A Greenmen Witch, Baby Sea Lions and Dragons

Weekend Sale June 24th through June 26th

Please remember that our Weekend Sale, June 24th through June 26th will be featuring our Classic Garden collection.  The greenmen are often a part of this collection and this might be the weekend to come and view some of these unusual statues and wall figures.  One that is a lot of fun and wonderfully made is The Poison Ivy Forest Witch: Greenman Wall Sculpture.  You can decorate your garden wall with this foot and one half detailed sculpture of a rather ugly witch wearing a wonderful witch’s hat surrounded by poison ivy leaves.  In typical greenman fashion, she is unusual but wonderful.

Floating Sea Lion Pups Animal StatuesAll of our animal sculpture is detailed and hand painted like our popular tiger sculpture.  Many of our artists have been working hard at making the animal offspring equally great and just a little bit cuter.  A fine example is our Floating Sea Lion Pups Animal Statues.  These three little sea lion pups are basking on a rock with one that is floating around nearby.  You can put them in water because they literally float; fun for the koi pond or any other water feature.  They have the great detail and beautiful hand painting of all our animal sculpture.

Summer always seems to be a time for gift giving from graduations to birthdays and weddings.  For the graduate there is no better place to look than in our gargoyle gifts section.  Here you find things that will make the grad’s new office just a little different such as The Desktop Dragon Hatchlings: Set of Three.  Here you have three little dragons just being born and still wearing parts of their eggshells.  Who would expect that on an office desk?

From Basil Street to Gargoyle Gifts

Westminster, the Iron Desk GargoyleThere are so many great things in our Basil Street Gallery that it might take a lifetime to discover them all.  We have all the décor themes from medieval to contemporary and some that just can’t be categorized.  For those many fans of our fairy statues, we have a wonderful set of glass panels that show the garden fairies in marvelous splendor.  The Secret Garden Fairies Hand Painted Glass Art Panels: Harmony and Simplicity are unusual stained glass window hangings depicting the fairies under gorgeous flowers.  Simplicity carries a bouquet and Harmony is wrapped with a garland of flowers.  They are sold separately or as a set.

There are times that you want to give a useful gift, but also something people don’t see every day.  Nothing is more useful than a pencil and pen holder for a desk even in this computer age.  Westminster, the Iron Desk Gargoyle is certainly not something you see every day.  He is a winged gargoyle wearing chains and a rather nasty expression who holds pens and pencils.  Done in foundry iron, he is a good value for price and great for your boss.

The Design Toscano tiger sculpture is well sculpted and always done in wonderful hand painting.  When thinking of a tiger sculpture might think of the tiger prowling your yard, but you can bring this same great sculpture indoors with the Solitary Predator Bengal Tiger Sculptural Bust.  Here we have the same detailed, hand painted tiger sculpture as bust of the head of the Bengal Tiger.

A Buddha Frieze and Gargoyle Gifts

Everyone that is interested in increasing the serenity of their outdoor space should take a look through our Buddha outdoor statues.   One of the most unusual of these is a frieze that can be placed on a garden or patio wall.  This is the Earth Witness Buddha Sculptural Wall Frieze depicting the Angkor Khmer Buddha which is sculpted in great detail in designer resin and is a Design Toscano exclusive.

Flush the Gargoyle Bathroom Tissue HolderThere is always something special about a gargoyle gift.  It certainly may not be what the recipient was expecting, but if it is a Design Toscano gargoyle it will be well received.  A very useful and stylish gargoyle gift is Flush the Gargoyle Bathroom Tissue Holder.  Imagine the surprise on your guests faces when they search for the toilet paper and find it being held by a scary gargoyle with wide wings sticking his tongue out.  This is fantastic and another exclusive of ours.

Sometimes our various themes of statues mix with each other as in the case of some of animals that find themselves in the gnomes’ garden.   The gnomes are hard-working gardeners and they also love the crawlies that end up in their space such as a tortoise statue.  The Teeter with the Turtles Garden Gnome Statue is one of our gardening gnomes pushing a wheelbarrow on which he is giving a ride to two adorable turtles, both wearing gnome hats.

If you are looking for gargoyle gifts for your friends and relatives, we just that know that these people think outside the box and would want something quirky, yet useful.  If you haven’t gotten the perfect Father’s Day gift yet, there is still time to get something for his “man cave”.  How about an Authentic Iron Gargoyle Bottle Authentic Iron Gargoyle Bottle OpenerOpener to hang on the wall in case anyone might want to open a beer down there?  This beauty is solid foundry iron and the finish is an antique brass.  He may be the only guy in his crowd with this item.

Double Trouble Hanging Gargoyle SculptureOur gargoyle figurines are some of the scariest around and great to put on your wall.  The Double Trouble Hanging Gargoyle Statue is an amazing piece depicting a two headed gargoyle that is 2 feet long.  He looks really menacing hanging on your garden wall or he can be displayed lying flat.  This unique gargoyle is a Design Toscano exclusive.

Many of our greenmen collection like to stay outdoors near their leafy trees, but there are some nice pieces that bring the greenmen décor into your home.  The Forest Greenmen Ent Canvas Wall Scroll Tapestry is a canvas vinyl tapestry that is a wonderful depiction of the tree ent face.  This tapestry is from a painting by artist Ann Stokes.
