Gargoyles in the Garden, Greenmen on the Trees, Oh My!

The Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyle Sculptures Set - LargeThere are many ways to decorate the garden. Plant enough flowers and prune the vegetation and the backyard becomes filled with natural decor. Put several stone garden angels and replicas of breathtaking classic garden statues on display and your green space will begin to resemble an authentic Victorian garden. Buddha statues and other Asian-themed sculptures can turn a generic backyard into a fantastic Chinese or Japanese themed garden, and the right set of animal garden statues will add a wild, natural touch to even the most urban of yards. As exciting as these garden decorating ideas sound, they still might not be very appealing to fans of Gothic decor. Fortunately, when you shop at Design Toscano for backyard statuary, there are plenty of sculptures that give the backyard a wonderfully Gothic, Druidic, or mystical touch.

Gargoyles can be used to flank the entranceway to the garden or back door to the home with absolutely regal results. With its open fanged mouth, glaring eyes, and crouched posture, the Argos Sentinel Statue is perfect for this purpose. The fun Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyle Sculptures, on the other hand, look more at home guarding a bed of flowers.

Another essential statue for a Gothic-themed garden is the greenman sculpture. These mystical statues have been used in Europe for hundreds of years and fantastic decor such as the Oak King Wall Sculpture continue to add a mysterious, magical touch touch to modern day gardens.

Find the most realistic Greenman statues, gargoyles, and Gothic garden statuary at Design Toscano.

Entertain Garden Guests with Fantastic Gargoyle Figurines

Legend of the Cambridge Hopping Gargoyle SculptureWe use garden statuary for a number of reasons. A beautiful stone garden angel can transform an ordinary backyard into a classic place of peace. Realistic animal garden statues add a wild, beautiful touch to a backyard with carefully crafted details. Resin garden statues can also be used to augment the personality of your personal green space while reflecting your interest in the fantasy genre, a belief system, or love of the outdoors. Statuary can of course also be used to entertain guests and certain gargoyle statues accomplish this in a frighteningly easy manner.

Garden guests won't help but notice the Legend of the Cambridge Hopping Gargoyle Statue. The sly grin on the devilish face of this modern gargoyle shows that it is clearly up to no good. Resting on its haunches, it looks ready to hop through your yard on large, clawed feet, and take flight with long, bat-like wings. You can further entertain your guests by telling them that this gargoyle statue is inspired by unexplained sets of strange, hopping  gargoyle-like prints that have shown up around Cambridge, England on several occasions.

Beelzebub, the Prince of Demons Gargoyle Statue, is another sculpture destined to be a topic of conversation. As this detailed gargoyle sits atop a Gothic plinth, it ponders its next move with an evil grin.

Gargoyle Garden Statues that Climb the Walls of Your Abode

Gargoyle Demon on the Loose Wall SculptureGargoyles are dramatic decor no matter where they are displayed but they seem to do best when perched atop a castle wall or when leering down at folks who are walking in and out of a Gothic cathedral. Such situations were the first places where European gargoyles were used as decor and they still tend to look more impressive when crouched up on top of a parapet than when sitting on the ground. Although sculptures like the Legend of Cambridge Hopping Gargoyle look intimidating no matter where you put them, most winged gargoyles look right at home when perched on top of a pedestal.

To reach those high places they love, gargoyles could simply use their bat-like wings and fly but if the Gargoyle Demon on the Loose Sculpture is any indication, it appears that some prefer to creep up the walls of castles, churches, and homes like slinking miniature dragons. This frightening Medieval gargoyle shows that he is up to no good with an intriguing, evil grin. Pair it with the unique Catgoyle on the Loose Sculpture for garden wall decor that will give guests something to talk about! 

However, no gargoyle wall decor theme would be complete without Gaston the Climbing Gargoyle. Sculpted with eerie, realistic details, Gaston is bound to be one of more intimidating garden statuary items in your collection.

Save on fantastic gargoyle figurines and hundreds of high quality decor for garden, home, and business at Design Toscano.

Dragon Statues for Spring and Summer

Ranier, the Sculptural Dragon RainspoutSpring is here and it's time to redecorate the garden. This year, why not decorate the backyard with a different theme? Instead of putting out the usual selection of angel statues and garden gnomes, try decorating the backyard with a couple of dragons. They don't have to replace the rest of your decor, but by putting a dragon statue on display, you show your appreciation for the fantasy genre while giving the garden a unique, dramatic touch. 

