Resin Garden Statues to Honor the Memory of Loved Ones

Angels of Alghero Religious StatuesGarden statuary can be used for more than decor. While we do put high quality animal garden sculptures, garden angels, and other classic sculptures into a garden or backyard to help beautify it and give it character, we can also use religious statues for inspiration and paying homage to our belief systems. We can put in outdoor garden water fountains to bring the soothing sound of falling water into the backyard, and the permanence and beauty of sculptures make them perfect for remembering loved ones who have passed away.

The Angel of Grief Monument Statue is a classic piece that was designed by William Wetmore Story in memory of his dearly departed wife. Similar sculptures are seen in cemeteries and gardens to this day because they encapsulate the grief we feel upon losing a loved one. This statue pairs well with the Angels of Alghero Religious Statues and the stunning Intercession Angel: Praying Hands Religious Statue.

Cast stone memorial garden benches are another excellent means of remembering loved ones with garden decor. We have a variety of cast stone benches in our collection that can be personalized with the name of the dearly departed. The In Our Hearts Forever Personalized Cast Stone Memorial Garden Bench is one such item that reminds us of the love we still feel for the departed with a beautiful phrase.

Picking Out the Best Religious Outdoor Statues for Your Garden

Jesus Loves the Little ChildrenReligious-themed statues are a common, beautiful aspect of many gardens. Some of us opt for a classic stone garden angel while others prefer to decorate the garden with beautiful reminders of their faith. There are also people who opt for putting an impressive large Buddha statue in the garden and other Asian-themed religious statues. No matter what your preference is in terms of religious sculptures, you will probably find one or more perfect additions to the garden in our collection of religious resin garden statues. Here are a few tips for picking out the best religious sculpture for your backyard:

  • Pick out a statue that fits in with other garden decor: While most religious statues will easily compliment other garden statue decor, something along the lines of the Jesus Loves the Little Children Garden Sculpture will look much better in a backyard with cheerful gnomes, statues of children, and cute animal garden statues than more solemn sculptures.
  • Use angel statues for a garden with classic statuary: If you have a Victorian garden or one decorated with classic decor, there's a good chance that you already have a few fine angel sculptures. The beautiful Angel of Patience Sculpture will further highlight your fine collection of classic decor.
  • Try a Buddha statue for natural-themed gardens: Sculptures like the Jolly Hotei Buddha Statue and other Buddhas work very well with backyards that put the emphasis on natural decor.

Buddha Outdoor Statues on Sale

Great Buddha Garden SanctuaryNot all religious statues are depictions of garden angels or sculptures related to Christianity. Several of the religious-themed sculptures in our collection are depictions of the Buddha. When one travels to eastern Asia, sculptures of sitting, standing, and even laughing Buddhas are a common sight in temples, gardens, and parks. The serene look on the Buddha's face compliments an already peaceful garden and seems to blend in with the natural surroundings. For this reason, statues of the Buddha are often placed in grottos and other beautiful natural places.

A Buddha statue can have the same peaceful effect on backyards no matter what their size. The beautiful two and a half foot tall The Bodh Gaya Buddha Asian Statue adds a peaceful touch to a backyard when placed by the back door, placed next to a pond, or displayed inside the home.

If the garden would look better with a large Buddha statue, our Giant Buddha Monument-Sized Garden Sculpture is a perfect fit. This large, four foot, seated Buddha is modeled after similar Buddha sculptures from Thailand and has the same, very peaceful appearance. For a Buddha with his very own grotto, put the classic Great Buddha Garden Sanctuary Sculpture in the backyard.

New Garden Statuary for Spring

Spring means warmer weather and a welcome respite from the cold but it's also all about renewal. After the long, cold winter (and this year was particularly brutal), it's a relief to see green grass, fresh flower buds on backyard trees, and birds singing in the garden. The backyard looks fresh, revived, and ready to be decorated with your favorite stone garden angel, animal garden sculptures, and other cheerful decor. To mark this natural celebration, match the garden's fresh, new look with new garden statues from Design Toscano.

St. Fiacre, the Gardener's Patron Saint Statue is a nice addition for folks who are serious about gardening. Legend has it that Saint Fiacre was able to create a huge, beautiful healing herb garden with little effort. Hopefully, some of that gardening prowess will rub off on those who put his statue on display.

Another good candidate for a new spring garden statue is our Cherubs d'Amour sculpture. This cute little statue blends an angelic appearance with the innocent beauty of children and is a nice addition for a garden decorated with classic statuary or religious statues. Pair it with the equally adorable "Basket of Treats" Cherub Statue for full effect.

Backyards and gardens are meant to be positive places where we can escape the stress of everyday life.

Large Buddha Statue or Small Buddha Statue?

