The Scottish Terrier is one of America’s most beloved dogs! It’s one of the only breed of dogs to reside in the white house more than three times. They are nicknamed ‘Diehard’ because of their feisty determination. Much like our Piper Scottish Terrier statue, it will adorn your garden or interior decor year after year with feisty tenacity.

Bull Dog Mascot - Spike Canine Bulldog

Another Statue.com favorite but a little more ferocious… cute… but ferocious is our Bull Dog Mascot Statue. Bull Dogs were once bred to be fierce protectors but now they are a docile family dog. This statue embraces their heritage and would make an awesome addition to any school or business too!

Some of my favorite Statue.com pieces do not fall into our traditional category of sculptures and fountains. In fact, I love our Henri cast stone pieces. They have the look and feel of wood but are made of durable cast stone. Which translates to less maintenance and better longevity of the piece.

In addition to longevity and less maintenance, cast stone pieces are very heavy. The process of making cast stone involves a special blend of portland cement and light weight aggregates.  This makes them perfect for outdoor use.

Each of our Cast Stone pieces is hand worked after casting to create a unique and beautiful finish. This hand work gives these pieces the look and feel of wood. A very visually interesting touch!  Furthermore, the finish of most Henri pieces can be customized to suit your decor. Whether it’s dark or light the finish will be just right.

Garden Patron Saints

Spring has sprung… I am trying very hard to ignore the fact that it is still so cold outside. But alas we have crossed the threshold of the Spring equinox. I don’t know about you, but I am itching to get into my garden. We purchased a new home late last summer. This will be my first gardening season in this house.

Following our theme of a blog post about a Saint each week of March, I thought I would share some Patron Saints that might just bring good blessings to your garden… whether it be veggie or flower.

Many lives have been touched by her intercession. Prior to her death, she vowed, to “Spend my heaven doing good on earth. I will let fall a shower of roses .” For this she is the Patron Saint of Florists.  Her roses continue to fall everywhere in the world to those who pray for her intercession.

Saint Fiacre Garden Sculpture is made of cast stone and is wonderful for the home or garden. Saint Fiacre was born in Ireland and raised in a monastery. Much of mankind learning and knowledge was brought to the monasteries and left in the care and protection of the monks. Travelers brought seeds and plant material, as well as cultural enlightenment from as far away as Rome and the Holy Land. Saint. Fiacres days at the monastery taught him a deep love of silence, the joys of planting and harvesting crops and an appreciation of nature. Drawn to the religious life and the desire to serve God in solitude, Fiacre decided to establish a hermitage for worship. Monks in those days were regarded as physicians of the body as well as the soul. Soon people were flocking to Fiacre for prayers, food and healing. He fed the hungry and healed the sick with herbs from his garden and prayed for all who came there. From his work be became Patron Saint of vegetable Garden and men who like to garden.  Our spiritual garden figurine of Saint Fiacre is cast in cast stone to add a meditative and miraculous presence to your own Eden. Another quality Statue.com religious garden statue!

Saint Patrick

Saint Patrick

I am imperfect in many things, nevertheless I want my brethren and kinsfolk to know my nature so that they may be able to perceive my soul’s desire.” ~Saint Patrick 

Saint Patrick Faux Granite Statue 24

Saint Patrick Faux Granite Statue 24″ inches high

Saint Patrick was born in Scotland around year 387. The area for which Saint Patrick grew up in was ruled by the Roman military. As a teenager he was captured by a raiding party and forced into slavery. He was taken to Ireland to tend to sheep as a Shepard. He learned the language and traditions of his captors. Ireland at this time was comprised of Druids and Pagans.

It is also during this time Saint Patrick turned to God and prayer. His captivity lasted until his early twenties, where he had a dream about escaping and returning to his family. He acted out on this dream and eventually reunited with his family.

Back in Scotland, Saint Patrick studied to become a priest. He would later return to Ireland to build churches and reform the people of Ireland. He used the famous shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity. The shamrock has been associated with him and Ireland since this time.

We hope you enjoyed  this tidbit of Saint Patrick. Stay tuned for next week’s Saint installment of the blog. In the meantime, head on over to our website to view our fine gallery of sculptures, fountains and garden accessories.
