Guardian Lions or Fu Dogs in Chinese folklore where Buddha's protectors and are commonly found at the entrance of Chinese establishments for protection. In the Late Ming (1368-1644 AD) or Early Ching (1644-1911 AD) Dynasties, the Foo Dogs guarded the entrance to the Imperial Palace which are still evident today. The Foo Dogs are hand made and constructed of thick walled brass that is sand casted, hand worked and chemically oxidized to bring out the natural green coloured patina, characteristic of oxidized brass. The Fu Dogs are always place on both sides of an entrance therefore they are sold in pairs.
