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.

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.

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.

Large Buddha Statue or Small Buddha Statue?

Giant Buddha Monument-Sized Garden SculptureSome of the largest statues in the world are sculptures of the Buddha. Carved out of mountainsides, shaped from natural rock formations, or painstakingly sculpted from different stones that are then put together, huge Buddha statues never fail to leave most people in awe. This was one of the main reasons for making them so large in the first place but it's not the only size shown by the Buddha statue. Smaller statues are actually the norm and this is demonstrated by many Buddhist temples in Asia. Although the largest statue is the centerpiece of the temple, there is typically a number of other, smaller sculptures in various shrines here and there on the temple grounds. The different sizes of the statues make it easier to be reminded of the Buddha and the importance of striving for humility.

The size of the Buddha statue for your garden depends on how you want to display it. If it's going to be the most important of all your resin garden statues, then a large Buddha sculpture is probably the best one to get because such an item tends to take center stage. If you would rather have the Buddha sculpture act as a simple highlight to an Asian-themed garden that also features a large tiger sculpture and other decor, then you probably need medium or small Buddha statues.

What Does a Large Buddha Statue Say About Your Backyard?

Giant Buddha Monument-Sized Garden SculptureThe garden statuary used to decorate the green space behind your house says as much about you as it does the yard. Put up a few classic Greek garden statues and you might have an appreciation for ancient cultures and art that lasts for ages. It might also represent pride in your Greek or other Mediterranean heritage and a tendency to appreciate realistic art forms.

A Buddha statue could show that you enjoy the neat appearance of an Asian-themed garden. This is almost certainly the case if the sculpture is flanked by bronze cranes or an animal yard statue of a panda. If the Buddha sculpture shares the backyard scene with statues of dragons and other legendary creatures, it might show that you have an imagination that appreciates fantasy novels and are intrigued by the many mysteries of life, or it could indicate that you are a practicing Buddhist.

However, if a look around the garden also reveals items as varied as garden fairies, animal statues, and water fountains, it could just be that you love to decorate your backyard with beautiful statues. No matter what the reason is for including a Buddha statue in the garden, both jolly and meditative depictions of the Buddha are a fantastic addition to any yard.

Humorous Garden Statuary for an Asian-Themed Backyard

Tian Shan, the Asian Panda SculptureAsian-themed gardens aren't necessarily known for the comical side of life. Although they aren't exactly against laughter, the decor that is typically displayed usually lends to a general ambiance of peace and tranquility. Order is given to nature without overly disrupting natural lines and shapes. Statues of pagodas and Buddhas remind visitors that some aspects of life are timeless while bamboo fountains and animal garden sculptures of the Giant Panda are reminiscent of ancient, mystical Chinese mountains.

That said, humor can still be a part of any Asian-themed backyard. Laughter and smiles play just as much of a role in finding peace as meditating near a large Buddha statue. Sculptures of happy, smiling Buddhas demonstrate the importance of joy and fit into to any backyard decorating theme. For one of the cutest, funniest little Asian-themed statues, though, you can't go wrong with the ninja gnome sculpture. Yes, this little guy is both a ninja and a gnome and he's ready to use his magical stealth to protect your garden from squirrels, mischievous garden fairies, and other would be intruders. Although no true ninja needs any amount of back-up (they prefer to work alone), it won't hurt his ego to also deploy Basho the Sumo Wrestler.
