It's never too soon to get ready for spring. Although the front yard might be covered in snow, and the backyard trees look leafless and gaunt, spring will be here before you know it. It will be a relief to walk outside without having to wear a winter coat and an exciting time to get reacquainted with the backyard oasis. Although we have to wait for warm weather to do any degree of work in the garden, we don't have to wait to buy new resin garden statues. In fact, it's better to buy them now while you have plenty of time rather than when the garden needs your time during the spring.
When looking for new garden decor, there are literally hundreds of garden statues to choose from but some of the most evocative are the greenman sculptures. This unique type of decor literally puts a face on trees and dates back to pre-Christian times in northern Europe when people used to worship nature. The Oak King Greenman Wall Sculpture is a classic greenman item that lends an old, enchanting look to any garden. It will also look right at home in conjunction with Gothic decor. To decorate the walls with a pair of haunting greenman sculptures, put the Somerset Greenwoman & Greenman Sculptures on display.

Although it might sounds like impossible, wishful thinking, spring is on the way! In many parts of the USA, spring will be here in less than a month, and in a mere two months, everywhere else. The snow and ice of this year's challenging winter will be melting and replaced by fresh green grass, and it will be time to put out your favorite garden statuary decor. To help you get ready for spring, we invite you to peruse our collection of new garden statues.
These are the latest in our collection of fine decor and include such beautiful animal garden statues as the "Veiled Chameleon" Statue. Each of the scales, horns, and other detailed features on this stunning statue were painted by hand to heighten its realism. If the garden could use something a bit more cute in appearance, check out the absolutely adorable little Sleeping Pig Statue.
If the garden needs a better welcoming sign, buy the new Dolphin Welcome Statue to greet guests with the soothing blue colors of the sea and the endearing beauty of dolphins at play. After guests walk in to the garden, augment the happy, cute spring atmosphere with the grand scale Gao Gao Giant Panda Statue.

Resin garden statues come in far more forms than the winged angel, stone lion, or other classic sculptures. Advancements in resin technologies and creative minds have given us a huge variety of absolutely beautiful garden statues to choose from, including fantastic greenmen sculptures, highly detailed animal garden statues, and exquisite, enchanting garden fairies. One of the many other types of garden statue is one that makes a classic statement for any yard and adds a royal touch to any business. This type of sculpture is the urn and it has been decorating plazas and gardens for more than 2,000 years.
The beauty of the urn is that it can be used as a regal place to display a beautiful flowering plant, or its sculpted beauty can stand on its own. The impressive Versailles Cherub Urn is modeled after the impressive urns that dot the extensive gardens of Versailles and like so many of the original royal French urns, this one features twin, winged cherubs and a beautifully carved surface. The four and a half foot height also makes it a proud, centerpiece decoration for any garden.
People who prefer the decor found on old Italian estates will love the Medici Greenman Architectural Garden Urn Statue. Like many sculptures in Tuscan gardens, this classic urn is decorated with classic greenmen on both handles. At two feet in height, it also works well as decor in a hotel, restaurant, or distinguished stores.

Garden statuary looks right at home in the backyard but many sculptures can also be leveraged for other places and situations. Quite a few garden sculptures make wonderful statements when displayed inside the home, and even more lend a wonderful, distinguished look to a business. One of the types of garden statues that makes the most positive statement for a business is the fountain. Fountains for the garden often act as centerpiece decor for a backyard and this tendency makes them perfect additions for many a business.
Although a beautiful, bubbling fountain will look great when placed in the garden or center area of stores that deal with clothing, arts and crafts, pet supplies, and other items, they work especially well in hotels, restaurants, or other situations that put the focus on hospitality. When clients walk into such establishments, we not only want them to feel welcome, but we also want them to feel special. We want customers to feel like they are being given regal treatment and few types of decor do that better than beautiful fountains such as the Cherubs at Play Sculptural Fountain or the classic Hebe, Goddess of Youth Garden Fountain. These are just two of many fountains in our collection that will stop customers in their tracks and keep them talking about your place of business. Put one of these beautiful fountains in the front lobby and a unique fountain such as the Bright Waters Otters Garden Fountain Sculpture in the garden or a small sun room, and customers will simply love to visit your place of business.

