Chinese Shanxi Province Stone Foo Dog

Ref: AR5206

This early foo dog (or lion) displays the outdoor wear of its 18th century origin. It was hand carved as a symbol to ward off evil spirits at the entry to a house or garden. This one has an unusually fierce looking, toothy mouth and appears quite whimsical.

18th century
