Bronze Garden Sculptures for People with Refined Tastes

Mermaid of the Isle of CapriBronze has been a popular, esteemed medium for sculpting for literally thousands of years. While marble and modern day resins can be used to make garden statuary that is absolutely exquisite, the rich, classic beauty of finished bronze is always a sight to behold. Bronze sculptures add a refined touch to every type of garden and are admired wherever they happen to be displayed. They also make very fine gifts and the following will be much appreciated by anyone with a taste for fine decor:

  • The Mermaid of the Isle of Capri: Statues of mermaids have been used as garden decor in many a European estate. The blend of beauty, mystery, and intrigue adds an enchanting dimension to the garden and looks especially nice when piped for a use in a fountain. Our beautiful bronze Mermaid of the Isle of Capri more than accomplishes this with her classic, Mediterranean look.
  • The Birth of Venus Bronze Statue: The legend of Venus was wonderfully captured by Renaissance painter Botticelli. One of the most well known and beautiful paintings of his time, that classic masterpiece continues to be immortalized to this day in the form of reprints and sculptures. Our heavy bronze depiction of Venus was carefully modeled after the Venus from Botticelli's painting and expresses a similar timeless beauty.

An Animal Yard Statue for the New Year

Zairen, the Zebra SculptureHappy New Year! We are just getting started with 2014 and although winter conditions might make garden statuary the furthest thing from many of our minds, this is actually the perfect time to look for animal garden statues. No, you wouldn't want to put fine resin garden statues on display in the yard during freezing weather but some of those statues work very well as interior decor and looking now gives you more than enough time to pick out the most appropriate sculpture for spring. For example, Zairen the Zebra sculpture adds texture to a spring backyard with one of the most beautiful, wild designs found in nature's palette. This high quality, detailed statue also adds a touch of wild and incredible Africa to the yard in its most adorable form.

If the yard already has its quota of adorable and cute statues, why not give it a touch of Asian wild beauty with the Power and Grace Sumatran Tiger Sculpture? This quality tiger sculpture captures the incredible power and savage beauty of the world's largest big cat with accurate orange and black colors, and the broad, distinctive head shape shown by wild Sumatran Tigers. Complement this and other high quality garden sculptures with the deadly elegance and beauty of the Grande Black Panther Statue.

Merry Christmas from Design Toscano!

Ascending Angel SculptureToday is December 25th and for kids of all ages, this is the biggest day of the year. Merry Christmas from all of us at Design Toscano and Happy New Year! We hope that 2013 was a wonderful year for all of you and that 2014 is filled with success, peace, and happiness. It's still winter but that means there's plenty of time to think about new garden statues for the backyard, home, and business. They might come in the form of fantastic animal garden sculptures like the Catch of the Day Grand Bear Sculpture and adorable animal garden statues such as the Yorkshire Lambs. Both of these animal statues demonstrate the realism and quality shown by all of our animal sculptures including classic Victorian style items such as the Regal Lion Sentinel of Grisham Manor.

If the backyard could use a new angel, the Ascending Angel Statue is one of our more dramatic items while the Praying Basilica Angel Statue captures the classic beauty of a devout, detailed angel with flowing locks, gown, and big feathered wings. If gargoyle figurines are more to your liking, we have sculptures of those intimidating creatures to meet just about every taste. The powerful Large Florentine Gargoyle Statue is one of the more classic gargoyles in our collection while little Emmet the Gargoyle wins awards for being the cutest creature on the block.

Dragon and Gargoyle Bronze Garden Sculptures

Winged Gargoyle of Naples Solid Bronze Garden Statue - SmallSome folks might stick to garden gnomes and an angel statue or two when it comes to backyard decor but some of us would rather decorate the yard with gargoyle figurines and majestic sculptures of dragons. Neither decorating theme is better than the other because it all comes down to a matter of personal preference. Gnomes tend to be cute while gargoyles are by nature, somewhat more intimidating. However, they are also wonderful, classic decor. Since gargoyles can be found on the ramparts of castles and some of the world's most majestic Gothic cathedrals, you could also say that those winged monsters are sort of like royalty when it comes to garden decor.

Given their special status, it's only logical that we offer dragon and gargoyle sculptures in bronze. This classic, beautiful metal alloy was a favored sculpting medium for the ancient Greeks and continues to be used by professional artists to this day. The color, texture, and durability of bronze can help turn a good quality statue into a masterpiece. Both of our bronze dragon and gargoyle sculptures fall into this category and make a prize addition to distinguished gardens of any home and business. The Asian Dragon with Power Orb is a fantastic, enchanting statue that can also be used as a fountain while the Winged Gargoyle of Naples makes for an exceptional welcoming sculpture for the backyard.

Animal Garden Sculptures from Prehistoric Times

Animal garden statues provide a dramatic beautiful natural touch that every garden needs. Since gardens are, by definition, green space, that may sound ironic but a realistic animal yard Jurassic-Sized Triceratops Dinosaur Statuestatue just adds that bit of extra natural appeal. Animal statues pay homage to the unique beauty that has been created by nature's palette, even if they happen to be creatures that went extinct millions of years ago.

