Description

There seems to be some confusion over these Temple Dogs as they are also referred to in the western world as Foo Dogs but in reality are actually lions.

Traditionally used in Chinese culture to guard temples and high status buildings, palaces, tombs and the like, they have now become ubiquitous, providing security for many different, and some prosaic, locations.

Used decoratively they are normally seen in pairs, an entrance having one on each side, and portrayed with one paw resting on a globe indicating the temple dog's dominance over the world.

Their fierce protective nature is superbly depicted by these marble ornaments that come, in line with tradition, as a pair, with every scary nuance carefully reproduced from an original piece.

Looking great, but the unloading was hairy!

These are a great addition to the garden, give presence and focus. Only worry was when the delivery driver arrived with a curtain sided vehicle, they were packed as a single stack, one on top of the other producing a tall narrow case. He and I had some scary moments bring them down as there was not only the height from vehicle deck level, but that the road has a 1 in 5 slope. To get them safely off the back we had to unpack them from their case on the vehicle and then handball them down to ground level.
