Garden statuary comes in so many shapes, themes, and sizes that it can be hard to pick out the sculptures meant to beautify your backyard. Although some of those big, Buddha statues look downright inspirational, most folks tend to feel like they look out of place in non Asian-themed gardens. The same goes for Greek garden statues in a backyard that already hosts sculptures of a Giant Panda and pagodas. If the backyard is big enough, you could probably get away with dedicating different corners of the yard to different decorating themes but mixing them together is likely to result in a confusing, crowded, conglomeration of statuary.
In the case of angel statues, though, their universal appeal helps them fit into a wide variety of decorating themes. As long as an angel is placed off to the side of Asian-themed statues, they don't cause much of an intrusion. The same goes for a yard replete with animal garden statues. Although the animal sculptures are more colorful and generally realistic than sculptures of angels, as long as both types of statuary are kept somewhat separate, they don't really disrupt the decorating theme.
