Animal Garden Statues from Down Under

Tasmanian Devil StatueAustralia is a place of wonder and enchantment. The Great Barrier Reef harbors thousands of colorful fish, anemones, and other sea creatures while the isolation experienced by that southern continent resulted in a wide variety of unique and incredible animals. Kangaroos hop across open grasslands dotted with Eucalyptus groves, and Bottlebrush trees, and bizarre duck-billed Platypus swim in quiet creeks. It's a place that every world traveler hopes to visit but even if you can't make it to Down Under this vacation, you can still bring the flavor of that beautiful land to your yard with certain animal garden sculptures.

One of the most mysterious of all Australian animals is a Canine-like creature known as the Thylacine. Although it might look like a combination of a tiger and a dog, this predator is actually a marsupial and thus more closely related to kangaroos! Sadly, the Thylacine is believed to have gone extinct in Tasmania in the first half of the twentieth century but occasional unverified sightings provide some hope that this secretive creature may still roam wild areas in Tasmania and parts of the Australian mainland. Historically, it coexisted with the infamous Tasmanian Devil, a small, tough, marsupial that uses its strong jaws to crack open the bones of carrion.

Animal Garden Sculptures that Show the Stars of the Animal World

Power and Grace Sumatran Tiger SculptureOur planet plays host to an amazing number of species and creatures great and small occur just about everywhere. Life can be found from the coldest, darkest depths of the oceans to the steamy jungles of the Amazon but we don't pay much attention to the vast majority of those life forms. This is because most are microscopic, insects, or small sea creatures that are all too easy to ignore.  Ask almost anyone if they know what a tiger or panda is, though, and they will give an accurate description. It's the big and bold animals that are the stars of the animal world and these also happen to be the ones that look best when displayed in garden statue form.

Some animals dazzle by merit of their ferocious appearance while others show striking patterns and bright colors. The Tiger combines both of these aspects better than any other animal and thus makes an excellent subject for a breathtaking animal yard statue. The Power and Grace Sumatran Tiger Sculpture shows the power and incredible beauty of this big cat with accurate, exquisite details. Pair it with such beautiful statues as the King of the Beasts Lion Sculpture and Tian Shan the Asian Panda Sculpture and your garden will show some of the most eye-catching, incredible animal stars of our world.

Where to Put a Tiger Sculpture on Display

The Grand-Scale Wildlife Animal Collection: Bengal Tiger StatueSome animals have such a striking, impressive appearance that they look like living works of art. One such charismatic animal is the Tiger. This large cat used to roam the forests and grasslands of Asia from Iran in the west to China in the east. Unfortunately, this top predator has disappeared from large areas of its former range and is currently endangered. Although it still survives in protected areas and reserves, it's very difficult to see even in those places.

Whether you take a trip to India to try and see a Tiger or not, you can pay homage to the wild beauty of this rare feline with Tiger statues. In keeping with the secretive nature of this big cat, put the Grand Scale Bengal Tiger statue near protective cover such as a hedge or a tree. Its nearly eight foot in length and beautiful details make this one of the most realistic tiger statues you will ever see!

Large Buddha Statue or Small Buddha Statue?

Giant Buddha Monument-Sized Garden SculptureSome of the largest statues in the world are sculptures of the Buddha. Carved out of mountainsides, shaped from natural rock formations, or painstakingly sculpted from different stones that are then put together, huge Buddha statues never fail to leave most people in awe. This was one of the main reasons for making them so large in the first place but it's not the only size shown by the Buddha statue. Smaller statues are actually the norm and this is demonstrated by many Buddhist temples in Asia. Although the largest statue is the centerpiece of the temple, there is typically a number of other, smaller sculptures in various shrines here and there on the temple grounds. The different sizes of the statues make it easier to be reminded of the Buddha and the importance of striving for humility.

The size of the Buddha statue for your garden depends on how you want to display it. If it's going to be the most important of all your resin garden statues, then a large Buddha sculpture is probably the best one to get because such an item tends to take center stage. If you would rather have the Buddha sculpture act as a simple highlight to an Asian-themed garden that also features a large tiger sculpture and other decor, then you probably need medium or small Buddha statues.

Highlight the Asian Garden with Buddha Statues and Animal Garden Sculptures

A statue of the Buddha is frequently found in Asian-themed gardens. This reflects the tendency for Buddhist Tian Shan, the Asian Panda Sculpturetemples and shrines to combine the beauty of nature with the meditative, peaceful demeanor of sculptures of the Buddha. In keeping with the peaceful tenets of Buddhism, many temples also act as sanctuaries for wildlife by protecting natural habitat and feeding the animals that frequent the surrounding bamboo groves and forests. For this reason, in places like Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam, they can be great places to see monkeys, exotic birds, and other Asian wildlife.

