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.

Fantastic statue

Shield, the Arthurian Dragon Statue

 

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

This is an absolutely beautiful statue. The detail is amazing on both the dragon and the shield. It is darker than the photo but to me that makes it look even better. It is a great addition to my collection.

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.

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

Gothic Temptress StatuesGothic decorations are more than gargoyle figurines and breathtaking dragon sculptures for the garden. 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. The Celtic Knotwork Tiffany-Style Stained Glass Window is one such piece. This beautiful stained glass piece combines the elegant patterns of the Celtic art form with a Gothic arch and warm red, yellow, and silver hues.

The Spirit Guide Angel Statue is just one of several striking statuettes in our collection. This fine piece was created by artist Anne Stokes and shows a striking, detailed angel with majestic wings and has a Celtic touch. Although this fine indoor decor displays the same type of enchanting mystery as many other Gothic items, if it seems a bit too angelic, there's always the equally enchanting, brightly colored Gothic Temptress Statues. Compliment these statues with the striking Jaw of the Dragon Offering Dish.

Garden Décor: The Overlooked Excellent Gift Idea

"Dreamland Fairy" StatueSometimes it's hard to find gifts for the holidays because we just end up thinking about the same types of presents we gave the year before. It might be clothing or some useful item but we don't often think of giving decor for the backyard. This is a perfect gift for anyone who has at least some green space behind the house. If the person in question likes to spend time in the garden, that's even better, but anyone with a backyard could use high quality decor for the garden. Even if he or she already has a fine display of Greek garden statues or a fun bunch of garden gnomes, you can bet that they will love to take the wrapping off another statue for the yard.

To find the best garden statue for that special person, think about how they have decorated their yard along with their hobbies, what they like to read, and so on. If they only have gnomes and other cute garden statuary, garden fairies like the Dreamland Fairy Statue is a good bet. They might also like high quality animal garden statues like adorable Pongo, the Hanging Baby Orangutan. However, if that special person is a fan of science fiction or fantasy novels, buy gargoyles figurines like the Chained Cathedral Gargoyle Statue or a realistic dragon skull statue.

Gargoyle Gifts for the Holidays

Argos Gargoyle Sentinel StatueThere are many types of presents that we can give for the holidays but the key to a good gift is finding one that will be appreciated or even adored by the recipient. If someone on your holiday gift list happens to love stories with dragons, plays fantasy video games, or is an aficionado of the horror genre, they are going to love it when they open that gift wrap and find a gargoyle statue. Gargoyles are classic decor that can give home and the garden an enchanting, magical touch. The different types of gargoyle sculptures also make it possible to find a gargoyle that fits into every decorating theme.

Cute Emmett the Gargoyle will look right at home in a backyard replete with cheerful garden gnomes, animal statues, and other light-hearted decor. Whether you put little Emmett off in a corner or right next to the back door, guests will love this littlest of gargoyles.

If you would rather see a classic, fierce, and intimidating gargoyle, Boden the Sentinel fits the bill with sharp claws, half open wings, and a no-nonsense expression on its fanged face. Put Boden on one side of a garden path and Argos the Sentinel Gargoyle on the other for full magnificent effect. If those are too fierce, you can go back to the cute route with The Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyles Sculpture Set.

Buy these gargoyles and any of the unique items on the Design Toscano site by the end of Sunday, November 17th and pay nothing for regular shipping.  

Free shipping ends on Sunday, November 17th and can't be combined with other offers.

Fierce and Beautiful Dragon Garden Statues

Ranier, the Sculptural Dragon RainspoutDragons can be mystical, enchanting, and wise, but we should never overlook their fierce nature. Many are the stories and legends of a powerful, dangerous dragon that needs to be avoided and/or appeased at all costs. To do otherwise might invoke its fiery rage and could doom the entire community. To resolve that perilous problem, the local villagers either send some sort of tribute or a hero to rid themselves of the beast. Hence, we have the legend of the dragon slayer but despite the danger associated with dragons, we continue to be spellbound by these mythical, magical creatures. They represent a fierce beauty that comes to life in fantasy novels and movies, and whenever they are depicted, the audience can't help but be impressed by their dangerous, majestic beauty.

You can bring that same detailed beauty into your garden with many of our dragon sculptures. The Mystic Dragon Avenger Statue shows the fierce side of the dragon with sharp details and a fanged snout. As it coils around its magic orb, this striking dragon somewhat resembles a gargoyle meant to protect your garden.

For a fierce and functional dragon, try Ranier, the Sculptural Dragon Rainspout. Put this unique garden statue at the end of a gutter and it will look as if the scaled beast is breathing fire every time it pours.
