It has often been said that this is the most wonderful time of the year. Although we in the USA have yet to celebrate Thanksgiving, and the official holiday season doesn't start until after Turkey Day, it's already begun for millions of people and many a business. You and your neighbors show that holiday spirit by shopping for gifts and decor whereas stores get into the holiday mode with winter holiday displays, playing Christmas carols and other traditional music, and offering plenty of sales. People who own a business that depends on holiday sales are very aware of why this is the most wonderful time of the year and need to take the right steps to meet their all important fourth quarter goals.
Marketing is key to surpassing the end of the year sales challenge and an important role is played by winter holiday decor. This year, help your business stand out from the crowd by putting unique, eye-catching decor on display. Instead of using the same decorations as other stores, bring in the customers with realistic animal garden statues like the Grand-Scale Black Forest Garden Deer Sculpture. Dress this quality animal statue up as a reindeer and pair it with our fantastic life size Jolly Santa Claus Statue to entertain the holiday crowds and get them talking about your store. We also have a wonderful collection of religious garden statuary and stone garden angels that can also be used for filling your business with holiday cheer (and customers).

Garden statuary encompasses a much wider range of subjects than most people realize. While gnomes and fun welcoming signs continue to be popular additions to the backyard (and there's nothing wrong with using them as decor), nowadays, you can also accent the garden with a highly realistic animal yard statue, decorate the yard with stone garden angels along with a wide variety of religious statues, or add a unique touch to the yard with a fantastic Bigfoot Statue.
To bring a bit of Africa into your yard, put statues like the fantastic Lioness with Cub and the Stalking the Savannah Cheetah Statue on display. Both of these fine animal sculptures capture the essence of wild Africa with beautiful details and characteristic behaviors shown by these felines in the wild. Compliment these striking sculptures with the impressive Mombasa, the Garden Giraffe Sculpture.
Religious statues come in many forms and range from classic Christian statues like the breathtaking Ascension: Grand Scale Christ Sculpture, artistic angel-themed decor such as the Santa Croce Angel Wall Frieze, and beautiful Asian religious statues such as the Great Buddha Garden Sanctuary Sculpture.
As far as unique statuary goes, you won't find a better selection of fantasy-themed and unique resin garden statues anywhere else. In addition to our signature Bigfoot Statue, we also make it possible to decorate your yard with friendly alien decor, a quality Humpty Dumpty Sculpture, and much more.

November 11th marks a solemn and very special holiday for the United States of America. In 1918, on the 11th hour of the 11th month an armistice came into effect that called for an end to fighting during the First World War. The following year, that date became officially recognized as Armistice Day and years later, it eventually became known as Veteran's Day, an official holiday that recognizes the sacrifices and service made by veterans of all military branches. To honor this important day, we are offering a 20% discount on everything featured in the Design Toscano site.
Not sure what to buy? Browse the site and see how much you can save on a fantastic stone garden angel like the Angel of Patience Sculpture or the Angel of Grief Monument Statue. Both of these angel sculptures are resin garden statues of the highest quality and show that distinction with detailed wings, flowing robes, and lifelike features.
This is also a good time to buy and save on animal garden statues for your own backyard or as gifts for special friends. Decorate the backyard with a beautiful White Swan Statue or other realistic wildlife statues such as Simon the Fox.
Buy all of your holiday gifts today and tomorrow from Design Toscano and enjoy 20% off as part of our Veteran's Day Sale.

The garden is meant to be decorated. While you don't have to string lights from the trees (although that can also look nice at the right time of year), the backyard is always going to look better with a bit of decor. Resin garden statues add character and can let you decorate the yard with everything from Greek garden statues to highly detailed animal garden statues and stunning stone garden angels. However, if you would rather stick to a more contemporary touch when it comes to garden decor, you may want to consider using certain Asian garden statues.
While a large Buddha sculpture can add a majestic, timeless touch to the garden, Basho the Sumo Wrestler provides a more modern look. As he squats in classic Sumo fashion Basho gets ready to wrestle any of your garden gnomes and gives the garden a unique east Asian touch. To add depth to your contemporary garden sculptures, pair Basho with a Far East Garden Fighters Sumo Gnome Statue. The Sumo Gnome is also dressed for a wrestling match but looks far too happy and cute to actually do any wrestling. On the other hand, the Far East Garden Fighter Ninja looks more than ready to defend your backyard from squirrels, rabbits, and other intruders. To round out your display of contemporary Asian garden sculptures, you can't go wrong with the beautiful and musical Cascading Bamboo Sculptural Fountain.

