Three Things a Big Foot Garden Statue Can Do for the Backyard

Bigfoot, the Bashful Yeti Tree SculptureBigfoot, or Sasquatch, is one of the most searched for enigmas said to haunt the wilds of North America. If you happened to document one of these creatures in the backyard, your place would become immediately famous, as well as being constantly visited by Bigfoot hunters. Although images of Sasquatch have yet to be captured in anyone' backyard, you would come close with one of our statues of the legendary creature. In addition to attracting a Bigfoot hunter or two, here are three other things that a Bigfoot statue can do for the backyard:

  • Unique entertainment for garden guests: How many people can say that they have gone to a party attended by Bigfoot? Put Bigfoot, the Bashful Yeti Tree Sculpture on display and your guests will have a ball.

 

  • Help with marketing: A Bigfoot sculpture will get people talking and make it hard to forget your place. This could help make your home one of the more popular places on the block, and for a business, doubles as invaluable marketing.

 

  • Attract an actual Sasquatch to the yard: Well, maybe not but you never know, especially if you put the Giant, Life-Size Yeti Statue on display.

Unique Outdoor Elephant Statues for the Garden

Good Fortune Elephant Sculptural Garden ChairThe elephant sculpture is an animal yard statue that tends to stand out from sculptures of deer, bears, and other wildlife. It became a popular animal garden sculpture during Victorian days, especially because elephants were believed to be associated with good luck when they lifted their trunks high above their heads. Elephant statues still make a fine, classic statement and add a distinguished touch to gardens that host them. In addition to beautiful elephant sculptures for the inside of the home, we also have unique outdoor elephant sculptures.

The Good Fortune Elephant Sculptural Garden Chair acts as a unique, lucky place to sit down and relax at the end of a long day. Garden guests will also enjoy sitting in this one of a kind patio chair, especially when placed right next to the inviting waters of a pool.

Speaking of places to swim, we also have an elephant statue that goes for a swim in your lawn. The In for a Swim Elephant Lawn Sculpture is a detailed, realistic elephant statue that looks as if it is swimming right through the garden. Like the actual elephants that take to water in various parts of their range, our aquatic pachyderm moves through the "water" with a raised trunk and happy eyes.

How to Choose Asian Garden Statues for Your Backyard

Far East Garden Fighter Ninja GnomeResin garden statues are wonderful, essential decor for many situations but it can be a challenge to pick out the right statue. We usually start by asking ourselves a few key questions like "Which type of statues will look best in the garden?", "How many statues should I buy?", and "Which decorating theme should I follow?". In addition, if you haven't done much shopping for garden statues, you might not even know where to look.

Whether just getting started with garden decor or looking for another addition to your personal collection of heirloom quality items, the best place to shop is Design Toscano. Take a brief look through our extensive collection and it won't take long to see that we have the best selection of unique, quality decor for the best prices. If you were thinking of putting Asian-themed decor in the backyard, browsing our Asian garden statue collection is the first easy step in finding the best Asian decorations for the garden. Here are two other questions to consider when looking for the best Asian statue:

  • Is this the first Asian statue for the garden?: If you already have Asian-themed garden decor but lack a dragon, the Asian Dragon of the Great Wall could be a suitable addition. Or, if this will be the first Asian-themed decor in your backyard, the Enlightened Buddha Sculpture will make an impression. 

 

  • How do you use your garden?: For example, if the backyard is dedicated to fun activities and parties, a Far East Garden Fighter Ninja Gnome could fit the bill. However, if the backyard is a quiet retreat or place for meditation, you would be better off with something along the lines of a solid bronze Tranquil Buddha Statue.

Delightful Garden Fairies for Sale

Fiona the Flower FairyThe fairy statue became popular garden statuary during the Victorian era. Before then, a lot of people didn't need to put statues of fairies in the backyard because they believed that the "little people" were real and frequented the garden on moonlit nights. On occasion, some people also left offerings in the garden to appease the fairies and gnomes that supposedly lived there.

