Pair of Chinese Shanxi Province Stone Foo Dogs

Pair of Chinese Shanxi Province Stone Foo Dogs

Ref: AR4020

Hand carved, this pair of antique, Chinese foo dogs, or lions, was originally architectural building brackets. It is unusual to find so small a pair and these depict especially fierce creatures; sure to ward off evil spirits. In the modern home, they would be very effective used as garden or patio ornaments, but might also be nice flanking a hearth.
