Greek Outdoor Statues
If you are looking for strong focal point for your garden, Greek outdoor statues are a beautiful and classic choice, that will stand the test of time.
Many Greek statues were created to honor gods and goddesses.
These statues are not only crafted in realistic detail, and beautiful to behold, they also bring with them the stories of these adventurous deities.
The twelve most important gods in Greek mythology were called the Olympians. They ruled the Universe from atop Mount Olympus, where they all resided. Like any big extended family there was a lot of drama and infighting!
When the Romans conquered Greece in 146 BC much of the Greek culture remained and influenced the Romans, who adopted many of their gods, but gave them new names.
Zeus, the king of Olympus, was the most powerful of these gods, and was married to the Hera, the queen, who was also his sister. The other Olympians were Poseidon, Demeter, Athena, Apollo, Artemis, Ares, Aphrodite, Hephaestus, Hermes, and either Hestia or Dionysus.
Greek God Statues
Zeus the king of Olympus was the god of the sky and thunder. He was associated with justice and well being, punishing the wicked and rewarding all that did good.
The Romans also worshipped Zeus, but referred to him as Jupiter.
This classic Euorpean statue of Jupiter, with a draped robe and handsome features stands over five feet tall. It is cast in quality designer resin and finished in faux stone to replicate the antique original.

Poseidon, brother of Zeus, was the god of the sea and the protector of all aquatic animals. Sailors relied upon him for safe passage. He was also a violent and ill-tempered god and would create storms and earthquakes if angered.
Poseidon’s symbol and weapon is a trident – a three-pronged spear. With it he could make the earth shake!
In this Italian-inspired, 18th-century replica, a muscular Poseideon holds his famed trident and stands astride his symbolic triple dolphin. This museum-quality designer resin sculpture has an antique stone finish to lend majesty, grandeur and classical elegance throughout the seasons.

Greek Goddesses Statues
Aphrodite, one of the Olympians, was physically stunning and considered the most beautiful of all goddesses. She ruled over love, desire and beauty. She was loved by both gods and mortal men.
Aphrodite is associated with the planet Venus, and is also referred to by the Romans as Venus.
The face and form of this gorgeous goddess have captured the hearts and imaginations of artists for centuries. Many have tried to capture her image and essence in their sculptures. Replicas of a few of these classics, including the 2nd century BC Venus de Milo, are below. A more contemporary version shows Venus rising from the hands of her maker.
Demeter was one of Zeus’s three sisters. She was the goddess of agriculture, harvest and fertility.
This gorgeous statue of the fertility goddess Demeter will add classic beauty to any home or garden. Sitting on a bench, one hand on her hair, her voluptous feminine form is gracefully displayed. Cast in quality designer resin, this statue has an antique stone finish.

Hebe was the youngest daughter of Zeus and Hera. As the goddess of eternal youth she had the ability to restore youth to mortals. The Greeks believed that achieving youth could be accomplished by a blessing from her. Hebe was also responsible for ensuring the eternal youth of the other gods.
One of her early roles (until she married Heracles) was the cup-bearer for the gods and goddesses of Mount Olympus, serving their nectar and ambrosia.
The resin statues below were designed by Danish artist Bertel Thorvaldsen and capture her role as a cup-bearer, as well as her eternal youth and beauty. The fountain version includes a water basin and a working pump.
Harmonia was the goddess of harmony and concord.
