Take 20% Off Animal Garden Statues of Elephants

The Sultans Elephant Sculptural Side TableMany cultures consider the elephant to be one of the most noble creatures of the animal kingdom. Pachyderms are admired for their ability to remember, their impressive size, and comical appearance. However, as anyone who has worked with elephants knows, their large dimensions also make these animals far more powerful than any person. People in southeast Asia have taken advantage of the elephant's strength to build houses, temples, and other structures and have recognized their value by regarding them as a symbol of good luck. Western cultures also view the elephant as a sign of good fortune, especially when it raises its trunk into the air.

Given their unique, impressive appearance, it comes as no surprise that elephant sculptures can be incorporated into furniture to create items that blend exotic beauty with colonial class.  The Sultans Elephant Sculptural Side Table and the Jaipur Elephant Festival Glass-Topped Cocktail Table are just two of several beautiful elephant sculptural furniture items in our collection.

The noble pachyderm also looks just as impressive when displayed in the garden. The Good Luck, Trunk-Up Baby Elephant Statue will be one of the most realistic animal garden statues in your collection and looks even better when complimented with the incredible Enormous African Elephant Statue.

Enjoy a 20% discount off elephant decor and all of the high quality, unique items from the Design Toscano site from now until Friday, February 7th.

Create an African Savannah with Animal Garden Statues

Gigi the Garden Giraffe StatueThe second largest continent on the planet is renowned for its many cultures and majestic wildlife. The grassy plains and wide open savannahs of eastern and southern Africa in particular host some of the most incredible wildlife displays on Earth, including vast herds of Zebra and Wildebeest, huge Nile Crocodiles lurking in the rivers that cross the plains, trumpeting herds of African Elephants, and powerful prides of Lions on the prowl. Taking a safari to national parks and protected areas of Africa is the best way to experience such incredible savage beauty. However, even if Africa does happen to be on the other side of the globe, you can pay homage to the wildlife of the savannah with the right selection of resin garden statues.

Start your display of African animals with Gigi the Garden Giraffe. Those funny, long-necked mammals rarely sit down but Gigi shows how they do it with realistic details. As with all of our realistic animal garden sculptures, this Giraffe statue is carefully painted by hand to demonstrate the same distinctive pattern as the Giraffes than stroll the African savannahs.

No African scene would be complete without Zebras, Lions, and Elephants. Cute little Zairen the Zebra makes a striking black and white patterned statement, the incredibly life-like Lioness with Cub statue shows a mother Lion carrying her young cub, and the Good Luck, Trunk Up Baby Elephant Statue is a very realistic depiction of a young Pachyderm.

The Noble Beauty of Outdoor Elephant Statues

Enormous African Elephant StatueElephants are one of the most easily recognized and well known animals on the planet. Although wild herds of these large, impressive animals only occur in protected areas and remote regions of Asia and Africa, just about everyone in the USA and Canada is familiar with the elephant. Given their rather odd, unique appearance and immense proportions, elephants can't help but make an impression and this is partly why they have been associated with luck for centuries. The appealing nature of elephants have also made them the subject of hundreds of paintings, emblems, and sculptures. In Victorian gardens, they ranked among the most noble of animal garden statues and continue to fulfill that role in modern times.

The Good Luck, Trunk Up Baby Elephant Statue expresses the class and noble beauty of the Pachyderm with finely crafted details. Standing more than five feet tall, it raises its trunk as a sign of good fortune and adds an exotic yet classy touch to any yard. This lifelike animal yard statue also works very well as a conversation piece in a hotel or restaurant and looks even more realistic when paired with the truly Enormous African Elephant Statue. This fantastic depiction of an African Elephant stands nearly eight feet tall and shows the same textured hide, long tusks, and drooping trunk as the magnificent beasts that rule the plains of Africa.

Give your garden a beautiful, magnificent dose of good luck with these elephant statues and other stunning resin garden statues from Design Toscano.

The Bubbling Beauty of Ceramic Outdoor Garden Water Fountains

Clearwater Cove Ceramic Koi Fish FountainA fountain is a wonderful addition for a backyard. In blending the art form of sculpture with the natural beauty of water, a fountain mesmerizes with its graceful, refreshing appearance and peaceful, bubbling sounds. In fact, some might say that the sounds made by a fountain are more important than its appearance because without the water, a fountain converts back into a dry statue. The movement and intriguing sounds of flowing water bring a fountain to life and the modern Clearwater Cove Ceramic fountains accomplish this with unobtrusive, easy-going lines.

