How to Decorate the Garden with a Bigfoot Statue

Bigfoot the Garden YetiA legendary creature is said to roam the wild lands of North America. Tales and many a witness describe a huge, hairy beast that walks on two legs and haunts the deep forests and swamps of the Pacific northwest, the southern states, and even the river valleys of eastern Ohio. It only comes out at night and although no one has ever taken a definitive photo of the creature, hundreds of people insist that they have seen it and many have also made casts of its giant  footprints. It has been called "Bigfoot" on account of those huge feet but that's just the most recent name given to this cryptozoological beast. Different Native American cultures also refer to it as Sasquatch and Genoskwa, and some believers call it the Great North American Ape!

No matter what you call Bigfoot, a statue of the large, hairy Hominid is a unique, wonderful addition to the backyard. While you could put Bigfoot, the Garden Yeti Statue on display right in the middle of the yard. a more realistic spot for a Bigfoot sculpture is under the shade of a large tree or in the recesses of the garden. This more closely matches its shy, retiring nature and will add realism to your collection of resin garden statues. Compliment the standing Bigfoot sculpture with the equally unique Bashful Yeti Tree Sculpture.

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.

Enjoy 20% off these sculptures and all of the religious statues in our collection when purchased from today until April 7th.

Which Sculptures for Outside Are Suited for a Natural Garden?

Black Bear and Cub Grand Scale Animal SculptureAs our backyards come back to life after the long, cold winter, we can reflect on some different types of gardens. Large estates can host a menagerie of classic garden statuary, animal garden sculptures, and other garden decor. More common, medium-sized gardens can show sculpted hedges, a stone garden angel here and there, and a few other resin garden statues. Small, urban gardens might not have as much space for grand scale statues but do have enough room for a few garden gnomes and potted flowers.

There are also gardens that put the focus on nature. These are the backyards where invasive plants are removed and native plant species are cultivated. Some garden space might also be left to grow on its own and provide more habitat for birds and small animals. Certain types of garden statues are well suited for these types of gardens and include such animal statues as the Mother Doe and Fawn and the Mother Black Bear and Cub Grand Scale Animal Sculpture. Both of these realistic and beautiful garden statue sets look right at home in a wilder, more natural garden. Another statue that looks right at home in a wilder garden is the Bigfoot, the Bashful Yeti Tree Sculpture.

Beautiful Bronze Outdoor Garden Water Fountains

Man with Shell Bronze SculptureA fountain is always a fine addition for a backyard. In fact, for many gardeners, it's the most important centerpiece decor in the backyard because it blends the soothing sounds and sights of running water with beautiful sculpted forms. Some of the most magnificent fountains are bronze and this is why we include a variety of these beautiful, classic fountains in our collection.

The Man with Shell Bronze Sculpture is a classic bronze sculpture that would be right at home on a Victorian estate or on the grounds of an ancient Roman villa. Although it can stand on its own as centerpiece decor, it looks best when water flows through the bronze shell and into your pond or pool.

Our Mermaid of the Isle of Capri is another classic bronze sculpture that looks simply magnificent. This bronze also works best as a fountain and has a shell that is piped for this purpose.

Smaller yet just as beautiful bronze fountains are also available including the Giant Jumping, Spitting, Leaping Frog Bronze Garden Statue. Caught in time as it leaps into the air, this bronze frog also spits a stream of water into your pond or pool. Pair it with the fun Darn Frog on Lily Pad Bronze Garden Sculpture for full humorous effect.

Dinosaurs: The Ultimate Animal Garden Sculptures!

Jurassic Sized Allosaurus DinosaurBig cats like lions and tigers make beautiful and stunning animal garden sculptures. We admire these top predators for their beautiful patterns and colors, their grace, and their power. However, as big and strong as these felines might be during the present day, in prehistoric times, they would have been outmatched many times over by the top predators of the Jurassic and Cretaceous. Those massive beasts comprised a variety of fierce dinosaurs, including the likes of Allosaurus and the famous T-Rex.

Although they went extinct millions of years ago, those ultimate land animals live on in museums, books, and on film. Thanks to the imagination and skill of artists who work with resin garden statues, you can also pay homage to dinosaurs with statues of them for the yard. Given their long lasting fame and amazing appearance, dinosaur statues are strong contenders for being the ultimate in animal garden statues. Our Jurassic-Sized Allosaurus Dinosaur Statue is a big, highly detailed dinosaur sculpture that shows the same predatory shape and demeanor of the actual, fanged beast (as far as we know!). Pair it with a small yet powerful Scaled Jurassic T-Rex Raptor Dinosaur Statue. Since such predators also need something suitable to chase, you might want to also buy the realistic Jurassic-Sized Parasaurolopus Dinosaur Statue.

