Those are some big shoes to fill but our selection of fantasy statues are definitely up to the challenge. These are the sculptures in our collection that represent creatures, beings, and ideas from the boundless realms of imagination. Put any of these statues in the yard and the garden will take on far more character than you have ever dreamed of:

  • The Abominable Snowman Life-Size Yeti Statue: This massive bigfoot statue showcases the wild, untamed stature of the Sasquatch along with the mystery of the huge, furry, two-footed Hominids rumored to roam the snow fields of the Himalayas. Put this amazing Yeti statue in the yard and watch as your garden guests run for the door, or for their cameras.

 

  • "Zombie Gnombie" Statue: It's hard to think of a garden statue that is less expected than one of a gnome that has turned into the living dead. This fantastic little statue will be the talk of your garden parties and makes for a frightening, exciting addition to the backyard.

Urns Are Also Sculptures for Garden and Home

Resin garden statues come in far more forms than the winged angel, stone lion, or other classic sculptures. Advancements in resin technologies and creative minds have given us a huge Versailles Cherub Urnvariety of absolutely beautiful garden statues to choose from, including fantastic greenmen sculptures, highly detailed animal garden statues, and exquisite, enchanting garden fairies. One of the many other types of garden statue is one that makes a classic statement for any yard and adds a royal touch to any business. This type of sculpture is the urn and it has been decorating plazas and gardens for more than 2,000 years.

The beauty of the urn is that it can be used as a regal place to display a beautiful flowering plant, or its sculpted beauty can stand on its own. The impressive Versailles Cherub Urn is modeled after the impressive urns that dot the extensive gardens of Versailles and like so many of the original royal French urns, this one features twin, winged cherubs and a beautifully carved surface. The four and a half foot height also makes it a proud, centerpiece decoration for any garden.

People who prefer the decor found on old Italian estates will love the Medici Greenman Architectural Garden Urn Statue. Like many sculptures in Tuscan gardens, this classic urn is decorated with classic greenmen on both handles. At two feet in height, it also works well as decor in a hotel, restaurant, or distinguished stores.

How to Honor the Memory of Loved Ones with Garden Statuary

Forever Remembered Personalized Cast Stone Memorial Garden BenchThe tragedy of losing a loved one can never be fully expressed in words. Some poetry and eulogies come close but the grief that we feel when a parent, friend, or child has passed goes beyond anything that anyone can say. We express and deal with that grief by talking with friends, making donations to a charity that the deceased would have supported, or making visits to the cemetery. Another way to honor passed loved ones is with certain resin garden statues.

One of the most straightforward and easiest ways to remember a loved one is with a memorial garden bench. These garden statues are especially suited for this purpose if the loved one enjoyed spending time in the garden or if the backyard acts as a place for contemplation and retreat. We have several beautiful memorial benches that can be personalized with the name of the deceased and other information. The Forever Remembered Personalized Cast Stone Memorial Garden Bench has a marble, personalized plaque and the words "Forever Remembered, Forever Missed" engraved into the heavy cast stone. Our An Angel Came Personalized Cast Stone Memorial Garden Bench is just as beautiful and engraved with "When tomorrow starts without me, try to understand, an angel came and called my name, then took me by the hand." Compliment these and other memorial benches with the beautiful Divine Memories Angel Sculptural Monument.

Find stone cast memorial benches and a variety of quality memorial statues at Design Toscano today.

The Differences Between Garden Fairies, Gnomes, and Trolls

"Axle Grease, the Biker Gnome" StatueOf the various types of resin garden statues available, few are better known than the iconic garden gnomes. These happy, little bearded guys always make for a cheerful addition to the backyard (except perhaps the Zombie Gnombie), and are easy, excellent little statues to add to any garden. Although there are also other sculptures of magical little beings, the statue in question isn't really a "garden gnome" unless it sports a colorful little cap, and has a beard (in the case of male gnomes). Although typical gnomes like Handstand Henry wear simple yet colorful clothing, Axle Grease, the Biker Gnome shows that some gnomes follow their own set of rules.

Garden fairies can be recognized and easily separated from gnomes by their much more delicate appearance. All appear to have wings, are females, wear natural or rather angelic clothing, and are more likely to play tricks on people than the hard-working gnome. The beautiful Celtic Fairy's Perilous Perch Garden Statue exhibits all of these characteristics but Rhiannon the Archer Garden Fairy Statue is a reminder that fairies also have a tough, more dangerous side that should always be respected.

As far as trolls go, garden statuary depictions of those typically solitary creatures are far and few between. Nevertheless, Theodor, the Garden Troll Sculpture captures the odd and intriguing essence of these intelligent garden creatures with realistic colors and fine details.

