Gardens were once seen as places to meditate and pray. Nowadays they serve to relax people as well as spend quality time with family and friends. Not only do these gardens boast flowers and greenery, but they may also include statues that symbolize a sacred object. Decorating gardens with these objects has become an increasingly popular trend, providing a subtle but significant layer of spirituality to the atmosphere. When selecting a religious garden statue, the material of their construction should be taken into consideration. Popular options include stone, bronze and resin – all durable materials that require minimal upkeep while creating long-lasting sculptures that will look fantastic as they age.
