Often referred to as â€œFoo Dogsâ€ or â€œFu Dogsâ€ in western culture, these handsome stone sentinels are iconic gatekeepers seen throughout Asia. Traditional symbols of protection, they are made from durable materials like bronze or stone and are presented in pairs to flank either side of a threshold. While their decoration style varies by culture and religion, handsomely carved and highly detailed pairs were universally indicative of power initially reserved for temples, royal palaces, and the wealthiest of families. This specific pair is depicted standing on all fours, having curled manes and tails, each with teeth baredâ€”mouths slightly open showing their tonguesâ€”draped in a decorative banner and adorned with bells below their necks. The price is for the pair.
