A backyard pool lends itself to much more than the possibility of a refreshing swim on a hot June day. It can also act as a focal point in the backyard, and a sparkling watery oasis to sit next to with a good book. The side of the pool is perfect for decorating with Tiki chairs, fun animal garden statues, and other sculptures. Given the magical role that water frequently plays in fantasy and fairy tales, the backyard pool also acts as an excellent place for displaying enchanting, mystical statuary.
The Asian Dragon of the Great Wall will add an exotic, magical touch to the side of any koi pond or pool. Although this classic Asian dragon is at its best when displayed in an Asian-themed garden, it makes a mystical statement in any backyard.
Aficionados of angel statues will be pleased to know that artist Evelyn Meyers Hartley has created yet another fantastic angel sculpture and this one looks wonderful when displayed near a pool. The Extended Grace statue has long, graceful wings and a bowed posture that complements the gentle waters of a backyard pool or pond.
However, as enchanting as these sculptures are, few can match the mystical character of the Lady of the Lake. Inspired by tales of the powerful British water nymph of Avalon, this sculpture captures her enchanting nature with a semi-veiled, timeless face crowned by a floral garland.
