Favorite Gargoyle Figurines at Design Toscano

Nike of SamothraceWe love to collect unique garden statuary. Whether a sculpture is a detailed, beautiful replica of a classic statue (like the Nike of Samothrace) or puts a face on your favorite tree (see the Whispering Wilhelm Tree Ent Sculpture), we love to add beautiful items like these to our collection. Exquisite gargoyles also make it into our collection, some of which are immediate favorites. The following are a few of those favorite gargoyle sculptures:

  • Emmett the Gargoyle Sculpture: Emmett might be the littlest gargoyle on the block but he is also one of the most popular. This cute, shy gargoyle captures everyone's attention with his demure, yet classic appearance.

 

  • The Spitting Gargoyle of Notre Dame Statue, Historic Direct Casting: The spectacular, Parisian cathedral of Notre Dame is home to the most famous gargoyles on the planet. One of those classic creatures is the "Spitting Gargoyle". This famous sculpture shows its contempt for unwelcome visitors by sticking its tongue out as it gets ready to spit on them. Thanks to special permission from the French Ministry of Architecture, we were able to make a direct cast of this most classic of gargoyles.

Excellent use of design

Scatheus, Guardian of the Shadows Gargoyle Sculpture

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

Scatheus was packed so well! The artists use of detail still has me finding new features. While this is a pricey item, he has found the perfect spot inside my home. If you're looking for a high quality, intensely detailed grotesque, this one is worth the price and unusually high delivery cost.

Where to Put a Large Garden Gargoyle Statue on Display

Florentine Gargoyle StatueGargoyles are classic decor in a category of their own. Those of us who love to decorate our homes with dragons and other types of Gothic decor also have a strong appreciation for high quality gargoyle figurines. However, many folks who do not generally decorate with Gothic items also have a gargoyle statue or two because these interesting sculptures fit in with a variety of decorating themes. For example, a large, high quality gargoyle like the Florentine Gargoyle Statue adds a nice touch to a backyard with a few Greek garden statues, and Emmett the Gargoyle Sculpture can fit in with garden gnomes and cute animal statues.

When purchasing a large gargoyle, one of the biggest challenges is figuring out where it should be put on display. For example, you might want to reserve one side of the backyard for an angel statue, and put Talysus the Terrible Gargoyle Sculpture on the opposite side of the yard. Or, Talysus might look best when placed in a dark, shaded corner of the backyard.

Entranceways are another perfect place for gargoyles because these intimidating stone beasts were meant to act as guards and greet certain guests with cold stares. The Argos Gargoyle Sentinel Statue will look right at home when placed next to the back door, or as a centerpiece item.

My thoughts

Gargoyles and Dragons: Dermott Sculptural Pen

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

This did not feel real comfortable in my hand, and is dropped being resin it would be likely to break on a hard surface. This is more of a collector piece for my Step daughter so these things would not be an issue. This is an eye catcher

Eerie, Cheery Gothic Decor

Detest the Rest GargoyleDecorations with a Gothic flair aren't typically associated with happy, bright, or cute decor. On the contrary, most Gothic items are dark, mysterious, and remind us of other, more exciting realms. That said, depending on your sense of humor, there are several Gothic decorations capable of provoking smiles and a laugh or two. The Detest the Rest Gargoyle Statue is dark humor at its best. Unlike other gargoyles, this poor little guy is too shy and grumpy to make the slightest attempt at intimidation. Since it looks like he could use a friend, put him near garden fairies or a cute animal yard statue. If displayed inside the home, maybe the cat will curl up next to him. "Detest" looks even better when paired with Oscar: The Gargoyle with Attitude.

Speaking of gargoyles, the Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyles might be the cutest of their kind. These fun little sculptures are a unique, cheerful addition to the work desk, a fireplace mantle, or your favorite spot for displaying one of a kind works of art. Get "The Black Widow Spider" Statues to give them some equally unique company.

We also have a variety of Gothic wall decor items to fit any decorating need including the Zombie Gothic Wall Sculpture, and the "Fangs of the Vampire" Cast Iron Bottle Opener.

