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.

Three Ideas for Spring Garden Statuary

A Cherub's PrayerThe weather might still be cold in some places and hot in other locales but spring is definitely here. Finally, we can venture back outside and enjoy the beauty of the garden. We can plant our favorite flowers and vegetables, and decorate the backyard to our heart's content. If you aren't sure how you would like to decorate the backyard for spring, we hope that the following three ideas will help:

  • New garden statues: Spring is about celebrating the end of winter and getting a fresh start. Celebrate the warmer weather by treating yourself to new garden decor. Those new sculptures can take the form of lovely, small decor like A Cherub's Prayer Statue, or you could go for large statues like the Majestic Horse Sculpture.

Remember a Dear Pet with a Garden Angel Statue

Cat Memorial Angel Pet StatueLosing a pet is a tragic, saddening experience. For many people, it can be as rough as losing a family member because indeed, the pet was treated as a cherished, special part of the household. If we lose a pet, we feel the need to remember our lost cat, dog, or other animal companion and a garden statue is one of the best ways to do this. Angel sculptures are especially suited for this purpose, and two of our angels are specifically crafted with care to remember pets that have passed on.

The Cat Memorial Angel Pet Statue is a perfect way to mark the resting place of a dear cat. Put this beautiful little animal angel statue where the old friend was buried, or in the cat's favorite corner of the garden. If the lost family member happened to be a dog, we also have the Dog Memorial Angel Pet Statue. This beautiful sculpture is an endearing way to remember your best friend, especially when placed in a shaded, peaceful part of the backyard.

Traditional angel statues can also act as a fine way to remember a loved one. The Thoughts of an Angel Sculptural Wall Roundel and the Cradled in Hope Cherub Statue are two of several angel sculptures in our collection that also work well as pet memorials.

Religious Outdoor Statues for Every Garden

Madonna of Notre Dame Garden StatueThere are religious statues for just about every faith. Folks in search of decor for a Christian-themed garden may prefer the Madonna of Notre Dame Garden Statue or the classic Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane but the Enlightened Buddha Sculpture will look more at home in a Buddhist-themed backyard. Some religious sculptures fit in with any backyard and these are also the statues that make a positive statement in hotels and other places of business.

The Topsy and Turvey Cherub Twin Statues are a fun, easy addition to any yard. As with other cherubs, these playful twins blend the innocence of children with the pure beauty of angels.

The Cherub as a Garden Angel Statue

Topsy & Turvey the Cherub Twin StatuesThere are many types of angel statues. Angels can be large, awe-inspiring sculptures that grace the interior of massive cathedrals. They can be winged, robed beings that grieve and mourn for loved ones who have passed on. They can also evoke feelings of faith and joy, or take the form of innocent babes. This last type of angel is one of the most interesting. Unlike their larger, dramatic counterparts, cherubs are playful, sweet little winged beings that embody the naturally angelic beauty shown by babies.

Their easy-going nature and natural beauty also makes the cherub statue suitable, beautiful decor for any garden. The Topsy and Turvy Cherub Twin Statues are one foot tall, detailed Putti statues with a playful appearance. Put these unique, happy cherubs near a fountain or next to a flowerbed for a garden with a cheerful look. Complement these fun cherub sculptures with the curiosity and realism of the Life's Mysteries Cherub Statue.

Cherubs are also perfect for adding adorable decor to the garden and the Cherubs d'Amour Statue is no exception. This endearing sculpture captures the innocence and shyness shown by darling children. You could also blend function with beauty and savings by purchasing the "Basket of Treats" Cherub Statue.

Buy any of the cherubs or other angel sculptures in our collection until August 13, and take 20% off.

Garden Cherub Statues for an Adorable Yard

Versailles Cherub Urn and PlinthAngels are representations of heavenly, perfect beings that can do no wrong. This is why sculptures of angels tend to be majestic, are bereft of flaws, are serene, and are neither male nor female but a beautiful, other worldly creature that resides in the heavenly realms. However, not all angels are mature and adult in appearance. Some angels look like chubby, innocent, winged babies. These are the cherubs and sculptures of these miniature angels are the perfect means of adding an adorable touch to any garden.

