Flowers are a wonderful choice for Valentines if it is for a lady or girl. In fact Valentines Flowers are excellent for initial presentation and impact however their presence is unfortunately temporary. To remedy this annual problem you can combine Valentines Flowers with a second gift of wildlife animal figurines. This will create a permanence not offered by flowers and also creates year round home décor enjoyment.

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 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.

The love of the outdoors and wildlife is an almost universally agreed upon every day avocation. Capturing the outdoors and wildlife in sculpture are wildlife animal figurines from small to life size. Animal Figurines specialists like Animal World have been involved in the wildlife figurine business for over 26 years and represent some of the most well respected names in the animal figurine statue business including Sandicast and John Perry. Both of these animal figurines dominate the style of statue they produce. John Perry produces a very basic but at the same time very elegant figurine combining the futuristic look of white pellucida animal statue set almost invisibly upon a unique one of a kind burled wood base. This futuristic look combined with natural wood emanates a warm yet modern feel for home décor. In addition, for anyone wishing to create relaxed looking beach theme décor the John Perry Figurine Statue collection is the perfect solution. In summary, realism is not the goal of the John Perry Animal Figurines. The goal of John Perry was to create beautiful, simple, modern comfortable home décor that features the gorgeous line of the animal rather than the detail.

In contrast the Sandicast line of animal figurines main claim to fame rests in their realism. From the animal figurine’s pose, to it’s muscle tone, detaled coat, and especially it’s eyes each Sandicast Figurine Statue will make you do a double take. In fact if you place the Sandicast statue at eye level and view the animal figurine eye to eye they appear so real you almost expect them to breathe. Sculpted originally out of clay by founder Sandra Brue, production of the Sandicast Animal Figurines today includes cast stone hand painted reproductions out of molds of the original pieces. Unheralded as one of the greatest sculptors of the modern era Sandra Brue’s line of Sandicast Animal Figurines graces the shelves of thousands of homes today especially in breed specific dog figurine statues. Our love affair with animal figurines goes back thousands of years. Originally carved most likely out of rock or wood, animal figurine statues today are made of materials that reflect the times in which we now live. What all animal figurine have in common is our need to not only capture that beauty in statues but also to place them in our homes where they can be admired and respected.