Time to Look for New Resin Garden Statues

Simon, the FoxWhether the garden is dusted with frost or buried beneath a white blanket of snow, this is the perfect time to look for new garden statues. There are several benefits of getting started with new garden decor during January or February but the main one has to do with time.

Begin to think about how you want to decorate the garden today and you have a couple of months to look through a wide selection of statues. You will have plenty of time to figure out the best way to decorate the yard instead of taking a chance with a few low quality sculptures at the last minute.

Save Money on Dragon and Gargoyle Figurines at Design Toscano

Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyle SculpturesSome people are fine with a garden that plays host to a few, easy-going gnomes and some cute animal garden statues. There's certainly nothing wrong with that but some of us like to change up our garden statuary display from time to time by featuring a gargoyle sculpture or two. Contrary to what some people might have you believe, gargoyles aren't just meant to perch on the ramparts of old French cathedrals. They can also lend a unique, eye-catching touch to the garden, especially when paired with dragon statues.

We are big fans of beautiful dragon and gargoyle sculptures because we are well aware of the unique look they give to a backyard or even a place of business. Put a gargoyle like Silas the Sentry near the back door and guests will either feel as if they are walking into a medieval mansion, a place of fantasy, or wonder if they should enter in the first place. For less intimidating gargoyle statues that are also on sale, you might like the cute little Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyle Sculptures Set.

However, no gargoyle scene looks complete without an appropriate dragon. We have more than one fine dragon statue on sale including Dread, the Dangling Dragon Wall Sculpture, and the striking Desmond the Dragon Sculpture.

Three Good Arguments for Gargoyle Figurines

Emmett the GargoyleGargoyle garden statues can be fitting decor for any backyard. Given the intimidating, Gothic look of a classic gargoyle, that might not seem feasible for gardens decorated with cute animals and other cheerful, benign sculptures. Nevertheless, although some of the more frightening gargoyles would certainly look out of place in a garden filled with adorable animal garden sculptures, there are other, very cute gargoyles that fit the bill. The following are three arguments that show why Gargoyles are more versatile than many people realize:

 

  • A classic, regal look: Yes, many gargoyle statues give the garden a classic, royal look because they were traditionally limited to the ramparts of cathedrals and castles. They were high class decor meant to scare off all things evil, and can still provide an intimidating, Medieval touch to any garden.

 

  • Unique, beautiful sculptures: This is one of the easiest arguments to make for getting a gargoyle sculpture. A statue like Gaston, the Gothic Climbing Gargoyle is one of a kind wall decor meant to entertain any garden guest. 

Purchase $75 or more in garden statuary, and anything else at Design Toscano until January 14th and get free regular shipping.

Some Favorite Gargoyle Garden Statues

Silas the Sentry Gargoyle SculptureWe all have our favorite statues and gargoyles are no exception. Some sculptures of those ancient, intimidating beasts just stand out in terms of popularity, classic appearance, and impressive features. The following are a few of our best-selling, favorite gargoyles:

  • Silas the Sentry Gargoyle Sculpture: Gargoyles are tasked with guarding sacred places and they accomplish this with an intimidating appearance. With sharp claws, bat wings, and a big, toothy maw, Silas is obviously well equipped for the job. However, the aspect of Silas that helps him stand out from many other gargoyles is his accusing, defensive glare. That determined look makes him a major conversation piece at parties, and will put any unwelcome guest on the spot.

 

  • Talysus the Terrible Gargoyle Sculpture: This muscled, powerful gargoyle has a monkey-like appearance that makes it look that much more intimidating. The sharp, clawed wings, crouching posture, and evil grin give Talysus plenty of personality. Not to mention, he is also perched on a ball-topped plinth.

 

  • The Spitting Gargoyle of Notre Dame Statue: This wonderful item is a direct casting of one of the most famous gargoyles in the world. The famed spitting gargoyle lurks on the ancient ramparts of the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, France where it is one of the most memorable gargoyles on the structure. Our direct cast with a faux stone finish is as real as one can get without putting the original in the garden.

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.