Giant Buddha Monument-Sized Garden SculptureSome of the largest statues in the world are sculptures of the Buddha. Carved out of mountainsides, shaped from natural rock formations, or painstakingly sculpted from different stones that are then put together, huge Buddha statues never fail to leave most people in awe. This was one of the main reasons for making them so large in the first place but it's not the only size shown by the Buddha statue. Smaller statues are actually the norm and this is demonstrated by many Buddhist temples in Asia. Although the largest statue is the centerpiece of the temple, there is typically a number of other, smaller sculptures in various shrines here and there on the temple grounds. The different sizes of the statues make it easier to be reminded of the Buddha and the importance of striving for humility.

The size of the Buddha statue for your garden depends on how you want to display it. If it's going to be the most important of all your resin garden statues, then a large Buddha sculpture is probably the best one to get because such an item tends to take center stage. If you would rather have the Buddha sculpture act as a simple highlight to an Asian-themed garden that also features a large tiger sculpture and other decor, then you probably need medium or small Buddha statues.

What Can Buddha Outdoor Statues Do for Your Garden?

The Great Buddha Garden Sanctuary SculptureStatues of the Buddha are a common sight in places like Thailand, Vietnam, and Nepal. Visit those and other predominantly Buddhist countries and you will be hard-pressed not to visit temples with huge, gilded sculptures of the Buddha. As awe-inspiring as those statues are, most of the Buddha sculptures in those and other places come in much smaller proportions. These are the statues that people place in their homes, businesses, and gardens to be reminded of spiritual quests and needs.

Statues of the Buddha can also be seen in many gardens in Europe, the USA, and Canada. Those sculptures find a place in those backyards sometimes because the owners subscribe to the Buddhist faith but most place them in the garden either because they have an Asian-themed backyard or because resin garden statues of the Buddha seem to fit in with just about any garden. Like many garden angel statues, sculptures of the Buddha are often depicted with a face that exudes tranquility. With closed eyes and a peaceful, gentle smile, the Buddha appears to be enjoying the most peaceful of dreams and plain happiness. No matter what sort of decorating theme is followed, a statue of the Buddha helps turn it into a place of sanctuary and peaceful retreat.

The Relaxing Beauty of the Seated Stone Garden Angel

Meant to bring peace to the garden or express a sense of mourning over a lost, loved one, angels have been shown in a variety of poses. They can be tall and intimidating as they tower above the garden with large, outstretched wings, look to the heavens with joy, or  they can be beautifully sad as they lower their head in a sign of mourning. Angels can also be seated as they ponder their surroundings in relaxed contemplation.

The Resting Grace Sitting Angel Sculpture captures the appearance and demeanor of the seated angel perfectly. With head resting on her hand, she contemplates your garden with a peaceful expression on her youthful face while the detailed folds of her long gown and feathered wings are a sight to behold.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall, Which Gothic Décor is the Fairest of Them All?

The Dordogne MirrorGothic decorations might not be everyone's cup of tea but even people who would prefer religious outdoor statues have to admit that a lot of Gothic decor looks just downright stunning. The thing about Gothic items is that many pieces are replicas of decor that were used in Europe during the Middle Ages and thus harbor a certain degree of romanticism. Suits of armor can remind us of dragons, chivalry, and heroes. Gothic tables make us and our guests feel like kings and queens as we sit down at them to enjoy platters of roasted turkey and duck. Gothic chairs and other excellent replicas of antique furniture are simply beautiful, functional works of art and that reflects the purpose of the original items.

The woodcarvers who made them were artists and masters of their trade. While they had to create items for nobility and the rich, being commissioned to make that chair or table also gave them a chance to show off their skills. That trend continued on into the eighteenth century and is demonstrated by items like the stunning Dordogne Mirror and Princess Caroline Vanity Table. Whether you feel like talking into these beautiful mirrors or not, both are fit for a queen.

Make a Statement with Gothic Tables

Effingham Gryphon Library TableJust as decor in the backyard says something about your garden, interior decor can speak volumes about your personality and tastes. It of course doesn't give the entire picture but it's probably safe to say that people who use more animal garden statues have a strong appreciation for wildlife. Folks who display statues of Greek deities probably enjoy classic works of art more than contemporary pieces. If religious outdoor statues are shown in the garden, they very likely reflect the belief system of the people who live there. However, statues aren't the only types of decor that offer a glimpse into the personality of the home owner. Furniture can also be used to show who you are are and what you stand for.

Use Gothic pieces like the Effingham Gryphon Library Table and guests won't fail to be impressed by the beauty of solid, carved mahogany. Its intricately carved legs and strong, enduring look will tell them that the owner of the home may have attributes that are just as distinguished and noble.

Serve tea or coffee to your guests on the Lord Raffle Lion Tea Table and they will realize that they are dealing with someone who believes in elegance and class.

Save on these and certain other pieces of furniture today and tomorrow at Design Toscano!
