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.

“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.”
