Fiona, the Flower Fairy SculptureGarden statuary items are essential decor for backyards, hotels, and restaurants. The right sculptures can also lend a beautiful touch to the office. However, statues for the garden can also come in handy in other situations, one of which happens to be the holiday gift giving season. The following are a few reasons why garden sculptures make excellent gifts for the winter holidays:

  • Fine statues are meant to be treasured: High quality garden sculptures are used as decor, but are also treasured by those who put them on display. A majestic stone garden angel such as the Angel of Patience Sculpture will be treasured for years.

Three Benefits of a Super Cute Meerkat Statue

Meerkat Family StatueSome animal garden statues are cute, others are adorable, and then there are Meerkats. These lovely little creatures are so cute that they deserve a category of their own. They are simply "super cute" and statues of this funny little animal bring certain benefits to the backyard. Three of those benefits are:

  • Entertainment for garden guests of all ages: Buy the Meerkat Family Sculpture and just watch the reactions on the faces of kids and all of your garden guests. This realistic animal sculpture shows the same cute posture, and mischievous masked appearance as the live, wild animals in their native Kalahari Desert.
  • Heart warming, cheerful decor: Few animal statues can match the easy-going, unique, cheerful look of a Meerkat. Its big, imploring eyes remind us that the garden is a happy place meant for relaxation. That adorable look is wonderfully demonstrated by the Kalahari Meerkat Out of Hole Statue.
  • Give a unique, warm welcome to garden guests: Put the Meerkat Menagerie Welcome Sculpture near the garden gate to welcome all of your guests in fun, adorable, authentic Meerkat fashion. Not to mention, you will also be welcomed by a trio of fun-loving Meerkats every time you walk through the gate to the backyard.

Three Tips to Pick Out the Best Animal Yard Statue for your Garden

Sitting Bengal Tiger Cub StatueAnimal garden sculptures come in many forms and sizes. With so many types of statues to choose from, it can be challenging to pick out the best decor for the garden. The following are three tips to help everyone from beginning gardeners to veterans in backyard decor pick out the best animal statues for their decorating needs:

  • Think about the size of the garden: Whether looking for an animal statue or a stone garden angel, this is one of the most basic things to consider. Size the statue accordingly because you don't want to pick out a statue that ends up dominating the entire garden. Instead, choose animal sculptures that will highlight the beauty of the yard without "taking over". A medium sized animal statue like the Sitting Bengal Tiger Cub Statue is a good bet.
  • Cute or fierce?: While you don't have to choose between the cutest statue and the scariest, gardeners do need to think about the type of animal personality portrayed in their garden. A Meerkat statue is ideal for those in search of a a curious, cute animal.
  • Wild or domesticated: In general, animal statues can also be separated into one of these two categories. Keep this in mind to decide if you would rather see a Swan of the Lake statue in the garden as opposed to a Prowling Spotted Jaguar statue.

Enjoy a 20% discount on any of the animal garden statues in our collection when purchased by today, March 28th.

A Meerkat Statue for a Beautiful Spring Garden

Meerkat Gang SculptureSpring is in the air and few statues match that happy feeling better than cute animal garden sculptures. The more adorable, the better and this is why a Meerkat sculpture makes such a good match for a warm spring garden. The Meerkat is as cute as its  name indicates. A bit like a small cat, this itsy bitsy mongoose lives in large colonies in arid environments of southern Africa. In the wild, the colony spends most of their time foraging for bugs and other small animals while a few other meerkats keep watch for potential predators. They do so while standing up on their hind legs and give an alarm call if they spot an eagle, leopard, python, or other possible danger. If that happens, the chirping alarms send the entire colony scampering back to their burrows.

In the backyard, adorable, realistic Meerkat statues don't have to wory about any predators but they are still shown standing on their hind legs because that makes them look incredibly adorable! For example, it's hard to find animal garden statues that are more adorable than the Meerkat Gang Sculpture and the Meerkat family. The Kalahari Meerkat Statue: Into Hole & Out of Hole makes for another very cute addition to any yard and the Meerkat Menagerie Welcome Sculpture just might be the cutest way to welcome guests to the garden.

Meerkat Statue or a Tiger Sculpture?

The Meerkat Clan StatueThe backyard can have a pleasing display of garden fairy statues and Greek garden statues but won't be complete until it also boasts at least one animal yard statue. Animal garden statues can add a key, natural touch that helps to complete the look of a backyard. Although a sculpted fountain gives a crowning touch to backyard decor and no garden should be without one or two elegant garden benches, animal garden sculptures showcase the stunning and dramatic beauty of nature's palette. However, once you realize that the garden could use a statue of a wild animal, which type of animal do you get?

