Colorful Sculptures for Outside

Garden statuary has been crafted from such varied mediums as wood, bronze, plaster, and stone. For centuries, marble was the preferred medium of choice because this type of stone is hard yet easier to work into detailed curves and shapes than granite and other stone sculpting mediums, and is also available in a beautiful range of colors. The popularity of marble as a sculpting medium has resulted in many modern day garden statues being made with the same suite of pale colors. Although there's nothing wrong with garden statues painted with the same range of pale shades as actual marble sculptures, there's also nothing wrong with decorating the garden, home interior, or business with much more colorful statues.

Giant Garden Gecko LizardOur new Leaping Bengal Tiger statue adds a striking touch to any garden with the orange, black, and white colors of this legendary big cat. Display this colorful sculpture near flowerbeds, bushes, or other vegetation to highlight its realistic appearance.

The Giant Garden Gecko Lizard is another of our more colorful animal garden statues. The bright, shiny green of this unique wall decor is highlighted by bright yellow toes. Complement this beautiful lizard statue with Iggy the Iguana. Although Iggy won't be climbing the walls of your home, he does lend a colorful, realistic touch to the entranceway of any backyard.

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.

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.

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.

Three Reasons to Put Gargoyle Figurines in the Garden

Florentine GargoyleWe all have our favorite garden statuary items. Some of us put the focus on garden fairies because we love their blend of detailed beauty, nature, and magic. Others stick to replicas of stunning antique sculptures, and some people prefer to decorate the yard with an animal yard statue or two. However, no matter what you might prefer in terms of statues or decorating themes, a gargoyle statue will make the backyard look better. The following are three reasons why this is the case:

  • Gargoyles are in a class of their own: Created to intimidate evil spirits and frighten Medieval peasants, gargoyles rank among the more unique of sculptures. Put something like the Florentine Gargoyle Statue on display and you will have the most unique backyard on the block.

 

  • Gargoyles are conversation pieces: Unique statuary is always going to spark conversation, and gargoyles are no exception. Not only will the Argos Gargoyle Sentinel Statue protect the garden, but it will also entertain guests and be the talk of your summer party guests.

Wall Decor in the Form of a Garden Angel Statue

Brixton Abbey AngelWhen we think of angel sculptures, most of us have classic angel statues in mind. These are the majestic angels that we see in churches, in Italian courtyards, and in many a garden statuary collection. There are many fine angel statues like this but there are also angel sculptures that look like children, that can be used to remember loved ones, and that can be used as wall decor.

The Santa Croce Angel Wall Frieze is one of the more magnificent wall decor angels in our collection. Available in small and large sizes, this replica of an 18th century Italian work of art is a stunning display of angelic beauty. Although some angels stretch their wings, this angel nearly envelopes herself in a pair of highly detailed, huge, feathered appendages. This stand out decor can be hung on the inside of a large garden wall or used to add unique charm to the interior of home and business.

If the garden walls work better with a smaller garden angel, the Brixton Abbey Angel Wall Sculpture is a wonderful, functional piece that is modeled after an antique, Victorian angel statue. The beautiful little angel featured in this sculpture holds a large seashell that can be used as a bird bath, to showcase flower cuttings, or hold potpourri.

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. Although this child statue looks lovely enough on its own, it can also be used to showcase fresh flower cuttings or an ornamental plant. 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.

Gothic Garden Statuary for the Summer

Spirit of Nottingham Greenman StatueSummer is just around the corner and although the warm weather doesn't seem to match Gothic decorations as much as garden fairies and other more cheerful decor, there are Gothic items perfectly suited for warm June nights and the hot days of July. Several Gothic resin garden statues in particular are very much suited for the summer months. For example, no summer Gothic garden is complete without a greenman sculpture or two. Greenmen add an enchanting, mysterious touch to the backyard by literally putting faces on the trees. Put the Spirit of Nottingham Woods: Greenman Tree Sculpture on your favorite Oak or Maple to help bring it to life, and pair it with the frightening Poison Oak: Greenman Tree Sculpture if you dare!

Instead of putting a garden fairy statue in the yard, put the Hobgoblin of Harwich Manor Garden Statue on display. Legends say that this funny, furry creature guards vacant castles, keeps, and estates from Trolls and other nasty creatures.

Our Nature's Wanderer Sculpture will also make a fine addition to any Gothic-themed yard. This cloaked wizard will look right at home as he rests on his staff next to a flowerbed or in one of the wilder corners of your garden.

Take 25% off of any of the Gothic decor in our collection when purchased by Friday, May 9th.

If you already have a garden fairy, then you already know that there is always room for another, especially when it can highlight the beauty of your garden flowers.

Although most garden fairy sculptures look right at home in or near a flowerbed, the Fairies of the Meadow Garden Statues wouldn't want to live anywhere else. These lovely little fairies take care of flowerbeds and show it with flower petal dresses and flower cuttings in hand.

Ella, the Littlest Flower Fairy Statue is another cute fairy that looks right at home when placed next to the flowers of summer. If a classical fairy is more to your liking, the exquisite Pondering Fairy of Essex Garden Statue is one of several fine options in our collection.

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.

Give the Backyard a Unique Down Under Look with Australian Animal Garden Statues

Kouta, The Climbing Koala SculptureThe garden decorating season is here and most of us mark this time of the year by planting vegetables and flowers in the backyard and shopping for new resin garden statues. We all want to find the best deals on garden statuary and make use of decor that lends a unique look to the backyard but this can be a challenge when you already have a good selection of statues to choose from. This year, instead of buying a new stone garden angel, you may want to consider statues of Australian animals. There are few places on the planet that have as many unique and signature animals as Down Under and any of those creatures will give your garden a unique, exotic look.

Instead of putting a statue of a mischievous squirrel in your favorite backyard tree, decorate it with Kouta, the Climbing Koala. This realistic animal garden statue is nearly as adorable as the actual Eucalyptus munching animals that add charm to Australian woodlands. It can also be displayed on a garden wall.

Complement Kouta the Koala with another wild, signature animal of the Australian outback, the kangaroo. The Kangaroo and Joey Australian Outback Statue is as large as the actual hoppers that spring across the Australian landscape. Put this life-like beauty in the garden and neighbors will wonder where you managed to find such an amazing pet.
