FOO DOG LIONS

We are quite fond of our dramatic and mystical vintage and antique Foo Dog Lions, the sacred Chinese guardian lions of ancient times. These majestic creatures were known to have benefic protective powers and traditionally graced or guarded temples, tombs, important buildings, and homes of the wealthy. The name of Buddha in Chinese is Fo or Fu. These dogs of Fu, or, Foo dogs, were Buddha's companions and were legendary providers of prosperity, good fortune and protection.

Vintage foo dogs are found as single statues but are often created in pairs. They can be sitting or standing. A true pair features both the male and female. The male lion has its paw on a sphere which represents the world or the home. The female has a playful cub underfoot, representing the cycle of life or the home's inhabitants. Traditionally, the male guards the structure and the female protects those dwelling inside. Their faces have a fierce look about them with glaring eyes and fangs that show in their open mouth. This threatening appearance is believed to guard against evil spirits.

Vintage Asian foo dogs always have a striking appearance with their legendary mystique and timeless design. They make a strong statement and add style to any facade, entrance, porch, room or garden setting. Enjoy perusing our collection of fine vintage foo dog guardian lions!
