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.

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.

The Abominable Big Foot Garden Statue

Abominable Snowman YetiLegends of large, unknown hominids are told in many parts of the world. Although most people have heard about Sasquatch, the "Grassman" is also rumored to hide out in the oak forests of Ohio, many people claim to have seen the Skunk Ape in the dark swamps of the southern states, and the Yowie haunts the Blue Mountains of Australia. The Himalayan mountains are also rumored to be the home of another Bigfoot-like creature, this one with white fur. That creature is known as the Yeti and although definitive photos are lacking, many Nepalese villagers claim to have seen its footprints in the snows of the high mountains.

The Yeti has also been referred to as the Abominable Snowman. Although we don't think there is anything abominable about our Abominable Snowman Yeti Statue, this unique sculpture is certain to lend a unique look to the yard. The piercing, questioning eyes, muscled appearance, and fine details lend a high degree of realism to this sculpture. In fact, don't be surprised if it takes a while for the family dog to get used to it. It might also take a while for neighbors and guests to become accustomed to seeing a Yeti walk across the backyard, especially on nights with a full moon!
