This seated sculpture was carved over 400 years ago during the Ming dynasty from a single block of limestone. It was discovered in the Shanxi region of China and is believed to represent a seated lion, fu dog or Shizi, a protector, well worn by time. The history of the proud and serene stone sculpture is evident in the character and patina of the stone.

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“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.”
