Why Garden Fairies Make Great Holiday Gifts

Summertime Fairy on a Swing StatueIf you have a gardener on your list of gift giving this year, now is the best time to help them prepare for the upcoming gardening season.  Many gardeners start planning their garden themes months ahead of time, sometimes as soon as the first frost occurs in colder climates.  While many others may give practical garden gifts, you may want to stand out from the crowd and consider a gift for your favorite gardener that is as unique as a garden fairy statue.  Garden fairies make ethereal statements that will certainly delight during the holiday season.

A garden fairy statue such as a simple summertime fairy on a swing will make the gardener on your list feel like the gardening season is just around the corner, rather than months away.  When the weather outside is frightful, breath a breath of fresh summer air into your gift that will delight any gardener.

Garden cherub statues serve the same purpose, but can also add a touch of religious sentiment to a holiday gift.  A holiday gift that comes in the form of cherubs at play will certainly add an angelic ambience to any season of gift giving.

When you are doing your holiday shopping, you don’t have to leave garden gifts to the gardening months.  Whether your favorite gardener is religious, or simply loves mystical outdoor pieces, this is the perfect time of year to purchase a holiday gift that your gardener may never purchase for themselves.

Garden of Gethsemane, Sundial Cherub and Angels

Design Toscano has religious outdoor statues for all faiths, but probably our largest and most popular collection is Christian statues.  Our artists recreate scenes from the life of Jesus with superb detail and great reverence like the Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane Statue.  Artist Carlo Bronti has created the full emotional impact of Jesus praying about the difficult task that is in front of him during that first Holy Week.  This will become a treasured item in your family.

Sun's Rays Sundial Cherub Garden StatueSome of the most spiritually fulfilling and yet totally adorable pieces are our garden cherub statues.  The cherubs are caught napping, playing in fountains and very often praying.  One lovely piece is the Sun’s Rays Sundial Cherub Garden Statue.  This cute young cherub is 2 ft. tall and is prancing in the garden.  He wants to know the time so he lifts his sundial to the sun and the heavens.  He is a Design Toscano exclusive.

Definitely it is time to look at all of our outdoor statues, such as a stone garden angel, because many of them are on sale.  We also some lovely wall sculptures depicting angels that are museum quality works of art.  One such item is the Angels of St. Petersburg Cathedral Wall Sculpture which is two feet wide and over a foot tall.  This is a graceful and spiritual replica of the carving on the cathedral in Russia with the cross in the center and well detailed angels looking toward it on a sculpted piece in an egg shape.

Vampire Bats, Winged Skeleton and a Gargoyle

Crescent moon Vampire Bats Metal WeathervaneDesign Toscano is well known for its many varied sculptures for outside from Greek gods to charming dragons.  Of course we continue this tradition with our Halloween themed outdoor sculptures of which the Crescent Moon Vampire Bats Metal Weathervane: Garden Stake is a fine example.  Bats, bats and more bats are surrounding the crescent moon on this weathervane which can be set as a weathervane or as a garden stake.  It is made of aluminum for its rust free nature, but finished in a dark and stormy black.

Babble, The Gothic Gargoyle StatueThis is not the time of year to be thinking of our adorable garden cherub statues (although they are lovely).  Now you need to delve into our somewhat darker winged sculptures like the Kiss of Death Winged Skeleton Statue. The story depicted here, inspired by a 1930’s statue from Barcelona, is a lovely maiden kneeling down, but alas her suitor is a bony, winged skeleton giving the kiss of death. 

We try to always put a little fun and cuteness into many of our statues like our extremely cute tortoise sculpture.  If you thought we couldn’t put some fun into a gargoyle, then you will be surprised when you see the slightly goofy Babble, the Gothic Gargoyle Sculpture.  This gargoyle is actually smiling, although showing some sharp teeth, and is about a foot tall.  He won’t scare the kids and makes a great addition to Halloween décor.

BROWSE THESE ITEMS FOR THE HALLOWEEN SPOOKTACULAR SALE SEPT. 23 THROUGH SEPT. 26!

