Foo dog statues, with their striking appearance, have become a favourite of decorators in the West — but their history spans thousands of years, tracing back to ancient China.
Foo dogs are actually lions & are meant to be placed in pairs. They are symbolic, protective statues, and are designed in pairs — one is female, the other is male. The female represents yin and symbolically protects the people dwelling inside the home, while the male statue, representing Yang, protects the structure itself.
Versions of the foo dog have been used in homes in China as symbolically protective decor for hundreds of years. Whether flanking the front door, perched on the mantel, or given pride of place on a special shelf, these unique creatures have been guarding and adorning homes for ages. Why not add a pair to yours?
