A Gargoyle Sculpture for Your Place of Business

Emmett the GargoyleGargoyles have come a long way from being scary, intimidating sculptures on Medieval churches and castles. While many still have similar, intimidating features, nowadays, they are used more for entertainment and as unique garden statuary than sculptures meant to frighten away any bad spirits and evil doers. Since gargoyles provoke conversation, certain gargoyle sculptures can also work well as decor for a business.

Silas the Sentry Gargoyle will add character to bars, restaurants, and bookstores. He sports the same set of fangs, sinewy frame, and claws as other gargoyles, and takes in his surroundings with a curious look on his face.

Sleepy Goliath the Gargoyle works well as unique decor for a bookstore, coffee shop, or any number of businesses. Clients and customers will certainly inspect the details on this large, snoozing gargoyle. After checking out Goliath, you can put a smile on their faces with the Detest the Rest Gargoyle. "Detest" would rather be left alone and the look on his face is a familiar one for those of us who know people who have the occasional grumpy morning.

Of course, you could also add adorable gargoyle decor to the garden with cute Emmett the Gargoyle Sculpture. This littlest of gargoyles can be charming decor in a place of business, inside the home, and out in the garden.

Enjoy a 20% discount on gargoyle figurines and dragons until tomorrow, July 11th.

A Great Deal on a Gargoyle Statue

Talysus the Terrible Gargoyle StatueThose of us who love to spend time in the garden also love to find great deals on garden statuary. Of course, a "great deal" doesn't mean average or cheap statues that cost less because they look bad or are going to fall apart after a few months. No, "great deals on garden statues" translates to high quality, unique garden sculptures that cost much less than expected. Those would also be statues from our collection, including several excellent gargoyle figurines.

Talysus the Terrible Gargoyle Statue is one such sculpture. This laughing gargoyle is on sale and blends a menacing Gothic grin and more modern muscled appearance for fantastic, entertaining results. A sphere-topped plinth for a perch completes the fantasy-flavored look of this unique statue.

Another fine deal on gargoyle statues can be found with the Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyle Sculptures Set. These fun little gargoyles might not look as frightening as classic-themed gargoyles similar to the stone beasts that sit on the ramparts of old castles but they make up for it with a hilarious, adorable appearance. These cute little creatures will look right at home in a flowerbed, make excellent, unique gifts, and will put a smile on the face of any garden guest. Not to mention, they are also available for a great, low price.

Boden Gargoyle SentinelGargoyle garden statues lend a classic look to any yard.

We have a large selection of gargoyles for every taste that are also available for excellent prices.

The Boden Gargoyle Sentinel might be better suited for people who enjoy majestic gargoyles designed to make a big impression on garden guests.

Fantastic Flying Resin Garden Statues

Wingspan Seagull StatueGarden statuary has become much more than classic sculptures, angel statues, and gargoyle figurines. Thanks to advances in resin technologies, we can also decorate the yard with beautiful, realistic animal garden sculptures, exquisite garden fountains, and a host of unique statuary for a fraction of the cost associated with marble and other sculpting mediums. Statuary can also be engineered to hang from trees and even look as if it's flying through the backyard. 

What? Flying garden statues? Yes, decor like the incredible Prehistoric Pteranodon Dinosaur Statue can be hung from trees or rafters to help it "fly" through the yard or place of business on wings that span ten feet. Put this incredible garden sculpture on display in one corner of the yard and the equally life-like Pteranodon Scaled Dinosaur Statue in another part of the backyard for full flying effect.

If the garden or home would look better with a flying sculpture of a modern-day animal, you might like our Wingspan Seagull Statue. This realistic statue of a gull has a big, six foot wingspan, and can be hung from a tree in the backyard or inside the home. It also looks great when displayed near a pool.

