Why Garden Statues – Why Use Them?
Posted by kaviiks on August 16, 2008
Many of us love garden statues – I am sure, we may love the look of a frog statue holding our key to the front door, better known as a frog key hider or key safe using the conventional way of describing such a piece. Both combine functionality while serving a decorative effect. Or some of us may like the look of two stately lion statues guarding our “den” – and why? What is it about two lion statues that add so much color and regality to a residence or home? And lion statues are not solely confined towards decorating the look of a home..these beautiful animals are actually eminent possibilities for a restaurant, a high flying shopping complex, a courthouse and even a park. Why do we use them? What is their significance?? Their majestic and regal demeanor has caused them to be used over the centuries by ancient European and Asian civilizations and perhaps the power and glory associated by the powerful girth and built of the lion, makes them a formidable presence to contend with.
The array of garden statues are endless and they not only add character and persona to a garden but they also add vibrancy, color and beauty to an otherwise lifeless place. Children statues for instance, add a beautiful imagery to the garden and many of the customers at KAccents.com choose the statues for a reason. For instance, a library may choose reading statues to emphasize the importance of reading or a father may present a sculpture that denotes the love a mother vests onto her child, as a gift to be remembered. Mother and child statues add a unique concept of devotion and love, a beautiful and inspiring gift idea to a loving mother.
We’d like to hear your ideas about using garden statues around the lawn and garden. And of course we will be discussing a lot more on the use of garden statues to the gardening landscape.
