The Smiling Garden Gargoyle Statue

Abbadon Gargoyle StatueGargoyles are fearsome beasts that were designed to scare away bad spirits and enemies of the realm. Since their main task has always been that of a fierce guardian meant to keep unwelcome things away from the front gates, we can't really expect them to look nice and cuddly. However, although creatures like the Abbadon Gargoyle Statue are nothing but intimidating, there are a few gargoyles that seem more intent on entertaining your guests than scaring them. Some of them even have grins on their faces.

One of those smiling, happy gargoyles is Leo the Laughing Gargoyle. This happy go lucky creature is a unique and cheerful addition to the backyard or any room in the house. With its big, happy grin and canine-like pose, Leo looks like he would rather be a dog than a gargoyle.

After adopting Leo as the new family pet, get the Winston Gargoyle Statue to give him some cheerful company. The muscled limbs and hoofed feet identify Winston as a gargoyle but unlike his frightening brethren, this fellow wouldn't harm a fly. By the content look on the face of this gargoyle, Winston seems to have found inner peace (or has just finished devouring a would-be foe). Complement Leo and Winston with cute little Babble, the Gothic Gargoyle.

A Garden Angel Statue as October Decor

Remembrance and Redemption Angel SculptureOctober is such a fun time of the year. We see a colorful collage of red, green, and yellow foliage in our favorite parks and backyards. Football season is well underway, the nights have a crisp October edge, and Halloween is coming. Speaking of this fun holiday, it's not too late to buy high quality Halloween decor. After picking out a few gargoyle figurines, pick out an angel statue for the backyard. Even if you don't use it as Halloween decor (although you should), a beautiful angel sculpture is a fine fit for an October garden.

Angel statues look wonderful in a late fall garden. The bare branches and change of seasons are reminiscent of old, European cemeteries decorated with beautiful sculptures of angels, and the stark surroundings help put the spotlight on angel sculptures and other garden statuary. The Remembrance and Redemption Angel Sculpture is a striking emotional piece that speaks volumes in Victorian silence. This beautiful sculpture is wonderfully complemented with the smooth contours of the Extended Grace Angel Statue.

If "majesty" is what you are looking for in an angel statue, the Angel of Patience is more than adequate. This elegant strolling angel has a classic, serene appearance that will stand out even more when the leaves have fallen.  

Find the best stone garden angel and selection of high quality decor for your backyard at Design Toscano.

20% Off Halloween Gargoyle Figurines

These intimidating, unique stone monsters also look right at home in gardens with Victorian-themed decor, stone garden angel or two, and other classic garden decorations. However, there is one night in the year when gargoyle garden statues take center stage. That special, scary date is October 31st, the day when Gargoyles truly hold dominion over the garden.

This fine gargoyle gives a silent hello with protruding fangs, sharp and ready claws, and bony bat wings. It will also wait with tensed muscles at the ready long after the end of your Halloween bash. After guests edge past the threatening stare of Silas, they can be subjected to the evil grin of Talysus the Terrible. With outstretched wings and crouching posture, Talysus is ready and eager to pounce on anyone who happens to make the wrong move.

Once Halloween guests enter into your spooky October 31st dwelling, use Merciless, the Gargoyle Lighted Wall Sculpture to help them find their way. They might admire Merciless for a bit, but won't last long under the fierce, piercing eyes of this functional gargoyle sculpture.

The Unicorn as an Outdoor Garden Sculpture

Mystical Unicorn of Avalon StatueGarden statuary can take the form of angels, gnomes, animals, gargoyles, and just about anything that fits into a garden decorating theme. In fact, the versatile nature of resin garden statues means that we can even decorate the yard with strange, mythical creatures. Detailed sculptures of lions, foxes, and horses lend the garden a beautiful, realistic look, but if you are looking for something a bit more magical, put sculptures of dragons and other mythical creatures on display.

The Unicorn is one such creature and statues of this most magical of animals will give the yard a fantastic, enchanting touch. Although no one has ever seen a live Unicorn, in Medieval times, stories of this beautiful, one-horned Equine creature were taken so seriously that it was featured on more than one Coat of Arms, and can still be seen on the official Royal Coat of Arms for the United Kingdom. It also makes a lovely, elegant animal statue for any yard. That pristine, magical beauty is perhaps best displayed by the Mystical Unicorn of Avalon Sculpture. Complement this fine animal yard statue with the smaller yet appropriately named and lovely Enchanted Unicorn Sculpture.     

Purchase $75 or more in resin garden statues and anything else at Design Toscano, and enjoy regular shipping for free.

This offer ends on September 21st and cannot be combined with other offers.