Each of the three Clearwater Cove fountains are unique ceramic sculptures that somewhat resemble vases that feature a bit of sculpted decor. In actuality, they are ceramic fountains designed to add a gentle touch to their surroundings while putting the focus on the sounds of bubbling, flowing water. Bring the soothing sounds of bubbling water and good luck to the backyard with the Elephant Fountain, a cheerful touch with the Frog Fountain, and the fun, classic garden look of Koi with the Koi Fountain. Each of these beautiful ceramic fountains are fired twice in a very hot kiln to give them a durable, waterproof glaze and are an excellent, peaceful complement to decks, and indoor and outdoor garden at both home and office.

Get 20% off these beautiful ceramic fountains and any of our new arrivals when purchased from today until tomorrow, May 15th!

Galloping Horses Sculptural Oliphant TuskAsian garden statues can help turn a basic backyard into a beautiful, breathtaking garden but such fantastic decor isn't limited to the outdoors. There are also dozens of elegant Asian-themed items meant for the interior of the home and office. A sculpture of Guan Yin, the Chinese Goddess of Compassion and Mercy, adds an interesting, elegant touch to your living room or office. The intricate, delicate details of this pretty sculpture honor the most popular deity in the Chinese pantheon.

The Galloping Horses Sculptural Oliphant Tusk makes a somewhat more dramatic statement when put on display in your office or den. Modeled after antique Chinese ivory sculptures, this item shows a herd of horses in full gallop and the details make it seem as if they are about to come to life. Some of the stallions rear their heads into the air to neigh while others stretch their necks forward to win their private race. Although this sculpture does not use actual ivory, it's made from a carefully designed polymer known as "Mandarin Ivory" that mimics the color, beauty, and texture of an actual Elephant tusk.

The Ancient Tang Horse Iron Statue shows a horse that is a bit more relaxed and a lot more tame. This foundry iron cast sculpture is a replica of a bronze sculpture that dates back to 700 AD. It's placed atop an elegant marble base and is a truly royal work of art.

Bring Good Luck to Your Home with Outdoor Elephant Statues

Good Luck, Trunk-Up Baby Elephant StatueElephants are considered to be good luck in Thailand and other parts of southern Asia. Rumored to have excellent memories and known to be fiercely loyal to their herd and protective of their young, elephants embody a number of noble characteristics. To demonstrate reverence and appreciation for pachyderms, statues of these powerful, intelligent, and unmistakable animals can be seen in many hotels, restaurants, and shops in southern Asia. They also make for interesting garden statuary, especially when the sculptures are as realistic as the ones offered by Design Toscano.

Put the Trunk-Up Baby Elephant Statue in the yard and neighbors may wonder if you are harboring a private zoo or the most exotic of pets. This statue is about as realistic as you can get without having a real, live elephant roaming through the garden. Kids and adults alike will love the detailed wrinkles and playful features of this cute baby elephant.

The Triumphant Entry Elephant Statue might not be life-size but it makes up for that with highly detailed features and a proud, realistic appearance. Its three foot height and more than four foot length also make it big enough to impress and bestow good luck upon your guests.

Framed Art for an African-Themed Room

Africa is a huge continent filled with a multitude of interesting cultures (many of them thousands of years old) and amazing megafauna. Adventure abounds and there are fantastic sights to behold in many of the African countries. Ernest Hemmingway was enthralled with Africa and spent some years there as a big Makulu Replica Printgame guide. Many an international tourist hopes to experience the wild plains of the Serengeti at least once during their lives and with such exotic colorful appeal, it's easy to see why Africa is also an excellent theme for decorating.

In the garden, outdoor elephant statues are essentials for any African theme. They conjure up images of gray behemoths marching across dusty African plains as lions roar in the distance and herds of Wildebeest and Zebras graze the savanna grasses. Off to the side, a Meerkat statue or two can be included to further authenticate and solidify that African feeling. Inside the home, there are also plenty of decorations that can be employed to pay homage to Africa. In addition to Egyptian decorations, the Makulu replica print in particular is one of the most evocative and beautiful, framed, African-themed works of art. The depiction of a mother giraffe kissing the head of her baby is absolutely priceless by merit of the naturally artistic poses the giraffes make and the endearing subject matter.

In addition to outdoor animal statues, heighten your African theme with framed paintings. Framed works of art are 25% off from February 22nd to February 27th!

The Meaning of Animal Symbolism in Feng Shui Principles

If you are designing your home or garden around Feng Shui principles, you may have heard that the addition of animals into your theme will help your Feng Shui.  Here we discuss the importance of the animal symbolism in Feng Shui design, to help you better choose what animals you would like to invite into your home decor. 

