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.

Dragon Garden Statues and Dragon-themed Decor

Mystic Dragon Avenger StatueThe dragon is one of the most spectacular and mysterious of mythical creatures. These factors, along with the legends that accompany them, also turn dragon statues into striking, stand-out decor for any backyard. Put a dragon in the yard and your place will look a bit more like a regal keep than an average home. It will show guests and neighbors that you appreciate the fantasy genre, Medieval decor, and ancient tales.

The Mystic Dragon Avenger Statue is a powerful, striking dragon sculpture that looks best when displayed at the entrance to the backyard. It pairs well with the regal Grande Dragon Sentinel Statue, another stunning dragon statue that depicts a fierce, clawed, scaled dragon clutching a Medieval shield.

Although the dragon sculptures mentioned above focus on the fierce qualities of these legendary, intelligent beasts, dragon statues can also take on a fun, cute appearance. "Blushing Babel, the Bashful Dragon" Statue will make a nice pet for your garden gnomes, and "Mayze, the Dragon Protector of the Orb" Statue is a fun, fantasy-themed piece to put in the backyard.

Keep in mind that we also have a number of dragon-themed home accents including the exquisite Florentine Dragon Gothic Iron Doorbell, and the Celtic Timekeeper Sculptural Dragon Wall Clock.

Enjoy a 20% discount on any of these items, Gothic decor, and other items on our site until May 27th.

Unique Statues for Garden and Gothic Décor for the Home

Zen, Garden GnomeIt's easy to find decor for the home and garden but it's not so easy to find unique, high quality items for low prices. Well, not so easy unless you already know where to shop for them. You won't find detailed, beautiful animal garden statues, the best selection of stone garden angels, nor unique objets d'art for the home at the nearest big box store. You might find a few nice items after scouring stores for hours but even then, they are going to cost more than you probably want to pay. The easiest place to shop for high quality decor is at Design Toscano simply because we have a huge selection of unique, high quality items for great prices.

For example, if you feel like buying a new garden gnome but would much rather have a gnome that stands out from the crowd, you just might like the cute "Zen Garden Gnome" Statue. Although this gnome would rather meditate than work in the garden, he hasn't relinquished his white beard, pointed red hat, and other typical gnome attire. Complement his search for higher consciousness with the "Strike a Pose Zen Yoga Frog" Statue.

As for interior decor, you will find hundreds of exquisite and stunning items in our Basil Street Gallery as well as such high quality Gothic-themed decor as the Warwickshire Dragon Glass-Topped Coffee Table and the Chateau St. Roche Sculptural Wall Mirror.

Fantastic statue

Sword, the Arthurian Dragon Statue

 

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

This is an absolutely beautiful statue. The detail is amazing on both the dragon and the sword. The picture just cannot show how detailed it really is. It is darker than the photo but to me that makes it look even better. It is a great addition to my collection.

A Stone Garden Sculpture for a Unique Backyard

Blushing Babel, The Bashful DragonUnique garden statuary is needed for a unique backyard. An average, everyday sculpture just won't do for gardens that are decorated with carefully sculpted Bonsai vegetation, that make use of an exquisite Japanese rock garden, or have greenmen statues on some of the trees. The same can be said for backyards that already make use of our beautiful animal garden statues or one of our classic Bigfoot statues. Such backyards look best with statues that are both enchanting and unique, and the best place to find them is at the Design Toscano site.

The Dragon of Falkenberg Castle Moat Lawn Statue adds an intriguing Medieval touch to the garden. Put this lawn swimming dragon next to one of your fountains or on a stone garden wall for full effect. It can be complemented with any number of equally fantastic resin garden statues, including such unique sculptures as Apex, the Winged Dragon and "Blushing Babel, the Bashful Dragon" Statue.

The "Strike a Pose Zen Yoga Frog" Statue is a one of a kind animal yard statue that will put a smile on your face every day of the week. This fun frog is just about guaranteed to be a topic of conversation at all of your summer garden parties and looks even better when paired with the exotic "Jungle Forest Tree Frog" Statue.

Dragon Garden Statues or Dragon Sculptural Tables?

Sir Sagremor's Dragon Statue with Gazing OrbThe dragon is one of the most legendary and enduring of mythical creatures. In fact, stories of this scaly beast have been around for so long that some have wondered if dragons did indeed exist at some time in the past. Although evidence for actual dragons has yet to be found, that doesn't stop many cultures from paying homage to those intriguing creatures with films, fantasy novels, and works of art. Some of those works of art include sculptures of dragons for the garden.

Our Sir Sagremor's Dragon Statue with Gazing Orb is a classic, fantasy-themed dragon that works well in a variety of gardens. Compliment your collection of garden fairies, gnomes, or classic statuary with this enchanting sculpture to add an extra bit of magic to the backyard. It will look even better when paired with the classic Desmond the Dragon Statue.

If you already have enough dragon statues for the backyard, you could always buy dragon-themed decor for the interior of home and business. One of the most stunning dragon decor items you will ever see is the Warwickshire Dragon Glass-Topped Coffee Table. This magnificent sculptural table features a detailed, Medieval dragon that would be wonderful decor all on its own. However, it also acts as a functional, stunning coffee table.

