Discounts on Garden Statues of Beautiful Beings and More from Design Toscano

Thai Teppanom Beautiful Being StatueGarden statuary is meant to be admired. This is why so many animal garden statues showcase the natural, stunning beauty of such charismatic wildlife as tigers, foxes, and Black Bears. It's also why people have been making and showing sculptures of deities and ideal beings for thousands of years. Such statues could easily be referred to as "beautiful beings" and indeed, some statues from Thailand are named like as such.

The "Thai Teppanom Beautiful Being" Statue is modeled after sculptures created in Thailand during the 17th century. Like other statues from that era, this modern-day beauty is decorated with lovely, intricate patterns, and has a peaceful, angelic face. Showcase this lovely statue next to a small pond, to complement Asian-themed decor, or use it as a lovely sculpture for the interior of the home.

Several classic sculptures also show beautiful beings including Hebe, the Goddess of Youth Sculpture. Modeled after a famous 19th century work by Bertel Thorwaldsen, this stunning statue would look right at home in an ancient Greek garden. This classic sculpture looks best when paired with other sculptures of beautiful beings like The Four Goddesses of the Seasons Statues, and the Goddess Aurora Statue.

Take 20% off any of the beautiful resin garden statues in our collection until June 15th.

Gargoyle Figurines in the Garden

Emmett the Gargoyle SculptureA garden can be a place for relaxation, for growing vegetables, or even a place of mystery and enchantment. If the backyard is big enough, it can also host garden statuary that pertains to a variety of decorating themes. No matter which themes you decide to go with, there are still some statues that work with everything from Greek Garden Statues to a menagerie of fantastic animal garden sculptures.

One such sculpture is the gargoyle. Put the right gargoyles in the backyard and they can give the garden a classic, Gothic, or mysterious appearance. Emmett the Gargoyle Sculpture is one of the easiest gargoyles to put in any garden. Emmett's easy-going demeanor and cute appearance can even help him fit in with decorating themes that feature Handstand Henry and other garden gnomes.

If the garden could use a bit of wicked wall decor, you can't go wrong with the unique Catgoyle on the Loose! Wall Sculpture. This interesting combination of gargoyle and cat lends a fantastic, thought-provoking touch to any garden wall and will always generate conversation at summer soirees.

Resin Garden Statues Can Be Extraordinary

Spirit of the Ocean Two-Tier FountainFor much of human history, garden statues were high quality, expensive works of art. We can see many examples of those beautiful sculptures in museums, castles, some European cemeteries, and on the grounds of Victorian estates. Nowadays, since garden decor can be mass produced, it's easy to find cheap sculptures in home and garden stores. However, such very average decor is a far cry from the beautiful, mesmerizing sculptures that last the ages. Those classics are nothing short of extraordinary, and there's no reason why we can't decorate modern day gardens with similar, high quality sculptures.

Fountains can be extraordinary decor. The "Spirit of the Ocean" Two-Tier Seahorse Fountain is one of several, fine garden decor items that combines function with artistic beauty. This lovely fountain is classic, seaside decor and works well with Greek garden statues.

Extraordinary decor also comes in the form of the Saint Remy Lion Corner Fountain. This unique fountain lends a classic touch to any garden and is perfect decor for one of those hard to decorate corners. Use this stunning, illuminated fountain to add a bit of natural music to summer garden parties.

Enjoy a 20% discount on any of our fountains until May 19th.

Sculptural Plinths as Garden Statuary

Grande Laurel Sculptural Plinth BaseHigh quality, classic garden statues look fantastic on their own but they look much better when they are given a place to stand on. The ancient Greeks and Romans realized this and is why they placed most of their sculptures on top of columns or plinths. These sculpted bases elevate fine sculptures to proper heights, help them stand out as centerpiece decor, and also add an extra, classic touch. Although any of the beautiful garden sculptures in our collection are fit to stand on their own, like the ancient Greeks and Romans, we also believe that such fine decor looks even better when placed on top of a classic plinth or elegant column.

Several sculptural plinths grace our collection including such classics as the Grande Laurel Sculptural Plinth Base and the Versailles Cherub Plinth. Both of these plinths are modeled after classic decor seen in museums and at the palace of Versailles. Use them to showcase any of your favorite sculptures, including magnificent angels like the Grand Cathedral Angel Sculpture.

The Rococo Sculptural Plinth can also be used to give a favorite sculpture a classic flourish. This beautiful plinth works especially well with statues of angels and the Lighting the Heavens Grande Cherub Sentinel Statue. We also have medium and large Classic Statuary Plinth Bases to fit all of your classic garden sculptures.

