Foo Dog Statues
Chinese foo dogs, Fu dogs, or Chinese guardian lions, are good luck guardian lion statues. Mythical creatures, they are thought to ward of bad influences and to keep the souls in their charge safe. These guardian lions are the protectors of sacred buildings and are seen as emblems of valor and energy, and are frequently placed at the gates of temples, houses and sometimes guarding tombs. They are usually used in male-female pairs where the male lion is represented playing with a ball which may represent the sun, the egg symbol of the dual aspects of nature, or merely a precious stone. A unique and thoughtful gift, these statues make for a great pair of book ends on a book case, credenza, or mantle.