In the case of dinosaurs, that happened to be 65 million years in the past and although those magnificent massive reptiles have been long gone, we haven't stopped being fascinated with those amazing prehistoric animals. Kids in particular are especially taken with dinosaurs and will love any of our fantastic prehistoric statues. Our Jurassic-Sized Triceratops makes for a majestic prehistoric animal addition for any backyard and will be a major hit at a hotel or restaurant. Kids of all ages will be amazed when they see the fine details that help to bring this and other dinosaurs "back to life".

Another of those impressive Dino sculptures is the Jurassic-Sized Velociraptor and the T-Rex Dinosaur Garden Sculpture.

Put a dinosaur animal yard statue on display to turn your garden into the most unique backyard on the block!

Statues for Garden Can Also Be Statues for Business

It depends on the business but the right type of statues can work as marketing pieces and provide a fun atmosphere that keeps bringing customers back to your store. Statuary does especially well in hotels and restaurants. For example, greet customers with one of our beautiful outdoor water fountains and they can't help but feel impressed. These and other high quality resin garden statues add to the atmosphere of your business, give it character, and thus make it easier for people to remember.

If someone sees a stunning animal yard statue in the lobby of a hotel, restaurant, or other place of business, you can bet that they are going to mention it to family and friends. Use a unique sculpture like our Bigfoot Statue or Tian Shan, the Panda and pictures of those statues (along with your place) will be making the rounds of social media. It's fun, easy marketing that works on its own and helps makes a business stand out from a crowd of other stores, hotels, and restaurants.

Pay Nothing for Regular Shipping on Gargoyle Figurines from Design Toscano!

Talysus the Terrible Gargoyle SculptureGargoyles have graced the ramparts of castles and cathedrals for centuries but thanks to modern resin technologies, we can also put these fantastic sculptures on display in our very own gardens. The detailed, bat-like wings, scales, and other intimidating features of this old Medieval form of art are an essential aspect of any Gothic decor theme, while the classic appeal of gargoyles makes even the most ferocious gargoyle suitable for a garden that also features angels, animal garden statues, and beautiful outdoor water fountains. The timeless appeal of the gargoyle makes this a suitable sculpture for both indoors and the outdoors and a fine gift for someone who enjoys the fantasy genre.

Whether you buy a gargoyle statue to be used as a winter holiday gift, or to decorate your own place, today is a great day for purchasing a gargoyle or two. Buy gargoyles today and tomorrow from Design Toscano, and you pay nothing for regular shipping! The absence of regular shipping costs makes today an excellent day to buy cute little Emmet the Gargoyle Sculpture for the garden, or Talysus the Terrible for the backyard. Both of these modern gargoyles would fit right in with their old Medieval counterparts because they are crafted in the same intimidating style (although Emmet is much more adorable!).

Cute Squirrel Animal Garden Statues

Simone, the Squirrel Hanging SculptureSome animals are fierce, others are rather mundane (like the good old dairy cow), and then there are the animals that can't help but be cute. Although those who love to feed the birds might beg to differ, squirrels fall into the "cute animal" category. Those arboreal rodents earn that distinction with funny little faces, big round eyes, and cute little paws. If you have trees in the backyard, there's a good chance you have a few live squirrels coming to visit now and then. However, even if your garden doesn't play host to visiting squirrels, you can still pay homage to their adorable looks with realistic squirrel statues.

Simone, the Squirrel Hanging Sculpture is carefully crafted to look just like a real, live, furry backyard squirrel. It mirrors the looks and behavior of the real animal by holding up its bushy tail, clinging to a tree, and looking alert with perky ears and bright eyes. Hang Simone on a tree, fence, or garden wall to give the yard an adorable touch.

Although Simone is certainly cute, it might play second string to the downright adorable Lindburg, the Flying Squirrel Statue. With outstretched arms and legs, Lindburg is always ready to take flight from a desk, bookcase, or backyard bench. If you have never seen a flying squirrel, Lindburg is an excellent representation of these cute, nocturnal animals.

Enjoy a 20% discount off these beautiful animal garden sculptures and everything else at the Design Toscano site when purchased by Thursday, December 5th!

Enchanting!

Treebling from NC reviewed the Trip to the Moon Wall Sculpture

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

I am a huge George Melies fan. When I saw this Trip to the Moon sculpture I had to buy two. One hangs above our outdoor movie screen in the garden and it looks perfect perched up above silent films streaming in the moonlight. The second one is hanging in my bedroom. They are very well made. Easy to clean . The ease of hanging both was a big plus. I would recommend this to anyone!

I love my tortoise!

Kristin from Montgomery - AL - USA reviewed the The Tranquil Tortoise Garden Sculpture: Giant

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

Simply put he's just awesome. I love everything about this statue. I have been wanting one of their giant tortoises for a long time and finally got this beauty. He looks so real. I have people comment on how life-like he is. I can't wait to put him out near my grape arbor. In the picture he does seem to look a little smaller but I'm attaching a picture of him next to my dog to give you a bit of side by side comparison. He is a pretty substantial piece. An absolutely great addition to my yard (I now have 4 turtles) and by far the biggest and most realistic. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed by this statue. He makes me happy just looking at him! If you have the money splurge! He's worth it and I hope you love yours as much as I love mine.
