Picking Out the Best Religious Outdoor Statues for Your Garden

Jesus Loves the Little ChildrenReligious-themed statues are a common, beautiful aspect of many gardens. Some of us opt for a classic stone garden angel while others prefer to decorate the garden with beautiful reminders of their faith. There are also people who opt for putting an impressive large Buddha statue in the garden and other Asian-themed religious statues. No matter what your preference is in terms of religious sculptures, you will probably find one or more perfect additions to the garden in our collection of religious resin garden statues. Here are a few tips for picking out the best religious sculpture for your backyard:

  • Pick out a statue that fits in with other garden decor: While most religious statues will easily compliment other garden statue decor, something along the lines of the Jesus Loves the Little Children Garden Sculpture will look much better in a backyard with cheerful gnomes, statues of children, and cute animal garden statues than more solemn sculptures.
  • Use angel statues for a garden with classic statuary: If you have a Victorian garden or one decorated with classic decor, there's a good chance that you already have a few fine angel sculptures. The beautiful Angel of Patience Sculpture will further highlight your fine collection of classic decor.
  • Try a Buddha statue for natural-themed gardens: Sculptures like the Jolly Hotei Buddha Statue and other Buddhas work very well with backyards that put the emphasis on natural decor.

Buddha Outdoor Statues on Sale

Great Buddha Garden SanctuaryNot all religious statues are depictions of garden angels or sculptures related to Christianity. Several of the religious-themed sculptures in our collection are depictions of the Buddha. When one travels to eastern Asia, sculptures of sitting, standing, and even laughing Buddhas are a common sight in temples, gardens, and parks. The serene look on the Buddha's face compliments an already peaceful garden and seems to blend in with the natural surroundings. For this reason, statues of the Buddha are often placed in grottos and other beautiful natural places.

A Buddha statue can have the same peaceful effect on backyards no matter what their size. The beautiful two and a half foot tall The Bodh Gaya Buddha Asian Statue adds a peaceful touch to a backyard when placed by the back door, placed next to a pond, or displayed inside the home.

If the garden would look better with a large Buddha statue, our Giant Buddha Monument-Sized Garden Sculpture is a perfect fit. This large, four foot, seated Buddha is modeled after similar Buddha sculptures from Thailand and has the same, very peaceful appearance. For a Buddha with his very own grotto, put the classic Great Buddha Garden Sanctuary Sculpture in the backyard.

Enjoy 20% off these fine sculptures and all of the religious statues in our collection when purchased from today until April 7th.

Dramatic and Beautiful Religious Garden Statues

Basking in God's Glory Little Girl StatueOne of the first main reasons for putting sculptures on display was for religious purposes. People sculpted figures that were representations of what they took to be sacred and those statues were cared for and shown in temples, grottos, and other sacred sites. In modern times, many of us continue this tradition by putting a statue of a stone garden angel or two in the backyard, or putting Christian-themed sculptures or a statue of a large Buddha on display. No matter which type of religious statue is used, we hope to showcase sculptures that inspire peace, goodwill, spirituality, and encourage us to be better people. For these reasons, the best religious statues tend to be ones that evoke emotions with a combination of drama and beauty.

The lovely Basking in God's Glory Little Girl Statue showcases those factors with sincere, simple beauty. With arms spread wide and a look of joy on her face, the young girl in this sculpture shows the type of happiness that many of us strive to feel. The little birds on her arms add a cute final touch to this wonderful sculpture.

The Ascension: Grande Scale Christ Sculpture is another dramatic statue that showcases Jesus Christ rising from the cross before ascending to heaven. Buy this statue for inspiration in a beautiful, Christian-themed garden.

Asian Garden Statues for a Contemporary Backyard

Cascading Bamboo Sculptural FountainThe garden is meant to be decorated. While you don't have to string lights from the trees (although that can also look nice at the right time of year), the backyard is always going to look better with a bit of decor. Resin garden statues add character and can let you decorate the yard with everything from Greek garden statues to highly detailed animal garden statues and stunning stone garden angels. However, if you would rather stick to a more contemporary touch when it comes to garden decor, you may want to consider using certain Asian garden statues.

While a large Buddha sculpture can add a majestic, timeless touch to the garden, Basho the Sumo Wrestler provides a more modern look. As he squats in classic Sumo fashion Basho gets ready to wrestle any of your garden gnomes and gives the garden a unique east Asian touch. To add depth to your contemporary garden sculptures, pair Basho with a Far East Garden Fighters Sumo Gnome Statue. The Sumo Gnome is also dressed for a wrestling match but looks far too happy and cute to actually do any wrestling. On the other hand, the Far East Garden Fighter Ninja looks more than ready to defend your backyard from squirrels, rabbits, and other intruders. To round out your display of contemporary Asian garden sculptures, you can't go wrong with the beautiful and musical Cascading Bamboo Sculptural Fountain.

Where to Put Asian Garden Statues on Display

"Asian Dragon of the Great Wall" StatueThe Asian garden statue is meant to remind us of the many beautiful gardens that are found in eastern and southern Asia. In countries like China, Japan, and Thailand, certain types of decor have been an essential part of green space on large estates, public parks, and temple grounds for hundreds of years. Statues of Buddhas are used for religious reasons while sculptures of pagodas and other subjects are displayed for their symmetrical beauty. However, somewhat ironically, you don't have to have an Asian-themed garden to display Asian sculptures. Asian garden statues can look just as impressive as long as they are presented the right way.

For example, if stone garden angels and Greek garden statues are already situated in prominent places in the backyard, you don't want to put a large Buddha statue such as the Jolly Hotei Buddha right next to them. Instead, put the Buddha sculpture in another corner of the garden, perhaps under the tranquil shade of a large tree since such spots reflect the types of places where the Buddha is said to have meditated.

