Garden Trellis Fairy the Metal Tempest Sculpture

We are in love with the newest addition to our Garden Statue category, the Garden Trellis Fairy Metal Tempest Sculpture. Whether the mythical, almost 4-foot-tall, leafy winged fairy sprite is placed atop a flowerbed or over climbing vines, the possibilities with this sculpture are endless and sure to add splendor to any garden.

Our garden fairy is in-stock and usually ships within 3 days. The casting medium is metal and the finish is as shown in the picture. It is truly a magical, attention grabbing sculpture.

Another Statue.com garden statue favorite is Our Lady Of The Lourdes Life Size Cement Garden Statue. The Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes in southern France is the most visited pilgrimage site in the world, principally because of the apparent healing properties of the waters of the spring that appeared during the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary to a poor, fourteen-year-old girl, Bernadette Soubiroux.

Veterans Day Sale

Loss is an unfortunate part of life. Today, All Souls Day serves as a day to memorialize those who have passed. Although, those who have experienced loss understand that one day dedicated to the memory of a loved one is not necessary as those memories are carried in hearts for a lifetime.

Having a physical place to reflect on those memories daily can bring great about much comfort. Our garden benches can be personalized and make a comforting gift for a grieving heart. All of our benches are stone as opposed to concrete garden benches.

Did you know there are only 10 Fridays left until Christmas? Yikes! Where is the time going!? Around Statue.com we start to think about the holiday season a little earlier. Quite a few of our sculptures are made to order. This means it takes a little longer for our items to ship but for good reason: great quality.

Eternity Cross Garden Statue 38.5

Eternity Cross Garden Statue 38.5″ High

For example the Eternity Cross Garden Statue, a Statue.com favorite, takes 3-4 weeks to ship. If you ordered this statue today, you would receive it sometime mid November. While considering gifts this upcoming season we encourage you to consider the shipping time to receive your sculpture or fountain.

Seems like just a couple of weeks ago we were writing about the dog days of summer. Time goes by so fast, tomorrow marks the first day of Autumn. Of course with Fall comes Halloween. In our book, it is never too early to start thinking about Halloween decorations. With Autumn knocking on our door, that means October is coming upon us quickly. What better way to celebrate the changing of seasons than to share with you our favorite Halloween inspired, spooky pieces.

Dragon Skull Large Statue

Okay, honestly this sculpture is not limited to just Halloween. In fact it would look pretty cool on a bookshelf. However, we love the idea of spreading some fake cobwebs over the top and surrounding the sculpture with candles to set the Halloween mood.

A Gothic Sentinel Gargoyle Garden Sculpture

Gargoyles were said to ward of evil spirits and were commonly found outside of Gothic churches. When the haunts are out, rest assured this guy will do more than ward off evil spirits. Yet another sculpture that would look great in a garden or home year around.

For years people and even scientists have tried to solve have the Giant Easter Island of the Moai Sculptures arrived at their destination. These statues had to be move 11 miles away from a quarry where they where carved, and did not use wheels, cranes or large animals.

Scientist has had May ideas and they had thought the islanders use ropes, log roller and wooden sledges.  Recently two archaeologist came up with a new theory that the Moai where made to move upright using only rope to make the statues walk or should I say walk?  As seen in the video.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=YpNuh-J5IgE

University of Hawaii and California State University Long Beach have worked closely with these archaeologist Sergio Rapu, who’s part of the South Pacific island’s population of indigenous Rapanui, to develop their idea.  D-shaped bases could have allowed workers to roll and rock the moai side to side and walk it 11 Miles. Pretty cool and love the video of the theory in action. So do you think the Easter Island statues walked? Or do you have your own theory?

As one passes a Lawn Jockey in someones yard, welcoming us up to the front door, what are our thoughts? Do we simply think what a lovely statue? or does one wonder what is its history? Why a jockey? what did he represent? why is he black or white?

One of the stories surrounding the Lawn Jockey is that on a icy cold December night  in 1776  George Washington wanted to cross the Delaware to launch a surprise attack on the British in Trenton. An African-American little young boy wanted to fight the Redcoats too but Washington deemed him too young. He ordered him to stay and guard the horses making sure to keep the lantern burning so that the troops would know where to return. The story goes that many hours later when the troops returned, so devoted to Washington was this young bo, that he had not moved from his position and he had frozen on the spot, with the lantern frozen in his hand. George Washington was so moved by his devotion that he had a statue created to commemorate the “Faithful Groomsman” and he stands in Grave’s honor on the General’s estate in Mount Vernon.

During the Civil War allot of these statues could be found on the Southern Plantations and it became known as a guiding star for the Underground Railroad. A green ribbon attached to the statues arm indicated that the house was safe and red meant danger, that the owners were NOT sympathetic to their cause.

People, not aware of the history of the Lawn Jockey, and not wanting to cause offense, started representing the statue as a white boy. So now you can find him representing both races.

Check out our Rainman Series of statuary to add a little touch of whimsy to your garden decor. They are well made here in the United States of cast concrete and available in five different finishes.