Halloween has come and gone but as much as we all love that spooky day of the year, it's already time to start shopping for the next holiday season. Yes, the winter holidays are really just around the corner and they call for plenty of decor. This winter holiday season, instead of using the same decorations as last year, add a touch of elegance to your decorating theme with garden angels. The right garden angel sculpture can provide a unique, very classy look to your winter holiday display. Although it's best to keep those resin garden statues inside, certain angels are going to look fantastic when displayed inside the home, hotel lobby, or as welcoming decor for holiday shoppers.
The beautiful In God's Grace Angel Statue has just the right appearance and size to fit in with other interior holiday decor. The realism and soft look of this wonderful little angel won't fail to impress all of your holiday visitors and party guests. She will also be a beautiful statue for the garden when the winter is over.
The Resting Grace Sitting Angel Sculpture is another stunning angel statue that will look right at home among the rest of your holiday decor. This high quality resin angel statue is modeled after an antique Italian original and makes for lovely decor when placed on a mantel, ledge, or pedestal.

Dragons have been immortalized in paintings, sculptures, and folk tales for thousands of years. Although we often associate dragons with European knights, stories of winged, scaled monsters date back much longer than Medieval times. Depictions of dragons have also been found on ancient Sumerian artifacts and even on much earlier rock art. Although the reason why tales of dragons are found in dozens of cultures continues to be a mystery, that doesn't stop fantasy writers from putting them into their own stories nor artists from crafting fantastic dragon statues. They also make a wonderful garden statuary statement, especially when depicted as realistic creatures that perch on top of a roof or crafty magical beasts that scale the garden walls.
Dread the Dangling Dragon Wall Sculpture is a lively winged dragon that is clearly happy to be climbing up the wall. His scaled appearance, toothy grin, and formidable claws make this a classic dragon sculpture suited for the walls, trees, or other perches of home and garden. Pair it with a realistic Stoker's Moors Dragon Skull Statue to add to the Draconian effect.
The Warsin Dragon Statue is another climbing dragon and one with a classic look that fits right in with a Gothic-themed backyard or a garden that hosts a fine display of Greek garden statuary and stone garden angels.

Stone garden angels are also religious statues and are meant to inspire. The Glory del Cielo promotes inspiration with detailed wings, carefully carved robes, arms folded across the chest, and an innocent peaceful face gazing up at the heavens.

The Asian garden statue is meant to remind us of the many beautiful gardens that are found in eastern and southern Asia. In countries like China, Japan, and Thailand, certain types of decor have been an essential part of green space on large estates, public parks, and temple grounds for hundreds of years. Statues of Buddhas are used for religious reasons while sculptures of pagodas and other subjects are displayed for their symmetrical beauty. However, somewhat ironically, you don't have to have an Asian-themed garden to display Asian sculptures. Asian garden statues can look just as impressive as long as they are presented the right way.
For example, if stone garden angels and Greek garden statues are already situated in prominent places in the backyard, you don't want to put a large Buddha statue such as the Jolly Hotei Buddha right next to them. Instead, put the Buddha sculpture in another corner of the garden, perhaps under the tranquil shade of a large tree since such spots reflect the types of places where the Buddha is said to have meditated.
The Asian Dragon of the Great Wall is somewhat more versatile but still looks best when placed in or next to a flowerbed, or even better, when displayed right next a swimming pool or koi pond.
Find these Asian garden sculptures and dozens of other high quality resin garden statues for great prices at Design Toscano.

