Pair of Chinese Shanxi Province Stone Architectural Foo Dog Brackets

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.
