Large Life Size Dog Statues

Large life size dog statues can have a variety of purposes. Dogs have been humankind’s companions since prehistory. They are companions, hunters, protectors, and friends. As humans have moved into cities, it has become harder to accommodate the canines in our lives and we are sometimes obliged to forgo four-footed companionship. An image cannot replace the real thing, but life-size statues can be an expression of the hope for real companion one day in the future. They can be a saddened owner’s memorial to a friend who has past into the green fields of forever. For dog lovers or dog statue collectors, a unique statue can simply be something beautiful to have as a house or lawn decoration even if the statues are mingled with real dogs happily playing around the representations.

Dog statues come in a variety of sizes and, of course, in all sorts of breeds and degrees of realism. Some dog statues are faithfully rendered in the same size as the breed of canine, while others are stylized. The statues can range from realistic poses to exaggerations or even cartoon-like representations. Some of the very best realistic statues include soft glass eyes and carefully sculptured coats, making statues that are so lifelike that you want to pet them. Others are true works of art that remind one of just how faithfully dogs have guarded everything from livestock to temples throughout the history of humankind.

Materials for the statues are equally varied. Polyresin is a popular material for realistic statues. It is easy to shape the resin into lifelike replicas, and it bonds well with the glass eyes that enhance realism. But cast stone or marble are equally popular, especially for outdoor use. Finally, there is cast bronze or even wrought iron creations that are true works of art that hold up well to wind and weather for outdoor displays.

No matter what your purpose, to decorate, to commemorate or just to enjoy, there is a dog statue out there that is perfect for your home or lawn.