The Asian Dragon of the Great Wall is somewhat more versatile but still looks best when placed in or next to a flowerbed, or even better, when displayed right next a swimming pool or koi pond.

Solemn and Beautiful Resin Garden Statues

The Great Buddha Garden Sanctuary SculptureWe use our gardens for a variety of reasons. Some of us take full advantage of the backyard and allocate space for a vegetable garden, include an in-ground pool, and use an open area for summer parties. Others just use the backyard to grow flowers and include a few resin garden statues as decor, whereas some folks opt for turning the green space behind the home into a Victorian-themed garden replete with a fine display of stunning classic garden statuary. No matter how you decide to decorate or use the garden, certain sculpture combinations will provide an additional degree of depth and emotion.

Solemn, thought provoking sculptures such as the Monteverde Angel Statue use a subtle combination of detailed beauty and emotional realism that helps turn your backyard into a special, hallowed place. The powerful appeal of this fine replica of a nineteenth century Italian statue is demonstrated by its popularity in gardens and villas throughout Europe. Pair this breathtaking stone garden angel with the timeless beauty of a statue of Hebe, the Goddess of Youth to add to your garden's solemn elegant atmosphere. Round out the peace and tranquility of your garden statuary display with a magnificent yet humble and quiet Large Buddha Statue or by placing the Great Buddha Garden Sanctuary Sculpture off in a quiet, shaded corner of the backyard.

Bring Cheer to the Garden with a Laughing Large Buddha Statue

The Laughing Maitreya Buddha StatueThe garden or backyard is your own personal oasis of green. It's where we can escape after a long day at work, where we can get back in touch with nature, and where we can take a dip on a hot summer day. It should always serve as a positive place that makes you feel better and certain types of garden statuary can help in that respect. Beautiful resin garden statues of children are wonderful for lending the backyard a touch of cheer. Put an animal yard statue on display that depicts your favorite wildlife and the garden becomes more like a personalized sanctuary. However, if there was one statue that stood out in terms of being a symbol of good cheer, it would have to be a sculpture of a laughing Buddha.

The jolly, laughing Buddha has acted as a positive sign and inspiration of happiness in Asian temples and homes for hundreds of years. The laughing Buddha statue has continued to be popular for such a long period of time probably because it represents the priceless nature of unabridged laughter and pure joy (not to mention putting a smile on the face of anyone who looks at it). Add that beautiful combination of peace and laughter to your garden with the Laughing Maitreya Buddha Statue. Rub his belly for good luck, put him next to a bubbling outdoor water fountain, and allow yourself to be entertained by the presence of this jolly statue.

Order this statue with other unique garden statuary between today and August 16th and save with our Beat the Heat Sale.

Time to Get 20% Off the Best in Bronze Garden Sculptures

Leap Froggin Playing Boys Bronze Garden StatueGarden statuary can be an important, regal addition to a backyard. Put a couple of detailed animal garden statues on display and the backyard showcases the dramatic beauty of the natural world. Put up a stone garden angel or a large Buddha statue and the garden becomes more like a sanctuary of peace. The types of statues displayed in the garden add to or subtract from its character. However, put a few quality bronze sculptures on display and the backyard will look absolutely regal.

Quality resin statues provide a fine decorative touch to any yard but bronze sculptures lend a classic, eternal appearance that demonstrates priceless beauty. In ancient Greece, bronze statues represented the best in garden statuary and a similar situation exists in modern times. This is shown by such beautiful bronze sculptures as the amazing Leap Froggin Playing Boys statue and the breathtaking bronze of Pan, Greek God of the Forest. Both of these high quality bronze sculptures were made in the traditional lost wax method. The sculpture of the playing boys captures the excitement and unbridled joy of youth with uncanny realism while the small statue of Pan will remind you of similar sculptures crafted more than 2,000 years ago.

Save on Big, Beautiful Buddha Outdoor Statues

Giant Buddha Monument-Sized Garden SculptureEastern and southern Asia hosts some of the most interesting cities and sites in the world. The ruins of Angkor Wat beckon with ancient walls and exquisite sculptures. In China, the Great Wall and the majestic features of The Forbidden City are experienced by millions of visitors. Glittering, golden temples that date back hundreds of years can be visited in Thailand and other countries and most of those temples feature a variety of Buddha statues. Some are small Buddha sculptures that were placed in grottos 400 years ago. Others feature a smiling, laughing jolly Buddha, and others are truly massive in size. However, despite the large size of a huge reclining or standing Buddha, those statues don't lose their very peaceful, humble appearance. If anything, they contribute to the peace and tranquility of their surroundings.

However, you don't need to commission the creation of a twenty foot tall statue for your garden to pay homage to the Buddha and fill the backyard with peace. Buy the Giant Buddha Monument-Sized Garden Sculpture and you can make a tranquil statement with a four foot tall, authentic Buddha statue. Complement and add to the peace with the three foot tall, standing Enlightened Buddha Sculpture. This sculpture is imported from southeast Asia and is an authentic, beautiful depiction of the Buddha standing on a lotus.

Stone garden angels, a large Buddha statue, and other religious-themed sculptures fit right in with the peaceful, pleasant atmosphere found in the privacy of the backyard.

Beautiful and impressive in person !!

Deborah from Florida reviewed the Giant Buddha Monument-Sized Garden Sculpture

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

Comments: This statue is definitely worth the money-the size is impressive and it really looks like stone. (without the disadvantage of weighing hundreds of pounds) I was nervous to make such a large purchase without seeing it in person but I have no regrets as it surpasses my expectations. It is on our porch in the line of sight as you come through our front door and adds just the feeling I wanted. You will not be disappointed.
