One 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.
