These terrifically ferocious Small Temple Dogs are boldly and meticulously crafted and their fierce qualities emphasized by their blood red colouring.
Used to guard palaces, temples and other important buildings, you may not be surprised to learn that in Chinese mythology they are really lions with their paws clawing the globe as if it was a football.
In the modern world, they can be discovered offering protection to unlikely venues such as restaurants and offices but that shouldn't devalue the significance of these highly decorated and quite frightening ornaments.
By mixing crushed marble with resin a very hardwearing material is produced and this is perfect to use for statuary such as these Temple Dogs who might be a stunning addition to the entrance to your home or garden.