Get your backyard ready for the warm days of spring and summer with dragon sculptures like Ranier, the Sculptural Dragon Rainspout. Put this Medieval-themed functional dragon sculpture on the end of a gutter to help channel water away from the house. This impressive dragon statue is designed to look as if Ranier is breathing fire every time it rains.

To help turn your backyard into a place of enchantment, put Dragon-Orb sculptures on display such as Mayze, the Dragon Protector of the Orb and Sir Sagremor's Dragon Statue with Orb. Mayze shows that the fantasy genre is that much more magical when humor is thrown into the mix. Poor Mayze seems to be more interested in taking a nap on top of the orb rather than ferociously protecting it and thus makes for one of the most adorable little dragon statues you will ever see. Sir Sagremor's dragon isn't exactly cute but he makes up for it with realistic, eye-catching details.

The Function and Symbolism of Gargoyle Figurines

Scatheus, Guardian of the Shadows Gargoyle SculptureThe gargoyle is one of the more interesting and intriguing types of decor. Unlike animal garden sculptures that show realistic depictions of real animals such as lions and bears, the typical gargoyle statue shows a mythical, intimidating monster. Their appearance couldn't really be described as being pleasant in any way so it seems rather odd that they have been a popular form of garden statuary for centuries. However, long before they made their way into gardens, gargoyles were a common feature on structures for thousands of years. Gargoyles in the form of lions can be seen on ancient Egyptian structures and the ancient Greeks used gargoyles with leering faces on many of their temples. Although those gargoyles were used as sculptural decor, their main function was to divert water off of roofs.

During the Middle Ages in Europe, gargoyles had the same function but this was combined with a lot more symbolism. Gargoyles began to take on more frightening forms to scare off any evil spirits that might want to enter a castle or church as well as to remind church goers that the devil and his minions were always watching and waiting to tempt the unwary. In present times, we use gargoyles in the garden and on our houses because they are simply interesting, unique decor. Whether you display a cute statue like Emmett the Gargoyle or a masterpiece of terror like Scatheus, Guardian of the Shadows, a gargoyle in the garden provides a dramatic touch.

Buy the best in gargoyle sculptures from today until April 11th and enjoy a 20% discount as part of our Pre-Season Garden Statue Sale!

Gargoyle Figurines with a Modern Touch

Socrates, the Gargoyle Thinker StatueGargoyles are a type of decor that have been around for a long time. Although we associate gargoyles with the Middle Ages, various cultures have been putting sculptures of scary creatures on sacred places for thousands of years. The dragons of Babylonia may not look like the gargoyles that decorate French Gothic cathedrals but they were probably likewise used to intimidate and scare off evil spirits. In modern times, we might not expect gargoyles to protect the home from evil, but that doesn't change their status as unique, mystical decor.

Modern gargoyle statues still resemble their classic Medieval predecessors but some tend to show more detail and display more human-like characteristics. One such classic gargoyle with a modern touch is Goliath the Gargoyle. Goliath's fangs and muscles are big even by gargoyle standards but he seems to be more occupied with napping than scaring off intruders. This big, sleeping gargoyle is right at home when displayed on top of a television, book case, or garden wall.

Gargoyles aren't typically known for their intelligence but Socrates, the Gargoyle Thinker breaks that stereotype by showing that these medieval monsters are capable of deep thoughts. Whether he is thinking about the role of the gargoyle in an increasingly technological world, or just who to eat next, Socrates stuns with realistic, life-like details.

Resin Garden Statues as Gifts

Balancing a Dream Cherub Garden StatueGarden statuary doesn't have to be limited to your own decorating projects. Buy statues and sculptures of gnomes, fairies, and other subjects for friends and family and you might be surprised at how much they like such a gift. Resin statues and sculptures make for excellent gift items in part because people don't usually get them for a birthday or other occasion. They represent a fun change from the status quo while providing loved ones with long-lasting, beautiful decor.

Of course, you have to make sure that the sculptures you pick out will also be appreciated and loved by the person you are giving them to. For example, you probably don't want to pick out a gargoyle statue for someone who never watches horror films and has no interest in the fantasy genre. He or she probably won't appreciate even the best of gargoyle gifts so it's better to stick to something like animal garden statues or a beautiful stone garden angel. There are dozens of detailed animal sculptures to choose from and we have a veritable host of angels suited for every taste and garden.

Order these resin garden statue gifts and anything else on our site between now and February 14th and get 20% off the regular price.
