Three Perfect Places for a Tiger Sculpture

Powerful Pounce Sumatran Tiger StatueThe Tiger has been respected, revered, and feared for ages. Despite its popularity, this beautiful big cat is rarely seen, is endangered, and is only found in wild, remote, protected areas in southern Asia, and a tiny corner of Siberia. Its popularity is related to its beautiful orange and black pelt, large size, and combination of strength and grace. These attributes are shown by all of our tiger statues, including the very realistic Powerful Pounce" Sumatran Tiger Statue.

A high quality animal statue like this makes a wonderful statement in any home, garden, or place of business but they look best when displayed in certain spots. Three of the best places to showcase a tiger statue are:

  • Right by the back door: Put your tiger next to the back door leading to the garden to impress and greet guests. The powerful "Jungle Cat" Leaping Bengal Tiger looks especially impressive when displayed near the back door or any entranceway!

 

  • In a prominent place: In the wild, tigers prefer to stay out of sight but in the backyard, their power and beauty should always be put on display. The Grand Scale Lying Down Bengal Tiger Statue works well as centerpiece decor in any yard.

Save on Tropical-themed Garden Statuary for Summer

Tiki Gods of Fire and WaterSummer days are here and these warm, lazy, fun-loving times are meant to be experienced outside the home. This is a well-known, practiced fact for anyone who loves the outdoors or enjoys spending time in the garden or backyard. Those of us who also love garden decor know that certain statues and other items are perfect for these wonderful summer days. Although just about any sculpture looks great in a summer garden, this is the best time of the year to put tropical-themed statues on display.

Tropical sculptures like the Tiki Gods of Fire and Water love the heat and show it with exotic, Polynesian flavor. With its blend of fire and water, this tropical fountain sculpture will act as centerpiece decor at any summer garden party.

Tropical decor also adds life to the backyard with bright, vibrant colors. The Tropical Crabs Wall Sculptures are painted with realistic reds, yellows, and blues shown by their live counterparts on tropical shores. These fun decorations add a colorful touch to garden walls, patios, the side of the pool, and vacation homes.

Complement the bright colors of those Tropical Crabs with the equally colorful and exotic Scarlet Macaws Wall Sculpture. This fine wall decor shows the same bright hues as the wild, spectacular macaws that fly over the jungles of Costa Rica, Brazil, and other tropical destinations.

Western-Themed Animal Garden Statues

Great White BuffaloThe animal yard statue is fun, easy decor that works for every backyard. Animal statues can be used to make a bold statement about the types of animals you like, can be used to showcase the stunning beauty found in the animal kingdom, and can also add a touch of drama to the garden decorating scheme. Of course, different types of animal statues also work with different types of decorating themes, including decor associated with western states and provinces.

One of the signature animals of the great "Wild West" is the Bison. Huge herds of Bison used to roam the plains and prairies of the west and were an important source of food, clothing, and shelter for several Native American cultures. Although the numbers of Bison have been greatly reduced, populations can still be found in some protected areas and private reserves. The Great White Buffalo sculpture captures the power and beauty of this powerful animal with fine details and a muscled appearance.

The Gray Wolf is another animal associated with the western frontier and still occurs in Yellowstone National Park, and wild remote areas of Montana and Idaho. Put the Howling Lone Wolf Garden Statue on display to give it a wild, provocative, wilderness look. Pair it with the Clever Coyote Statue to complete your western look.

Buy $75 or more of animal garden sculptures and other fine Design Toscano decor and enjoy free standard shipping until June 15th.

Give a Boost to Summer Business with Garden Statuary

Three Amigos Spitting DolphinsThe warm days of summer are wonderful for many reasons. They act as a welcome respite from winter (especially when it's a brutal one), encourage us to take full advantage of the outdoors, and are a great time to explore and experience sites close and far from home. For many a business, summer is also an important time of the year. With more people outdoors and eager to enjoy time outside the home, more customers walk through the doors of restaurants, hotels, and a wide variety of stores.

Every business owner knows that it pays to use strategic marketing that brings customers into a place of business during the summer months, and garden statues can be an excellent, high value part of the marketing equation. However, not just any garden sculptures will do. We aren't talking about putting a gnome or two on display at a hotel but unique, spectacular statuary like the Lion of Florence Sentinel Statue and Base to welcome guests at the door of your hotel or restaurant. Majestic sculptures like this and the Grand Stone Egyptian Sphinx Statue make a place of business stand out from competition and will keep customers talking about their experience long after they have gone home.

Bronze sculptures like the beautiful Three Amigos Spitting Dolphins Trio can also do wonders for hotel decor and adds a regal touch to any place of business. Essentially, fantastic sculptures like this make people want to go in, stay for dinner or shopping, and come back with friends on another day.

Fantastic Flying Resin Garden Statues

Wingspan Seagull StatueGarden statuary has become much more than classic sculptures, angel statues, and gargoyle figurines. Thanks to advances in resin technologies, we can also decorate the yard with beautiful, realistic animal garden sculptures, exquisite garden fountains, and a host of unique statuary for a fraction of the cost associated with marble and other sculpting mediums. Statuary can also be engineered to hang from trees and even look as if it's flying through the backyard. 

