Three Tips for Decorating a Meerkat Statue

Meerkat ClanThe Meerkat just might be the cutest animal on the planet. That's a pretty big statement but it's hard to argue with an adorable, little, furry creature that has wide, imploring eyes, and stands on its hind legs. Although statues of the Meerkat hardly need anything to make them more adorable, it's always fun to decorate them! These are a few tips for highlighting the beauty of Meerkat statues:

  • Colorful scarves: Meerkats always look cuter with a touch of color, especially a scarf on a cold, winter day. Put a red or blue scarf on an indoor Meerkat to give it, and the home, a cozy look. Each of the members of the Meerkat Family Sculpture deserves a cute scarf.

Happy 2015 from Design Toscano!

Les Filles Joyeuses Neoclassical UrnHappy New Year! January first signals the end of the holiday season. Although some might say that the winter holidays don't truly end until the final minute of the Super Bowl, most would agree that such a special day belongs in a category of its own. In the meantime, we can start to take down the holiday decorations, enjoy our new gifts, and relax after a weeks of shopping, parties, and being merry.

While you put your feet up and relax in front of the hearth, you can also think about decor for a spring garden, and fine decor for the interior of the home and business. Functional statues like the Les Filles Joyeuses Neoclassical Pedestal Urn work well in all of those situations. During the winter, this beautifully detailed decor can act as a refined piece, or as a planter at the office and inside the home.

Save on Beautiful Animal Garden Sculptures of Birds at Design Toscano

Staverden Castle Peacock on an Urn Garden StatueBirds are some of the more charismatic of animals. Many show brightly-colored plumage, add beautiful, natural music to the garden, and are a lot easier to watch than deer, bears, and other mammals. Put out a feeder or outdoor garden water fountains that act as bird baths, and you can watch everything from woodpeckers to jays and colorful finches in your own backyard.

Birds also make wonderful subjects for garden statues. Beautiful Indian Peafowl have strolled through the big gardens of Victorian estates, Roman villas, and royal grounds for hundreds of years. The wild birds also compete with classic, stunning statues of peacocks like the Staverden Castle Peacock on an Urn Garden Statue. This beautiful sculpture pays homage to the white peafowl that grace the lawns of the Staverden Castle in the Netherlands. Pair it with the detailed, colorful Palace Peacock Garden Statue.

Other colorful bird sculptures come in the form of toucans and macaws. Touco the Tropical Toucan Sculpture on Ring Perch is a fun, exotic addition to any yard or place of business. This unique bird statue can also be displayed inside the home during the winter months and pairs well with the Polly in Paradise Parrot Sculpture on Ring perch

Some Favorite Gargoyle Garden Statues

Silas the Sentry Gargoyle SculptureWe all have our favorite statues and gargoyles are no exception. Some sculptures of those ancient, intimidating beasts just stand out in terms of popularity, classic appearance, and impressive features. The following are a few of our best-selling, favorite gargoyles:

  • Silas the Sentry Gargoyle Sculpture: Gargoyles are tasked with guarding sacred places and they accomplish this with an intimidating appearance. With sharp claws, bat wings, and a big, toothy maw, Silas is obviously well equipped for the job. However, the aspect of Silas that helps him stand out from many other gargoyles is his accusing, defensive glare. That determined look makes him a major conversation piece at parties, and will put any unwelcome guest on the spot.

 

  • Talysus the Terrible Gargoyle Sculpture: This muscled, powerful gargoyle has a monkey-like appearance that makes it look that much more intimidating. The sharp, clawed wings, crouching posture, and evil grin give Talysus plenty of personality. Not to mention, he is also perched on a ball-topped plinth.

 

  • The Spitting Gargoyle of Notre Dame Statue: This wonderful item is a direct casting of one of the most famous gargoyles in the world. The famed spitting gargoyle lurks on the ancient ramparts of the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, France where it is one of the most memorable gargoyles on the structure. Our direct cast with a faux stone finish is as real as one can get without putting the original in the garden.

The Classic Elegance of a Garden Angel Statue

Angel of PatienceGarden fairies are exquisite, animal garden statues showcase natural beauty, but angel statues probably win the prize when it comes to elegance. Sculptures of these classic, immortal beings have acted as inspiration for more than a thousand years and continue to add a distinct, elegant touch to modern-day gardens. Angel statues still find a place in many a backyard because of their classic appeal, a big part of that stemming from their elegant appearance. Angelic beings wear long, creased robes, stand tall and proud, have long flowing locks, and demonstrate power with big, feathered wings.

Since they are meant to embody something that lacks faults and can do no evil, angels are also shown with beautiful faces and a calm, tranquil demeanor. That classic, elegant blend of power, beauty, and peace is wonderfully shown by the Angel of Patience Sculpture. This dramatic angel lends a beautiful touch to any yard by merit of fine details, robes and face with soft features, and a life-like, patient gaze.

The Extended Grace Angel Statue lends an elegant look to the garden with long, beautiful wings and an artistic pose. This unique, elegant statue also works very well when used as a table centerpiece at important events, or as beautiful interior decor. The Resting Grace Sitting Angel Sculpture makes for an elegant complement to this and other angel statues.

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.

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.
