While they are known in the West as Chinese Foo Dogs, in the East, these traditional statues are known as Imperial Guard Lions. They are usually depicted as seen here - one female lion with a playful cub (representing nature), and one male lion with an embroidered ball (representing supremacy over the world). It is believed that they protect the buildings they guard from harmful people that might be a threat. They are often seen outside palaces, tombs, government offices, and homes of the wealthy. Guardian lion pairs have been popular in China since the 6th century AD and remain so today.

Female: 10"w x 7.5"d x 14"h; Male: 7.5"w x 10.5"d x 13.5"h