People have been decorating gardens throughout the world for thousands of years. Most of the decorating has involved simple, natural decor but some civilizations and cultures managed to turn the decorating of the garden into an art form. Although garden statues and careful pruning have beautified many a backyard, many of the most impressive gardens can be found in Europe. Sculptures for garden were limited to the clergy and nobility for much of post-Roman European history until the Italian Renaissance. As sculpting and other art forms flourished, merchants and well to do families placed fantastic statues in their gardens, including beautiful stone garden angels and works that paid homage to Greek garden statues. This garden decorating trend spread throughout much of Europe and may have reached its zenith during the Victorian era.
The United Kingdom took center stage as the most powerful nation during this time period and demonstrated wealth, knowledge, and prestige with estates and homes that had some of the most stunning gardens in history. Dozens of breathtaking statues decorated Victorian yards along with outdoor garden water fountains and the occasional bronze. Many of these sculptures can still be seen to this day, some on private estates and others on the grounds of museums and castles. Advances in the materials used to make resin garden statues have also made it possible to decorate your backyard with the same type of regal sculptures. Add the same sort of classic European flair to your place with statues like the Staverden Castle Peacock on an Urn, and Hebe, the Goddess of Youth Sculpture.

When shopping for garden statuary, we all want to find the best sculptures for the lowest prices. That can be a tough, time consuming endeavor when you restrict the shopping to malls, plazas, and other brick and mortar stores. However, shop for garden statues online at Design Toscano and you are always going to find the very best in sculptures for the backyard and business at excellent prices. For example, all it takes is one quick look at our sale page for garden statuary to see that we don't just cut prices on a few old statues.

Although the items offered at a discount vary, recently, our monument sized large Buddha statue has been available for $50 off the regular price.

You will also find sales on beautiful Greek Garden Statues such as Poseidon, God of the Sea, and a fantastic replica of the Nike of Samothrace along with discounted stone garden angels, and realistic animal garden sculptures.

Fall is finally here and it's an exciting time of the year. A new school year starts, the weather gradually changes from warm and humid to crisp, fresh, and cool, and football season kicks off with a blast. It's also a time to make changes in the garden. In autumn, we eventually have to ready the garden for harsh winter weather but in the meantime, we can decorate it to match the beauty and excitement of the fall. Halloween decor is part of that decorating theme and when high quality resin garden statues are used, the backyard can become the spookiest Halloween display in town. Creepy zombie statues like the Zombie of Montclaire Moors and the truly frightening Creeper from the Grave Statue will help turn your backyard into the Halloween hit of the town.
However, fall decor isn't only about Halloween. Unique statues such as the Nature's Wanderer Sculpture also provide a charming magical touch to a yard naturally decorated with a carpet of fallen leaves. Pair this wandering wizard with Mandrake the Tree Ent and he will look right at home in your backyard.
The changing weather also makes autumn a great time of the year to put up a weather vane. Put the Windblown Wicked Witch on the roof to keep with the spooky spirit of Halloween or go for a majestic copper Triumphant Angel to give your home a gleaming copper crown.

We use our gardens for a variety of reasons. Some of us take full advantage of the backyard and allocate space for a vegetable garden, include an in-ground pool, and use an open area for summer parties. Others just use the backyard to grow flowers and include a few resin garden statues as decor, whereas some folks opt for turning the green space behind the home into a Victorian-themed garden replete with a fine display of stunning classic garden statuary. No matter how you decide to decorate or use the garden, certain sculpture combinations will provide an additional degree of depth and emotion.
Solemn, thought provoking sculptures such as the Monteverde Angel Statue use a subtle combination of detailed beauty and emotional realism that helps turn your backyard into a special, hallowed place. The powerful appeal of this fine replica of a nineteenth century Italian statue is demonstrated by its popularity in gardens and villas throughout Europe. Pair this breathtaking stone garden angel with the timeless beauty of a statue of Hebe, the Goddess of Youth to add to your garden's solemn elegant atmosphere. Round out the peace and tranquility of your garden statuary display with a magnificent yet humble and quiet Large Buddha Statue or by placing the Great Buddha Garden Sanctuary Sculpture off in a quiet, shaded corner of the backyard.