The Vampire Demon Tombstone StatueDesign Toscano is always pleased that customers find items such as our large Buddha statue bring tranquility and peace to their gardens, but is that what you want for Halloween, no!  This Halloween you might want to consider The Vampire Demon Tombstone Statue that will bring a little of the sinister and scary to your garden.  The demon with his wide wings is depicted above a tombstone in a Gothic style and is almost 2 ft. tall.  

Everyone loves our garden cherub statues as they are adorable and so spiritual.  At Halloween, though, you want to place some real spirits in your yard and what is better than The Dweller Below Garden Sculpture. Peeking his head up in your garden is some sort of ghoul, boogeyman or spirit and certainly is in just the right place at this time of year.  You can almost imagine him yelling “BOOGITY!”

Angels, Cherubs and an Unusual Clock

Our customers are collectors of almost everything that you can imagine and we have all that and more in our Basil Street Gallery with new items just arriving.  Anyone in love with trains and that love to collect train items will be thrilled with the All Aboard Locomotive Train Wall Clock.  Coming through the wall, or so it appears, is an old fashioned train engine done in great detail, hand painted in ebony and faux gold.  The center of the locomotive is a marvelous clock with roman numerals and quartz movement.  This is a great piece.

Angel of Peace Bonded Natural Marble StatueThe Design Toscano collection of angels is marvelous and spiritual, whether they are a stone garden angel or a statue of peace that can be placed on a table.  This angel is called the Angel of Peace Bonded Natural Marble Statue.  The angel is a replica of one that was created after World War I.  She holds a laurel wreath to the heavens and is standing on a sphere of the earth, all done in wonderful detail in bonded natural marble.   What better time for this spiritual symbol of peace.

As much as we all love our various angels, we truly adore our garden cherub statues.  We have a piece that is not only a statue, but a fountain, the Cherubs at Play Sculptural Fountain.  The fountain is over four feet tall and consists of a water urn which flows into a larger water fount.  The fun little finely sculpted cherubs are scampering all over the urn just wanting to play in the water.

Indoor Sumo Statue, Cherub and Angel

We have a very popular sumo wrestler in our collection of Japanese garden statues and now we want to let you know that you can bring the sumo magic inside with our Basho the Sumo Wrestler Sculpture Glass-Topped Table.  Like our outdoor statue of Basho, he is dressed in only his wrestling belt and has his hair tied back in traditional fashion, to create the legs of the table he is bent over in fighting stance.  On his back, there is a 3/8” glass top so that all of Basho’s wonder can be seen.

Angel from the Ashes Wall SculptureEvery garden can be enlivened with the addition of one of our garden cherub statues which are cute and angelic at the same time.  One favorite is the Cherub’s Bouquet Statue which stands over a foot tall.  The cherub with its detailed wings is cast in a white finish, but the flowers pop in a beautiful hand painted blue.  What a treat this is.

Our stone garden angel statues make majestic statements to the heavens as they stand and reach towards the sky.  However, we have some wonderful stone angels on wall plaques also such as the Angel from the Ashes Wall Sculpture.  The wall sculpture is a replica of a Victorian angel, done in fine detail with large wings and her hands together in prayer.  The piece would be excellent in a meditation garden.

Fairies and Cherubs

We have several garden fairies and all of them brighten up your garden and are adorable.  Some people like to create a Victorian theme in their gardens and if that is the case then look no further than our lovely Ella, the Littlest Flower Fairy Statue.  Flower fairies are a tradition in Victorian gardens and Ella is a most adorable one standing over a foot tall.  She is hand painted by the artist in the paler colors of the Victorian time and is beautiful and cute at the same time.

Sacred Heart of Jesus Italian-Style Garden StatueOur garden cherub statues are also adorable, but they have a slightly more spiritual bent with a touch of heaven in their creation.  The Life’s Mysteries Cherub Statue invokes the wonder of all that is in the universe and heaven to be discovered.  The cherub is sculpted crouched down to inspect an interesting snail.  His wings are well detailed and he is a questioning spiritual being.