Lovely Bronze Garden Statuary for Spring

Pan, Green God of the ForestThe new, warm days of spring are back and the pleasant weather is cause for celebration. We love to mark these wonderful spring days with more time outdoors, and getting our gardens ready for summer. New decor is an important part of that process and can include quaint signs to welcome garden guests, beautiful animal garden sculptures, and other fine items. Bronze garden sculptures can also be used to give the garden a classic look in the form of heirloom quality statuary.

We have a wide variety of beautiful bronze sculptures in our collection, including classics like Pan, Greek God of the Forest Sculpture, and such modern pieces as the Fish Wish Fisherboy Cast Bronze Garden Statue. Both of these sculptures are cast in the traditional lost wax bronze method and lend a lovely, timeless look to any yard. Pan can also be used as a fine indoor sculpture, and the Fisherboy looks perfect when placed next to a backyard pond.

The "Can I Keep Him?" Girl and Dog Cast Bronze Garden Statue is another lovely addition for the garden. This heart-warming sculpture will be admired by all of your garden guests, and looks wonderful when used as centerpiece decor.

Give the Garden a Distinguished Look with Outdoor Elephant Statues

Catch of the Day Grand BearGarden statues come in many forms and are suited to many decorating themes. While some people prefer modern decor, others enjoy decorating the backyard with Greek garden statues and other classic sculptures. When it comes to animal garden statues, some folks go for a wild, dramatic look with decor like the Catch of the Day Grand Bear Sculpture, others prefer cute and well known animals like a Billy Goat Statue, and other folks put unique and extraordinary animal statues on display like the "Death Valley Jake, the Jackalope" Statue.

Many of us also like to put animal statues on display that fit in with a classic decorating theme. One such type of sculpture that makes an ideal fit with classic decor is the elephant statue. The elephant sculpture has played an important role in distinguished gardens and estates for nearly 200 years. It became a symbol of good luck during Victorian times, and continues to lend a classy, fortunate touch to the yards of estates, hotels, and homes to this day. The Good Luck, Trunk-Up Baby Elephant Statue is a beautiful, very realistic sculpture of a young elephant. This majestic animal yard statue makes a distinguished statement in any yard, and looks even better when paired with the beautiful Triumphant Entry Elephant Sculpture.

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.

Big Animal Garden Statues for a Big Backyard

Mombasa, the Graden Giraffe StatueFolks who are fortunate to have their own backyard are lucky indeed. They can reserve part of that green space for vegetables and flowering plants, have the opportunity to install a pond or beautiful outdoor garden water fountains, and can relax by the pool on hot summer days. However, folks with a huge backyard are even more fortunate because they might have sufficient space for a soccer field, volleyball court, and plenty of room for a big display of garden statuary.

Greek garden statues can lend a classic look to one corner of the big backyard, the opposite corner can host a grove of trees decorated with greenmen and a Bigfoot statue, and garden fairies can lend an enchanted touch to the flowerbeds. Although grand-scale animal statues will work in any yard, they look most at home in the biggest of backyards.

Mombasa, the Garden Giraffe Statue punctuates the yard with an exciting, naturally artistic look. The kids will love it and pretend that they are on an African safari. Once the safari is over, kids of all ages can relax in the "paws" of the amazing "Sitting Pretty" Oversized Brown Bear Statue with Paw Seat. They will also love the Jurassic-Sized Triceratops Dinosaur Statue.

Plinths and Columns as Sculptures for Outside

Hebe, Goddess of YouthHappy Super Bowl Sunday! Whether your team is playing in the biggest game of the year or not, we hope that all of our customers can share this exciting day with family and friends. While waiting for the game to start (or if you don't feel like watching the game at all), you could always make plans for a spring garden. It's not too early to start thinking about decor for the garden because that warm weather is going to be here sooner than we realize. In addition to looking for a few new garden fairies and a new stone garden angel, we can also lend the garden a classic look with columns and plinths.

Fluted columns and plinths were an essential part of Roman villas and the gardens of ancient Greece. These simple yet classy types of decor are perfect for displaying stunning Greek Garden Statues. Our Classic Statuary Plinth Bases lend a fine touch to stunning sculptures like Hebe, the Goddess of Youth, and the beautiful Muse with Harp Sculpture.

Pillars and columns also lend a classic look to gardens even if they don't act as a base for fine statuary. Our Corinthian Pillars can be used to host potted flowers and other plants, as decor reminiscent of a Roman villa, or as a regal spot to place a cold drink.

