This pair of limestone Fu Lions was carved over 250 years ago and possibly once flanked the entrance to a Qing Dynasty home in China’s Shanxi province. These sculptural lion dogs or Shizi are symbols of power and grandeur and were believed to offer protection from evil spirits. The artisan who carved the statues imbued the stone with a remarkable sense of life and energy.

“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.”
