Authentic Chinese Guardian Lions "Fu Dogs" made of high-quality cast stone - stone figure for garden decoration or in the living area
Chinese guardian lions, stone lions, also referred to as "Fu dogs" or "Shi", are traditional Chinese sculptures that are often placed in pairs in front of building entrances to symbolize protection and prosperity. They are placed in temples, palaces, and other important buildings in China and other parts of East Asia.
The male guardian lion is usually depicted with a ball or globe under his paw, while the female guardian lion has a cub under her paw. The male and female lion often represent yin and yang and other dualistic concepts in Chinese culture.
The guardian lions are not only decorative elements, but are also considered protective symbols that are said to ward off evil spirits and energy. Their presence is said to bring good luck and prosperity and protect the building and its residents.
