Garden statuary can take the form of classic, inspirational sculptures such as a grand scale stone garden angel, a beautiful cascading fountain, gargoyles, or other breathtaking sculptures. However, the statues in the garden don't have to be big statues that stop you in your tracks for admiration or contemplation. They can also be incredibly cute statues that put a smile on your face and lend adorable charm to the garden. One such statue is the tiger cub animal yard statue and at Design Toscano, we have the cutest selection of tiger cub statues you will ever see.
The Sitting Bengal Tiger Cub Statue is a high quality, gorgeous tiger statue in our grand-scale wildlife animal collection. The fierce and lovely eyes of this baby Tiger have the same heart melting effect as a real, live Tiger cub. This statue also has the same big paws, ears, and black stripes on orange coat as the majestic big cat. It's just too cute! Pair this beautiful animal statue with the Lying Down Bengal Tiger Cub Statue to give it some company.
The Up a Tree Tiger Cub Statues are another pair of adorable baby animal sculptures. One lounges and makes its best attempt at a roar while the other is still trying to get to the top of the tree.

One of the beautiful things about garden statuary is the huge variety of forms they take and themes they can follow. While one can always stick to decorating the backyard with garden gnomes and garden fairies, nowadays, we can also put such statues on display as gargoyles, beautiful angels, and highly detailed animals. If the garden could use a change in decor, and lacks an animal yard statue, you might want to consider putting something like Zairen the Zebra Sculpture on display. This striking, realistic sculpture adds a beautiful, exotic look to any backyard and looks even better when complimented with a fun animal statue like "Pongo, the Hanging Baby Orangutan" Statue.
If you already have enough animal statues in the yard, you might want to go for a statue or two that is a bit more classic in nature. A stone garden angel such as the Angel of Patience Sculpture and the cute In God's Grace Angel Statue are just two of many fine angel statues in our collection.
Or, perhaps the time has come to put a sculptural fountain in the backyard. The Medici Lion Four-Tier Fountain is a majestic fountain fit for the most elegant of gardens while the Quenching a Big Thirst Sculptural Fountain entertains with its big, thirsty Saint Bernard.

One of the first main reasons for putting sculptures on display was for religious purposes. People sculpted figures that were representations of what they took to be sacred and those statues were cared for and shown in temples, grottos, and other sacred sites. In modern times, many of us continue this tradition by putting a statue of a stone garden angel or two in the backyard, or putting Christian-themed sculptures or a statue of a large Buddha on display. No matter which type of religious statue is used, we hope to showcase sculptures that inspire peace, goodwill, spirituality, and encourage us to be better people. For these reasons, the best religious statues tend to be ones that evoke emotions with a combination of drama and beauty.
The lovely Basking in God's Glory Little Girl Statue showcases those factors with sincere, simple beauty. With arms spread wide and a look of joy on her face, the young girl in this sculpture shows the type of happiness that many of us strive to feel. The little birds on her arms add a cute final touch to this wonderful sculpture.
The Ascension: Grande Scale Christ Sculpture is another dramatic statue that showcases Jesus Christ rising from the cross before ascending to heaven. Buy this statue for inspiration in a beautiful, Christian-themed garden.

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.

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.

Dragons have enchanted, frightened, and intrigued people for thousands of years. While no one really knows how legends of dragons originated, that doesn't stop us from continuing to love stories of massive, fire-breathing beasts to this day. We help keep those stories alive in part, by using exquisite dragon decor in the garden. A dragon skull or a statue of a scaled Medieval beast rising out of the ground makes for quite the fantasy-inspired statement but there is also dragon decor for the home interior.
Two of the most enchanting dragon statues for the inside of the home are the Dragon Minions of Darkness. Both of these statues feature classic winged dragons replete with sharp fangs and claws. A further touch of realism is provided with bright, shining hues of emerald green, ruby red, silver, and brilliant gold. In most stories, dragons are not dull, feeble minded monsters but display a cunning mind as sharp as their massive claws, and sport shining natural, brightly colored suits of armor. Artist Liam Manchester has managed to capture just that essence with these fine dragon sculptures and adds another dramatic touch by placing them more than a foot and a half above their stone-shaped mounts. Put these stunning dragon statues on display to enthrall all of your fantasy fan guests.
Enjoy 20% off these fine dragons, Medieval home decor, all of our detailed gargoyle figurines, and everything else on the Design Toscano site when purchased by December 31st.

