This limestone Shizi Dog (or Fu-Lion) was probably once one of a pair and may have flanked the entrance of a Qing Dynasty home in Northern China. The dogs were believed to be powerful protectors. This 200-year-old statue is a unique interpretation on the traditional Shizi Dog—the squat body and expressive features show the artist’s personal approach to an ancient symbol.

“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.”
