A statue of the Buddha is frequently found in Asian-themed gardens. This reflects the tendency for Buddhist temples and shrines to combine the beauty of nature with the meditative, peaceful demeanor of sculptures of the Buddha. In keeping with the peaceful tenets of Buddhism, many temples also act as sanctuaries for wildlife by protecting natural habitat and feeding the animals that frequent the surrounding bamboo groves and forests. For this reason, in places like Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam, they can be great places to see monkeys, exotic birds, and other Asian wildlife.
Although you won't find actual Asian animals like tigers and cranes in your Asian-themed garden, you can come close with our realistic, detailed sculptures. Complete the look of your Asian-themed garden by displaying both Buddha statues and animal garden statues such as Tian Shan, the Panda sculpture. Just like a real Giant Panda, this adorable statue has bright, inquisitive eyes, and is keeping busy by chewing on a bamboo stem.
Tigers are another animal that have been the subject of paintings and Asian folklore for centuries. Highlight your Asian-themed garden with a tiger sculpture that showcases the grace and power of this beautiful predator.
