The dying Slave is a statue even more beautiful than what I imagined before receiving it at home. The used material is magnificent, it really looks like some marble. Details are remarkable and the finish is exemplary. A real work of artist. I could not be happier. I am completely satisfied by this purchase. The object is done very well. The size, the weight, the description and the photos are exact. The object is carefully packed. The statue is really beautiful.

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.

Cute Garden Statues of Climbing Bears

Mischievious Bear Cubs SculptureEvery garden looks better with an animal yard statue or two. Whether putting a tiger statue on display or sculptures of unicorns and other fantasy-genre animals in the yard, animal decor always adds character to the backyard. Baby animals in particular lend a warm, adorable touch to backyard decor. Bear cubs are among the cutest of baby animals and we recognize that adorable look with realistic, heart warming climbing bear cub sculptures.

The Mischievous Bear Cubs Sculpture doesn't need to show anything more than realistic, life-like details to depict bear cubs at their cutest. These furry little guys are naturals at getting into trouble and play with each other every chance they get.

Bear cubs also love to climb trees at every opportunity and no animal sculpture shows this better than our Black Bear Cubs Up a Tree Statue. The trio of baby bears in this statue not only climb the tree but are also just as eager to climb on top of each other to get a better look of their surroundings. Put a smile on the faces of your garden guests by putting this fun animal statue near the entrance to the backyard. Complement it with Yonva the Climbing Bear Sculpture.

A Great Deal on a Gargoyle Statue

Talysus the Terrible Gargoyle StatueThose of us who love to spend time in the garden also love to find great deals on garden statuary. Of course, a "great deal" doesn't mean average or cheap statues that cost less because they look bad or are going to fall apart after a few months. No, "great deals on garden statues" translates to high quality, unique garden sculptures that cost much less than expected. Those would also be statues from our collection, including several excellent gargoyle figurines.

Talysus the Terrible Gargoyle Statue is one such sculpture. This laughing gargoyle is on sale and blends a menacing Gothic grin and more modern muscled appearance for fantastic, entertaining results. A sphere-topped plinth for a perch completes the fantasy-flavored look of this unique statue.

Another fine deal on gargoyle statues can be found with the Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyle Sculptures Set. These fun little gargoyles might not look as frightening as classic-themed gargoyles similar to the stone beasts that sit on the ramparts of old castles but they make up for it with a hilarious, adorable appearance. These cute little creatures will look right at home in a flowerbed, make excellent, unique gifts, and will put a smile on the face of any garden guest. Not to mention, they are also available for a great, low price.

Exquisite Piece for Dragon Lovers

The Dragon's Wrath Sculptural Candelier

 

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

My nine-year-old niece is a dragon fan, and she is thrilled beyond words with this. I had reservations at first that it might be a little too menacing-looking for a child, but she loves it; in fact her cousin, who's about the same age, wants one for herself. The lifelike detail--the way the dragon's tail snakes its way through the beautiful castle--is astounding. It can be used both as a "candelier" and as a plaything (I got her some miniature plastic knights so she can stage battles on it).

I first saw her in a friends garden in Dayton, Ohio. I couldn't stop looking at her. I asked the owner where he purchased her and he gave me the name of the catalog. I thought she would cost more than I could spend. I could not believe that she was under $4oo.oo. I ordered her that day. I received her within four days. I placed her in my sunroom where she remains today. Every morning I look at her and feel like she is letting the birds fly free. She reminds me of myself when I was a little girl.

Where to Buy the Best Gargoyle Gifts for the Best Prices

Boden Gargoyle SentinelGargoyle garden statues lend a classic look to any yard.

The best place to find such high quality, unique gargoyles is at the Design Toscano site.

We have a large selection of gargoyles for every taste that are also available for excellent prices.

The Boden Gargoyle Sentinel might be better suited for people who enjoy majestic gargoyles designed to make a big impression on garden guests.

Garden Cherub Statues for an Adorable Yard

Versailles Cherub Urn and PlinthAngels are representations of heavenly, perfect beings that can do no wrong. This is why sculptures of angels tend to be majestic, are bereft of flaws, are serene, and are neither male nor female but a beautiful, other worldly creature that resides in the heavenly realms. However, not all angels are mature and adult in appearance. Some angels look like chubby, innocent, winged babies. These are the cherubs and sculptures of these miniature angels are the perfect means of adding an adorable touch to any garden.

Whether by merit of their small dimensions or innocent appearance, cherubs tend to be more versatile than larger, winged angels. As is shown by the Versailles Cherub Urn and Plinth, they can be used to decorate urns and other classic garden decor, including outdoor garden water fountains. The Cherubs at Play Sculptural Fountain is adorned with several playful cherubs that give this classic functional decor a lively appearance.

Most cherubs, though, just look adorable. The Balancing a Dream Sculpture is a cute, sleeping baby angel that lends a peaceful, lazy look to the backyard. Complement this cute decor with other adorable cherub sculptures like the "Cherubs d'Amour Statue"  and the Topsy and Turvy Cherub Twin Statues

Find high quality cherub sculptures, classic garden statuary, and other unique decor for the best prices at Design Toscano.
