A Swimming Elephant Statue Plus Sweet Lambs

in For a Swim Elephant Lawn SculptureWhen you picture large or small outdoor elephant statues, you would generally picture an elephant with his trunk raised high and in a walking stance.  Even our wonderful outdoor elephant table has that stance.  However, the In For a Swim Elephant Lawn Sculpture is actually three pieces of beautifully hand painted designer resin sculpture.  When placed in your yard, it shows the rear, back and head of the elephant with tusks and trunk and looks as though the rest is underwater.  This is an exclusive and great fun.

Our animal sculpture is all wonderfully hand painted with the animal musculature sculpted in great detail, such as our tiger sculpture.  We have lions and tigers and bears plus more.  There are several enjoyable farm animals in our collection such as Yorkshire Lambs Garden Statues: Sitting Lamb & Standing Lamb.  These are baby lambs, hand painted in our excellent detailed tradition and look like they are part of a wooly herd in your yard.  Again these are Design Toscano exclusives.

We have a penchant for producing wonderful large statues that have the same fine sculptural details of our smaller statues.  Certainly our large Buddha statues are an example of that.  For the many gargoyle lovers out there, we now present a large gargoyle statue.  This is Beelzebub, the Prince of Demons Gargoyle Statue and he is not for the faint of heart.  He sits on a great plinth and stares with scorn at the world around him.  Do you dare put him in your yard?

Statues of Gods and Dinosaurs

Confucius Garden SculptureDesign Toscano has many statues of many different religions, such as our Buddha outdoor statues.  Many people like to create a meditation garden and these statues from many different religions add to the peace and spirituality of the space.  On such outdoor statue is the Confucius Garden Statue.  This statue is from the ancient Chinese religion of Confuscianism.  This is a two foot, well detailed statue of Confucius with a finish that has the look of ivory and is also a Design Toscano exclusive.

Browsing our marble busts for sale section, you will discover many wonderful statues, busts and other sculpture for great prices.  In keeping with the theme of the god or goddess statue, we have Themis, Blind Justice Bonded Marble Statue.  This is another one of our great exclusive sculptures and is the Greek goddess of justice done in bonded marble and holding the scales of justice made of faux gold.

We love to have fun with our sculptures and to have statues that will make your yard just a bit different from your neighbor’s.  Certainly our big foot statue and large dinosaur statues are a fine example of a little quirkiness for the yard.  If you would perhaps like a slightly smaller piece for a side garden with a little style, you might take a look at our Raptor Skeleton Garden Sculpture.  He is 2 feet long and has the look of an ancient dinosaur skeleton just recently excavated.

Ella, the Littlest Flower Fairy StatueWhile not necessarily Asian, a garden fairy statue can fit in with every theme, especially in a colorful flower garden.  One that is especially adorable is Ella, the Littlest Flower Fairy Statue.  Yet another Design Toscano exclusive, Ella is hand painted in lovely Victorian colors and stands 17” high and will love all your flowers.

Buddha Statues

Baby Buddha Studying the Five Precepts (Virtues) StatueBuddha statues in all sizes and forms give an air of serenity to the garden.  Our large Buddha statue can calm a whole backyard.  A smaller figure, but no less serene, is Baby Buddha Studying the Five Precepts (Virtues) Statue.  This great outdoor statue sits with his legs crossed in your garden and is quietly reading the ancient text of peace and serenity.  If you like the Baby Buddha or any of our other statues, you'll love the fact that right now during our Memorial Day sale you can get 20% off of everything until May 31, 2011!

Our Basil Street Gallery has a large collection of Asian statues and figurines all of which are beautiful and a nice addition to a décor of that theme.  The Earth Witness Wall Sculpture is of the Ankor Khmer Buddha in a pose of crossing his legs and gazing peacefully from his perch. 

Lord Buddha Meditation Altar StatueThis statue is cast in quality designer resin and may be placed inside or outside your home.
The third Buddha statue is from our large collection of Buddha outdoor statues and is once again in the pose of meditation.  Many people like to have a peace garden or a meditation spot in their yard and this wonderful meditative piece would fit right in.  He is the Lord Buddha Meditation Altar Statue.  Posed for meditation, he holds a glass votive candle holder so that enlightenment can come in the form of a small votive candle.

Large, Medium and Small Statues

Giant Buddha Monument-sized Garden SculptureNo matter what size your home is or your outdoor space, Design Toscano has a statue that is just the right size for you.  A large garden area is supremely suited to our large Buddha statue.  We have several of these that can fit right in and give serenity to a grand amount of space.  One statue that we are proud of is the Giant Buddha Monument-sized Garden Sculpture.  This Buddha is four feet tall and even at that size, due to the wonderful detail of the sculpture; he casts a mist of calm all around him.

