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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
