One of the longest lasting of Christmas Gift giving traditions involves selection of animal figurine statues for animal and pet lovers on one’s gift list. Today three of the most popular of animal figurine brands include Sandicast, John Perry and Conversation Concepts made available online from animal figurine statue specialist Anwo.com Animal World. The reason animal figurine statues have remained so popular involves everyone’s fascination with wild animals and the inherent desire to bring that feeling of the wild outdoors inside through interesting animal theme home decor. This need is in turn satisfied with talented artists who desire to create a realistic animal works of art out of clay, stone, glass, wood or custom man made materials like Pellucida. With each material used a different animal figurine statue effect or style is achieved. Combine this with each artist’s idea of how to capture a wild animal in art and the possibilities are literally endless. Some people like to collect a certain animal theme such as North American, Safari, Jungle, Ocean, Birds or Arctic. Others like to collect just a specific kind of animal. Examples of these specific collections may include wolf figurine statues, tiger figurine statues, dolphin figurine statues or bald eagle figurine statues. Others may have a collection of a famous animal from one artist they love like Sandra Brue Sandicast or John Perry Figurine Statues. Two famous animal figurine statue collections which were very popular, but are now unfortunately retired include The Herd Elephant figurine statue collection and the Charming Tails Mouse Figurine Statue Collection. Both the Herd and the Charming Tails figurine statues were made of cast stone and hand painted. The Sandicast figurine statues still produced are also made of a cast stone resin compound and are hand detail painted. It is always fascinating how we have always been interested in animal figurines. The reason people have a love affair with animal figurine statues most likely evolves with the obvious differences between mankind and animals. After all, animals unlike humans have adapted entirely to a life outdoors. Mankind on the other hand requires shelter and clothes to survive.