What? Flying garden statues? Yes, decor like the incredible Prehistoric Pteranodon Dinosaur Statue can be hung from trees or rafters to help it "fly" through the yard or place of business on wings that span ten feet. Put this incredible garden sculpture on display in one corner of the yard and the equally life-like Pteranodon Scaled Dinosaur Statue in another part of the backyard for full flying effect.

If the garden or home would look better with a flying sculpture of a modern-day animal, you might like our Wingspan Seagull Statue. This realistic statue of a gull has a big, six foot wingspan, and can be hung from a tree in the backyard or inside the home. It also looks great when displayed near a pool.

Some people believe in the power of luck and others don't but no matter what you believe, it can't be denied that some of the luckiest garden statuary is also some of the most distinguished.

Religious Outdoor Statues for a Christian Home

When adding decor to the backyard, we tend to use garden statuary that is a reflection of the things we enjoy, our attitudes, and our beliefs. For a Christian home, this decor can take the form of works that features phrases from the Bible, a white dove carrying an olive branch, sculptures for outside that feature a number of Christian symbols, and other types of decorations.

Jesus Loves the Little ChildrenOur Jesus Loves the Little Children Garden Sculpture is a wonderful, high quality, Smiling Christ statue that adds a cheerful touch to any garden. Put this happy, endearing sculpture in a prominent place as a reminder of your Christian faith. Complement this fine statue with a classic Holy Family Sculpture. This beautiful garden decor is closely modeled after similar Holy Family statues that have graced the peaceful gardens of Italian churches and estates for hundreds of years.

Many Italian gardens also display Christian-themed sculptures in miniature grottos and other quiet corners of the backyard. Our Meditation Grotto of Sorrento evokes the same sense of wonder with fine, hand-painted details.

No Christian-themed garden is complete without a stone garden angel. The Angel of Ravenna is one of many fantastic garden angels in our collection. Like the beautiful Intercession Angel: Praying Hands Religious Statue, it was directly cast from antique statues found in an Italian cathedral.

The Soothing Sounds of Garden Statuary

Spirit of the Ocean Two Tier Seahorse FountainMany resin garden statues are static, high quality depictions of animals, deities, fairies, and other interesting subjects. They showcase their beauty and details in fine, still form and are meant to be admired at length from every angle. However, some garden statues are more dynamic in nature and make use of sound just as much as the fine appearance of a beautiful sculpted form. One such type of sculpture is the garden fountain. Outdoor water garden fountains combine the soothing sounds of water with intricate sculpted details to add a naturally elegant touch to any backyard.

The Spirit of the Ocean Two-Tier Seahorse Fountain makes use of two basins, gently falling water, and sculpted seahorses to add a soothing touch to the garden. The sounds and appearance of this unique garden statue will remind guests of quiet seashores, and the sounds of the endless sea.

Buy and save on the Bright Waters Otters Garden Fountain Sculpture for a work of art that combines gentle falling water, illuminated basins, and detailed sculptures of inquisitive otters. The natural appearance of this fountain makes it ideal for backyards that are decorated with animal garden sculptures, abundant vegetation, garden fairies, and fantasy-themed decor.

Buy any of our beautiful garden fountains from today until May 31st and enjoy a 20% discount.

Three Reasons for Using Garden Décor with a European Flair

European gardens are well known for hosting beautiful garden statuary, sculpted hedges and topiary, and stunning fountains. Large, extensive gardens in major cities also display a variety of antique sculptures, some of them from the Victorian era, others from older times. There are several reasons for using similar decor in your own garden, including the following three reasons:

Ascending Angel SculptureA classic, classy appearance: Few garden statues are as distinguished as a classic stone garden angel or other sculptures that would look right at home in the garden of an old European estate. The fantastic Ascending Angel Sculpture is just one of several classic angels in our collection.

 

  • They add character to any backyard: Even one European-style garden sculpture will transform the character of your backyard. Put statues like Hebe, the Goddess of Youth, or a fine replica of the famous Venus de Milo sculpture in the yard and your place takes on an entirely different, more distinguished appearance.

 

  • Wonderful resin statues for a great price: Although the statues in our collection are fit to be put on display in large estate gardens throughout Europe, they are far more affordable than any antique sculpture. Our Marcellus Sculpture, a high quality replica of a Roman era work of art, is one such statue.

Animal Garden Sculptures that Leap into Action

Jungle Cat Leaping Bengal Tiger StatueAnimal sculptures can show easy-going, peaceful scenes from nature, the majesty of a maned African Lion, or cute farm animals. Although there is nothing wrong with animal statues that happen to be adorable, cute, or depictions of animals at rest, some of us would also love to have animal sculptures that celebrate their energy, speed, and other wild qualities. Such dynamic statues add personality to the garden in the form or wild, savage beauty and natural drama, especially when they seem to leap into action.

The "Jungle Cat" Leaping Bengal Tiger Statue is one such sculpture. Although few people have witnessed the leap of a Tiger and lived to tell about it, this stunning statue allows you to put that rare display of strength and beauty on display in your own backyard. If you would rather go for an animal sculpture with a more classic appearance, the "Unbridled Power" Equestrian Horse Statue shows the powerful elegance of a stallion rearing back on its hind legs. Both of these animal statues make an impact when placed near the entrance to the backyard or when showcased as centerpiece items.

