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.

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.

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.

Realistic Dragon Garden Statues

Sir Gawain's Dragon SculptureDragons might be creatures of legend but more than one person has wondered if they was a time when dragons did indeed roam the land. The belief in dragons is supported by the presence of similar, scaled beasts in a variety of cultures from different times and places. However, since a fossil of a dragon has yet to be found, their actual existence seems far from likely. Nevertheless, that hasn't stopped scholars from trying to find explanations for sculptures, artwork, and tales that depict dragons from ancient Babylon, China, and Europe.  

Tales and legends of dragons may have been inspired by fossils of dinosaurs, might stem from interactions with large reptiles, or maybe even come from other unknown creatures from the distant past. Some also say that dragons are just metaphors but whatever their origin, legends of dragons endure to this day. We can see them in several films, they still make regular appearances in novels, and life-like dragon decor can show up in the backyard. One such realistic depiction of a dragon is the Sir Gawain's Dragon Sculpture. This fantastic, highly detailed dragon looks as if it is clawing its way into the garden! You also get the attention of garden guests with the realistic, two foot plus long Stoker's Moors Dragon Skull Statue.

Enchanting Resin Garden Statues of Mermaids and Other Extraordinary Creatures

Daydreaming Mermaid of Langeline CoveMythical creatures are, by definition, impossible to encounter outside of the realm of imagination. They can be downright common in novels and films that pertain to the fantasy genre but few of us claim to have ever actually seen such creatures as dragons, gargoyles, gnomes, or unicorns. Do that and the general populace is probably going to question your sanity. That said, there is one physical place where extraordinary creatures are celebrated.

That special place is the garden. Although the mermaids, fairies, and other enchanting creatures that occur there aren't going to come to life, beautifully detailed statues of those creatures always lend an enchanting look to the garden. The Daydreaming Mermaid of Langeline Cove Statue is a classic depiction of a Sea Siren with realistic, life-like features. This mermaid looks best when displayed next to the pool, a pond, or a garden fountain.

Our daydreaming mermaid looks even better when complemented with the equally enchanting Mermaid of Langeline Cove Wall Sculpture. This lovely, vibrant mermaid is fantastic wall decor for both the garden and the home interior.

Mermaids are indeed extraordinary and the Ocean's Little Treasure Mermaid Statue is downright adorable but they aren't the only unique creatures in our collection. Browse our selection of extraordinary statues to find sculptures of dinosaurs, hobgoblins, and a realistic Bigfoot statue.

Cute Garden Fairies for the Home

British Reading Fairy Garden StatueFairy statues became popular garden decor during the 19th century, especially in Victorian English gardens. Most were similar to classic sculptures like the British Reading Fairy Garden Statue although our beautiful Pondering Fairy of Essex would have also looked right at home in the most distinguished of Victorian gardens. Such classic fairy sculptures continue to be popular decor in modern gardens but many of us also like to decorate with fairies that are simply adorable. Such fairies make cheerful garden decor during the summer and charming interior decor when the weather turns cold.

The Rose Garden Fairy Statues are a trio of cute and innocent fairies that would help with the watering and weeding of plants if they could. Instead, they help by lending an adorable look wherever they are put on display. Put these beautiful little statues next to your favorite June flowerbed and next to the potted plants on the windowsill from November to May.

Ella, the Littlest Flower Fairy Statue is another lovely fairy. Little Ella provides a cute, colorful touch to every backyard and cheers up the inside of the home during the dark, cold winter nights. Complement Ella with the exquisite Taking Flight Fairy Statue.

Buy $75 or more of fairy statues, garden statuary, and other Design Toscano decor today, October 26th, and pay nothing for regular shipping.

How to Save on Garden Décor with a European Flair

Staverden Castle PeacockThere's a common conundrum associated with shopping for resin garden statues at local shopping plazas.

Not to mention, there isn't much variety to choose from.

However, that conundrum disappears when shopping for garden statues and other decor at the Design Toscano site.

Enhance Backyard Inspiration with a Praying Garden Angel Statue

Praying Basilica Angel StatueThe garden is a place where we go to get away from it all. Whether we use that personal sanctuary for parties, exercise, growing vegetables, or all of the above, it's a wonderful place for inspiration. We need such places to help us clear the daily clutter from the mind and focus on the positive. Garden statuary can help in this regard and sculptures of angels can be especially suitable for this purpose.

Statues of angels in prayer remind us to reflect on the great fortune of having a healthy mind and body, and on all of the good things life. If you are inclined to meditate or pray, such angel statues can also act as direct inspiration and motivation to get in touch with the spiritual aspect of life and to strengthen beliefs.
