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.

“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.”
