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.

“I am particularly fond of PAGODA RED as we have known the family for so long. Betsy is a professional in every way and her intelligent taste comes from a long line of family knowledge in the arts. She and her team are the very best to work with and we find treasures with every visit!”
