Hand-carved from a single block of limestone, this stone fu dog sits at attention as a watchful guardian of the home. He exudes a remarkable sense of life and energy - crouched on all fours with curly hair and a lively expression. A bell hanging around his neck indicates that he's been domesticated. Also known as shizi, fu dog lions such as this were traditionally placed beside the entrance or threshold of a grand home or sacred space. Set by the front door or tucked within the garden, this fu dog guardian protects the home from malevolent spirits and misfortune.
