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.

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.

Exquisite Italian Greenmen Statues

Presence of Carnevale Greenman Wall SculptureGreenman sculptures can take more than one form. While classic greenman decor looks like a worn, wizened face surrounded by leaves and twigs, they can also take the form of small statues, and even decor reminiscent of Italian carnival masks. The fine details and life-like appearance of the Italian greenman statues are particularly impressive. The Presence of Carnevale Greenman Wall Sculpture is one such wall decor item. This unique decor enchants and intrigues with bright, knowing eyes, a hint of a grin, and realistic sculpted feathers. If you have been to Venice, Italy during "Carnevale", you may have seen feathered masks that look very much like this unique greenman.

Michelangelo's Florentine Man is another, impressive, Italian-style Greenman sculpture. This fine wall decor shows the same beautiful blend of man and the natural world as the Michelangelo renaissance original. The classic look of this greenman also makes it a distinguished piece for a garden wall, inside the home, or in a place of business.

One of the other Italian greenman statues in our collection is the stunning Vappa, Italian-style Wall Sculpture. This fine wall decor is closely modeled after carved faces seen on antique Italian fountains in such beautiful Tuscan cities as Siena, Florence, and Montecatini. It will also be a unique addition to the garden or any of the rooms in your home.

Cheerful Greenmen Sculptures

Bacchus Wall SculptureThe greenman sculpture is an ancient form of art that probably has its roots in pre-Christian druidic belief systems. Rather like wall decor for trees, these interesting statues literally give a face to a favorite Oak, Maple, Ash, or other backyard tree. Although some look intimidating or even a bit frightening, there are greenman sculptures with happier, cheerful faces. These fun wall decor items are a perfect addition for a summer garden, and add just the right character to summer garden soirees.

Few wall decor items make a better fit for summer parties than the Bacchus, God of Wine Greenman Wall Sculpture. With wild, unkempt curls and a jovial, grape-ringed face, Bacchus shows that this is one deity who is always ready to party.

Another of the more cheerful greenman sculptures in our collection is actually a greenwoman. Daphne, the Greenwoman Wall Sculpture has a happy, easy-going face with bright eyes and smooth, flawless skin. Her face is also ringed with leaves of Laurel that blow in the breeze, and where tiny fairy creatures dwell.

These two statues are indeed cheerful but the title of "Happiest Greenman" goes to our Laughing Greenman Birdhouse. With a mischievous wink and roaring laughter, this fun greenman decor also acts as a backyard birdhouse.

Which Stone Garden Sculpture Looks Best in Your Backyard?

Madame & Monsieur EscargotWhen it's time to decorate the garden with backyard decor, we sometimes realize that it's also time to buy a new garden statue or two. That realization might come from noticing that the backyard looks rather empty with just one or two sculptures, that the statues currently on display in the garden look old and worn, or that the backyard would look better with a new decorating theme. However, once you realize that the garden is in need of new statuary, you then have to pick out the best statuary for the yard.

The easiest way to find the best animal yard sculpture, fountain, or other garden statue is to browse the Design Toscano site. There are literally hundreds of unique garden statues that are arranged in several distinct categories, and an easy to use search function. For example, if the backyard could use an animal statue for the side of the pool, check out our collection of wild animal statues. The Baby Fur Seal Statue is a nice option as is the brightly colored Madame & Monsieur Escargot, Enormous Garden Snail Statue Set.

If the backyard trees could use a bit of decor, you might want to decorate them with striking greenmen sculptures like Whispering Wilhelm Tree Ent Sculpture or even "Pongo, the Hanging Baby Orangutan" Statue!

However, if a classic garden statue would look best, we have a large selection of classic statuary to choose from including a large sculpture of Thalia, Muse of the Garden.

Saturday is a Perfect Day to Decorate the Garden with Sculptures for Outside

Zairen, the ZebraToday is Saturday and many of us dedicate much of this day to the garden. After a long week of work, the garden is a welcome, relaxing place for rejuvenation, especially now that the warm weather has come back to town. How nice to sit out back on a favorite bench to read a good book, sip on a cold drink, or just watch the birds come to the feeder. However, most of us also have to spend some of that time trimming plants, taking care of vegetables, and just decorating the garden. That can be hard work at times but it always pays off and is usually much more relaxing than working at the office.

You will know when the backyard needs a new statue if one or more of the other statues start to look "old" or if the garden looks sort of empty. When that happens, the garden will probably look much better with a new statue or two. The best statue for the garden depends on your likes and how you feel like decorating it. That new sculpture might end up being something along the lines of a functional religious statue like the Nature's Nurturer: St. Francis Sculpture, or perhaps a beautiful animal yard statue like Zairen, the Zebra.

A quality stone garden angel can add a dramatic, classic look and we also have striking collection of greenmen sculptures to put a face on your favorite Maple, Oak, or Basswood.

Gothic Garden Statuary for the Summer

Spirit of Nottingham Greenman StatueSummer is just around the corner and although the warm weather doesn't seem to match Gothic decorations as much as garden fairies and other more cheerful decor, there are Gothic items perfectly suited for warm June nights and the hot days of July. Several Gothic resin garden statues in particular are very much suited for the summer months. For example, no summer Gothic garden is complete without a greenman sculpture or two. Greenmen add an enchanting, mysterious touch to the backyard by literally putting faces on the trees. Put the Spirit of Nottingham Woods: Greenman Tree Sculpture on your favorite Oak or Maple to help bring it to life, and pair it with the frightening Poison Oak: Greenman Tree Sculpture if you dare!

Instead of putting a garden fairy statue in the yard, put the Hobgoblin of Harwich Manor Garden Statue on display. Legends say that this funny, furry creature guards vacant castles, keeps, and estates from Trolls and other nasty creatures.