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.

Pillars and Plinths Are Classic Garden Statuary

Classic Statuary Plinth BasesGarden statues come in many shapes and sizes. An animal yard statue might look very different from a bronze fountain or a fluted column but all of these and other sculptures for the yard fall under the category of garden statue decor. We use such sculptures in the yard and place of business because they add character, and inspire. Two of the most ancient types of garden decor are the column and the plinth. These items are still used to this day to act as bases for classic sculptures, and make a simple, classy statement when displayed all on their own.

Our Classic Statuary Plinth Bases show the same simple yet decorative and powerful appearance as Roman plinths on display in the Forum and various museums. Use them to elevate your favorite classic statues to new heights, as a place to display flower plantings, or let their beauty stand on its own.

Our Roman Doric Column Architectural Stone Stool Plinth shows the same wonderfully simple, powerful design as the authentic marble columns that date back to the days of Julius Caesar. This unique decor can be used as your personal imperial side table, to support a classic stone garden angel, or as a classy backyard decoration.

Greek Garden Statues for a Place of Business

Poseidon, God of the SeaThe ancient Greeks took the art of sculpting to new levels. Some Hellenic works of art are so realistic, it looks as if the statue might come to life and gave rise to myths of Medusa being capable of turning people to stone. The Romans improved upon Greek sculpting methodologies but the base of their knowledge came from the ancient Greek civilization. The sculptures that have survived from those eras are majestic and provide invaluable glimpses into the past. Their storied appearance also makes modern day versions of those classic sculptures excellent pieces for the garden but even more so for a place of business.

When we use decor for a business, we want it to portray a certain, appropriate character. However, perhaps most of all, we would also love if the decor could make our restaurant, hotel, or other business unforgettable. Greek statues like the grand-scale Poseidon, God of the Sea help make this happen because they are unique, spectacular decor that customers just don't see anywhere else. A statue of Poseidon or the Four Goddesses of the Seasons make them feel as if they are truly entering a special place. Complement the beauty of these statues with the stunning Spring Awakening Garden Statue for full marketing effect.

Garden Fairies and Other Mysterious, Magical Creatures

Woodland Fairy Garden House StatueWe can decorate the garden with a wide variety of statues and garden decorating themes. While some of us stick to a Victorian-themed garden decorated with classic sculptures and Greek garden statues, others prefer a backyard highlighted with fantasy-themed decor. Statues of fairies, pixies, gnarled greenmen, and other creatures appeal to anyone with an appreciation for the fantasy genre and give the yard a magical touch.

The Woodland Fairy Garden House Statue makes an enchanting addition to a flowerbed or the area beneath a big, old Oak, and gives your garden fairy sculptures a welcome place to stay. Teasing Tessa is one of several fairies who would love to live in that cozy wooden house. In true fairy style, Tessa has delicate wings and clothing crafted from leaves.

Statues of pixies and garden trolls also make an enchanting addition to a fantasy-themed garden. The Stretch Garden Pixie Statue demonstrates the odd, magical appearance of these mischievous creatures and looks even better when complemented with the Valfried: Moon Gawker Garden Troll Statue. Valfried is one of the most unique fantasy-themed statues in our collection. Put it near the edge of a bush or flowerbed for full effect, and place the Spirit of Nottingham Woods Greenman on your favorite tree to complete your fantasy-themed garden.

Resin Garden Statues of Kittens

Kitten Kaboodle Cat Welcome SignGreek garden statues and solemn stone garden angels lend a beautiful, dramatic look to the garden. When put on display in restaurants and hotels, they can also welcome guests in classic, elegant fashion. However, as much as we love classic garden statuary, few folks would refer to such sculptures as being "cute". There are other sculptures that are much more suited for giving a cute touch to the yard, and one of the best is the kitten statue.

Big imploring eyes, a cute little face, and funny antics make kittens incredibly adorable and that same heart warming look is shown by several of our baby cat statues. If you would like to welcome guests to the garden in super cute fashion, put out the Kitten Kaboodle Cat Welcome Sign. Your guests will love it but watch out for cat lovers because they just might try to steal it!

Complement this cute kitten welcome sign with another fun kitten statue in our collection, the Kitten Crowd Family Statue. This sculpture shows a realistic portrayal of a family of happy house cats and looks "purrfect" when placed near the back door or in a library or living room. While acquiring kitten statues for the garden and home, you won't go wrong with the "Cherished Cat" Persian Kitten Statue for the desk. These kitten statues also make great gifts!
