Resin Garden Statues for Favorite Backyard Trees

Hanging Jungle MonkeyThose of us who spend a lot of time in the garden have our favorites. We have that special animal yard statue that we put in the garden year after year. We might have favorite garden gnomes or certain garden fairies that give the backyard a beautiful, enchanting appearance, and some of us have a favorite sculpture of an angel. Most of us also have our favorite bit of natural decor and this usually takes the form of a tree.

It might be a craggy, old oak with a swing hanging off the biggest branch, a tall and elegant maple, or a big, beautiful Blue Spruce. No matter which tree happens to be a favorite, it will look better with a bit of decor. To give the tree a fun, easy-going look, hang the Hanging Jungle Monkey Statue on one of the lower branches and put smiles on the faces of garden guests. Complement it by putting Bigfoot, the Bashful Yeti Tree Sculpture behind another, smaller tree.

Of course, when it comes to tree decor, you can never go wrong with greenmen like the Whispering Wilhelm Ent Tree Sculpture and The Spirit of Nottingham Woods.

Three Benefits of a Large Garden Angel Statue

Praying Angel Garden StatueDecor is an important aspect of any garden. The backyard looks incomplete and lacks personality until we decorate it with a sculpture or two, and one such genre of garden statuary is perfect for turning an everyday backyard into a place of peace and inspiration. This special decor is the angel statue, and the following benefits show why large angel sculptures hold a place of prominence in cathedrals, estates, and the biggest displays of garden statues:

  • Classic appeal: Few sculptures are more classic in appearance than a large, beautiful angel. Put the Grand Basilica Praying Angel Garden Statue on display and guests will be reminded of the antique works of art that grace European museums and cathedrals.

 

  • Majestic decor: Angels are meant to be majestic and they show it with long, flowing gowns, big feathered wings and an other-worldly appearance. Several angels in our collection are nothing short of majestic, including the striking Angeli di Luce. These breathtaking angels are directly cast from antique angel sculptures from an Italian cathedral.

 

  • Inspiration: Angel sculptures have a tranquil appearance that encourages relaxation and reflection, especially large angel statues like the Angel of Patience Sculpture.

Browse our site for the best selection of high quality resin garden statues and decor for the home, garden, and business.

What to Look for in a Garden Gargoyle Statue

Boden Gargoyle Sentinel SculptureIt's easy to pick out some types of resin garden statues. There are beautiful animal garden statues for every decorating taste, angel sculptures big and small, and an exquisite range of garden fairies. However, when it comes to gargoyle sculptures, some people have a tough time picking out even one statue for the garden. This mostly stems from lack of experience with gargoyle statues and just knowing what to look for. Finding a high quality gargoyle for any garden is actually much easier than most people realize. These are a few things to look for:

  • Details: When it comes to gargoyles, beauty is found in the details. For example, although the Boden Gargoyle Sentinel Statue isn't going to win any beauty contests, it mesmerizes with carefully crafted, symmetrical features, sharp claws, and a frighteningly life-like appearance.

 

  • Creativity: In addition to fine details, look for gargoyles that would make heads turn if perched on the ramparts of a cathedral or castle. Put Talysus the Terrible Gargoyle Sculpture on display and guests will be doing double-takes when they see this fine statue. Like many a classic gargoyle, Talysus has an intimidating, muscled appearance, and a fierce look. However, this backyard beast also has long, outstretched wings and a touch of realism that will provoke more than one set of goose bumps.

 

  • Class: A classic, high quality gargoyle statue gives the garden a touch of medieval class. The Cathedral Gargoyle Statue accomplishes this with ease.

Find the best gargoyle and dragon decor for the best prices at Design Toscano. Free Standard Shipping on orders of $75 or More through Sunday, April 26th.

Gothic Decor or Classic Garden Statuary?

French Pleurant StatueIt can be a dilemma. We realize that yes, the garden does need new statuary but do we buy a new Victorian-themed sculpture, another angel, or maybe even a gargoyle? Although gothic sculptures and classic statues might seem to be at two ends of the decorating spectrum, actually, such statues can have more in common than we think. Instead of settling on a classic statue, or a sinister gargoyle sculpture, why not get both?

