Chinese Shanxi Province Pottery Foo Dog

Ref: P2363
This rare unusual, antique Chinese foo lion is depicted in reclining position. It displays a fierce, open mouth and an interesting treatment of its mane, formed with mogul-stud-like curls. This early piece is unglazed and has an incense receptacle on the back. This ceramic clay architectural roof tile now makes an interesting sculptural accessory.
