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.

The Intimidating Beauty of the Garden Gargoyle Statue

Gargoyle statues aren't really in the same category as a peaceful depiction of a sleeping cherub or a cute little animal garden statue of a rabbit. No, Gargoyles were designed to scare off and intimidate evil spirits and people with malicious plans. Intimidation is an essential part of the Silas the Sentry Gargoyle Sculptureclassic gargoyle statue but that characteristic also lends the sculpture a certain degree of beauty.  Much of that beauty is found in the fine details shown by such high quality gargoyle statues as Argos and Boden; two striking Gargoyle sentinel statues. These two foot tall gargoyles make a beautiful Gothic statement with their wonderfully detailed wings, talons, muscled appearance, and classic French gargoyle faces. Use them to flank the entranceway to the backyard or house and guests will feel as if they are walking into a place where Medieval fantasy reigns.

Silas the Sentry Gargoyle is equally intimidating and beautiful. Silas demonstrates a frightening, intimidating, and realistic display of personality with its upturned face and accusing glare. With its tensed muscles and crouched position, this fine gargoyle seems ready to leap into the air and use its sharp claws to defend the castle at any moment.

Enjoy free regular shipping on unique resin garden statues and other items from Design Toscano from today until Sunday, August 4th. No minimum purchase required!

Combine Cute and Classic with Garden Cherub Statues

The stone garden angel adds a much needed touch to most gardens. Although they are supposed to live A Cherub's Prayer Statuein Heaven, angels seem to be as at home in backyards decorated with garden statuary. The classic angel is easily recognized by the combination of flowing gown and large, feathered wings. However, as beautiful and peaceful as such statuary is, few people would refer to angels as being "cute". That's alright because cuteness is more the realm of garden fairies, gnomes, and statues of children. Nevertheless, at least one type of angel is arguably cute and works well at blending cuteness with class.

The cherub is the original cute, innocent angel and can impart a unique, pleasant appeal to the garden. The Balancing a Dream Sculpture is downright adorable and fit for both garden and the home interior. Curled up in peaceful slumber, the classic, artistic beauty of this cute little cherub will earn the admiration of just about anyone who sees it.

The cute and detailed A Cherub's Prayer Sculpture will act as an inspiration and melt the hearts of the most Grinch-like of your holiday guests. Kneeling on a book with readable text, this cutest of angels clasps hands in prayer and impresses with the beautiful face of a babe.

The Relaxing Beauty of the Seated Stone Garden Angel

Resting Grace Sitting Angel SculptureAngels have been a common, recurring theme in gardens and cemeteries for centuries. Meant to bring peace to the garden or express a sense of mourning over a lost, loved one, angels have been shown in a variety of poses. They can be tall and intimidating as they tower above the garden with large, outstretched wings, look to the heavens with joy, or  they can be beautifully sad as they lower their head in a sign of mourning. Angels can also be seated as they ponder their surroundings in relaxed contemplation.

The Resting Grace Sitting Angel Sculpture captures the appearance and demeanor of the seated angel perfectly. With head resting on her hand, she contemplates your garden with a peaceful expression on her youthful face while the detailed folds of her long gown and feathered wings are a sight to behold.

For an even more relaxed look, you can't go wrong with the Afternoon Nap Angel Sculpture. This cute little cherub felt so at home in your garden that it fell fast asleep in a flower basket. With head resting on one of its wings, this baby angel is a perfect inspiration to take your own backyard nap.

A Stone Garden Angel that Looks Just as Good in the Home

Brixton Abbey Angel Wall SculptureAngel statues are classic garden sculptures. Their peaceful, otherworldly appearance adds a certain sense of tranquility to backyards, cemeteries, places of worship, and wherever else they are displayed. They also seem to fit into just about any decorating theme and more than a few look just as nice inside the home as out in the backyard. One such angel statue is the beautiful Brixton Abbey Angel Wall Sculpture.

The wings of this breathtaking child angel are nearly as large as herself and help to keep her in place as she carries a large shell filled with whatever bounty you provide. Put this fairy-like angel on one of your garden walls during warm weather and bring her into the house for the winter. The shell font can be filled with flower petals, potpourri, colorful stones, or other decorative items. 

Amazingly, the beautiful Brixton angel would have passed into obscurity if she hadn't been "rescued" by an antiques dealer from an old abbey. Although the name of the artist who sculpted this little angel for the abbey will probably always be a mystery, we can say that as with all of our replica pieces, close attention was paid to detail to recreate this wonderful wall sculpture.

Make Your Backyard Sing with Outdoor Garden Water Fountains

Heavenly Moments Angel Sculptural FountainThe garden should be a quiet, relaxing place but it doesn't need to be absent of sound. In fact, it can't and shouldn't be absolutely silent because the subtle sounds of nature are one of the benefits of any backyard. Birds sing from the tops of trees in spring and early summer, and chirp and chatter at other times of the year. On warm summer evenings, crickets and other insect sounds can act as natural lullabies. Even during the dead of winter, sound is still present as wind blows through the trees. The natural sounds should be there but you do yourself and the garden a favor by installing water fountains to add to the backyard symphony .

Fountains have played important roles in European plazas for hundreds of years. Locals came to them to fill their water buckets but they also enjoyed the sights and sounds of beautiful sculptures that blended water and stone. The water in a good fountain gurgles but the splashing and flow of a great fountain positively sings. These are pieces like the Cherubs at Play Sculptural fountain and the Heavenly Moments Angel Sculptural fountain. Both are as beautiful for the ears as they are for the eyes and will fill any garden with the happy sounds of laughing water.
