Three Tips for Picking Out the Best Dragon Garden Statues

Asian Dragon of the Great WallDragon decor has been around a lot longer than a lot of folks realize. Some of the oldest wall decor in the world are depictions of dragon-like creatures from the ancient kingdom of Sumer. Dragons have also made their way into paintings, and are featured as statues in ancient China, Mayan Guatemala, and Medieval Europe. Of course, we can't forget about dragon decor in modern times either. Given that any evidence of real, live dragons has yet to be discovered, this decorating theme probably features the most enduring mythical creature on the planet.

If you have yet to pick out a dragon sculpture for your garden, these three tips will help:

 

  • Don't worry about the dragon sculpture fitting in with other decor: The reason you don't really need to worry about this is because since dragons are classic statuary, there is a dragon sculpture that will fit in with any decorating theme. There are even dragon statues that are simply adorable. "Blushing Babel, the Bashful Dragon" Statue is one such statue.

Resin Garden Statues and Décor Colored for the Holidays

Large Trumpeting SoldierHoliday decorations take many forms but if we want to follow a traditional decorating theme, we need to stick to certain color schemes. Combinations of red and green are the main colors of the holiday season but hues of icy blue and silver also have their place. Decor and statues carefully painted with those cheerful colors can spice up and refine a holiday display.

The Large Trumpeting Soldier Statue ranks among the most spectacular of classic holiday decor. Put one or two of these fantastic sculptures by the front door of the home, holiday display, or place of business, and guests will feel like they are walking into a magical winter wonderland.

While the "Enchanted Portal Fairy Door Wall Sculpture" doesn't look as traditional as Trumpeting Toy Soldiers, the colors and appearance of this unique decor do fit in with winter holiday decorating themes. The two little fairies are reminiscent of elves (they are fairy folk after all), and the shades of blue, white, and red will match the other decor in the room. Put this magical decor against the wall near the tree, or above an archway or hearth, and use it in the garden when winter is over.

There's still time to save on fine holiday decorations. Enjoy free regular shipping on stunning garden statuary, unique décor, and other items in the Design Toscano collection until tomorrow, December 19th.

Buddha Outdoor Statues and More on Sale at Design Toscano

Enlightened Buddha SculptureThe art of gardening is an important aspect of several Asian cultures. In some places, gardens are far more than a green patch for growing tomatoes, peppers, and tulips. They are also places where the trees are carefully sculpted to match the vision of the gardener, where paths can form intricate patterns, and where every rock and pebble has its proper place. Pay a visit to a Japanese garden and you will probably feel as if you are strolling through a work of art.
 
Asian garden statues are also an important part of Asian-themed gardens, a big role often being played by statues of the Buddha. Such peaceful sculptures lend character and tranquility to the yard, and are reminiscent of statues that decorate the grounds of temples and gardens in China, Japan, and Thailand. Not to mention, Buddha statues are by no means limited to an Asian-themed garden. The olive hues and classic details on The Enlightened Buddha Sculpture make this fine statue an excellent addition to any garden. It also works very well as interior decor and pairs well with the easy-going lavender and green hues of The Bodh Gaya Buddha Asian Statue. Gardens in need of a large Buddha statue can't go wrong with the Giant Buddha Monument-Sized Garden Sculpture.

Bronze Garden Sculptures of Angels and Mermaids

Celestine Angel Solid Bronze Garden StatueResin garden statues are the perfect substitute for full-sized marble sculptures. Whereas a large marble statue must be commissioned and costs thousands of dollars, resin sculptures look just as good, can take just about any form, and are far more affordable. Although resin can also be made to look like bronze, there's nothing like the appearance of a statue crafted with bronze in the traditional lost wax method. Such sculptures look simply breathtaking and act as heirloom works of art. They can also put the crowning touch on gardens that already feature a fine assortment of angel sculptures and other garden statues.

The Celestine Angel Solid Bronze Garden Statue is a fantastic bronze with a beautiful antique verdigris patina. The fine details in the wings and flowing gown of this classic, realistic angel will make it one of the most stunning pieces in any collection. Show this beautiful decor in a new spring garden or display it as a prized, centerpiece statue inside the home.

Mermaids also make excellent bronze sculptures. The classic Mermaid of the Isle of Capri is modeled after similar mermaid statues that grace many a Victorian garden and European estate. This beautiful bronze mermaid acts as high quality centerpiece decor on its own, or can be used as a classy fountain for a backyard pond or the pool.

