Foo translates from one of two Chinese words for "Buddha" or "prosperity".
The female sits to the left with her paw on a cub to represent the cycle of life and serves to protect the occupants and promote abundance. They are actually Imperial Guardian Lions that typically sit at the entrance of a prominent and affluent home.
This beautiful stone statue can be your imperial guardian. There is a lovely ancient aura surrounding the foo dog. Ideal for indoor and outdoor display.
