Add a hint of the Orient with this wonderful Stone Temple Lion. It is often referred to as 'foo dogs' and are traditionally seen guarding the entrances of temples. In today's modern world, you'll still see them but mostly in restaurants and various businesses.

These foo dogs are seen as guardians and keeping unwanted intruders at bay. Our foo dogs come from Beijing and are individually carved by artists using stone. They exude beautiful details including a nice weight. These can work as bookends or as door stops. Or these guys can simply hang out on a table in your living room.

The price indicated is for a single lion.
