Ancient rituals in both the Biblical era and in other religious constructs suggest to us that the birthplace of the human species was in the garden. Some believe that occurred with Adam and Eve, while other belief systems simply imply that a majestic garden was the first place where all living creatures began.

Adding statues to the garden are the perfect way to do so. And now, with many of our statues at 70% off, there can’t be a better time to create that perfect mystical garden.

When it comes to gift giving, purchasing a marble bust may be the last thing on your list.
Nobody ever thinks to buy one, as they seem for some a dated concept not applicable to contemporary décor. The truth is, there could not be anything further from the truth, as marble busts for sale will not only keep your holiday budget on track, but make a gift giving statement that nobody else will. Here are some excellent reasons why you should consider this unique gift item.

Nothing is more romantic than a marble bust like our Cupid and Psyche marble statue
Marble busts are not the most contemporary gift, and that’s exactly what makes them perfect holiday items. They will add ambience and elegance to any décor, whether that is traditional or contemporary.

If you have a gardener on your list of gift giving this year, now is the best time to help them prepare for the upcoming gardening season. Many gardeners start planning their garden themes months ahead of time, sometimes as soon as the first frost occurs in colder climates. While many others may give practical garden gifts, you may want to stand out from the crowd and consider a gift for your favorite gardener that is as unique as a garden fairy statue. Garden fairies make ethereal statements that will certainly delight during the holiday season.
A garden fairy statue
such as a simple summertime fairy on a swing will make the gardener on your list feel like the gardening season is just around the corner, rather than months away. When the weather outside is frightful, breath a breath of fresh summer air into your gift that will delight any gardener.
Garden cherub statues serve the same purpose, but can also add a touch of religious sentiment to a holiday gift. A holiday gift that comes in the form of cherubs at play
will certainly add an angelic ambience to any season of gift giving.
When you are doing your holiday shopping, you don’t have to leave garden gifts to the gardening months. Whether your favorite gardener is religious, or simply loves mystical outdoor pieces, this is the perfect time of year to purchase a holiday gift that your gardener may never purchase for themselves.

Japanese landscape design has become one of the most popular exterior design themes of contemporary day. There is something about a Japanese garden that invites peace and tranquility in your outdoor space. To create a Japanese landscape design, you will use the elements in nature you are provided with, and arrange them to reflect the peaceful reality you seek. Whereas Western gardens use more flora and fauna to create this harmony, a Japanese garden will use them in more natural and subtle ways.
For example, a tortoise statue
believe it or not is a Japanese symbol that can add an incredible omen to your outdoor space. The tortoise is believed to be a symbol of immortality in the Eastern world, and when incorporated into a garden, provides support, good luck, and longevity to its owner.
Ponds and hills are also a common theme in Eastern gardens, as these represent tranquil elements of nature. You can use an Asian inspired outdoor garden water fountain
to accomplish this goal, or create a pond in your outdoor area if you have the space. As well, religious outdoor statues
are symbols of significance in Japan, and are used frequently for dwellers to invite blessings from the heavens into their indoor or outdoor space. A religious statue outside near your entrance will beckon the gods of your choice to bless peace on your garden and home.
When it comes to Japanese landscape design, Japanese principles and your imagination are all you need to incorporate the peace of mind you seek into your garden.

Implementing Buddha into an exterior decor is a desire for many seeking tranquility and relaxation in their garden space. If you are creating an outdoor space that you will use for meditation or relaxation purposes, a Buddhist garden is an excellent way to do so. But if you want to create a Buddhist garden, follow the tips from the experts, as there is a way to do a Buddhist garden the Buddhist way.
A large Buddha statue
or the addition of the religious outdoor statues
of your choice are standard elements if you desire to bring the religious and harmonious balance you seek into any outdoor decor. But this is not enough, you will want to use authentic Buddhist principles to accomplish this goal.
Elements of a Zen Buddhist garden include a quiet place for sitting, numerous paths for walking meditation, and a body of water such as outdoor garden water fountains
or a running pond. A place for feeding birds, fish, and other animals is also conducive to respecting the harmony and balance in nature, a key principle in Zen Buddhism.
These are simple Buddhist principles that you can easily incorporate into any outdoor living space. When you add these basic elements, you combine the harmony and balance of nature with the inner peace you wish to seek.

When you are thinking about adding some wall sculptures to either your interior or outdoor design, there are a few things to take into consideration. As easy as it is to change the look of your entire space through one piece of Egyptian art
or religious symbol, you want to make your selection being as informed as possible. A dramatic statement is sure to be made by any piece of wall art you choose, but you can be dramatic and subtle at the same time if you do it right. Here’s how to do it.
The first thing to consider is the space of your wall where you want your sculpture to go. It is better to choose the space before you choose the sculpture, as it will be easier to accommodate the sculpture to your space than vice versa. Knowing how much space you have will dictate whether you are going for something simple, or something extravagant.
Next you will need to determine what color theme to use. You can go with an Art Nouveau look such as a neutral tone on a neutral wall as seen in these lovely French Greenmen wall sculptures
. For a more dramatic statement, use a dark sculpture against a neutral wall, or a lighter sculpture against a darker wall such as this rendition of Venus, a contemporary twist from more traditional Greek garden statues
No matter how dramatic or how subtle your desired effect is, wall size and shade are your two most important considerations when choosing wall sculptures.