Whether by merit of their small dimensions or innocent appearance, cherubs tend to be more versatile than larger, winged angels. As is shown by the Versailles Cherub Urn and Plinth, they can be used to decorate urns and other classic garden decor, including outdoor garden water fountains. The Cherubs at Play Sculptural Fountain is adorned with several playful cherubs that give this classic functional decor a lively appearance.

Most cherubs, though, just look adorable. The Balancing a Dream Sculpture is a cute, sleeping baby angel that lends a peaceful, lazy look to the backyard. Complement this cute decor with other adorable cherub sculptures like the "Cherubs d'Amour Statue"  and the Topsy and Turvy Cherub Twin Statues

The Top Two Places to Put a Tiger Sculpture on Display

Power and Grace Sumatran Tiger SculptureTigers are one of the most fantastic creatures on the planet. These charismatic predators mesmerize with a blend of beauty, power, and grace. Their beautiful orange and white, black-striped coat helps keep them hidden as they stalk the tall jungle grass, and they use sheer, raw power to take down animal prey as large as Water Buffalo. For many people, these big cats are both respected and revered, and act as inspiration for a variety of art forms, including the stone garden sculpture.

Although a quality statue of a Bengal Tiger will make a statement no matter where it is put on display, it takes on a truly regal appearance in the following situations:

  • Just past the entrance to the garden: A tiger statue is a spectacular means of welcoming any garden guest but it will have even more impact when placed 20 or 50 feet past the entrance. Place a cherub or some other, more easy-going statuary at the entrance to the backyard to get their guard down,and then confront guests with a big, spectacular tiger statue like the Grand-Scale Wildlife Animal Collection: Bengal Tiger Statue.
  • A tiger to welcome guests to a business: The other best place to put a tiger on display is at or near the entrance to a business. If the reception area is large enough or has some green space, the same big Bengal Tiger from the backyard can be put on display. For smaller areas of green space, try the Power and Grace Sumatran Tiger Sculpture or a super cute Bengal Tiger cub.

Last Day to Take 20% Off Any of Our Religious Outdoor Statues

A Cherub's Prayer SculptureReligious-themed statues can be found at a variety of big box stores and smaller garden shops but how many of those sculptures are truly suited for your garden? From what we have seen, most are cheaply made, generic statues that don't really add any beauty to the backyard. Instead of buying religious statues that end up in permanent storage or at your next garage sale, shop for high quality, artistic, religious-themed resin garden statues found in our collection. As a bonus, when you buy religious statues today, April 7th, you can take 20% off the regular price.

That discount applies to everything from majestic stone garden angels to cute little cherubs and sculptures of the Madonna. The St. Michael the Archangel (1636) Garden Angel Statue is a dramatic, detailed sculptural depiction of a Renaissance era work of art by Guido Reni. Use this statue as a spectacular centerpiece garden sculpture!

If the garden only needs a cherub statue or two, buy and save on the cute little A Cherub's Prayer Statue. This adorable sculpture is a cute addition for spring and summer gardens. Pair it with the equally cute Baby Saint Francis Sculpture.

If a Madonna sculpture is more to your liking, you can't go wrong with the solemn, absolutely classic Lago Magiore Madonna Religious Statue.

New Garden Statuary for Spring

Spring means warmer weather and a welcome respite from the cold but it's also all about renewal. After the long, cold winter (and this year was particularly brutal), it's a relief to see green grass, fresh flower buds on backyard trees, and birds singing in the garden. The backyard looks fresh, revived, and ready to be decorated with your favorite stone garden angel, animal garden sculptures, and other cheerful decor. To mark this natural celebration, match the garden's fresh, new look with new garden statues from Design Toscano.

St. Fiacre, the Gardener's Patron Saint Statue is a nice addition for folks who are serious about gardening. Legend has it that Saint Fiacre was able to create a huge, beautiful healing herb garden with little effort. Hopefully, some of that gardening prowess will rub off on those who put his statue on display.

Another good candidate for a new spring garden statue is our Cherubs d'Amour sculpture. This cute little statue blends an angelic appearance with the innocent beauty of children and is a nice addition for a garden decorated with classic statuary or religious statues. Pair it with the equally adorable "Basket of Treats" Cherub Statue for full effect.
