Extremely fine and rare large 15" vintage Kutani moriage porcelain foo dog paired with the mythical and powerful sea dragon. We've never seen one like this and he is awesome!

Wow! This is an amazing, powerful, colorful and striking white Kutani porcelain piece which dates from the mid-20th century and is in mint condition. Please see the many detail photos to appreciate this fine and rare signed artwork. The white guardian lion foo dog has a highly animated blue face and strong pose, showing muscular countenance as he embraces the divine sea dragon which represents ultimate abundance, prosperity and good fortune. There is a large variety of fine sculptural details and imaginative rendering throughout this hard to find vintage Kutani foo dog. Design features include the fierce head with menacing eyes and reticulated mouth, fangs and red tongue; the green sculpted dragon in swirling water also with a reticulated mouth and red tongue; the flowing mane and tail; and the abundant all-over colorful Kutani moriage decoration. There are generous and luxurious hand painted 24k gold highlights which liberally adorn the head, face, mane, tail, and dragon detailing - including two gold horns!

This is a very large and substantial vintage ceramic white Kutani foo dog shishi guardian lion, measuring 15 inches tall by 13 inches wide and weighing over 16 pounds!! It is signed with a very good impressed mark on the bottom and is in mint condition with no chips, cracks or restorations. It is simply amazing!

This rare combination of the fierce foo dog lion and divine sea dragon represents heavenly and terrestrial power, both protection and good fortune. The dragon brings the essence of life in the form of its celestial breath, known commonly as sheng chi. Take this very special and magnificent statue home!