Bright Colored Dragon Garden Statues

Red Devil Dragon SculptureStatues of dragons often show the same shades of dun and gray as those of gargoyle garden statues. Although such stone-colored dragons can give the yard a mysterious, distinguished look, dragon sculptures can also sport bright, eye-catching colors. One such brightly colored dragon is the aptly named Red Devil Dragon Sculpture. The fine, intimidating details and shades of red make this an excellent addition to any collection of dragon statues. It can also be used to match the color of autumn foliage, especially the crimson and scarlet hues of Maple leaves.

The Dragon of Lynton Stowey is another colorful scaled beast. This beautiful dragon is painted with shades of shining metallic amethyst and silver, and is highlighted with a few faux jewels. Display this fine winged dragon on a pedestal, as an objet d'art on antique replica furniture, or use it as eye-catching desk decor.

Lysander, the Five-Headed Dragon Sculpture is one of the more menacing dragons from our collection. This one foot tall olive-colored dragon sculpture has powerful clawed hands, five fiercely fanged heads, and taloned wings. Use it as unique, autumn garden statuary or display it as part of your interior Halloween decor. Either way, this exquisite dragon sculpture will make quite the impression.

ADORABLE LITTLE GUYS!

The Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyle Statue Set: Medium

 

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

A friend bought me this set a while back. I love them! They make me smile every time I look at them. I liked them so much that I decided not to put them in the garden, but find a fun place for them inside. They are well made and worth the money if you're looking for something different with a sense of whimsy.

Use Resin Garden Statues to Change the Atmosphere of Your Home and Business

Strike a Pose Zen Yoga FrogEvery once in a while, the house needs a change. Leave that old decor or paint job in place long enough and it starts to look as old as it feels. This affects the atmosphere of the home, and usually ends up affecting the moods of just about anyone who walks through the front door. When the decor feels "tired", it's time to change it to improve the atmosphere of a home or place of business. Needless to say, it's especially important to change the atmosphere of a place of business because it can affect customers.

If your place could use a bit of creative color, put the Strike a Pose Zen Yoga Frog on display. This unique animal yard statue is a cheerful piece that also works well as a fun indoor statue. Another indoor statue that works well to change the atmosphere of home and place of business is the Venus of Arles Sculpture. Use this beautiful replica of the ancient Greek masterpiece to add classic elegance to any room. It also makes for fine entranceway decor in a restaurant or hotel. If it's time to switch to Gothic decor, a high quality gargoyle like Silas the Sentry and beautiful furniture like the Lord Raffles Grand Hall Lion Leg Table could do the trick.

Save on New Interior Gothic Decor

Grim Reaper and Orb of Death StatueA Gothic-themed garden fits right in with fall weather. As the leaves fall from the trees, greenmen statues become more obvious and seem to laugh in delight. Gargoyle Garden Statues also seem to take charge with stark, intimidating features and long fangs. However, Gothic statues aren't just limited to the outside of the home. There are also plenty of Gothic statues that look wonderful when displayed inside the home.

The Grim Reaper and Orb of Death Statue is a 14 inch tall, faceless dark angel that adds character to any room. Put this unique sculpture in the library, next to your favorite reading chair, or on your desk to remind you of the mysteries of the fantasy genre.

Complement the dark look of the Grim Reaper with the dark comedy shown by the Bride and Doom Married Couple Skeleton Statue. The skeletons in this fun little statue show that death couldn't keep them apart. In fact, it kept them together and by their toothy grins, they seem pretty happy with that prospect. This unique interior decor makes a fine engagement gift for special couples and anyone with a dark sense of humor.

What’s Your Favorite A Garden Gargoyle Statue?

Emmett the Gargoyle SculptureIf you have visited the spectacular Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, you have probably seen, and maybe taken pictures of, some of the most famous gargoyles on the planet. The strange sculptures of fanged beasts on the ramparts of this and other Gothic cathedrals were meant to intimidate all who dared enter into the sacred confines of the church. Their odd appearance has made them popular types of decor to this day even if we don't use gargoyles to scare off garden guests and any unwelcome spirits.

Modern day gargoyle figurines can be fun, scary, highly detailed, and downright cute. If you love an adorable gargoyle, then Emmett the Gargoyle Sculpture might be one of your favorites. Put this lonely little creature in the backyard so he can be friends with your garden fairies, and entertain garden guests. Babble, the Gothic Gargoyle also makes a nice companion for Emmett but keep him away from Scatheus, Guardian of the Shadows! This fantastic, fierce gargoyle is only meant for gardens that play host to dramatic, highly detailed decor. Scatheus looks best when displayed as stunning Halloween decor, or when shown with dragon statues, and classic garden statuary.

Pay nothing for regular shipping on $75 or more purchases of gargoyles, animal garden statues, and other high quality décor at Design Toscano until tomorrow, August 24th.
