Pair of Foo Dog Statues
Foo Dogs are Chinese protection symbols of feng shui
that typically guard the entrance ways to buildings and homes.
Ironically, they don’t actually depict dogs, but rather lions.
They are always presented in pairs and are traditionally
carved from granite, marble, or some other decorative stone.
However, they may also be cast in iron, bronze, ceramic, and even gold leaf.
Due to the high cost of the materials and craftsmanship required to sculpt them,
these statues were usually reserved for only the wealthiest and most prestigious families,
or imperial palaces, tombs and governmental offices.
Consequently, they represented not only sacred protectors against negative energy,
but aristocratic status as well.
Comes as the set shown with one male statue and on female statue.
