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.

Last Day to Pay Nothing for Shipping on Holiday Gifts, Décor, and More at Design Toscano

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. Since we are less than a week away from one of the biggest holidays of the year, these are also the final days to find the last gifts on the list and fantastic decor for the home or place of business. While it is arguably late to put up holiday decorations for this year, even a week or two of high quality decor is better than a month or more of average, forgettable decorations. Not to mention, you can always use that fine decor next year.

If you still need to find a suitable gift for the family joker, the "Monkey Business" Jungle Welcome Statue might be a winner. This unique way to welcome guests to the garden is hand-painted and crafted with fine, realistic details. You will know that the gift was much appreciated when you see it making an appearance at next year's summer garden parties and other gatherings.

As far as holiday decor goes, there are few statues as unique as the Zombie Claus Holiday Statue! Get this undead decor for fans of the zombie genre!

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.

Buddha Outdoor Statues and More on Sale at Design Toscano

Enlightened Buddha SculptureThe art of gardening is an important aspect of several Asian cultures. In some places, gardens are far more than a green patch for growing tomatoes, peppers, and tulips. They are also places where the trees are carefully sculpted to match the vision of the gardener, where paths can form intricate patterns, and where every rock and pebble has its proper place. Pay a visit to a Japanese garden and you will probably feel as if you are strolling through a work of art.
 
Asian garden statues are also an important part of Asian-themed gardens, a big role often being played by statues of the Buddha. Such peaceful sculptures lend character and tranquility to the yard, and are reminiscent of statues that decorate the grounds of temples and gardens in China, Japan, and Thailand. Not to mention, Buddha statues are by no means limited to an Asian-themed garden. The olive hues and classic details on The Enlightened Buddha Sculpture make this fine statue an excellent addition to any garden. It also works very well as interior decor and pairs well with the easy-going lavender and green hues of The Bodh Gaya Buddha Asian Statue. Gardens in need of a large Buddha statue can't go wrong with the Giant Buddha Monument-Sized Garden Sculpture.

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.

Beautiful, Natural Décor at Design Toscano

Spotted Dear, Forest FawnSome of the best decor is centered around a natural theme. Such sculptures blend in with and highlight their surroundings. They also lend an easy-going, pleasant, relaxed touch to the places where they are displayed, even if that happens to be inside a home or office. Many of those natural, easy-going works of art are animal garden sculptures. For example, the Spotted Deer, Forest Fawn Sculpture is a fine fit for a sun room, as a background statue in a library or den, or as a cute animal statue in a hotel or other business. Put this life-like depiction of a young deer in the garden during the spring and summer, and use it to lend natural beauty to the inside of the home when the weather turns cold.

The Black Bear Cubs Up a Tree is another excellent, unique decoration that lends a natural look to the yard, office, or interior of the home. Any of the three bear cubs in this sculpture would be a beautiful animal statue on its own. However, when all three are used in the same unique sculpture, it becomes a wonderful, adorable work of art fit for the garden, home, or place of business. Pair this interesting decor with our Bandit, the Raccoon Statue to augment the cute, natural look.

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.

King's Guard Sculptural Half-Scale Knight ReplicaIt's the holiday season and that means good food, fun decor, and plenty of parties. Since it also means that we will be seeing our fair share of guests, why not welcome them with high quality decor?

Put the King's Guard Sculptural Half-Scale Knight Replica by the front door, and family and friends will feel like they are walking into a place of royal residence. The armor on this beautifully detailed knight is modeled after the fine suits of Italian armor that were crafted to be heirloom works of art for Tuscan families of importance. Put a sprig of mistletoe or garland on him to give this knight a holiday touch.

For a truly spectacular welcome, put a 16th-Century Italian Armor Sculpture with Halberd by the door! This full, six foot tall suit of high quality resin armor is so realistic, guests will wonder how you managed to acquire a Medieval suit of armor replete with chain mail. They might also wonder about the seven foot tall halberd!

Pondering Pixie Stained Glass SculptureUnique statues and decor lend a distinctive look to a garden, business, holiday decorating theme, or any place where they are put on display.

Animal Garden Sculptures to Help Celebrate the Winter Holidays

Puppy Parade Welcome SignDecor is a big part of the winter holidays. Decorations help bring out the fun, nostalgic feelings, and cheer that permeate the air during this time of the year. Many of us put a wreath on the front door, garland on railings and above entranceways, and decorate a tree with beautiful, cherished ornaments. Although traditional decor is a heart-warming, beautiful thing, you don't need to stop there. One of the great aspects of decor is that you can be as creative as you want. Some other types of decor can add that extra bit of holiday flair that many of us are looking for.

Certain animal statues can impress guests and make for a magical addition to the overall decorating theme. Give folks an extra cute holiday welcome with The Puppy Parade Welcome Sign. Put this cheerful sign at the front door and decorate it with garland and candy canes to put a smile on everyone' s face.

The Antarctic King Penguin Statue adds a unique, spectacular touch to any holiday display! Put this realistic animal statue next to the tree for a fun, creative look. Don't forget to accessorize it with a winter hat and scarf.
