This early 19th-century mythical shizi sculpture once protected a Qing-dynasty home in northern China. Shizi, also known as fu lion dogs, were believed to be powerful protectors against malignant spirits, and the artisan who hand-carved this shizi imbued it with a remarkable sense of life and energy. Carved from solid limestone, the sculpture has developed rich character over time, yet retains its original exquisite detail. Today, we love the shizi as a modern protector indoors or out.

“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.”