The Design Toscano collection of religious outdoor statues is large and from many different faiths.  Some of our most reverent statues are from the Christian faith and create a sense of love and peace in your yard.  One such is the Sacred Heart of Jesus Italian Style Garden Statue.  This statue is replica of one from Italy done at the turn of the century and is very well known to many around the world as the definitive representation of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

The RCA Dog and Stallions on the Wall

Nipper, the RCA Dog StatueDesign Toscano is all about sculptures for outside.  If you drive through your neighborhood and peer into neighbors’ yards, you will see our pieces outdoors on almost every block and the reason for this is that they are sculptured in fine detail and also our artists have an eye for the unusual. Nipper, the RCA Dog Statue is a fine example of this.  Many people remember this dog tilting his ear to hear his master voice over a gramophone and see this as a great piece of memorabilia.  Others don’t remember the trademark, but do love this statue as a well detailed adorable pup and a great addition to the garden.

When one is looking for something totally adorable and undeniably cute, they need to look at our collection of garden cherub statues.  One of these is the In Nature’s Hands Baby Cherub Angel Statue.  This sculpture is about the birth of each new season of the year.  The baby’s head is shown held in nature’s hands and surrounded with angel wings.

Our artists create animals that are second to none in their fine detail and life like musculature such as our bold tiger sculpture.  Now they have created a wall piece that horse lovers will adore and all animal lovers will want to have.  This is the Stallion Stampede Wild Horse Wall Sculpture depicting three wild stallions with their manes flying and heads rearing.  The piece is 30” wide and is done in a classic relief style.

Cherubs and Other Beautiful Sculpture

Testing the Waters Cherub SculptureAll of these items are part of our wonderful sale.

Angels and fairies are always part of any beautiful garden and of course we have many wonderful garden cherub statues.  Testing the Waters Cherub Sculpture is a finely detailed sculpture of an adorable cherub with small wings in an exquisite sea shell.  This little cherub is wondering if he should just put his toe in the water but isn’t quite sure.  He’s adorable.

Many of our garden statues are careful sculptures of people that are look almost alive and have great character to their faces like some of our Japanese garden statues.  One statue that is done with a great deal of character is the Nature’s Wanderer Sculpture  who looks almost like a wizard with a smile on his face and his toes curled up.  He is wearing a green cloak that has a peak at the top and looks to be a wise old man of nature.  He would help your garden grow.

We have tables of many shapes and sizes in our Egyptian tables collection and now many of them are on sale.  One table that is an excellent size is our Luxor Sculptural Glass Topped Table which is a great coffee table.  The base of this table is the sarcophagus of King Tut, hand painted and very detailed.  This way you will have a mummy in your living room.

Asian Art and Gargoyle Figurines

Japanese garden statues and other Asian pieces of art are a large part of the beautiful décor pieces that we have at Design Toscano.  The Asian theme has been very popular for many years because it is a wonderfully serene décor.  A lovely piece that we have is our large Forbidden City: Chinese Dragon Grand-Scale Urn Statue which is four and a half feet tall made to replicate the porcelain urns of Ancient China.  The urn is done in red, a “lucky” color, and there is a detailed golden dragon entwined around it.

Leap Froggin Playing Boys Garden StatueSo many of our garden statues are childlike and innocent, such as our garden fairy statues, our cherubs and of course our statues of children.   What else would children be doing in the yard other than playing and our artists have captured many of them doing just that.  One of the best of these is the Leapfroggin Playing Boys Garden Statue.  Here we have two young boys sculpted in lifelike detail as they play leapfrog in a sculpture taken from a 1915 classic and done in a bronze finish.  This is just plain fun.

Every yard and home needs a gargoyle somewhere in the décor and we have the gargoyle figurines for you to choose from.  There is nothing better than the Ball-and-Chain Gothic Dungeon Gargoyle Statue.  He sits chained to a castle turret and does not look happy and yet he’s charming.

Take a Nap in Your Garden

Precious Slumber Baby Angel Bonded Marble StatueYour outdoor space is a place for relaxing, perhaps putting up a hammock and taking a nap.  We have joyful little creatures that will also look adorable napping in your garden such as this one in our marble busts for sale section.  It is the Precious Slumber Baby Angel Bonded Marble Statue and is on sale at a great price.  These little cherubs are fast asleep, safe from everything surrounded by angel's wings. 