In modern times, although we don't really believe that fairies actually live in the garden (at least most of us), we still like to pay homage to the legend with high quality fairy decor. By nature, most garden fairies are lovely, delightful creatures. Those attributes are shown by the majority of the fairies in our collection, including our beautiful Fiona, the Flower Fairy Sculpture. This life-like fairy sculpture has a peaceful smile and elegant features that lend a happy touch to any backyard.

Another, equally delightful fairy sculpture is Fannie, the Fairy Sitting Statue. Fannie's lovely little smile and half-closed eyes fit in perfectly with a lazy, warm summer garden. Don't forget to buy and save on the Woodland Fairy Garden House Statue to give Fannie, Fiona, and your other garden fairy statues a place to live.   

Take 20% off any of the garden fairy statues in our collection as well as any of our high quality decor from today until July 7th as part of our July 4th sale.

Cheerful Greenmen Sculptures

Bacchus Wall SculptureThe greenman sculpture is an ancient form of art that probably has its roots in pre-Christian druidic belief systems. Rather like wall decor for trees, these interesting statues literally give a face to a favorite Oak, Maple, Ash, or other backyard tree. Although some look intimidating or even a bit frightening, there are greenman sculptures with happier, cheerful faces. These fun wall decor items are a perfect addition for a summer garden, and add just the right character to summer garden soirees.

Few wall decor items make a better fit for summer parties than the Bacchus, God of Wine Greenman Wall Sculpture. With wild, unkempt curls and a jovial, grape-ringed face, Bacchus shows that this is one deity who is always ready to party.

Another of the more cheerful greenman sculptures in our collection is actually a greenwoman. Daphne, the Greenwoman Wall Sculpture has a happy, easy-going face with bright eyes and smooth, flawless skin. Her face is also ringed with leaves of Laurel that blow in the breeze, and where tiny fairy creatures dwell.

These two statues are indeed cheerful but the title of "Happiest Greenman" goes to our Laughing Greenman Birdhouse. With a mischievous wink and roaring laughter, this fun greenman decor also acts as a backyard birdhouse.

Cute Garden Statues of Climbing Bears

Mischievious Bear Cubs SculptureEvery garden looks better with an animal yard statue or two. Whether putting a tiger statue on display or sculptures of unicorns and other fantasy-genre animals in the yard, animal decor always adds character to the backyard. Baby animals in particular lend a warm, adorable touch to backyard decor. Bear cubs are among the cutest of baby animals and we recognize that adorable look with realistic, heart warming climbing bear cub sculptures.

The Mischievous Bear Cubs Sculpture doesn't need to show anything more than realistic, life-like details to depict bear cubs at their cutest. These furry little guys are naturals at getting into trouble and play with each other every chance they get.

Bear cubs also love to climb trees at every opportunity and no animal sculpture shows this better than our Black Bear Cubs Up a Tree Statue. The trio of baby bears in this statue not only climb the tree but are also just as eager to climb on top of each other to get a better look of their surroundings. Put a smile on the faces of your garden guests by putting this fun animal statue near the entrance to the backyard. Complement it with Yonva the Climbing Bear Sculpture.

A Great Deal on a Gargoyle Statue

Talysus the Terrible Gargoyle StatueThose of us who love to spend time in the garden also love to find great deals on garden statuary. Of course, a "great deal" doesn't mean average or cheap statues that cost less because they look bad or are going to fall apart after a few months. No, "great deals on garden statues" translates to high quality, unique garden sculptures that cost much less than expected. Those would also be statues from our collection, including several excellent gargoyle figurines.

Talysus the Terrible Gargoyle Statue is one such sculpture. This laughing gargoyle is on sale and blends a menacing Gothic grin and more modern muscled appearance for fantastic, entertaining results. A sphere-topped plinth for a perch completes the fantasy-flavored look of this unique statue.

Another fine deal on gargoyle statues can be found with the Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyle Sculptures Set. These fun little gargoyles might not look as frightening as classic-themed gargoyles similar to the stone beasts that sit on the ramparts of old castles but they make up for it with a hilarious, adorable appearance. These cute little creatures will look right at home in a flowerbed, make excellent, unique gifts, and will put a smile on the face of any garden guest. Not to mention, they are also available for a great, low price.