A Gargoyle Sculpture to Guard the Backyard

Leo the Laughing GargoyleGargoyles have been around for ages. In ancient times, sculptures of gargoyle like creatures and symbols were sometimes placed on or near sacred sites to act as a form of spiritual protection. That belief continued in Europe during the Middle Ages with typical, fanged gargoyles being placed on Gothic cathedrals and castles. Similar gargoyles are used to this day to decorate gardens and home interior. Due to their classic, protective appearance, a quality gargoyle statue can look good in any type of garden.

If your backyard could still use a gargoyle or two, it might be time to buy one of our detailed gargoyle sculptures. Leo the Laughing Gargoyle Statue is one of the more cheerful gargoyles in our collection. This unique canine-gargoyle hybrid will be a hit at parties whether you put it on display inside the home or in the garden.

For a more intimidating gargoyle, we have several wickedly wonderful sculptures in our collection to choose from. The Castle Gate Gargoyle Statue is a classic, old time winged beast that looks very similar to statues on the walls of old Medieval keeps. The Abbadon Gargoyle Statue is an even more intimidating, highly detailed gargoyle that perches on top of a Celtic cube.

Add Enchantment to Spring Flowerbeds with Garden Fairies

Pondering Fairy of Essex Garden StatueThere are few things more naturally magical than the fresh, new flowers of spring. After several months of a backyard dominated by a colorless landscape of  cold white and dull brown, the bright colors of new flowers are especially welcome. As beautiful tulips and other flowers sprout from the recently thawed ground, they help to bring the garden back to life. One of the best ways to heighten their beauty is with certain types of resin garden statues.

Garden gnomes often pair well with flowers but gardeners looking for statues a bit more magical in appearance can't go wrong with a garden fairy sculpture or two.

You can keep those legends alive and enhance the beauty of your flower beds with lovely fairy statues like the Pondering Fairy and the Gazing Fairy Statue. Created by Evelyn Hartley, these beautiful, realistic fairies look best when placed near fresh spring flowers and will add beauty to the backyard on into the warm, lazy days of summer.

New and Beautiful Egyptian Art

The pharaohs haven't ruled for thousands of years but the art forms that were developed at that time endure to this day. Artisans continue to create and craft new Egyptian decorations that use the same bright blues, gold, and deep jet black as the original pieces. Those items also feature many of the same Egyptian deities and symbolism. One such beautiful little sculpture is the "Isis, Egyptian Goddess of Beauty" Statue. This fine statue is carefully crafted to show the details of her feathered arms and cobra skin dress, and is painted by hand in bright golds, carnelian red, and other striking colors shown by Egyptian art. This sculpture makes a fine gift and desk decor. Isis looks even better when paired with the "Osiris and Hathor" Deities of Ancient Egypt Statues.

New Garden Statuary for Spring

To mark this natural celebration, match the garden's fresh, new look with new garden statues from Design Toscano.

Beautiful Western-Themed Decor from Design Toscano

The Wild West Sharp Shooter SculptureThe western states and provinces appeal to many of us for their wide open spaces, scenic canyons, and rocky peaks. The west also beckons with big, beautiful skies, ancient cultures, and tales of life on the frontier. Although the days of outlaw towns, gunslingers, and bison hunts are a thing of the past, novels and the film industry remind us of those storied times. Other art forms also breathe life back into the wild west, including paintings and beautiful indoor sculptures.

Frederic Remington captured many a 19th century western theme on canvas. His works of art were inspired by events he witnessed and stories that he heard in taverns on the western frontier. Such stories helped him create paintings like the "A Dash for the Timber". Our canvas replica painting comes as close to the original as possible and shows the same harrowing scene of cowboys frantically racing for their lives. The beautiful hardwood frame makes this western classic fit for the walls of the distinguished of homes.

Western-themed decor also works very well for a desk or fireplace mantle. The Wild West Sharp Shooter Sculpture with faux verdigris bronze finish captures the essence of the rugged wild west with a sharp-shooting cowboy astride a rough and tough mustang.
