Currently Obsessed : Large Animal Statues…

large animal statues and figurines as home decor

I have an area in my new office that is desperately in need of a vintage animal statue at least 24″ tall. And since I decided that the other day, I’ve been OBSESSIVELY searching for the perfect fit. Now, if I were say, looking for a bear or eagle wood carved sculpture, I could literally drive five minutes down the road and own one. Unfortunate as it may be, a woodland creature is not the animal I had in mind, and so my hunt continues.

I found an absolute favorite on Ebay last week {No.1 below} listed at $325 with a $110 shipping and just couldn’t justify the cost {even though I’ll spend more on a single bag or pair of shoes, which I cannot justify either}. I was secretly hoping this fabulous spotted cat wouldn’t garner any bids and then I’d contact the seller with a lower price and have it for myself. But alas, it sold, with one single bidder. And in my obsessive search, I may have spent nearly as much on smaller, lower-priced animal figurines I’m hoping I won’t regret upon arrival.

Though they are hard to come by, if you’re willing to fork over the cash, there are plenty of other amazingly gorgeous animal statues around, {it’s particularly the vintage Italian style I’m looking for, though a hilarious option is always welcome}. In fact, I’m almost tempted to buy a cheapy plaster or resin version and just paint it myself! And somehow, in the middle of all of this, I am reminded of my childhood, when I would have traded my left arm to have a certain life-sized carousel horse in my bedroom.
