Gothic decorations tend to be frightening, mysterious, or intimidating but some items are downright comical. A certain sense of humor might be needed to generate smiles and guffaws from Gothic-themed items but most people should be able to appreciate the following pieces:
The Lost Zombie Head Statue: One of the many odd things about zombies is that the loss of limbs doesn't keep them from continuing to attack and terrorize any and all humans. In fact, they can even lose their noggin and still attempt to chomp at the bit! The wonderfully detailed and grotesque Lost Zombie Head Statue looks real enough to be a prop in the latest zombie horror film. Put it in the flowerbed to give your garden guests a scream of a time!
Zombie Gothic Wall Sculpture: Grant Wood's American Gothic is kind of creepy all on its own. Change the subjects of the painting to zombies and it becomes a masterpiece of dark humor! Even though they literally offer their hearts to visitors, you wouldn't want these ghouls as your neighbors!
Wrapped Too Tight Garden Mummy Statue: This funny mummy looks more annoyed than frightening. I suppose you would be too if you had to spend three thousands years in tightly wrapped bandages!

Sculptures of animals have been used in gardens and backyards since ancient Babylon. Their popularity as decor endures because they represent the power, virtue, and beauty of nature. In the case of statues of lions, dragons, or other strong, intimidating beasts, they have also been employed as erstwhile guardians. As with gargoyles, it is hoped that such animal sculptures will keep the bad spirits from crossing the threshold and bring good luck to their place of residence.
While animal statues of yore were obviously sculptures made of still, unmovable stone, modern resin sculpting technologies have added such an incredible degree of detail to the mix that people routinely take a second or even third glance when confronted with pieces like the Buster the Bulldog Sculpture.
Crafted with incredible realism, this sculpture truly captures the intimidating yet loveable look of the English Bulldog. With ears perked up on its massive head and sitting on its haunches, Buster is always ready to chew on a rubber ball or snap up whatever snack that happens to be thrown his way. He makes an excellent gift for any bulldog fan and looks content in both home and garden.