The elephant is a sacred creature in many cultures, and in Feng Shui is known to symbolize wisdom.  Many cultures also consider decor such as outdoor elephant statues to symbolize other things such as fertility, fidelity, longevity, and good luck.

The lion is a symbol used in Feng Shui and many Egyptian decorations to embody bravado and courage.  It is said that when a pair of lions are facing an entry point with both of their front feet touching the ground they are protecting your home or business wealth.

The Tranquil Tortoise Garden Sculpture - LargeA tortoise statue is another famous Feng Shui symbol that embodies endurance, wealth, longevity, good luck, and a happy family.  Slow and steady wins the race is the symbolism you will add to your home with a Feng Shui tortoise.

If you want to attract money to your home, it is said that a frog is the way to do it.  Legend has it that a frog will visit a home during a full moon when the home is expected to receive good fortune or news pertaining to wealth.

When you want to add a little extra wish into your home, doing so with Feng Shui animals is a clever and very symbolic way to do so.

Creating Serenity in Your Garden With Accent Pieces

Many people that embark on a landscape design adventure do so with the intention of creating an outdoor space that is something they can escape to, or entertain in with tranquility.  If this is your vision for your outdoor living space, there are a number of ways to do so with the addition of a simple accent piece.  Whether your outdoor theme is Egyptian, Greek, or a simple garden plan, an accent piece can transform any outdoor space into an outdoor oasis.  Here is how to create the serenity in the garden of your dreams.

The Tranquil Tortoise Garden Sculpture - GiantThere is nothing more serene than the beauty of a Greek goddess, and this is making Greek garden statues very popular right now. Tuck away the birth of Venus in one of your landscape corners and enjoy her calming effects as she watches over your gardens.

Animals are revered in many cultures and design motifs and are a stunning way to create a retreat in your backyard.  The tranquil tortoise statue is a symbol of good fortune that reportedly will bring you and your outdoor space years of happiness. Elephant pieces in your outdoor space are also symbolic for imparting wisdom and serenity and have been used to create this ambience in centuries old cultures.

Whether you choose to create serenity subtly through one of these accent pieces, or in a broader statement through religious outdoor statues will depend entirely on your garden theme and personality.

Fall Is The Best Time to Update Your Garden Theme

If you are waiting until the next Spring season to start changing the look of your outdoor living space, you may want to reconsider.  When you are designing your outdoor space, you want to take your vision and make it come to life with your budget.  As such, there is no better time to do that than in the Fall, when garden furniture and decoration costs come down considerably.  Here we talk about ways to spice up your garden theme and take advantage of Fall garden sales.

Lord Earl Houghton's Elephant Wall SculptureNo matter what area of the country you live in, most furniture and garden outlets start bringing their prices down on major pieces in the Fall or harvest season.  If you have been considering adding outdoor water garden fountains but have hesitated in the past due to budget, the Fall may be the perfect time to do so.  Garden fountains are typically an investment piece, but require less maintenance in the Fall and are easy to install even when the temperatures start to dip.

Statues are typically another investment piece into outdoor garden decoration themes. The Fall is a great time to invest into garden statues that are being reduced prior to the next season.  You can change your entire outdoor space with the implementation of some ethereal greek garden statues, or add some wisdom to your garden with some outdoor elephant statues or wall sculpture

When you want to add some more expensive pieces to your garden or outdoor space, the Fall is the best time to do so.

The Meaning Behind Religious Statues

Good Fortune Elephant Sculptural Garden ChairFor those that are considering adding a unique element to their home or garden decor, you may want to consider adding the elegant touch of a statue.  A religious statue in any decor theme whether that is a contemporary theme or one of an ancient era can add an entirely new tone to your room or garden that sets the stage of the theme you are considering. 

An outdoor elephant statue for example is one that in some cultures embodies wisdom and fertility from the Greek gods, or good fortune as well.  Elephants are religious symbols used by a variety of ancient traditions to embody these qualities.  If you want a design piece that relates religious significance without being over the top, an elephant statue is a very elegant way to do so.

There are few religious statues more symbolic than a large Buddha statue.  The Buddha statue can serve as a symbol of allowing a Hindu god into your living space, or it can simply serve as a lucky charm that brings balance and harmony into your design theme.  Harmony is the religious significance behind the Buddha statue, and you do not need to be a Hindu follower to appreciate the balance it provides to your home.

If you want your room or garden to make a statement of significance, religious outdoor statues or an interior religious statue can be all you need to create just that significant statement.