Three Reasons to Put Gargoyle Figurines in the Garden

Florentine GargoyleWe all have our favorite garden statuary items. Some of us put the focus on garden fairies because we love their blend of detailed beauty, nature, and magic. Others stick to replicas of stunning antique sculptures, and some people prefer to decorate the yard with an animal yard statue or two. However, no matter what you might prefer in terms of statues or decorating themes, a gargoyle statue will make the backyard look better. The following are three reasons why this is the case:

  • Gargoyles are in a class of their own: Created to intimidate evil spirits and frighten Medieval peasants, gargoyles rank among the more unique of sculptures. Put something like the Florentine Gargoyle Statue on display and you will have the most unique backyard on the block.

 

  • Gargoyles are conversation pieces: Unique statuary is always going to spark conversation, and gargoyles are no exception. Not only will the Argos Gargoyle Sentinel Statue protect the garden, but it will also entertain guests and be the talk of your summer party guests.

A Gargoyle Sculpture to Guard the Backyard

Leo the Laughing GargoyleGargoyles have been around for ages. In ancient times, sculptures of gargoyle like creatures and symbols were sometimes placed on or near sacred sites to act as a form of spiritual protection. That belief continued in Europe during the Middle Ages with typical, fanged gargoyles being placed on Gothic cathedrals and castles. Similar gargoyles are used to this day to decorate gardens and home interior. Due to their classic, protective appearance, a quality gargoyle statue can look good in any type of garden.

If your backyard could still use a gargoyle or two, it might be time to buy one of our detailed gargoyle sculptures. Leo the Laughing Gargoyle Statue is one of the more cheerful gargoyles in our collection. This unique canine-gargoyle hybrid will be a hit at parties whether you put it on display inside the home or in the garden.

For a more intimidating gargoyle, we have several wickedly wonderful sculptures in our collection to choose from. The Castle Gate Gargoyle Statue is a classic, old time winged beast that looks very similar to statues on the walls of old Medieval keeps. The Abbadon Gargoyle Statue is an even more intimidating, highly detailed gargoyle that perches on top of a Celtic cube.

How to Know When to Buy Dragon Garden Statues

Stoker's Moors Dragon Skull StatueNo matter how big or small a collection of  resin garden statues may be, there always comes a time to buy more garden statuary. We might want to change the overall decorating theme and lack the right type of statues, or we might just feel like putting something new on display. The following three reasons show when it might be time to buy a few dragon sculptures:

  • The backyard could use an infusion of Gothic Decor: Dragon statues are classic but they will also fit into any Gothic decorating theme. Whether you have a backyard with an emphasis on the creepiest of sculptures or one that pays homage to Gothic architecture, dragon sculptures fill an essential niche.
  • The gargoyles look lonely: In other words, if you already have three or more gargoyle statues but no dragons, it's time to balance that Gothic display with a dragon or two. You could go for a basic scaled beast like Desmond the Dragon Statue or just put a dragon skull in a flowerbed.
  • The house could use a unique rainspout: One of the funny things about dragon sculptures is that they don't just have to sit around and proudly show a ferocious, enchanting demeanor. They can also be used as rain spouts and look great when used for that function! Try Ranier, the Sculptural Dragon Rainspout.

Fantastic Indoor Dragon Garden Statues

"Dragon Minions of Darkness" StatuesDragons have enchanted, frightened, and intrigued people for thousands of years. While no one really knows how legends of dragons originated, that doesn't stop us from continuing to love stories of massive, fire-breathing beasts to this day. We help keep those stories alive in part, by using exquisite dragon decor in the garden. A dragon skull or a statue of a scaled Medieval beast rising out of the ground makes for quite the fantasy-inspired statement but there is also dragon decor for the home interior.

