These mid-19th century Chinese Fu dog protectors, each carved by hand from a single block of limestone, once guarded the entrance to a provincial Chinese residence. They feature mirror depictions of relaxed, reclining lion dogs with flowing manes and open friendly mouths. They sit atop fabric-draped pedestals supported by the Taoist gods of Heaven, Earth and Water. Dark areas on the lions' heads reveal places where they have been frequently touched.

“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.”
