Catholic Statues

Catholic statues are a major aspect of designing a church.  Because most Catholic churches are built in honor of specific saints or biblical figures, you will often find figures depicting different characters from the bible on church grounds.   Since is a major figurehead she always makes an appearance.  Of course, Jesus, will too.  These are recognizable characteristics of the Catholic Church particularly, and are always very easy to recognize, even for those who are not familiar with the traditions and rituals of the Catholic denomination.

There are many ways that manufacturers make Catholic statues.  Resin statues are perhaps the most popular, but you can also find them made from any material that is easily manipulated.  Porcelain is also common because of its pure, flawless appearance.  It is very delicate so you need to take extreme care when moving and setting up a statue made of porcelain.  It is also a good idea to keep it protected from the elements by placing it indoors or in case of some kind.  You might also find statues made of plaster too.  Sometimes more robust materials, like woods or metal are also used, though not usually in a church capacity.

Official church purposes are not the only reason why someone might be interested in Catholic statues.  You can use them in a domestic capacity too.  Many people like to place them in their lawn or garden to bless the grounds around their home.  Popular patron saints are Saint Francis who is the patron saint of animals and Saint Fiacre, the patron saint of gardening.   Saint Michael is the patron saint of the warrior, and many military serviceman and police officers turn to him for protection and strength, so the family home that houses someone of these professions might choose to keep him near the entryway.  Of course, Mary and Jesus, again, are always common at the home of strong Catholics.

Catholic statues make great gifts for people who are deeply involved with their church.  Although you could stick with something a little more practical, like a cross or crucifix pendant, a statue makes a statement that you respect their personal beliefs and want them to be proud of who they are.  Of course, this can be a costly gift, too, and if you can afford it, will say a great deal about your relationship.  However, there are many versions both small and large, made from a variety of materials so you can also find one that will fit your budget too.

If you need Catholic statues for gifts or your own home, head to the internet to find specialty retailers with easy to use websites.  This is the type of particular item that moves very well online because manufacturers can distribute directly to customers and the lack of showroom reduces overhead, making the prices more attractive.  Convenient shopping from your own home with twenty-four hour access sweetens the pot.  Several shipping options really round out the deal, so investigate thoroughly to see who has the best selection with the deals you need for total customer satisfaction.