When some people think of garden statuary, images of Greek garden statues or a beautiful stone garden angel may come to mind. While such sculptures certainly make stunning additions to the backyard, they aren't the only type of statuary that adds beauty to the garden. Some sculptures are functional in addition to acting as decor and one such very useful type of garden statuary is the stone garden bench. The stone bench has played a role as garden decor for more than 2,000 years and hasn't changed all that much since the times of the ancient Greeks except for being made of sturdy resin materials and cast stone instead of quarried materials.
Statues such as the Blair Castle Sculptural Gargoyle Bench are a wonderful addition to backyards that feature classic sculptures or follow a Medieval decorating theme. Use this unique bench as a place to put your books during warm weather and then bring it inside for use as a Medieval table during the winter. For an absolutely regal look, you can't go wrong with the stunning Giant Neoclassical Swan Garden Bench. Take a seat in this fantastic garden statuary item and you will feel as if you are living a Victorian dream. To round out your display of statuary, remember a loved one with one or more of our personalized memorial garden benches.

Resin garden statues help to complement a backyard with artistic beauty. They give the garden character and aid in transforming an average backyard into a personalized oasis. There's plenty of garden statues to choose from but with so many poor quality statues available, it can be hard to know where to buy reliable, high quality statuary. Even if you find a store that carries the type of quality resin garden statues you have been searching for, they probably aren't going to sell for anything close to bargain prices. In fact, that high quality stone garden angel or animal statue will probably be downright expensive but since unique garden statuary is so hard to find in the first place, we tell ourselves all too often that the high prices are worth it.
Well, we might do that until we discover the place with the best prices for resin garden statues and when that happens, it just doesn't make sense to shop for backyard decor anywhere else. You won't find that "place" at the local mall or plaza. Instead, it's much easier to get to and requires nothing more than a means of accessing the Internet. If you want to find garden sculptures and statues that are unique, of high quality, and always on sale, just go to the on sale garden statues page at Design Toscano. Every sculpture shown is on sale and includes such stunning statues as Tian Shan, the Asian Garden Sculpture, the haunting French Pleaurant Statue, and dozens of other unique, high quality sculptures for the backyard.

Fall may be approaching but we still have several weeks of warm weather to enjoy before the backyard is visited by the sharp bite of frost. There's still several days to take daily dips in the pool, weed the garden, and host beautiful evening parties in the backyard. Those garden festivities will of course require a certain degree of lighting and some of the most dramatic lighting comes in the form of certain angel statues. Add lighting and personality to the backyard with Majestic Angel Guardians of the Gate Statues. These stunning angel sculptures were cast from 19th century Italian originals that adorn the interior of a beautiful Italian cathedral. In the cathedral, they act as heavenly-themed candle holders and will have that same other worldly effect in your garden.
Pair those extraordinary standing angel sculptures with a pair of beautiful kneeling Bergama Renaissance Angel Statues. Modeled after Italian angels that were sculpted during the Renaissance, these breath taking statues feature similar realistic details, majestic wings, and a large candlestick holder. One of these fantastic angels makes a beautiful addition to the backyard but two will look simply stunning as they flank the entranceway to your garden. For additional garden angel lighting, impress guests further with a detailed, high quality replica of Michelangelo's Kneeling Angel with Candlestick Statue.

Garden statuary is an important part of backyard decor. Statues play a big role in adding character to the green space behind a home or business, can highlight its natural appeal, and can help to turn that backyard into a peaceful oasis. Among the many types of garden statues are realistic animal garden sculptures, statues of angels, and depictions of dragons. Each of these plays a role in certain decorating themes but can also be used together to create a decorating style that puts the focus on all things majestic.
"Majestic" in this sense of the word refers to decor that is outstanding in terms of size, splendor, and the impression it makes on visitors to the garden. These are sculptures fit for a royal garden and include such fantastic animal garden statues as the Regal Lion Sentinels of Grisham Manor and grand scale statues like the nearly eight foot long Bengal Tiger Sculpture. The lion statues are similar to sculptures that flank the entrances to huge Victorian mansions and have a similar, royal effect. The Bengal Tiger sculpture is an outstanding, majestic item on account of its life size proportions and realistic appearance.
Awe inspiring animal garden statues such as these are best paired with the most outstanding of angel sculptures. Although there are several angel statues in our collection that match that description, the Angeli di Luce statues stand out for their dramatic beauty, realism, and striking demeanor.