While our garden statues gnomes are usually a pretty active bunch either gardening or doing some other outdoor activity, we do have a few slackers in the bunch.  For the sleepy side of your Afternoon Nap Angel Sculpturegarden you might enjoy Snoozing Booker the Garden Gnome Statue.  He is lucky that he is smaller than a mushroom so that he can lean up against it and take a nap since reading his book must have tired him out.

Angels always seem to be falling asleep in the garden; it must be the smell of the flowers and the warmth of the sunlight.  We have another one in our stone garden angel collection.  This is the Afternoon Nap Angel Sculpture where the little angel has fallen asleep in a basket of flowers leaning his head on his wing.

Intriguingly Different Sculpture

There is always something different and out of the ordinary to be seen at Design Toscano and a large variety to choose from.  We have many Greek garden statues from the ordinary replicas and some you may have never seen before.  One of these would possibly be our Teucer Quality Lost Wax Bronze Statue: 1881.  This amazing bronze statue of the Greek archer, Teucer, stands atop a black solid marble base and the lines of the piece are as smooth as an arrow shot from his bow.

The Contortionist Skeleton Side TableOur inventory is highly blessed with a great variety of stone garden angel, so many serene, some playful and the always adorable cherubs to bring peace and cheer to any garden.  One of the cutest of our cherub sculptures is the Balancing a Dream cherub Garden Statue.  This sweet little angel has fallen asleep with its head on its arms and is resting in a seated position with its little rear hanging over a bit and its toes all curled up.  This angel could rest quietly anywhere in your outdoor space.

We are happy to present our Gothic tables as some of the more unusual pieces in our collection.  These tables, some glass-topped and others of fine wood, often depict creatures and places not seen in the ordinary living room table.  An example of this is The Contortionist Skeleton Side Table.  Here we have a wonderful skeleton lying on his side balancing the spacious glass top with his knees.  You might be the first in your neighborhood to have one of these.

Women of Marble

Women have often been the object of sculpture and certainly beautiful ones at that.  The Greek goddesses have all been memorialized, there are many sculptures of the Madonna and of course Design Toscano has many of these and some lesser known statues as well.  In the stone garden angel category we have beautiful angels and other memorials.  There are Celtic crosses but if you don't want to use just the cross as décor, yet want a true Celtic feel, the Celtic Warior Princess statue would be a great solution.  It consists of a Celtic cross with a colorful dragon wrapped around it and kneeling in front is a beautiful woman warrior, with sword in hand ready to defend the land.

Venus of Arles SculptureWe stock many beautiful statues of the Madonna in many poses, praying, with the Infant, standing serenely and many more for you to choose from.  An interesting one is the Madonna of the Harpies Bonded Marble Statue which is currently on sale in our marble busts for sale section.  The statue is of the Madonna and Child surrounded by two adoring cherubs.  It is peaceful and gentle filled with love for children.

Venus, of course, has been a topic for many artists and sculptors over the centuries as she is known as the most beautiful woman in the world in the classical sense.  We have a two foot statue of Venus in our Basil Street Gallery that could be displayed anywhere as a piece of fine art. This piece is the Venus of Arles Sculpture a marvelous replica of the original which is displayed in the Louvre in Paris.

Greek Gods in Your Yard

Our company does not shirk when it comes to portraying the ancient Greeks and we have several within our marble busts for sale area.  The Greek gods look marvelous when they are well done in detailed sculpture much as if most of their day is spent at the gym.  The Pan, Greek God of the Forest Statueleader of the gods is Zeus and we have Zeus, King of the Greek Gods Bonded Marble Statue on sale right now.  He carries a lightning bolt and keeps all the other Greek statues and gods in the neighborhood in line.

Male Greek garden statues need to be strong, powerful and beautiful and that certainly describes the Farnese Hercules Statue.  Our muscular Hercules is depicted as he rests after one of his strenuous quests in this replica of the famous statue that was made for the emperor Caracalla.  Don't let your male friends get too jealous of him.

"Delightful" is how our smaller joyful statues have been described, especially our garden cherub statues.  Another Greek god statue that we present is the equally delightful Pan, Greek God of the Forest Statue.  Pan is an adorable bronze statue playing his famous flute and entertaining all the forest animals.
