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.

Small Bench – Gone But Not Yet Forgotten

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. Cast stone material is much more durable and weather resistant choice.

Young Mother With Child Statue By Rodin

Young Mother With Child Statue By Rodin

This touching sculpture of a nude mother seated on a rock being gently nuzzled by her young child is a beautiful and eternal statement about motherhood. She calmly reflects on the spiritual connection between herself and her son or daughter.The Young Mother composition can also be distinguished in relief on the side panel of the Gates of Hell, a bronze portal meant for the Musee des Arts Decoratifs which was never finished. A bronze copy was offered by the artist to be auctioned as a contribution towards the costs of the monument in honor of Claude Lorrain, a 17th century-painter whom Rodin greatly admired.

Rodin is a world renown sculptor. He created some of the most famous pieces known in the art of sculpting. He was very talented at conveying feeling in his compositions by emphasizing gesture. Also, his rough surface texture with deep hollows added strong shadows and naturalism to the human form. Rodin’s goal, as he put it, was to render inner feelings through muscular movement. He achieved this aim by joining his profound knowledge of anatomy and movement with special attention to the body’s surfaces, saying, The sculptor must learn to reproduce the surface, which means all that vibrates on the surface, soul, love, passion, life…Sculpture is thus the art of hollows and mounds, not of smoothness, or even polished planes.This is the perfect, meaningful gift for any mother or grandmother. 

3) Garden Love Sculpture 29″ High

Love LoversAhhh Valentines day. What is better than to celebrate a day of love? I know the cynics out there have marked yesterday a Hallmark Holiday. However, Valentine and the associated meaning of romantic love evolved with Chaucer’s poem “Parlement of Foules” in the high Middle Ages, way before the dawn of greeting card companies. The root of Valentines day goes much deeper than giving and receiving cards and other goodies. It is a day celebrating deep love and unbridled passion. In fact I think sculpture captures the love and passion Valentines Day celebrates, perfectly. Below you will find our favorite, most passionate sculptures.

Apollo and Daphne Statue by Gian Lorenzo Bernini

Apollo and Daphne Statue by Gian Lorenzo Bernini

1.) Apollo & Daphne By Gian Lorenzo Bernini Sculpture

Daphne was mountain nymph, with whom Apollo falls in love, having mocked the flimsy darts of Eros compared with his own skill at archery. Eros fires one arrow at him, making him fall passionately in love with Daphne, and another at her which renders her impervious to the god’s persuasion. She flees from him, begging the gods to protect her from his advances, and they turn her into a laurel tree. The myth of Apollo and Daphne is beautiful and captured perfectly by  Gian Lorenzo Bernini’s sculpture.

Cupid and Psyche by Antonio Canova

Cupid and Psyche by Antonio Canova

2.) Cupid and Psyche Bonded Marble Statue by Canova

Canova’s Cupid and Psyche sculpture helped revive classical sculpture in Italy. This depiction of Eros reviving Psyche, who was put to sleep forever by inhaling a magic perfume, is as much an allusion to the legend of Psyche, the immortal soul of Platonic myth, as it is a hymn to love. This statue been called any of these three names: Cupid and Psyche , Eros and Psyche or Love and Psyche. This grand-scale sculpture is imported from Italy and is made of a bonded marble and mounted to a wood base.

Eternal Spring Statue By Rodin

3.)   Eternal Springtime Statue By Rodin

Auguste Rodin’s sculpture Eternal Springtime is a wonderful example of a neo-classical piece of sculptural art. Rodin, is a French artist, created the piece in the late 1800’s and was roughly twenty six inches high. The sculpture replica of the Eternal Springtime is comprised of two lovers passionately intertwined in each other arms, wrapped in an everlasting embrace. Similar in earlier Classical Greek sculpture, the two lovers are shown in this quality museum statue that shows their passion for each other, thus forming a dynamic composition. The god-like male figure dominates the composition as he forcibly kisses the woman passionately. The woman, in turn, submits to his kiss and succumbs to her innermost desires. The movement of the sculpture suggests that the artist wants to place emphasis on the physical aspect between the two lovers. This is truly a passionate sculpture and will be a great gift or collector piece for your gallery.

I hope these pieces filled you with passion. We are proud to carry many other passionate sculptures within our gallery. Head on over to our website to view our fine gallery of sculptures, fountains and garden accessories.

Eternity Cross

One of our most popular items of late has been the Eternity Cross Garden Statue. A statue symbolizing eternal love, life and faith in Christ; it is easy to understand the appeal. The unique sculpture embodies peace and tranquility, making it a perfect garden or sanctuary piece.

Eternity Cross on Pedestal

Statue.com offers two versions of the Eternity cross. One is 38.5 inches high and the other is on a pedestal measuring 64.5 inches high. If height is not enough to give you a picture of it’s size, the cross weighs 68 pounds and the pedestal weighs 102 pounds. Their hefty weight is due to their composition of cast stone. We recommend cementing the cross to the pedestal for extra security for this reason.

Both are from the Massarellie line, makers of fine stone garden accents.  As do most Massarellie sculptures, the Eternity Crosses come in an array of finishes. The crosses pictured are fished in Old Stone #21.

Massarelli Finishes

My family’s weekend schedule is booked through June and July. My husband and I affectionately call this time of year “Wedding Season.” Let’s be honest here, we generally are not overly creative with our gifts. If the present is for my husband’s buddy, he insists on buying a gift card from a ‘man store’ (think: Best Buy, Home Depot, Low’s etc) because according to him “the Bride receives a million gifts at the bridal shower.” <insert sigh here> Okay. I suppose I am not much better, usually I search for left over registry items and call it a day.

Which begs the question: Aren’t gifts suppose to come from our hearts? Even my cat, Ginny puts more thought into her occasional faux mouse presents she leaves at the foot of our bed.  After thumbing through the Statue.com website, I derived inspiration on two fronts. The first one ended up being this blog. The second is a list of thoughtful gifts from Statue.com for a special  Bride and Groom.

1. Celtic Tree Engraved Plaque

Celtic Tree Engraved Plaque

The symbolism of the tree and the ability to personalize this plaque with the newly wed’s family name makes this a great gift.

2. Grow Old With Me Sundial Brass

Grow Old With Me

On the sundial is a quote from Robert Browning’s beautiful poem “Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be.” This polished brass sundial has a knot work design and a beautiful Irish centerpiece, which symbolizes everlasting love.

3. Kiss by Gustav Klimt Art Glass Panel on Wood Display Base

Gustav Klimt Kiss Glass Framed Replica

The powerful bond between man and woman is eloquently illustrated by the renowned 20th-century artist, in this stunning sculpture rendition of The Kiss by Gustav Klimt.

4. Wedding Rings Statue By Peter Lipman-Wulf

Wedding Rings Statue By Peter Lipman-Wulf

Sculpted by an American Contemporary artist Peter Lipman-Wulf. His wife came up with the name of this sculpture “Wedding Rings.” At the time of their wedding they could not afford to give each other wedding rings. The statue’s popularity took off from there. This statue represents there is more to marriage then the traditional physical wedding ring.

5. Embrace a Lovers Sculpture

Embrace A Lovers Sculputre

This sculpture captures the precise moment when there is no turning back from lovers passion. Named Embrace, this amazing sculpture features magnetic draw the eye across every precisely rendered contemporary curve in this gallery-quality, art grade plaster work set apart by a hand finish of Ash. Truly celebrates love’s longing.

Hope you enjoyed the list! ~ Kristen
