to go hunting for appropriate hardware. I've had this for almost three years and still love it!

Realistic Dragon Garden Statues

Sir Gawain's Dragon SculptureDragons might be creatures of legend but more than one person has wondered if they was a time when dragons did indeed roam the land. The belief in dragons is supported by the presence of similar, scaled beasts in a variety of cultures from different times and places. However, since a fossil of a dragon has yet to be found, their actual existence seems far from likely. Nevertheless, that hasn't stopped scholars from trying to find explanations for sculptures, artwork, and tales that depict dragons from ancient Babylon, China, and Europe.  

Tales and legends of dragons may have been inspired by fossils of dinosaurs, might stem from interactions with large reptiles, or maybe even come from other unknown creatures from the distant past. Some also say that dragons are just metaphors but whatever their origin, legends of dragons endure to this day. We can see them in several films, they still make regular appearances in novels, and life-like dragon decor can show up in the backyard. One such realistic depiction of a dragon is the Sir Gawain's Dragon Sculpture. This fantastic, highly detailed dragon looks as if it is clawing its way into the garden! You also get the attention of garden guests with the realistic, two foot plus long Stoker's Moors Dragon Skull Statue.

Give a Unique Big Foot Garden Statue for the Holidays

Bigfoot, the Garden YetiIt's high time to shop for the winter holiday season and once again, we wonder what we can possibly get for those people who seem to have everything. When shopping for those special people on our lists, we hardly know where to start. If the holiday shopping is restricted to local stores, it can take days of careful searching to find anything remotely suitable and even then, the choices are usually higher than than what the budget allows.

Instead of looking for extraordinary gifts in stores around town, save loads of time and money by shopping at Design Toscano. In addition to exquisite antique replica furniture, Egyptian art, and other unique decor, you will also find more than one life-like depiction of North America's favorite legendary beast; Sasquatch.

A Bigfoot sculpture is an excellent gift for anyone who seems to already have everything. If that person also enjoys paranormal themes and the fantasy genre, he or she will love a large Bigfoot sculpture. Standing more than two feet in height, this detailed Bigfoot statue lends a unique, eye-catching look to any yard. If that special person would be smitten with an even larger statue of Bigfoot, we also have a Giant Life-Size Yeti Statue. If that special person already has a statue of Bigfoot, complement it with Bigfoot, the Bashful Yeti Tree Sculpture.