The creation of sculptures has always been a magical process. In a sense, when an artist molds marble, bronze, or high quality resin into a recognizable form, he or she is giving a bit of life to that Pegasus, dryad, or fairy. Statues of such magical creatures are like solid representations of the things we see in fantasy novels, films, and our own dreams. The fact that they are "mere" sculptures doesn't change the fact that they are also enchanting works of art that bring our imagination to other, more magical places.
The Poseidon: God of the Sea Grand-Scale Sculpture is one such statue. This spectacular classic statue is a replica of an 18th century sculpture that was in turn inspired by works of art that date back to the ancient Romans and Greeks. Poseidon's muscled appearance, piercing eyes, and formidable trident show why the powers of the sea should always be respected.
Garden fairies are among the most enchanting of resin garden statues and Fiona, the Flower Fairy Sculpture embodies that magical look with soft, lifelike details, a crown made of flowers, beautiful butterfly wings, and an exquisite fairy dress. Match the beauty of Fiona with the equally enchanting Daydream Fairy Sculpture.

Pay a visit to European castles and Gothic cathedrals that were built during the Middle Ages and you will see classic gargoyles glaring down from the ramparts. However, advances in resin garden statues have made it possible to put the same types of fantastic gargoyle garden statues on display right in your own backyard. They also make excellent gifts for anyone who appreciates unique garden decor but we should always try to pick out the most appropriate gargoyle statue for that lucky person.
To pick out the best gargoyle gift, start out by thinking about the garden where it will be put on display. If the person in question has garden gnomes and other cute statues, the Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyle Sculptures Set will look right at home. These super cute gargoyles will look even better in a garden adorned with the eye-catching Babble, The Gothic Gargoyle Statue.
If the lucky recipient of a gargoyle gift happens to enjoy Gothic decor, there is a very good chance that they already have a gargoyle or two. Take a look in their garden to see if they already have something classic like the Cathedral Gargoyle Statue or a fantastic, frightening beast like Scatheus, Guardian of the Shadows Gargoyle Sculpture.
Keep in mind that no matter which gargoyle you go with, when you buy that high quality statue from Design Toscano, it's going to look fantastic.

The tragedy of losing a loved one can never be fully expressed in words. Some poetry and eulogies come close but the grief that we feel when a parent, friend, or child has passed goes beyond anything that anyone can say. We express and deal with that grief by talking with friends, making donations to a charity that the deceased would have supported, or making visits to the cemetery. Another way to honor passed loved ones is with certain resin garden statues.
One of the most straightforward and easiest ways to remember a loved one is with a memorial garden bench. These garden statues are especially suited for this purpose if the loved one enjoyed spending time in the garden or if the backyard acts as a place for contemplation and retreat. We have several beautiful memorial benches that can be personalized with the name of the deceased and other information. The Forever Remembered Personalized Cast Stone Memorial Garden Bench has a marble, personalized plaque and the words "Forever Remembered, Forever Missed" engraved into the heavy cast stone. Our An Angel Came Personalized Cast Stone Memorial Garden Bench is just as beautiful and engraved with "When tomorrow starts without me, try to understand, an angel came and called my name, then took me by the hand." Compliment these and other memorial benches with the beautiful Divine Memories Angel Sculptural Monument.

Some decor is so good, it simply looks out of this world. These are the decorations that stop guests in their tracks and are nothing short of being simply breathtaking. However, a few unique garden statues are literally out of this world because they represent beings and situations that don't exactly hail from the place we call home. Take Roswell, the Alien Sculpture for example. This unique detailed statue of a classic "Gray Alien" doesn't depict anything that was born on this particular planet! Carefully modeled after descriptions of the aliens that were found in the supposed spaceship crash at Roswell, New Mexico, this statue shows the same huge dark eyes, large head, and long, spindly fingers as the legendary creatures from the downed flying saucer. However, the one in our sculpture is friendlier and seems to be waiting for a lift as it leans against its crashed spacecraft.
Speaking of flying saucers, you can add one to the garden with the Crash Landing Flying Saucer Alien Spacecraft Statue. This extraordinary garden statuary is the perfect compliment to the friendly Roswell Alien Statue and is carefully modeled after tales of metallic flying disks that have intrigued millions since the 1940s. This unique sculpture will be a great conversation piece for garden guests who also happen to be fans of the science fiction genre.

