These reclining lion dogs, also known as shizi, were hand-carved from limestone in northern China over two centuries ago. These mythical guardians symbolize strength and power and were once mounted as finials on a stone bridge or gate to prevent malicious spirits from crossing. Today they can be appreciated as time-honored sculptures and used as bookends, doorstops, or garden ornaments.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