If you are looking for "cute", you can't go wrong with a Meerkat Sculpture. While many animals look cute in their own way, the Meerkat is unbelievably and undeniably adorable. In fact, this mischievous little creature looks so cute, it can be hard to believe that it actually exists. Its tiny black paws and little black mask make this furry creature look like it's always up to no good while its big pleasing eyes and tendency to stand on its hind legs melts the heart with ease.

Powerful Pounce: Sumatran Tiger StatueHowever, if you would rather opt for majesty and drama, forget about the Meerkat and get a stunning Tiger Sculpture! The Powerful Pounce Sumatran Tiger Statue blends fine details and beauty for a very realistic, powerful depiction of this big Asian cat.

Animal Yard Statues with a Sense of Humor

Laughing Cow StatueAnimal garden statues come in a cornucopia of styles and themes. Animals that roam the wild forests of the Rocky Mountains and deep, dark tropical jungles can be put on display with dramatic results. Meerkat statues and other cute depictions of animals make a nice addition to garden space shared with gnomes and fairies. Folks looking for Gothic animals will also find them in the form of ravens and dragon statues while those in search of mystical sculptures can't go wrong with a sculpture of a Unicorn or a Bigfoot statue. No matter what type of animal statue you go with, the best are the ones that show the highest degree of realism. However, combine that realism with a sense of humor and you end up with some of the most endearing, unique animal sculptures available.

The Laughing Pig Statue will cheer you up on the most trying of days and will put a smile on the face of every guest to your garden. This jolly farm porker is carefully painted by hand to make it look as real as possible and shows a hilarious laughing face. Pair this happy hog with the equally realistic and hilarious Laughing Cow statue and the Laughing Donkey statue to fill the backyard with cheer.

Everyone Loves Outdoor Animal Statues

Shadowed Predator Black Panther StatueGarden statuary has become a very popular part of the modern day backyard. In fact, ask most people who spend time in their backyard and they might even say that outdoor garden statues are pretty much an essential part of their garden. Statuary might take the form of a small welcome sign, a few garden gnomes, or a fantastic display of full-size Greek garden statues but no matter how big or small, some type of garden sculpture is typically present. However, If you are just getting started with decorating the garden, picking out the right sculptures can be a challenge. You may have always felt intrigued by Buddha statues but you also love dragon sculptures. A big stone angel looks majestic but maybe a couple of small garden fairies would be better when just starting out with backyard decor?

If you aren't sure about which resin garden statues to buy, start out with an ever popular favorite genre of backyard decor, that of the animal yard statue. Most people enjoy animal garden statues and put them on display whether they have a Gothic-themed yard or a panoply of fantastic, classic statues. One of the great things about animal garden statues is that you can always find one that will fit into any type of decorating theme. Something like a Meerkat Statue can also add an incredibly cute touch to the backyard while a Shadowed Panther Sculpture shows the captivating, natural beauty of a jungle predator on the prowl.

Buy $75 or more of animal garden sculptures, other types of garden statuary, and any items from Design Toscano until the end of today, July 14th, and pay nothing for regular shipping!

The Virtues of the Tortoise Statue

Aesop's Turtle Cast Iron StatueAnimals have been associated with certain attributes since people started drawing on the walls of caves thousands of years ago. Owls have often been used as a symbol for wisdom and longevity, royal lions are featured on the crests of a number of noble families, and elephants are said to bring good luck to those who put pachyderm images and sculptures on display. Another lesser known animal that has also been viewed as a symbol of longevity, good luck, and wisdom is the lowly tortoise. Although this ancient order of reptiles might not look as pretty as a macaw or cute as a Meerkat, they win hearts with their good natured, harmless appearance and patient attitude.

The positive attributes and unique look of the tortoise have actually made it one of the more popular and enduring of animal garden statues. People have put sculptures of this characteristic reptile in gardens for more than a thousand years to bring luck to their home and family, and because they add a wholesome, happy look to any garden. The low height of the tortoise makes it an excellent choice for an animal yard statue that can provide a natural look to the backyard while looking right at home with its surroundings. Like the actual, live tortoises that actually do enter gardens in certain parts of the world, the tortoise statue makes for innocuous, naturally interesting decor.

Find beautiful statues of tortoises and hundreds of other realistic animal garden statues at Design Toscano today.

Buy $75 or more of garden statuary and other items from Design Toscano until Sunday, July 14th, and pay nothing for regular shipping!

