Better than I imagined!

The Fire Dragon Wall Sculpture

 

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

Finally opened my dragon head for Christmas, and it was even more gorgeous than I imagined. Much smoother and intricately carved looking, the face has a great personality to it and it will proudly be holding someone's hat in our Front Hall. For us, these dragon heads make great Hat Stands for my hubby's fedora, my daughters fav baseball cap, and the occasional friend's hat. So much more fun than just laying on the entry table. :-) Thank you Toscano. Still a loyal fan.

How to Choose Asian Garden Statues for Your Backyard

Far East Garden Fighter Ninja GnomeResin garden statues are wonderful, essential decor for many situations but it can be a challenge to pick out the right statue. We usually start by asking ourselves a few key questions like "Which type of statues will look best in the garden?", "How many statues should I buy?", and "Which decorating theme should I follow?". In addition, if you haven't done much shopping for garden statues, you might not even know where to look.

Whether just getting started with garden decor or looking for another addition to your personal collection of heirloom quality items, the best place to shop is Design Toscano. Take a brief look through our extensive collection and it won't take long to see that we have the best selection of unique, quality decor for the best prices. If you were thinking of putting Asian-themed decor in the backyard, browsing our Asian garden statue collection is the first easy step in finding the best Asian decorations for the garden. Here are two other questions to consider when looking for the best Asian statue:

  • Is this the first Asian statue for the garden?: If you already have Asian-themed garden decor but lack a dragon, the Asian Dragon of the Great Wall could be a suitable addition. Or, if this will be the first Asian-themed decor in your backyard, the Enlightened Buddha Sculpture will make an impression. 

 

  • How do you use your garden?: For example, if the backyard is dedicated to fun activities and parties, a Far East Garden Fighter Ninja Gnome could fit the bill. However, if the backyard is a quiet retreat or place for meditation, you would be better off with something along the lines of a solid bronze Tranquil Buddha Statue.

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

This is an excellent buy. The statue arrived far earlier than promised. It was well packed and in great condition. For the modest price tag, I doubt you will find a better looking statue, especially one this size. The color is exactly as shown on the web site and it would look great in pretty much anyone's garden. I am really pleased with this.

Entertain Garden Guests with These Animal Garden Statues

Saddle Up Horse BenchWe use our gardens for everything from quiet meditation to big backyard celebrations. Even if the garden is mostly reserved for the birds, trees, and peace of mind, it's still going to see an occasional guest. This is partly why we strive to find high quality, fun decor, and statues that will lend character to our personal green space. The following animal resin garden statues are just a few of many entertaining sculptures in our collection:

  • Death Valley Jake, the Jackalope Statue: When European settlers moved into the western frontier, they were entertained with tales of an odd creature that was half Jackrabbit and half Pronghorn Antelope. Although this oddity has never been seen in life, you can keep up the tradition of the Jackalope by putting this life-like statue on display in the backyard.

 

  • Terrence the Terrier Digging Pet Dog Statue: This fun sculpture shows a terrier doing what it loves to do best. Give a terrier an opportunity and it will happily put a large hole right in the middle of your garden.

Delightful Garden Fairies for Sale

Fiona the Flower FairyThe fairy statue became popular garden statuary during the Victorian era. Before then, a lot of people didn't need to put statues of fairies in the backyard because they believed that the "little people" were real and frequented the garden on moonlit nights. On occasion, some people also left offerings in the garden to appease the fairies and gnomes that supposedly lived there.

In modern times, although we don't really believe that fairies actually live in the garden (at least most of us), we still like to pay homage to the legend with high quality fairy decor. By nature, most garden fairies are lovely, delightful creatures. Those attributes are shown by the majority of the fairies in our collection, including our beautiful Fiona, the Flower Fairy Sculpture. This life-like fairy sculpture has a peaceful smile and elegant features that lend a happy touch to any backyard.

Another, equally delightful fairy sculpture is Fannie, the Fairy Sitting Statue. Fannie's lovely little smile and half-closed eyes fit in perfectly with a lazy, warm summer garden. Don't forget to buy and save on the Woodland Fairy Garden House Statue to give Fannie, Fiona, and your other garden fairy statues a place to live.   

Take 20% off any of the garden fairy statues in our collection as well as any of our high quality decor from today until July 7th as part of our July 4th sale.

Cheerful Greenmen Sculptures

Bacchus Wall SculptureThe greenman sculpture is an ancient form of art that probably has its roots in pre-Christian druidic belief systems. Rather like wall decor for trees, these interesting statues literally give a face to a favorite Oak, Maple, Ash, or other backyard tree. Although some look intimidating or even a bit frightening, there are greenman sculptures with happier, cheerful faces. These fun wall decor items are a perfect addition for a summer garden, and add just the right character to summer garden soirees.

Few wall decor items make a better fit for summer parties than the Bacchus, God of Wine Greenman Wall Sculpture. With wild, unkempt curls and a jovial, grape-ringed face, Bacchus shows that this is one deity who is always ready to party.

Another of the more cheerful greenman sculptures in our collection is actually a greenwoman. Daphne, the Greenwoman Wall Sculpture has a happy, easy-going face with bright eyes and smooth, flawless skin. Her face is also ringed with leaves of Laurel that blow in the breeze, and where tiny fairy creatures dwell.

These two statues are indeed cheerful but the title of "Happiest Greenman" goes to our Laughing Greenman Birdhouse. With a mischievous wink and roaring laughter, this fun greenman decor also acts as a backyard birdhouse.

Find unique greenman decor, Gothic furniture, and the best selection of garden statues for the best prices at Design Toscano.