None of us want to give average, everyday presents to the special people in our lives. Sometimes, we end up doing just that but it's only because we can't find unique, high quality gift items. This year, instead of settling for less than the best when it comes to your holiday gifts, go shopping at the Design Toscano site. You won't find anything that can be described as "average" at our online store because we pride ourselves on only dealing with above average decor and other unique items that in turn, make excellent gifts.
Let's take our stone garden angel collection an an example. Instead of just one or two everyday angels, we have nine pages of exquisite angel statues. There are sweet cherubs like the Balancing a Dream sculpture along with several large classic angels like the Praying Basilica Angel Statue. Speaking of classic statuary, we also have a host of wonderful Greek Garden Statues and beautiful replicas of famous works of art such as the Birth of Venus Statue.
For fine interior decor, browse our extensive collection of objets d'art, Egyptian decorations, and more in the Basil Street Gallery. There's nothing average about items like the Bali Sculptural Wall Frieze, Neoclassical Male Occasional Table, or the Serengeti Soiree Giraffe and Zebra Bookends.

It has often been said that this is the most wonderful time of the year. Although we in the USA have yet to celebrate Thanksgiving, and the official holiday season doesn't start until after Turkey Day, it's already begun for millions of people and many a business. You and your neighbors show that holiday spirit by shopping for gifts and decor whereas stores get into the holiday mode with winter holiday displays, playing Christmas carols and other traditional music, and offering plenty of sales. People who own a business that depends on holiday sales are very aware of why this is the most wonderful time of the year and need to take the right steps to meet their all important fourth quarter goals.
Marketing is key to surpassing the end of the year sales challenge and an important role is played by winter holiday decor. This year, help your business stand out from the crowd by putting unique, eye-catching decor on display. Instead of using the same decorations as other stores, bring in the customers with realistic animal garden statues like the Grand-Scale Black Forest Garden Deer Sculpture. Dress this quality animal statue up as a reindeer and pair it with our fantastic life size Jolly Santa Claus Statue to entertain the holiday crowds and get them talking about your store. We also have a wonderful collection of religious garden statuary and stone garden angels that can also be used for filling your business with holiday cheer (and customers).

Garden statuary encompasses a much wider range of subjects than most people realize. While gnomes and fun welcoming signs continue to be popular additions to the backyard (and there's nothing wrong with using them as decor), nowadays, you can also accent the garden with a highly realistic animal yard statue, decorate the yard with stone garden angels along with a wide variety of religious statues, or add a unique touch to the yard with a fantastic Bigfoot Statue.
To bring a bit of Africa into your yard, put statues like the fantastic Lioness with Cub and the Stalking the Savannah Cheetah Statue on display. Both of these fine animal sculptures capture the essence of wild Africa with beautiful details and characteristic behaviors shown by these felines in the wild. Compliment these striking sculptures with the impressive Mombasa, the Garden Giraffe Sculpture.
Religious statues come in many forms and range from classic Christian statues like the breathtaking Ascension: Grand Scale Christ Sculpture, artistic angel-themed decor such as the Santa Croce Angel Wall Frieze, and beautiful Asian religious statues such as the Great Buddha Garden Sanctuary Sculpture.
As far as unique statuary goes, you won't find a better selection of fantasy-themed and unique resin garden statues anywhere else. In addition to our signature Bigfoot Statue, we also make it possible to decorate your yard with friendly alien decor, a quality Humpty Dumpty Sculpture, and much more.

November 11th marks a solemn and very special holiday for the United States of America. In 1918, on the 11th hour of the 11th month an armistice came into effect that called for an end to fighting during the First World War. The following year, that date became officially recognized as Armistice Day and years later, it eventually became known as Veteran's Day, an official holiday that recognizes the sacrifices and service made by veterans of all military branches. To honor this important day, we are offering a 20% discount on everything featured in the Design Toscano site.
Not sure what to buy? Browse the site and see how much you can save on a fantastic stone garden angel like the Angel of Patience Sculpture or the Angel of Grief Monument Statue. Both of these angel sculptures are resin garden statues of the highest quality and show that distinction with detailed wings, flowing robes, and lifelike features.
This is also a good time to buy and save on animal garden statues for your own backyard or as gifts for special friends. Decorate the backyard with a beautiful White Swan Statue or other realistic wildlife statues such as Simon the Fox.
Buy all of your holiday gifts today and tomorrow from Design Toscano and enjoy 20% off as part of our Veteran's Day Sale.