Two of the most enchanting dragon statues for the inside of the home are the Dragon Minions of Darkness. Both of these statues feature classic winged dragons replete with sharp fangs and claws. A further touch of realism is provided with bright, shining hues of emerald green, ruby red, silver, and brilliant gold. In most stories, dragons are not dull, feeble minded monsters but display a cunning mind as sharp as their massive claws, and sport shining natural, brightly colored suits of armor. Artist Liam Manchester has managed to capture just that essence with these fine dragon sculptures and adds another dramatic touch by placing them more than a foot and a half above their stone-shaped mounts. Put these stunning dragon statues on display to enthrall all of your fantasy fan guests.

Enjoy 20% off these fine dragons, Medieval home decor, all of our detailed gargoyle figurines, and everything else on the Design Toscano site when purchased by December 31st.

Merry Christmas from Design Toscano!

Ascending Angel SculptureToday is December 25th and for kids of all ages, this is the biggest day of the year. Merry Christmas from all of us at Design Toscano and Happy New Year! We hope that 2013 was a wonderful year for all of you and that 2014 is filled with success, peace, and happiness. It's still winter but that means there's plenty of time to think about new garden statues for the backyard, home, and business. They might come in the form of fantastic animal garden sculptures like the Catch of the Day Grand Bear Sculpture and adorable animal garden statues such as the Yorkshire Lambs. Both of these animal statues demonstrate the realism and quality shown by all of our animal sculptures including classic Victorian style items such as the Regal Lion Sentinel of Grisham Manor.

If the backyard could use a new angel, the Ascending Angel Statue is one of our more dramatic items while the Praying Basilica Angel Statue captures the classic beauty of a devout, detailed angel with flowing locks, gown, and big feathered wings. If gargoyle figurines are more to your liking, we have sculptures of those intimidating creatures to meet just about every taste. The powerful Large Florentine Gargoyle Statue is one of the more classic gargoyles in our collection while little Emmet the Gargoyle wins awards for being the cutest creature on the block.

Dragon and Gargoyle Bronze Garden Sculptures

Winged Gargoyle of Naples Solid Bronze Garden Statue - SmallSome folks might stick to garden gnomes and an angel statue or two when it comes to backyard decor but some of us would rather decorate the yard with gargoyle figurines and majestic sculptures of dragons. Neither decorating theme is better than the other because it all comes down to a matter of personal preference. Gnomes tend to be cute while gargoyles are by nature, somewhat more intimidating. However, they are also wonderful, classic decor. Since gargoyles can be found on the ramparts of castles and some of the world's most majestic Gothic cathedrals, you could also say that those winged monsters are sort of like royalty when it comes to garden decor.

Given their special status, it's only logical that we offer dragon and gargoyle sculptures in bronze. This classic, beautiful metal alloy was a favored sculpting medium for the ancient Greeks and continues to be used by professional artists to this day. The color, texture, and durability of bronze can help turn a good quality statue into a masterpiece. Both of our bronze dragon and gargoyle sculptures fall into this category and make a prize addition to distinguished gardens of any home and business. The Asian Dragon with Power Orb is a fantastic, enchanting statue that can also be used as a fountain while the Winged Gargoyle of Naples makes for an exceptional welcoming sculpture for the backyard.

Find these and other fine bronze sculptures at Design Toscano.

Young Sweethearts: Kissing Children Garden Statue

Save on New Gothic Décor and More at Design Toscano

Gothic Temptress StatuesGothic decorations are more than gargoyle figurines and breathtaking dragon sculptures for the garden. Those statues are certainly magnificent but Gothic decor also includes beautiful wall decor, statuettes, and functional items. We update our Gothic collection with new items on a regular basis including decor that could be classified as Gothic, Medieval, or even Celtic. The Celtic Knotwork Tiffany-Style Stained Glass Window is one such piece. This beautiful stained glass piece combines the elegant patterns of the Celtic art form with a Gothic arch and warm red, yellow, and silver hues.

