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.

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. Why wait until March or April to pick out a new stone garden angel or change up the garden decorating theme when you can start today? 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.

Instead of putting out the same old statuary as last year, start looking for new statues now and you will have more than enough time to decide between beautiful animal garden sculptures like the classic Simon the Fox Garden Statue or the stunning Lioness of Namibia Statue.

Begin now and you can take your time to find the best deals on Greek Garden Statues, gargoyle figurines, and regal sculptures like the Lion of Florence Sentinel Statue and Base

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.

Last Day to Save Up to $100 on Fantastic Resin Garden Statues

In God's GraceSpring might seem like a far distant memory but it's going to be here faster than we think. Well, at least we hope so but honestly, most people in Canada and the USA will be feeling the warm winds of spring just two months from now. That translates to 60 days to pick out new garden statues and other fine decor for a spring garden. However, although we have two full months to look for the best decor additions for the yard, there is less than one day to save $100 on garden statues.

Today, January 9th, is the final day of our tiered sale that lets you take anywhere from $20 to $100 off everything from a high quality stone garden angel to gargoyles and stunning animal garden statues. This is a fantastic opportunity to save on decor for the garden, home, and place of business because, in a sense, the more you buy, the more you save. For example, buy the In God's Grace Angel Statue and take $20 off but if that beautiful little statue is purchased with a "Queen of Angels, Guardian of Children" Statue, you can enjoy a $100 discount. 

Buy $100 to $199 in garden statuary and other Design Toscano items and take $20 off.

Enjoy $50 off purchases of $200 to $399 .

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.

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!

The Smiling Garden Gargoyle Statue

Abbadon Gargoyle StatueGargoyles are fearsome beasts that were designed to scare away bad spirits and enemies of the realm. Since their main task has always been that of a fierce guardian meant to keep unwelcome things away from the front gates, we can't really expect them to look nice and cuddly. However, although creatures like the Abbadon Gargoyle Statue are nothing but intimidating, there are a few gargoyles that seem more intent on entertaining your guests than scaring them. Some of them even have grins on their faces.

One of those smiling, happy gargoyles is Leo the Laughing Gargoyle. This happy go lucky creature is a unique and cheerful addition to the backyard or any room in the house. With its big, happy grin and canine-like pose, Leo looks like he would rather be a dog than a gargoyle.

After adopting Leo as the new family pet, get the Winston Gargoyle Statue to give him some cheerful company. The muscled limbs and hoofed feet identify Winston as a gargoyle but unlike his frightening brethren, this fellow wouldn't harm a fly. By the content look on the face of this gargoyle, Winston seems to have found inner peace (or has just finished devouring a would-be foe). Complement Leo and Winston with cute little Babble, the Gothic Gargoyle.

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.  

Find the best stone garden angel and selection of high quality decor for your backyard at Design Toscano.