Of the various types of resin garden statues available, few are better known than the iconic garden gnomes. These happy, little bearded guys always make for a cheerful addition to the backyard (except perhaps the Zombie Gnombie), and are easy, excellent little statues to add to any garden. Although there are also other sculptures of magical little beings, the statue in question isn't really a "garden gnome" unless it sports a colorful little cap, and has a beard (in the case of male gnomes). Although typical gnomes like Handstand Henry wear simple yet colorful clothing, Axle Grease, the Biker Gnome shows that some gnomes follow their own set of rules.
Garden fairies can be recognized and easily separated from gnomes by their much more delicate appearance. All appear to have wings, are females, wear natural or rather angelic clothing, and are more likely to play tricks on people than the hard-working gnome. The beautiful Celtic Fairy's Perilous Perch Garden Statue exhibits all of these characteristics but Rhiannon the Archer Garden Fairy Statue is a reminder that fairies also have a tough, more dangerous side that should always be respected.
As far as trolls go, garden statuary depictions of those typically solitary creatures are far and few between. Nevertheless, Theodor, the Garden Troll Sculpture captures the odd and intriguing essence of these intelligent garden creatures with realistic colors and fine details.

No matter how big or small a collection of resin garden statues may be, there always comes a time to buy more garden statuary. We might want to change the overall decorating theme and lack the right type of statues, or we might just feel like putting something new on display. The following three reasons show when it might be time to buy a few dragon sculptures:
The backyard could use an infusion of Gothic Decor: Dragon statues are classic but they will also fit into any Gothic decorating theme. Whether you have a backyard with an emphasis on the creepiest of sculptures or one that pays homage to Gothic architecture, dragon sculptures fill an essential niche.
The gargoyles look lonely: In other words, if you already have three or more gargoyle statues but no dragons, it's time to balance that Gothic display with a dragon or two. You could go for a basic scaled beast like Desmond the Dragon Statue or just put a dragon skull in a flowerbed.
The house could use a unique rainspout: One of the funny things about dragon sculptures is that they don't just have to sit around and proudly show a ferocious, enchanting demeanor. They can also be used as rain spouts and look great when used for that function! Try Ranier, the Sculptural Dragon Rainspout.

We love to decorate the garden with the best in beautiful resin garden statues but the inside of every home and business also deserves to be decorated with high quality decor. Wall decor in particular is an essential part of interior decorating because the right pieces can use texture, colors, and character to add depth and dimension to any room in the house. Wall decor items can also blend art with function and often act as a fine finishing touch for just about every decorating theme. However, to truly decorate the interior of a home or business with style and class, you can't use any old wall decor. Only the best in high quality unique wall decor will do and that's why the Basil Street Gallery is the place to shop when searching for art to decorate the hallways and walls of your home, office, or business.
Add ancient Egyptian elegance with the King Tutankhamen Wall Sculpture. This beautiful wall sculpture captures the regal mystery of the ancient boy king with bold, authentic colors and appearance. The fact that it extends eight inches from the wall also ensures that this wall art will always make a royal statement.
Another of many unique, quality wall decor items in our Basil Street collection is the St. Louis Draped Sculptural Wall Accent Set. Use this elegant wall decor to add texture and provide four places to display exquisite objets d'art.

Dinosaurs are some of the most fantastic creatures to have ever roamed the Earth. It's hard to imagine massive, many ton, reptilian beasts prowling the same places where many of us walk to work but fossil evidence has shown us that this was exactly what was going on more 70 million years ago. We visit musems to learn about dinosaurs and see their skeletons, but the best way to celebrate those incredible animals is with realistic animal garden sculptures.
We have a fantastic collection of big dinosaur garden statuary and have recently augmented our prehistoric menagerie with several frightentingly good sculptures. Those new dinosaur arrivals include a statue of one of the largest carnivores in history, the Spinosaurus! Our Jurassic-Sized Spinosaurus Dinosaur Statue was carefully crafted to resemble the original, big mouthed monster that roamed ancient swamps and wetlands. Since this huge dino was even bigger than the famed Tyrannosaurus Rex, we can't help but offer it as a Jurassic sized statue.
Our Jurassic-Sized Deinonychus Dinosaur Statue is another new addition that won't fail to make an impression upon onlookers and garden guests of all ages. Carefully modeled after fossils of the original beast, our sculpture shows the same big, hind-foot claw and sharp teeth that Deinonychus used when attacking prey during the Cretaceous.
Find these resin garden statues and dozens of other realistic dinosaur statues for the backyard, hotel, and restaurant at Design Toscano today.