The Spirit Guide Angel Statue is just one of several striking statuettes in our collection. This fine piece was created by artist Anne Stokes and shows a striking, detailed angel with majestic wings and has a Celtic touch. Although this fine indoor decor displays the same type of enchanting mystery as many other Gothic items, if it seems a bit too angelic, there's always the equally enchanting, brightly colored Gothic Temptress Statues. Compliment these statues with the striking Jaw of the Dragon Offering Dish.

Enjoy 25% off these items and all of our beautiful resin garden statues, Gothic decor, and everything else on our site as long as you purchase by Friday, December 13th.

Pay Nothing for Regular Shipping on Gargoyle Figurines from Design Toscano!

Talysus the Terrible Gargoyle SculptureGargoyles have graced the ramparts of castles and cathedrals for centuries but thanks to modern resin technologies, we can also put these fantastic sculptures on display in our very own gardens. The detailed, bat-like wings, scales, and other intimidating features of this old Medieval form of art are an essential aspect of any Gothic decor theme, while the classic appeal of gargoyles makes even the most ferocious gargoyle suitable for a garden that also features angels, animal garden statues, and beautiful outdoor water fountains. The timeless appeal of the gargoyle makes this a suitable sculpture for both indoors and the outdoors and a fine gift for someone who enjoys the fantasy genre.

Whether you buy a gargoyle statue to be used as a winter holiday gift, or to decorate your own place, today is a great day for purchasing a gargoyle or two. Buy gargoyles today and tomorrow from Design Toscano, and you pay nothing for regular shipping! The absence of regular shipping costs makes today an excellent day to buy cute little Emmet the Gargoyle Sculpture for the garden, or Talysus the Terrible for the backyard. Both of these modern gargoyles would fit right in with their old Medieval counterparts because they are crafted in the same intimidating style (although Emmet is much more adorable!).

Garden Décor: The Overlooked Excellent Gift Idea

"Dreamland Fairy" StatueSometimes it's hard to find gifts for the holidays because we just end up thinking about the same types of presents we gave the year before. It might be clothing or some useful item but we don't often think of giving decor for the backyard. This is a perfect gift for anyone who has at least some green space behind the house. If the person in question likes to spend time in the garden, that's even better, but anyone with a backyard could use high quality decor for the garden. Even if he or she already has a fine display of Greek garden statues or a fun bunch of garden gnomes, you can bet that they will love to take the wrapping off another statue for the yard.

To find the best garden statue for that special person, think about how they have decorated their yard along with their hobbies, what they like to read, and so on. If they only have gnomes and other cute garden statuary, garden fairies like the Dreamland Fairy Statue is a good bet. They might also like high quality animal garden statues like adorable Pongo, the Hanging Baby Orangutan. However, if that special person is a fan of science fiction or fantasy novels, buy gargoyles figurines like the Chained Cathedral Gargoyle Statue or a realistic dragon skull statue.

Fierce and Beautiful Dragon Garden Statues

Ranier, the Sculptural Dragon RainspoutDragons can be mystical, enchanting, and wise, but we should never overlook their fierce nature. Many are the stories and legends of a powerful, dangerous dragon that needs to be avoided and/or appeased at all costs. To do otherwise might invoke its fiery rage and could doom the entire community. To resolve that perilous problem, the local villagers either send some sort of tribute or a hero to rid themselves of the beast. Hence, we have the legend of the dragon slayer but despite the danger associated with dragons, we continue to be spellbound by these mythical, magical creatures. They represent a fierce beauty that comes to life in fantasy novels and movies, and whenever they are depicted, the audience can't help but be impressed by their dangerous, majestic beauty.

You can bring that same detailed beauty into your garden with many of our dragon sculptures. The Mystic Dragon Avenger Statue shows the fierce side of the dragon with sharp details and a fanged snout. As it coils around its magic orb, this striking dragon somewhat resembles a gargoyle meant to protect your garden.

For a fierce and functional dragon, try Ranier, the Sculptural Dragon Rainspout. Put this unique garden statue at the end of a gutter and it will look as if the scaled beast is breathing fire every time it pours.
