Product Description:

AW0293 A pair of lovely Foo Dog / Shi Shi Lion from my familys collection(circa 1970-80s), each casted entirely from brass, will never rust.

Damage free, gorgeous for home or even office paperweight. Size: Base: 8 x 5 cm / 3.1 x 2 inches Height: 6 cm / 2.4 inches Weight: 0.5 kg / 1.1 lb After packing: 0.8 kg / 1.7 lb Wikipedia: Since the introduction of the lion symbolism from Indian culture especially through Buddhist symbolism, statues of guardian lions have traditionally stood in front of Chinese Imperial palaces, Imperial tombs, government offices, temples, and the homes of government officials and the wealthy, from the Han dynasty (206 BC %u2013 AD 220), and were believed to have powerful mythic protective benefits.

They are also used in other artistic contexts, for example on door-knockers, and in pottery.

Pairs of guardian lion statues are still common decorative and symbolic elements at the entrances to restaurants, hotels, supermarkets and other structures, with one sitting on each side of the entrance, in China and in other places around the world where the Chinese people have immigrated and settled, especially in local Chinatowns. The lions are usually depicted in pairs.

When used as statuary the pair would consist of a male leaning his paw upon an embroidered ball (in imperial contexts, representing supremacy over the world ) and a female restraining a playful cub that is on its back (representing nurture ). I will ship via Registered Mail, 14 working days worldwide.

Insured.
