Compact gargoyle makes great roommate

Whisper, The Gothic Gargoyle Sculpture

 

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

Having already submitted a review of this product earlier, I assume you will disqualify this one, but I wanted to be included in your contest. Months after my earlier review, I find this gargoyle even more endearing and easy to live with. He sort of grows on you, and I often find myself petting his head. He never leaves messes, talks back or behaves badly, making him the perfect male companion. If I were to win your contest, I would definitely buy another gargoyle, so he will have a companion while I am at work. Thank you.

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. When that happens, you can be better off thinking outside the box and buying unique gifts than looking for the same old stocking stuffers.

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.

People with an appreciation for Medieval decor and classic statuary might like our Florentine Gargoyle Statue. This classic gargoyle is inspired by sculptures that sit on the ramparts of old European cathedrals, and also acts as wonderful Gothic decor.

If someone on your gift list already has Gothic statues and gargoyles, they will love the Boden Gargoyle Sentinel. This exquisite gargoyle features fine, sharp details, and has a classic, intimidating appearance.

Buy any of our gargoyle figurines, resin garden statues, and other unique items in our collection today until November 16th and pay nothing on regular shipping.

Give and Save on Animal Yard Statue Gifts

Shadowed Predator Black Panther StatueHoliday shopping can be a challenge. It would be so much easier and less time-consuming if all of our family and friends could just give us their wish lists. Your brother already has everything, what more could he possibly want? Then there is the wonderful niece who doesn't seem to like anything (or at least doesn't say what she likes). The best way of dealing with such holiday shopping conundrums is to think outside the box. One of several out of the box options in our collection is the animal garden sculpture. Most people like animals or at least appreciate them, especially when the animal appeals to their personality.

The uncle who likes mystery, adventure, or happens to have a pet cat will love the Shadowed Predator Black Panther Statue. This beautifully detailed animal statue mesmerizes with haunting green eyes, and its stealthy, feline posture.

If that special person on your list enjoys medieval stories and the fantasy genre, she or she will be thrilled to get The Dragon of Falkenberg Castle Moat Lawn Statue. This unique, wonderfully detailed medieval dragon makes a classic statement in any backyard.

If your niece likes gargoyles (make sure to ask!), she will love the Detest the Rest Statue. If she doesn't know what a gargoyle is, give the adorable Meerkat Clan Statue.

Enjoy a 20% discount on any of our holiday gifts until December 7th.

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.

Creepily awesome!

Tree Spirit of Sleepy Hollow Wall Sculpture

 

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

I love Goth, but prefer to suggest it in my decor rather than relying on the more obvious symbols; This is to say that I am not necessarily into dragons, gargoyles, skulls and tree men. This statue, however, was so clever and well done that I couldn't resist it. As I mentioned in my title, it's rather uniquely creepy. Additionally, the suggestion of motion and fluidity are unmistakeable and artfully designed. The Tree Spirit of Sleepy Hollow is a definite eye-catcher, and looks great on my wall!

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.

20% Off Halloween Gargoyle Figurines

Silas the Sentry Gargoyle StatueGargoyles aren't just limited to the high walls of old French cathedrals and crumbling castles. 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.

Greet all of your Halloween guests with Silas the Sentry Gargoyle to show them the true nature of October 31st. 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.

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.

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. 

Take 20% off any of the resin garden statues and other decor in our collection until September 2nd.
