statues are the perfect décor for protecting
a home or garden. Crowned “King of the Jungle”
because of their strength, power and fearlessness,
Lions have ruled the plains of Africa and maintained
balance throughout the animal kingdom for centuries.
Of course, for all their popularity, the male lion
is actually more of a figure head. In fact, reinforcing
the old saying that a male is “only as strong
as the female behind him”, lionesses perform
most of the hunting within the lion’s pride.
Still, with its regal mane and muscular body, the
lion continues to signify strength and power more
than any other animal.
Lion garden statues represent the largest segment
of this collection. Many people choose to flank
a driveway or an entry way to a garden with these
classical pieces. As such Statue.com carries numerous
sizes, styles, and materials to meet everyone’s
need. There are also unique lion gargoyle pieces,
lion bookends, and a large selection of wall plaques.
Tiger statues are another popular item in the
Lion and Wildcats gallery. Evolving from a species
called the miacids that were living around 60
millions years ago with the dinosaurs, today’s
tiger is a direct descendent of the cat family.
There are several common misconceptions that tigers
are related to the Saber-Toothed Tiger and that
tigers come from Africa. In fact, tigers originally
resided in Eastern Asia.
Today only about 6,000 wild tigers live in Asia,
including India, Southeastern Russia, China, and
Indochina. Typically, wild tigers gorge themselves
on fresh kills, and can eat as much as 40 pounds
of meat at one time. Perhaps, because of this,
the tiger species is actually larger than the
lion. And unlike many of its relatives in the
cat family, tigers enjoy the water and spend plenty
of time cooling themselves in small pools.
