Three Tips for Picking Out the Best Dragon Garden Statues

Asian Dragon of the Great WallDragon decor has been around a lot longer than a lot of folks realize. Some of the oldest wall decor in the world are depictions of dragon-like creatures from the ancient kingdom of Sumer. Dragons have also made their way into paintings, and are featured as statues in ancient China, Mayan Guatemala, and Medieval Europe. Of course, we can't forget about dragon decor in modern times either. Given that any evidence of real, live dragons has yet to be discovered, this decorating theme probably features the most enduring mythical creature on the planet.

If you have yet to pick out a dragon sculpture for your garden, these three tips will help:

 

  • Don't worry about the dragon sculpture fitting in with other decor: The reason you don't really need to worry about this is because since dragons are classic statuary, there is a dragon sculpture that will fit in with any decorating theme. There are even dragon statues that are simply adorable. "Blushing Babel, the Bashful Dragon" Statue is one such statue.

Monkey Business Welcome SignToday marks the last day to pay nothing for regular shipping on any of the quality decor and other items in our collection.

This unique way to welcome guests to the garden is hand-painted and crafted with fine, realistic details.

Resin Garden Statues and Décor Colored for the Holidays

Large Trumpeting SoldierHoliday decorations take many forms but if we want to follow a traditional decorating theme, we need to stick to certain color schemes. Combinations of red and green are the main colors of the holiday season but hues of icy blue and silver also have their place. Decor and statues carefully painted with those cheerful colors can spice up and refine a holiday display.

The Large Trumpeting Soldier Statue ranks among the most spectacular of classic holiday decor. Put one or two of these fantastic sculptures by the front door of the home, holiday display, or place of business, and guests will feel like they are walking into a magical winter wonderland.

While the "Enchanted Portal Fairy Door Wall Sculpture" doesn't look as traditional as Trumpeting Toy Soldiers, the colors and appearance of this unique decor do fit in with winter holiday decorating themes. The two little fairies are reminiscent of elves (they are fairy folk after all), and the shades of blue, white, and red will match the other decor in the room. Put this magical decor against the wall near the tree, or above an archway or hearth, and use it in the garden when winter is over.

There's still time to save on fine holiday decorations. Enjoy free regular shipping on stunning garden statuary, unique décor, and other items in the Design Toscano collection until tomorrow, December 19th.

Enjoy 20% off a Fantastic Bigfoot Statue

Bigfoot the Garden YetiBigfoot is arguably the most legendary, mysterious, crypto-creature enigma in North America. Despite the absence of a specimen, clear photos, and unequivocal films, thousands of people believe that this strange animal exists. Their belief is strengthened by the presence of hundreds of huge footprints, occasional pictures, sound recordings, Native American legends of Bigfoot-like creatures, and sightings by many a credible witness. Whether Sasquatch is a living, breathing being, or not, remains to be seen but that shouldn't stop anyone from putting a Big Foot Garden Statue on display.

We based the appearance of our Bigfoot sculptures on dozens of eye-witness descriptions because we wanted to create the closest thing to Bigfoot outside of having an actual Sasquatch in the backyard. This is why our Bigfoot, the Garden Yeti Statue has a large, domed head, is covered in dark fur, and does indeed have large feet. These are some of the characteristics described by people who claim to have seen Sasquatch (and pass lie detector tests when questioned about it), and also help lend a realistic, unique look to our Bigfoot sculptures. From now until December 19th, a 20% discount also makes Bigfoot decor that much better.       

Take 20% off the unique sculptures, resin garden statues, and fantastic decor for garden, home, and business at Design Toscano until December 16th.

Bronze Garden Sculptures of Angels and Mermaids

Celestine Angel Solid Bronze Garden StatueResin garden statues are the perfect substitute for full-sized marble sculptures. Whereas a large marble statue must be commissioned and costs thousands of dollars, resin sculptures look just as good, can take just about any form, and are far more affordable. Although resin can also be made to look like bronze, there's nothing like the appearance of a statue crafted with bronze in the traditional lost wax method. Such sculptures look simply breathtaking and act as heirloom works of art. They can also put the crowning touch on gardens that already feature a fine assortment of angel sculptures and other garden statues.

The Celestine Angel Solid Bronze Garden Statue is a fantastic bronze with a beautiful antique verdigris patina. The fine details in the wings and flowing gown of this classic, realistic angel will make it one of the most stunning pieces in any collection. Show this beautiful decor in a new spring garden or display it as a prized, centerpiece statue inside the home.

Mermaids also make excellent bronze sculptures. The classic Mermaid of the Isle of Capri is modeled after similar mermaid statues that grace many a Victorian garden and European estate. This beautiful bronze mermaid acts as high quality centerpiece decor on its own, or can be used as a classy fountain for a backyard pond or the pool.

Dolphins Statues and Outdoor Garden Water Fountains

Monumental Five Dophin Spitting Bronze StatueDolphins rank among the most beloved of animals. These intelligent marine mammals seem to enjoy playing in the waves of the sea as much as or even more than people, can learn a wide variety of tricks, and have even saved people from drowning. It's hard not to admire dolphins as they swim next to a boat and jump into the air with spinning leaps. Not surprisingly, these sleek animals have been featured in art for literally thousands of years. Depictions of dolphins can be seen on frescos and pottery that date back to ancient Greece, and they have been frequently immortalized in sculpted form.

Given their aquatic nature, they also make wonderful, fitting sculptures for garden fountains. The Monumental Five Dolphin Spitting Bronze Garden Statue is one of our most impressive fountains. Each of the beautiful sculpted dolphins in this bronze heirloom piece spit water from their mouths and are carefully modeled after the real Bottlenose Dolphins that play in the waters of the Caribbean.

The Dolphins in Tandem Solid Bronze Garden Sculpture is another stunning fountain that depicts everyone's favorite marine mammal at play. This beautiful bronze statue is a powerful, stunning addition to any garden, and works especially well as hotel decor.

Head to the Basil Street Gallery for Romantic Decor

Lucina, Goddess of Light LampDecor can be exciting, peaceful, dramatic, or just meant to add a touch of a beauty to the home.

Fossils as Design Toscano Decor

Saber-toothed Tiger Skull ArtifactFossils aren't just put on display in museums. They also act as classy, fine decor for the home and office, and high quality fossils can sell for thousands of dollars. A real sculpture of a fossil makes a fine statement in any home but the high cost is a barrier to most budgets. Unless you are an expert at finding your own high quality fossils, the best solution to buying fossils for less is in our collection of high quality decor.

The Saber-toothed Tiger used to roam the open plains of North America and Europe just 10,000 years ago. Like many large mammals, although it was fairly common, it went extinct at the end of the last Ice Age. We know that this huge feline existed by merit of the fossils that were left behind. Many have been found in the La Brea tar pits in southern California, including skulls that look just like our Saber-toothed Tiger Skull Artifact. This quality resin piece is carefully and closely modeled after the actual fossil skull.

If the den would look better with a fossil that dates back a bit longer than 10,000 years, you might like the Triceratops Dinosaur Skull Fossil Statue on Museum Mount. This exquisite resin sculpture is crafted to closely resemble the actual fossilized skulls showcased in more than one museum.