Our Nature's Wanderer Sculpture will also make a fine addition to any Gothic-themed yard. This cloaked wizard will look right at home as he rests on his staff next to a flowerbed or in one of the wilder corners of your garden.

Take 25% off of any of the Gothic decor in our collection when purchased by Friday, May 9th.

A Stone Garden Sculpture for a Unique Backyard

Blushing Babel, The Bashful DragonUnique garden statuary is needed for a unique backyard. An average, everyday sculpture just won't do for gardens that are decorated with carefully sculpted Bonsai vegetation, that make use of an exquisite Japanese rock garden, or have greenmen statues on some of the trees. The same can be said for backyards that already make use of our beautiful animal garden statues or one of our classic Bigfoot statues. Such backyards look best with statues that are both enchanting and unique, and the best place to find them is at the Design Toscano site.

The Dragon of Falkenberg Castle Moat Lawn Statue adds an intriguing Medieval touch to the garden. Put this lawn swimming dragon next to one of your fountains or on a stone garden wall for full effect. It can be complemented with any number of equally fantastic resin garden statues, including such unique sculptures as Apex, the Winged Dragon and "Blushing Babel, the Bashful Dragon" Statue.

The "Strike a Pose Zen Yoga Frog" Statue is a one of a kind animal yard statue that will put a smile on your face every day of the week. This fun frog is just about guaranteed to be a topic of conversation at all of your summer garden parties and looks even better when paired with the exotic "Jungle Forest Tree Frog" Statue.

Some Design Toscano Décor Is for The Birds

Summer's Splash Sculptural BirdbathA garden doesn't just act as a place for relaxation and maintaining flowerbeds. It's also invaluable green space in increasingly urbanized surroundings. In addition to providing us with a tree or two for hanging a swing and showing unique greenmen decor, the green space in the garden can be home to several types of birds. Sparrows, grosbeaks, goldfinches, cardinals, and chickadees are regular garden visitors in many parts of North America. It can be fun to watch them, listen to their songs, and see them interact with choice resin garden statues.

One of the easiest and most common types of bird-friendly statue is the bird bath. Birds love to bathe in small pools of water, especially on hot summer days and they can add just the right touch of natural, animated decor to such fine garden statues as the Summer's Splash Sculptural Birdbath. Put this beautiful decor in the backyard and you will be surprised at the species of birds that show up. To see the most birds, place it about five feet from vegetation so they have a safe place to fly to if they feel threatened.

Providing birds with a place to live will also bring House Wrens, sparrows, and swallows to the backyard. Get the "Laughing Greenman" Birdhouse Statue to watch birds raise their young in the most interesting birdhouse on the block!

How to Decorate the Garden with Greenmen Sculptures

Greenman statues are not simply sculptures of people that are painted green. if you have never seen a greenman statue on a garden wall, think of one of the most enchanting, mystical sculptures you have ever seen that combines the facial features of a person with the leaves, twigs, or even flowers of a tree. This ancient type of sculpture can be seen on the storied garden walls of old Victorian estates and is a vestige of a time when European peoples believed that spirits lived in old, craggy trees, in oddly shaped stones, and on lonely moors.

This classic, mystical garden sculpture fits in with any backyard green space but looks best when displayed in certain situations. For example, the haunting Spirit of Nottingham Woods: Greenman Tree Sculpture should only be displayed on a tree, preferably an old, wizened one. While the Somerset Greenwoman & Greenman Sculptures can be displayed on a a tree trunk, they look better when shown on a garden wall, especially one with plenty of ivy. There are also greenman sculptures that look better as interior decor. One such wall decor item is the God of the Grape Harvest Wall Sculpture. This wonderful wall decor is a perfect fit for a wine cellar or bar.

Exquisite Sculptures for Outside and the Interior of Home and Business

Empress Josephine's Dancer SculptureAlthough most garden statuary looks best when surrounded by the greenery of a big backyard, some statues look just as good inside the home. Certain outdoor sculptures can also act as fantastic, important decor for a business. After using such statues to help beautify the backyard during the summer, bring them inside to add character and charm to both the home and your business. Animal garden statues that look great in the backyard and then just as good or better as interior decor include such resin garden beauties as the "Veiled Chameleon" Statue and the Black Forest Bear Pedestal Table. The chameleon boasts textured, realistic details and several shades of green that add a unique natural touch wherever it is shown.

It also acts as a perfect drink and snack holder while watching football and basketball games in the comfort of your home.

Classic statues that fit the bill include Greenmen such as Bacchus, the God of Wine, and Emperor Josephine's Dancer Sculpture.

Greenmen and Greenwomen for the Garden

The Somerset Greenwoman SculptureGreenman statues harken back to another time and place where ancient trees were believed to host spirits. Magicians and priests of forgotten belief systems carried out ceremonies to communicate with the tree spirits for advice on all sorts of matters. In order to literally give a face to those special trees, artists crafted wooden carvings that blended the face of a person with leaves and branches. Those greenman sculptures eventually became a popular type of decor for the doors and walls of estates, castles, and even pubs. If you keep an eye out for greenmen while traveling through Europe, you can still find iron and old wooden versions on the doors of old inns, bars, pubs, and other structures.

However, in addition to greenmen, there are also greenwomen and these can also be found in Victorian gardens and a variety of old European sites. Continue the tradition of greenwoman statues by putting the Somerset Greenwoman Sculpture on display. This striking work of art captures the essence of the ancient greenman statue in the form of a haunting green face surrounded by oak leaves.

For a more startling and scary greenwoman statue, try the Poison Ivy Forest Witch. With clawed, stick-like arms and hands, leaf tongue, and oak leaf hair poking out from under a witch hat, this large greenwoman will make an impression on all garden guests.