Several gargoyles fit right in with classic sculptures and more than one classic item looks right at home in a garden that features a dragon statue, gargoyle, and other Gothic items. One such garden sculpture is the beautiful, yet haunting, French Pleurant statue. The intricate folds and faceless appearance of this decor give it a striking yet organic, natural look. Display this work of art next to a vibrant flowerbed or in the same field of view as your dragon sculptures.

Although the Odin Greenman Tree Stump Sculptural Table provides a fitting touch to yards decorated with Gothic items, it will also be the hit of the party in backyards decorated with classic statuary. Likewise, the Angel of Patience Sculpture and other angel statues act as inspiration no matter where they are put on display.

20% Off Spectacular Garden Statues

Giant Buddha Garden SculptureSome garden statues are cute, others are funny, and some resin garden statues are nothing less than spectacular. Such sculptures capture the attention and admiration of garden guests with realistic features, and powerful, dramatic appearances. They also tend to be large in size and the Giant, Buddha Monument-Sized Garden Sculpture is no exception. This large, seated Buddha is reminiscent of Buddha statues that grace many an Asian temple and garden. Every guest to your garden will be impressed by the tranquil presence of this carefully crafted sculpture.

We also have several spectacular angel statues, including the Angeli di Luce Statue. This beautiful angel is directly cast from a 19th century statue found in an Italian cathedral. Like those beautiful antique originals, this impressive angel has the same, majestic, otherworldly look. Get a set of these angels and pair them with the "Queen of Angels, Guardian of Children" Statue to boost the spectacular appearance of a big backyard or hotel garden.

Bronze sculptures are also ideal for highlighting the yard with spectacular decor. The Trotting Thoroughbred Horse Cast Bronze Garden Statue is carefully crafted in the traditional lost-wax bronze method to create a realistic, heirloom-quality item.

Sculptural Plinths as Garden Statuary

Grande Laurel Sculptural Plinth BaseHigh quality, classic garden statues look fantastic on their own but they look much better when they are given a place to stand on. The ancient Greeks and Romans realized this and is why they placed most of their sculptures on top of columns or plinths. These sculpted bases elevate fine sculptures to proper heights, help them stand out as centerpiece decor, and also add an extra, classic touch. Although any of the beautiful garden sculptures in our collection are fit to stand on their own, like the ancient Greeks and Romans, we also believe that such fine decor looks even better when placed on top of a classic plinth or elegant column.

Several sculptural plinths grace our collection including such classics as the Grande Laurel Sculptural Plinth Base and the Versailles Cherub Plinth. Both of these plinths are modeled after classic decor seen in museums and at the palace of Versailles. Use them to showcase any of your favorite sculptures, including magnificent angels like the Grand Cathedral Angel Sculpture.

The Rococo Sculptural Plinth can also be used to give a favorite sculpture a classic flourish. This beautiful plinth works especially well with statues of angels and the Lighting the Heavens Grande Cherub Sentinel Statue. We also have medium and large Classic Statuary Plinth Bases to fit all of your classic garden sculptures.

Where to Put a Large Garden Gargoyle Statue on Display

Florentine Gargoyle StatueGargoyles are classic decor in a category of their own. Those of us who love to decorate our homes with dragons and other types of Gothic decor also have a strong appreciation for high quality gargoyle figurines. However, many folks who do not generally decorate with Gothic items also have a gargoyle statue or two because these interesting sculptures fit in with a variety of decorating themes. For example, a large, high quality gargoyle like the Florentine Gargoyle Statue adds a nice touch to a backyard with a few Greek garden statues, and Emmett the Gargoyle Sculpture can fit in with garden gnomes and cute animal statues.

When purchasing a large gargoyle, one of the biggest challenges is figuring out where it should be put on display. For example, you might want to reserve one side of the backyard for an angel statue, and put Talysus the Terrible Gargoyle Sculpture on the opposite side of the yard. Or, Talysus might look best when placed in a dark, shaded corner of the backyard.

Entranceways are another perfect place for gargoyles because these intimidating stone beasts were meant to act as guards and greet certain guests with cold stares. The Argos Gargoyle Sentinel Statue will look right at home when placed next to the back door, or as a centerpiece item.