The garden is meant to be decorated. While you don't have to string lights from the trees (although that can also look nice at the right time of year), the backyard is always going to look better with a bit of decor. Resin garden statues add character and can let you decorate the yard with everything from Greek garden statues to highly detailed animal garden statues and stunning stone garden angels. However, if you would rather stick to a more contemporary touch when it comes to garden decor, you may want to consider using certain Asian garden statues.
While a large Buddha sculpture can add a majestic, timeless touch to the garden, Basho the Sumo Wrestler provides a more modern look. As he squats in classic Sumo fashion Basho gets ready to wrestle any of your garden gnomes and gives the garden a unique east Asian touch. To add depth to your contemporary garden sculptures, pair Basho with a Far East Garden Fighters Sumo Gnome Statue. The Sumo Gnome is also dressed for a wrestling match but looks far too happy and cute to actually do any wrestling. On the other hand, the Far East Garden Fighter Ninja looks more than ready to defend your backyard from squirrels, rabbits, and other intruders. To round out your display of contemporary Asian garden sculptures, you can't go wrong with the beautiful and musical Cascading Bamboo Sculptural Fountain.

Dragons have been immortalized in paintings, sculptures, and folk tales for thousands of years. Although we often associate dragons with European knights, stories of winged, scaled monsters date back much longer than Medieval times. Depictions of dragons have also been found on ancient Sumerian artifacts and even on much earlier rock art. Although the reason why tales of dragons are found in dozens of cultures continues to be a mystery, that doesn't stop fantasy writers from putting them into their own stories nor artists from crafting fantastic dragon statues. They also make a wonderful garden statuary statement, especially when depicted as realistic creatures that perch on top of a roof or crafty magical beasts that scale the garden walls.
Dread the Dangling Dragon Wall Sculpture is a lively winged dragon that is clearly happy to be climbing up the wall. His scaled appearance, toothy grin, and formidable claws make this a classic dragon sculpture suited for the walls, trees, or other perches of home and garden. Pair it with a realistic Stoker's Moors Dragon Skull Statue to add to the Draconian effect.
The Warsin Dragon Statue is another climbing dragon and one with a classic look that fits right in with a Gothic-themed backyard or a garden that hosts a fine display of Greek garden statuary and stone garden angels.

At Design Toscano, we hold a lot of sales. Sometimes, a sale is for garden statuary while other times, it might pertain to animal garden sculptures. However, keep in mind that even when we don't have an official sale going on, hundreds of our high quality decor items are still on sale.

For additional peace and serenity, pair it with the elegant Madonna of Notre Dame Garden Statue.
Stone garden angels are also religious statues and are meant to inspire. The Glory del Cielo promotes inspiration with detailed wings, carefully carved robes, arms folded across the chest, and an innocent peaceful face gazing up at the heavens.
If you would rather go with Asian-themed religious statues, the Monument-Sized Giant Buddha Statue is also on sale.

Gargoyles are an interesting, unique decor item that can look great in any garden. They aren't just limited to places with several Gothic Decor items or gardens that only put gnomes and garden fairies on display. The right gargoyle statue makes an excellent addition to every backyard by merit of its classic nature. As anyone who has toured the great cathedrals of Europe is aware, those stone depictions of leering guardian spirits are a common sight on the ramparts of churches and castles and you can add the same sort of classic Medieval look to your yard with high quality resin gargoyle statues.
From now until Friday, October 18th, you can also buy several of our gargoyles for a bargain because you get an extra 15% off any of the on sale gargoyles in our collection.

The Asian garden statue is meant to remind us of the many beautiful gardens that are found in eastern and southern Asia. In countries like China, Japan, and Thailand, certain types of decor have been an essential part of green space on large estates, public parks, and temple grounds for hundreds of years. Statues of Buddhas are used for religious reasons while sculptures of pagodas and other subjects are displayed for their symmetrical beauty. However, somewhat ironically, you don't have to have an Asian-themed garden to display Asian sculptures. Asian garden statues can look just as impressive as long as they are presented the right way.
For example, if stone garden angels and Greek garden statues are already situated in prominent places in the backyard, you don't want to put a large Buddha statue such as the Jolly Hotei Buddha right next to them. Instead, put the Buddha sculpture in another corner of the garden, perhaps under the tranquil shade of a large tree since such spots reflect the types of places where the Buddha is said to have meditated.
The Asian Dragon of the Great Wall is somewhat more versatile but still looks best when placed in or next to a flowerbed, or even better, when displayed right next a swimming pool or koi pond.
Find these Asian garden sculptures and dozens of other high quality resin garden statues for great prices at Design Toscano.