All of our animals are very lifelike whether they are marble, bronze or resin painted.  Of course, we have animals in all different sizes and for the medium space there is nothing more adorable than our Lying Down Tiger Cub Statue.  All of our tiger sculpture is amazingly lifelike and this guy is no exception with his hand painted stripes and his hint of smile.  He's ready for a romp in the yard.

Our small statues are just as lovely and detailed as the grand ones and have so many places to be such as on a tabletop, in a small garden or on the patio.  A favorite one is the Talisman Gargoyle of the Eclipse Statue.  He is one of our nicely sculpted gargoyle figurines done by Liam Manchester as a Design Toscano exclusive.  The figure is done in resin with an evil face, big wings and of course he has horns.

Beautiful Asian

Shou Xin Gong: Chinese God of Longevity StatueMany people like to use themes in the outdoor gardens or patios and even on porches.  There are all types of themes of course, from Greek to animal to quirky.  If you are interested in creating an Asian theme in your garden here are some suggestions from Design Toscano.  We have wonderful Buddha outdoor statues that range from the serene to the joyful and we also have a very serene and well sculpted Chinese statue.  This is Shou Xin Gong: God of Longevity Statue.  Shou Xin Gong is a statue of an old Asian man with a long beard (showing his longevity) carrying the "peach of immortality" and the "staff of longevity". 

To perk up your Asian theme and add some joy, you should look at our Japanese garden statues.  One of the more interesting of these is our Dancing Asian Fish Spitting Garden Statue Collection.  These fish come in four different sizes and are depicted standing on their tails dancing with their mouths wide open.  They are piped if at any time you would want to use them as a small fountain spitting water.

We have many extraordinary statues like our big foot garden statue which is quite amazing.  In the Asian theme a similarly large and spectacular statue is our Asian Dragon with Power Orb Solid Bronze Garden Sculpture.  He spouts water, so no fear of fire from him, and he is holding an orb in one of his claws.  He is large and beautiful.

Outdoor Planters

Flower gardens are wonderful nicely planted in a batch or border around the yard, but flowers in an outdoor planter look great in the summer too.  In our greenmen collection, we have many unique and sometimes bizarre items, but the French Greenmen Wall Sculpture Set is lovely on a corner with colorful flowers growing out the top.  The cute little greenmen faces give it a certain charm and feel of summer.

Pancho the Burro Planter SculptureAnimal sculpture is always popular as people love the lifelike artistry on our statues.  The Meerkat statue is always fun, but Meerkats don't carry plants.  A cute animal that will carry your plants is Pancho the Burro Planter Sculpture.  Pancho carries plants in baskets on both sides and is so cute wearing his little bronze hat.

Design Toscano has many large outdoor sculptures like our large Buddha statue and other large animals and décor.  We also have a great large planter that will blend in nicely with large décor which is the Chateau Elaine Authentic Iron Urn.  This urn holds a nice array of flowering plants and is also at a great sale price right now.  This is the time to get a great large planter.

One of the most unusual and one of the larger of our water fountains is the Spitting Asian Dragon Bronze Statue.  He's a very detailed Asian dragon sculpted in bronze and pours water out of his mouth.

An Asian View to Décor

Basho the Sumo Wrestler SculptureOne of the most popular looks in both indoor and outdoor is the Asian look.  This look can be a tall regal statue or for even more fun in our Japanese garden statues we have Rasu the Sumo Wrestler Sculpture.  Rasu is crouched as though ready for a fight to begin and looks somewhat intimidating, yet more as a guard to your yard.  Rasu comes in two sizes, large and medium, for differing uses outdoors.

Buddha outdoor statues add an oriental look to any yard and also create something of a peaceful, calming effect.  People generally associated the Buddha form with a round kind of happy guy sitting crosslegged, however there many different depictions of the Buddha.  The Bodha Gaya Buddha Statue is a 3 ½ ft. sculpture of the Buddha standing with a gong gently and tranquilly.  A fun Buddha sculpture is the Jolly Hotei Buddha Statue who just makes all who seem him want to smile and be happy.

Takamatsu Geisha CollectionIn our Basil Street Gallery we have some beautiful sculptures to add to your indoor Asian décor.  The graceful Takamatsu Geisha Collection with two wonderfully dressed Geisha, one playing an instrument and the other dancing with extreme grace.  For a less subtle touch to you décor, you might interested in the Ancient Dragon Foundry Iron Candelabrum.  This marvelous sculpture of a fierce strong dragon holds 3 votive candles on its back with pride.

Bronze Garden Statues


When the landscape is covered in ice and snow, the bones of your garden become visible.  The bare limbs of maple trees, the neat mounds of now-mulched perennials.  And perhaps, an empty spot between the hydrangeas.