How to Pick Out a Garden Angel Statue

Divine Guidance: Praying Angel Garden StatueAngel statues look simply wonderful as garden decor. They fit right in with the peaceful atmosphere of green space and for some, add a welcome spiritual dimension to the backyard. However, it can be challenging to pick out the best angel sculpture for a backyard, or other situation. We want to find angel statues that fit in with their surroundings as well as other decor already in the yard, and pick out a statue that can act as a centerpiece item, compliment religious statues already on display, or just add a small touch of angelic beauty to the backyard.

For folks in search of a centerpiece angel statue, they could go for a big, majestic angel like the Grand Cathedral Angel Sculpture, or a smaller yet equally impressive statue like the Ascending Angel Sculpture. While both of these statues will work with other religious statuary, one of the better additions to a backyard with Christian-themed sculptures is the Divine Guidance: Praying Angel Garden Statue. With hands clasped in prayer and beatific features, this angel statue will add beauty to the garden and be a source of inspiration.

Those in search of a small yet lovely angel statue can't go wrong with the The Angel's Message Garden Statue. This lovely little angel is given a Faux antique French iron finish and crafted to resemble antique angel garden statuary that grace many a European garden.

We hope that 2013 was a wonderful year for all of you and that 2014 is filled with success, peace, and happiness. It's still winter but that means there's plenty of time to think about new garden statues for the backyard, home, and business. They might come in the form of fantastic animal garden sculptures like the Catch of the Day Grand Bear Sculpture and adorable animal garden statues such as the Yorkshire Lambs. Both of these animal statues demonstrate the realism and quality shown by all of our animal sculptures including classic Victorian style items such as the Regal Lion Sentinel of Grisham Manor.

If the backyard could use a new angel, the Ascending Angel Statue is one of our more dramatic items while the Praying Basilica Angel Statue captures the classic beauty of a devout, detailed angel with flowing locks, gown, and big feathered wings. If gargoyle figurines are more to your liking, we have sculptures of those intimidating creatures to meet just about every taste. The powerful Large Florentine Gargoyle Statue is one of the more classic gargoyles in our collection while little Emmet the Gargoyle wins awards for being the cutest creature on the block.

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.

The Ancient Majesty of Greek Garden Statues

Poseidon: God of the Sea Grand-Scale SculptureGarden gnomes might win awards for being cute but some types of garden statuary are simply majestic. It's easy to see why classic angels fall into that category. Created to inspire and remind people of the beauty and majesty of the heavenly realm, angel sculptures accomplish this with other worldly beauty, feathered wings, and fine details. 

Classic Greek garden statues were sculpted for similar reasons. They were put on display in the gardens of temples and important homes to inspire worship and were also revered in part, for their beauty. In modern times, although few if any people continue to worship the deities of the Greek pantheon, sculptures of such deities as Poseidon, Hebe, and Hemera continue to bring classic, stunning beauty to the best of gardens. The Poseidon: God of the Sea Grand-Scale Sculpture is a fantastic, five foot replica of an antique statue that has graced more than one Italian garden since the 18th century. Compliment the powerful stature of Poseidon with the much softer beauty of Hebe, the Goddess of Youth, and Hemera, the Goddess of Daylight.

Put these and other Greek and Roman resin garden statues on display to add a distinguished touch to every yard.

Enjoy free regular shipping when purchased by the end of today, December 19th!

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.

Enjoy 25% off these items and all of our beautiful resin garden statues, Gothic decor, and everything else on our site as long as you purchase by Friday, December 13th.

Garden Cherub Statues or Full-Sized Angels?

Balancing a Dream Cherub Garden StatueAngel sculptures have been popular since the Middle Ages but they come in more than one form than the tall, majestic angels of cathedrals and churches. There are also angels of mourning that grace many a cemetery and quiet garden, and baby angel statues or "cherubs". Although cherubs are just as angelic as their larger counterparts, these small angel statues tend to add an innocent, more adorable touch to the backyard than breathtaking centerpiece angel statues such as the Angel of Patience or the Grand Cathedral Angel Sculpture

In addition to their high level of cuteness, cherubs are also small enough to fit into any decorating theme. For example, even if it's the only angel in the backyard, the Balancing a Dream Cherub Garden Statue will look right at home when placed in a corner of the garden or right near the back door. Cherubs also look right at home on fountains of all types including the regal Versailles Cherub Urn or when featured on the beautiful Cherubs at Play Sculptural Fountain.

Of course, you don't need to choose between cherubs and larger angels because both look wonderful when put on display in the same backyard. The Heaven's Guardian Angel Garden Statue even blends the two.

Enjoy a 20% discount on these and other beautiful resin garden statues when purchased by the end of today, December 15th.

This sale cannot be combined with other offers.
