These 19th century Chinese Fu dog protectors, each carved by hand from a single block of limestone, once guarded the entrance to a grand provincial Chinese home. Bells hanging from collars around their necks indicate that the pair has been domesticated, and they stand at attention, offering protection from evil spirits. With elaborately carved manes and emotive expressions, these Fu dogs have been imbued with a remarkable sense of life and energy.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
