Garden Statues add beauty to your yard

Garden statues can range from the most common garden gnome to a full marble depiction of the nativity. They add depth, beauty and sometimes humor to your front lawn or flower beds. If they are cleverly chosen and arranged they can make a wonderland out of the simplest garden. There are temporary statues for every occasion, especially Christmas. Santa and his reindeer or Frosty the Snowman are temporary garden statues that are popular and will appear in your garden every year. You could also have a deer munching your hedge for a while then a mountain lion emerging from the bushes.

 

Garden statues come in cast stone/concrete, aged stone, Italian marble, fiber stone, and fiberglass for the ones that last for years. They also come in plaster and plastic but may not last long, depending on the climate. They can be religious, animals, cartoon like characters, gargoyles, playing children, even geometric shaped statues. You can even get copies and smaller replicas of famous statues like Winged Victory or Venus de Milo or works by Michelangelo, Donatello, Auguste Rodin, and Canova.

 

Religious garden statues are primarily Catholic saints but there are beautiful Buddha and Hindu statues for nooks and grottos in your garden or yard. They give a sense of peace and serenity. Some are life sized and polished granite and are very impressive. Saint statues in gardens are reminders of the faith and blessings and are seen to protect the home. It is said that a statue of St. Joseph, patron saint of working men and real estate agents, near a for sale sign will guarantee a quick sale. It is also popular to have a small shrine with a statue of Mary in the garden. Nativity scenes are very popular in Catholic and non Catholic gardens at Christmas time.

 

Animal garden statues bring the wild alive, especially when you are far from it. A hedgehog under your roses or a rabbit running across your lawn, add a touch of the great outdoors right in the middle of suburbia. Some of the animal statues look like live animals and will take your breath away. Mythical statues bring mystery and humor with dragons, gargoyles, mermaids, fairies and unicorns enjoying your garden while you enjoy them. They inspire children and add cache to your profile because they are out of the ordinary. If you have a hobby or have traveled widely, you may like a statue from another culture such as ancient Egypt or China. Native American statues symbolize the five elements, emphasizing the plight of our natural resources. If this is your favorite cause, they send an important message from you to the world.

 

For the real connoisseur of garden statues there is a huge collection of hand crafted statues in the ancient style with themes from myth. Available in Italy, Vicenza stone statues including figures, masks, fountains, bird baths and vases for the garden bring ancient Rome to you and your neighborhood. They are given an antiquated or water repellant finish so they will look genuine and last for years.