Although you won't find actual Asian animals like tigers and cranes in your Asian-themed garden, you can come close with our realistic, detailed sculptures. Complete the look of your Asian-themed garden by displaying both Buddha statues and animal garden statues such as Tian Shan, the Panda sculpture. Just like a real Giant Panda, this adorable statue has bright, inquisitive eyes, and is keeping busy by chewing on a bamboo stem.

Tigers are another animal that have been the subject of paintings and Asian folklore for centuries. Highlight your Asian-themed garden with a tiger sculpture that showcases the grace and power of this beautiful predator.

Get 20% off the regular price of these animal statues and everything on the Design Toscano site through Sunday, November 25th as part of our Black Friday Weekend sale!

Asian Garden Sculptures for Every Backyard

Meditating Shy Yogi of Bali SculptureAsian garden statues are an essential part of every Asian-themed garden. Statues of pagodas and pandas add a beautiful, elegant touch to a backyard where Bonsai and rock gardens are put on display. However, as appropriate as such sculptures are for an Asian-themed backyard, some also work well with backyards where garden fairies hide in the flowerbeds. Take the Pagoda Lantern Sculptures as an example. Unobtrusive, elegant, and soothing, these pieces look right at home in any garden.

The Meditating Shy Yogi of Bali is another sculpture that fits in with just about any theme. As he hides his face in his hands and sits with crossed legs, this Yogi has a rounded shape that lends itself to an expression of peace and tranquility.

Tigers are animal garden statues perfect for most Asian-themed gardens but they also look just as dramatic and beautiful in other backyards. The Up a Tree Tiger Cub Statue is an accurate display of the excitement and near-panic shown by kittens (tigers included) when they climb just a bit too high.

The Power and Grace Sumatran Tiger and Grand Scale Bengal Tiger are also available for people looking for a less playful (and more dramatic) version of this beautiful, big cat.

Some Animal Garden Sculptures Are Almost Too Realistic!

Shadowed Predator Black Panther StatueThe animal yard statue is standard backyard decor in every garden. Whether hosting a pantheon of Greek-themed sculptures or putting pagodas and pandas on display, animal statues add a lovely, natural touch. Just like the animals that make up Earth's wild kingdom, they come in all shapes and sizes and can remind us of Mother Nature's deadly beauty, her charm, or the cute side of life. Although animal sculptures can also be cast in noble bronze or represented in cold stone, they are at their most realistic when crafted with resin. The pliable nature of this sculpting medium allows for extremely detailed depictions of tigers, giraffes, and other exciting wildlife.

In fact, some of those resin animal statues look so realistic that neighbors may think that you are harboring an exotic menagerie or are really into taxidermy. For example, take Tank, the Armadillo Garden Statue. This sculpture of the small, naturally armored creature is as about as realistic as any statue can get without turning into the real thing. From the minute pattern on the ears to the faded lower parts of the carapace, no detail, no matter how minute, was left undone.

What Resin Garden Statues can do for a Business

Garden statuary, despite its name, isn't just for that private green space behind the house. The beauty Egyptian Revival Winged Great Sphinx Statueof some stone angels, depictions of animals, and other works of art make them just as suitable inside a home as they are beneath the dappled shade of a backyard Oak. Nor do they need to stay within the confines of a home. Buy the right sort of statues for a business and they will probably pay for themselves in a month.

The secret about detailed sculptures of dinosaurs, Bigfoot, or beautiful replicas of more classical statues is that they help with marketing. Whether the business happens to be a restaurant, hotel, or hardware store, they get people's attention and bring them into the store. By adding character to any establishment, they make every visit to the business a memorable one and thus help with branding. 

Flank the front doors of a hotel or restaurant with two Egyptian Revival Winged Great Sphinx Statues and customers will know they are walking into someplace special.

Put furniture like the The Salentino Crescent Garden Bench into the lobby along with a beautiful tiger sculpture and guests will know that they chose the right place to stay.

Beautify your business and improve its image with fantastic sculptures for outside from Design Toscano.

The Realism of Stealthy Animal Yard Statues

Prowling Spotted Jaguar StatueSculptures of animals are a natural fit for every garden. Even if you put statues of exotic animals on display, they can still seem right at home in any backyard. Put a tiger sculpture on display in an Asian-themed garden and it will blend in perfectly with your Buddha statues and pagodas. Show a mini-menagerie of African animals in the backyard and they look as if they belong out there with the rose bushes and tulips.

Unless there's a breakout at the local zoo,  you aren't going to see a jaguar in your backyard but even so, the Prowling Spotted Jaguar sculpture seems right at home as it sneaks through the grass. Realism in a sculpture doesn't just come from fine sculpted details and accurate colors. It also stems from the overall depiction of the statue and feelings that it generates. In the case of stealthy statues like the prowling jaguar, you couldn't be more realistic than showing a powerful feline in the process of stalking its prey. The same can be said for the beautiful, elegant Grande Black Panther Statue. These and other animal garden statues exclusive to Design Toscano are so realistic that it might take a week or two for your dogs to stop barking at them!