Three Signs that the Time Has Come for Buying a Meerkat Statue

The Meerkat Family SculptureMeerkats have to be one of the cutest animals on the planet. Since they are small, furry, can stand on two legs, and have a mischievous masked appearance, they more than meet the requirements for being downright adorable. It would be wonderful to have real live Meerkats in the garden but unless you live in the Kalahari Desert, you will have to settle for sculptures of these beautiful creatures instead. Luckily, we have a fine collection of very realistic Meerkat sculptures. If you aren't sure that the time has arrived for buying one or two Meerkat statues, the following signs should help:

  • The gnomes and fairies are looking lonely: If those garden gnomes and fairy statues seem like they could use some company, you couldn't ask for a better statue than a Meerkat. The beyond adorable appearance and size of the Meerkat Family Sculpture makes it a perfect accompaniment to garden gnomes, trolls, and fairies.
  • You don't have any animal garden statues: A Meerkat makes for an excellent first animal yard statue. It doesn't look very wild, easily fits in with other decor, and adds a cute touch to any backyard.
  • You could use a "welcome" sculpture: Every garden should have a sculpture that literally welcomes guests. Make them smile with the Meerkat Menagerie Welcome Sculpture.

Find the best in Meerkat decor and outdoor resin garden statues at Design Toscano. Buy these and any other items on our site between today and July 5th and get a 20% discount as part of our 4th of July Sale!

Which Garden Statuary Works Best with a Meerkat Sculpture?

Meerkats are one of the cutest animals on the planet. The black markings around their eyes and on their paws make them look like little bandits and when they stand on their hind legs, Meerkats look absolutely adorable. Given their charismatic attributes, it's no wonder that Meerkats are excellent inspiration for animal garden statues. Sculptures of these confiding little animals are a wonderful, seriously cute addition to any garden but they complement some garden decorating themes better than others.

Meerkat Clan StatueFor example, although you could put the Meerkat Clan Statue and a classic stone garden angel next to each other, that's not going to look nearly as good as pairing Meerkat sculptures with other African animals. Meerkats are native to the arid plains of southern Africa so they look much better when they share a garden with sculptures like the Lioness with Cub or Gigi, the Garden Giraffe Statue. Both of these sculptures are as representative of dramatic, amazing African wildlife as statues of Meerkats.

Meerkats also work very will with garden fairies. They have a similar mischievous appearance, are small, crafty creatures, and are right at home in flower beds and vegetable patches. They will look right at home when sharing a backyard with the Fairies of the Meadow and just about any garden gnome statues.

Which Meerkat Sculpture Is the Most Adorable?

The Meerkat Family SculptureAfrica is famous for its amazing animals. Charismatic megafauna roam its plains and savannahs and thousands of tourists make safaris to such places as the Serengeti and Kruger National Park to see zebras, lions, and elephants in the wild. The large animals may take center stage but they aren't the most adorable animals in Africa. That title could probably be given to a small species of mongoose known as the Meerkat. Large family groups of these feisty little animals occur in arid environments of southern Africa.

Their dark paws, nose, and eye patches give them a mischievous look that adds to their already cute appearance and when they stand on two legs, Meerkats are downright adorable. It's hard not to be a fan of the Meerkat and we pay them homage with detailed, realistic garden statuary. The Meerkat Family Sculpture depicts a trio of these cute creatures as they are typically seen in the wilds of Africa. As one Meerkat rests on its haunches, another adult stands high up on two legs to peer around while a baby Meerkat follows suit.

Meerkats also live in burrows and the Out of the Hole Meerkat Sculpture captures this behavior with adorable realism. Combine it with the Into Hole Meerkat Sculpture for a clever pair of cute animal garden statues.

Enjoy 20% off the regular price of cute Meerkat Sculptures and anything else on our site until January 2nd as part of our End of the Year Sale!

Which Meerkat Sculpture for the Garden?

Kalahari Meerkat Statue: Out of HoleHow can you not like Meerkats? Animated and entertaining, they stand on their hind legs to scan their surroundings for both friend and foe. Their black-tipped fingers and dark markings around the eyes give them a wonderfully mischievous, cartoon-like appearance. It's too bad that these beautiful little animals only naturally occur in southern Africa but at least you can add them to your yard in the form of realistic, detailed animal garden statues. The main question is which one to put in the garden?

The Meerkat Gang Sculpture is a classic depiction of these noble little creatures and looks beautiful in any yard.Try putting it near the flowers so the Meerkats can guard them with bright, watchful eyes.

You can also mix Meerkats with outdoor garden water fountains when you buy the Meerkat Family at the Watering Hole Sculpture. Just as they would do in their dry Kalahari Desert homeland, a family of Meerkats hangs out at a precious watering hole and stand on their hind legs to get a better view of their surroundings.

For one of the cutest of Meerkat statues, see the Kalahari Meerkat Statue: Out of Hole. Just as the name of the statue implies, a cute Meerkat peeks its adorable head out of its burrow to inspect your garden.