Fossils as Design Toscano Decor

Saber-toothed Tiger Skull ArtifactFossils aren't just put on display in museums. They also act as classy, fine decor for the home and office, and high quality fossils can sell for thousands of dollars. A real sculpture of a fossil makes a fine statement in any home but the high cost is a barrier to most budgets. Unless you are an expert at finding your own high quality fossils, the best solution to buying fossils for less is in our collection of high quality decor.

The Saber-toothed Tiger used to roam the open plains of North America and Europe just 10,000 years ago. Like many large mammals, although it was fairly common, it went extinct at the end of the last Ice Age. We know that this huge feline existed by merit of the fossils that were left behind. Many have been found in the La Brea tar pits in southern California, including skulls that look just like our Saber-toothed Tiger Skull Artifact. This quality resin piece is carefully and closely modeled after the actual fossil skull.

If the den would look better with a fossil that dates back a bit longer than 10,000 years, you might like the Triceratops Dinosaur Skull Fossil Statue on Museum Mount. This exquisite resin sculpture is crafted to closely resemble the actual fossilized skulls showcased in more than one museum.

Why Garden Statues Make Great Gifts for the Holidays

Fiona, the Flower Fairy SculptureGarden statuary items are essential decor for backyards, hotels, and restaurants. The right sculptures can also lend a beautiful touch to the office. However, statues for the garden can also come in handy in other situations, one of which happens to be the holiday gift giving season. The following are a few reasons why garden sculptures make excellent gifts for the winter holidays:

  • Fine statues are meant to be treasured: High quality garden sculptures are used as decor, but are also treasured by those who put them on display. A majestic stone garden angel such as the Angel of Patience Sculpture will be treasured for years.

Gift Certificates for Garden Statuary

Delightful Dancing Ducks Welcome SignGarden statues make great gifts. Although we don't usually think of an angel statue or an animal yard statue when it comes to picking out a gift, just about everyone could use a new sculpture for the yard. Most folks could also use new decor for the interior of the home, and to lend a more interesting look to the office. That said, once we start looking through a truly extensive, fine collection of garden decor, we quickly realize how much of a challenge it can be to pick out a statue or two.

Gift certificates can save time and guarantee that the lucky people on those lists will get the sculptures most suited to their decorating themes and interests. Instead of wondering which animal garden sculptures would make the best gifts, let your aunt or cousin decide between the Delightful Dancing Ducks Welcome Sign and the Tranquil Tortoise Garden Sculpture. Both are beautiful statues in their own right but might be suited to different backyards. These are also just two of more than a hundred animal statues to choose from.

They can also decide between Fiona, the Flower Fairy Sculpture and other delightful garden fairies, classic sculptures, and other high quality decor.

How to Know When to Shop for Gargoyle Gifts

Emmett the Gargoyle SculptureNovember is moving forward with steady steps to the biggest holidays of the year. If you haven't started any of your winter holiday shopping yet, each passing day is a poignant reminder of those quickly approaching dates. Sometimes, we put off shopping because we just have no idea what to get.

A gargoyle statue can be an excellent option when you need to think outside the box for holiday gifts. Emmett the Gargoyle Sculpture is a safe, easy gargoyle gift for people who enjoy the fantasy genre or have other types of garden statues. This cute little gargoyle is also easy to display in the backyard, on a back porch, or inside the home.

People with an appreciation for Medieval decor and classic statuary might like our Florentine Gargoyle Statue. This classic gargoyle is inspired by sculptures that sit on the ramparts of old European cathedrals, and also acts as wonderful Gothic decor.

Shop Design Toscano for Unique Hunting Trophy Sculptures

Alicorn Unicorn TrophyHunting trophies adorn the walls and dens of many a household where family members pursue deer, ducks, and other wild game. However, you can bet that few hunting households display the unique trophy sculptures in our collection. To do so would require a hunt that takes place in an enchanted forest, a trip back into prehistoric time, or in the very den of a dragon.

A pursuit in an old magical forest might reveal a sighting of a Unicorn. Although this pure, beautiful creature should never be hunted, there's nothing wrong with putting the Alicorn Unicorn Trophy on display. This unique sculpture entertains visitors and lends a Gothic touch to the home. 

To show the results of a far more dangerous hunt, put the Horned Dragon Skull Wall Trophy on display. The skull of this horned dragon looks so intimidating that we don't dare imagine what a live one looks like. Get this striking depiction of a dragon skull to highlight your collection of Gothic decor.

Hunters with a time machine could go after the biggest animals in history. Catching that dragon would have been a serious challenge but how would it compare to bagging a T-Rex? Get the T-Rex Dinosaur Trophy Wall Sculpture and you can thrill party guests with the wildest of hunting yarns.
