FAQs about angel garden statues
What are angel garden sculptures made from?
There are different materials that these garden sculptures are made from but most often we see angel statues made of stone. Typically, a durable fiber stone is used, making it perfect for indoor or outdoor spaces. They are made with a pre-patina, meaning they will not be easily destroyed in the elements nor from the hot sun shining on them, and with just the most minimal of basic care, your angels will remain looking good for a long time to come.
Statuary is a common element used for outdoor statues. This is a cast made from molds using cement, plaster, or resin. It is specifically made to withstand the elements and last for a long time.
Sometimes angel statues are also made from marble or bronze. These will typically cost more than stone or resin statues. Whichever type you choose, they will be a great addition to your outside decoration. You can use them standalone, next to a bird feeder or flower pot, or even next to other types of statues.
Is it good to keep angel statues at home?
Have you asked yourself if it’s good to keep angel statues at home? No one else can tell you the right answer to that question but I say if they make you feel good, then yes, it is a good thing to have them.
You can use angel statues to enhance your living space both indoors and out and to brighten the mood in your garden with an angel statue of your choice. Statues made of stone bring earthy elements to the garden and a peaceful cherub can bring a peaceful feel to the space.
Some people use them as a memorial marker in their gardens or in memory of a loved one or a lost pet. Still, others use them as a sign of their faith or a promise of Heaven. And some people just like them because they look pretty or cute.
Whatever your reasons, they are yours alone. If you love it, then it’s the right garden statuary for you.
Angel statues vs. garden fairy
What if you are trying to decide between a garden fairy and an angel statue? A fairy statue is another very popular choice of garden sculpture. Some people like both – angels and fairies. For others, fairies don’t seem to go with their religious beliefs. And for some people, it’s just a personal preference. There are even a few whimsical sculpture designs that include both angels and fairies in the same piece.
Again, the answer to this is simple: it’s a personal preference. There’s nothing to say you cannot have some of both in your garden. If you lean more strongly toward one over the other, then go with that one. This is your garden, and it should be a space you feel proud of and also that you feel happy to spend time in. Decorate it however it suits you the best.