How to Know When to Buy Dragon Garden Statues

Stoker's Moors Dragon Skull StatueNo matter how big or small a collection of  resin garden statues may be, there always comes a time to buy more garden statuary. We might want to change the overall decorating theme and lack the right type of statues, or we might just feel like putting something new on display. The following three reasons show when it might be time to buy a few dragon sculptures:

  • The backyard could use an infusion of Gothic Decor: Dragon statues are classic but they will also fit into any Gothic decorating theme. Whether you have a backyard with an emphasis on the creepiest of sculptures or one that pays homage to Gothic architecture, dragon sculptures fill an essential niche.
  • The gargoyles look lonely: In other words, if you already have three or more gargoyle statues but no dragons, it's time to balance that Gothic display with a dragon or two. You could go for a basic scaled beast like Desmond the Dragon Statue or just put a dragon skull in a flowerbed.
  • The house could use a unique rainspout: One of the funny things about dragon sculptures is that they don't just have to sit around and proudly show a ferocious, enchanting demeanor. They can also be used as rain spouts and look great when used for that function! Try Ranier, the Sculptural Dragon Rainspout.
Find the best in dragon sculptures for the garden, gargoyle figurines, and hundreds of other high quality garden statues at Design Toscano.

Nice Details

Wallie from Sacramento - CA - USA reviewed the Benevolent Asian Dragon Statue

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

The dragon was better than expected and highly detailed however there appears to be a flaw with the mold when cast. The teeth and tongue on one side are flawed. The teeth on the "good side" come to a blunted point as expected but the teeth on the "bad side" are flattened and double in width. The tongue on the "bad side" is flawed and looks like material that was not removed after removing from the mold. It is likely the same with the teeth as extra material was left. I have included photos so you can see what I mean. My wife is painting the dragon so the colors are different than the way the dragon was shipped. Other than the flaws in the mouth we are pleased with our purchase although it would have been terrific to have a "perfect" dragon. It was look fabulous in our garden.

Fantastic Indoor Dragon Garden Statues

"Dragon Minions of Darkness" StatuesDragons have enchanted, frightened, and intrigued people for thousands of years. While no one really knows how legends of dragons originated, that doesn't stop us from continuing to love stories of massive, fire-breathing beasts to this day. We help keep those stories alive in part, by using exquisite dragon decor in the garden. A dragon skull or a statue of a scaled Medieval beast rising out of the ground makes for quite the fantasy-inspired statement but there is also dragon decor for the home interior.

Two of the most enchanting dragon statues for the inside of the home are the Dragon Minions of Darkness. Both of these statues feature classic winged dragons replete with sharp fangs and claws. A further touch of realism is provided with bright, shining hues of emerald green, ruby red, silver, and brilliant gold. In most stories, dragons are not dull, feeble minded monsters but display a cunning mind as sharp as their massive claws, and sport shining natural, brightly colored suits of armor. Artist Liam Manchester has managed to capture just that essence with these fine dragon sculptures and adds another dramatic touch by placing them more than a foot and a half above their stone-shaped mounts. Put these stunning dragon statues on display to enthrall all of your fantasy fan guests.

Enjoy 20% off these fine dragons, Medieval home decor, all of our detailed gargoyle figurines, and everything else on the Design Toscano site when purchased by December 31st.

Dragon and Gargoyle Bronze Garden Sculptures

Winged Gargoyle of Naples Solid Bronze Garden Statue - SmallSome folks might stick to garden gnomes and an angel statue or two when it comes to backyard decor but some of us would rather decorate the yard with gargoyle figurines and majestic sculptures of dragons. Neither decorating theme is better than the other because it all comes down to a matter of personal preference. Gnomes tend to be cute while gargoyles are by nature, somewhat more intimidating. However, they are also wonderful, classic decor. Since gargoyles can be found on the ramparts of castles and some of the world's most majestic Gothic cathedrals, you could also say that those winged monsters are sort of like royalty when it comes to garden decor.

Given their special status, it's only logical that we offer dragon and gargoyle sculptures in bronze. This classic, beautiful metal alloy was a favored sculpting medium for the ancient Greeks and continues to be used by professional artists to this day. The color, texture, and durability of bronze can help turn a good quality statue into a masterpiece. Both of our bronze dragon and gargoyle sculptures fall into this category and make a prize addition to distinguished gardens of any home and business. The Asian Dragon with Power Orb is a fantastic, enchanting statue that can also be used as a fountain while the Winged Gargoyle of Naples makes for an exceptional welcoming sculpture for the backyard.

Find these and other fine bronze sculptures at Design Toscano.

Save on New Gothic Décor and More at Design Toscano

Those statues are certainly magnificent but Gothic decor also includes beautiful wall decor, statuettes, and functional items. We update our Gothic collection with new items on a regular basis including decor that could be classified as Gothic, Medieval, or even Celtic.