Although the two sculptures mentioned above are certainly majestic, the Large Leaping Sea Dolphin Statue is one of the most stunning animal statues in our collection. This wonderful depiction of a leaping dolphin is an excellent sculpture for the lobbies of hotels and restaurants, and big backyards.

See our extensive collection of animal garden statues to find the best animal statue for your home or place of business.

Which Stone Garden Sculpture Looks Best in Your Backyard?

Madame & Monsieur EscargotWhen it's time to decorate the garden with backyard decor, we sometimes realize that it's also time to buy a new garden statue or two. That realization might come from noticing that the backyard looks rather empty with just one or two sculptures, that the statues currently on display in the garden look old and worn, or that the backyard would look better with a new decorating theme. However, once you realize that the garden is in need of new statuary, you then have to pick out the best statuary for the yard.

The easiest way to find the best animal yard sculpture, fountain, or other garden statue is to browse the Design Toscano site. There are literally hundreds of unique garden statues that are arranged in several distinct categories, and an easy to use search function. For example, if the backyard could use an animal statue for the side of the pool, check out our collection of wild animal statues. The Baby Fur Seal Statue is a nice option as is the brightly colored Madame & Monsieur Escargot, Enormous Garden Snail Statue Set.

If the backyard trees could use a bit of decor, you might want to decorate them with striking greenmen sculptures like Whispering Wilhelm Tree Ent Sculpture or even "Pongo, the Hanging Baby Orangutan" Statue!

However, if a classic garden statue would look best, we have a large selection of classic statuary to choose from including a large sculpture of Thalia, Muse of the Garden.

The Beauty of Big Animal Outdoor Statues

Mombasa, the Garden Giraffe StatueThe animal yard statue comes in many shapes and sizes. It can take the form of a small, cute sculpture of a pig, be displayed as a captivating sculpture of a stalking panther, or be a huge, life-sized sculpture of a wild animal. The grand-scale animal statues in our collection are some of the most impressive statues you will ever see and are a wonderful addition to any backyard.

They also act as great decor for a business, especially restaurants and the service industry. The Giant Male Silverback Gorilla Statue is even bigger than the Lowland and Mountain Gorillas that frequent the jungles of Africa. This highly detailed statue shows the same characteristics as the real animal except that it has a hand large enough to be used as a seat. It will also act as a big, beautiful conversation piece no matter where it is put on display.

Mombasa, the Garden Giraffe Statue is a spectacular sculpture that reaches a height of close to eight feet. The long legs, very long neck, and beautiful reticulated pattern are closely modeled after the actual giant herbivores that roam the savannahs of Africa. Put this majestic animal sculpture in the garden or a place of business and guests will be talking about it for years.

Happy Mother’s Day from All of Us at Design Toscano

Frances the Flower GirlHappy Mother's Day! We hope that this special day is a good one for both mothers and their families no matter where they may live. Since May is such a beautiful month, we also hope that the weather is nice enough to enjoy the beauty of a garden, park, and the outdoors. Perhaps Mom will receive one of our resin garden statues as a gift. The lovely "Frances, the Flower Girl" Statue is a fine gift to receive and give.

Frances looks even better when complemented with the Fanny & Frank Farmer Garden Statues.

If Mom happens to like birds and you have yet to give her a garden statue, she will love the Great White Egret Statue. This animal yard statue is crafted with fine details that make it look just like the actual elegant egrets that wade in the waters of coastal marshes, southern bayous, and other wetlands. Pair this beautiful animal sculpture with the hilarious "Delightful Dancing Ducks" Welcome Sign to put a smile on the face of Mom, or to give your own garden a bit of summer cheer.

Statues for Garden Can Be Anything from Fountains and Angels, to Animals and Urns

A Stone Garden Sculpture for a Unique Backyard

Blushing Babel, The Bashful DragonUnique garden statuary is needed for a unique backyard. An average, everyday sculpture just won't do for gardens that are decorated with carefully sculpted Bonsai vegetation, that make use of an exquisite Japanese rock garden, or have greenmen statues on some of the trees. The same can be said for backyards that already make use of our beautiful animal garden statues or one of our classic Bigfoot statues. Such backyards look best with statues that are both enchanting and unique, and the best place to find them is at the Design Toscano site.

The Dragon of Falkenberg Castle Moat Lawn Statue adds an intriguing Medieval touch to the garden. Put this lawn swimming dragon next to one of your fountains or on a stone garden wall for full effect. It can be complemented with any number of equally fantastic resin garden statues, including such unique sculptures as Apex, the Winged Dragon and "Blushing Babel, the Bashful Dragon" Statue.

The "Strike a Pose Zen Yoga Frog" Statue is a one of a kind animal yard statue that will put a smile on your face every day of the week. This fun frog is just about guaranteed to be a topic of conversation at all of your summer garden parties and looks even better when paired with the exotic "Jungle Forest Tree Frog" Statue.
