Gorgeous pair of fine porcelain Fu Dogs. This pair was found in a market in Los Angeles and the detail on each is lovely. They are an off white colour with a semi-gloss finish. Perfect at the entrance to a room or on shelves as bookends.
The concept, which originated and became popular in Chinese Buddhism features a pair of highly stylised lions, often one male with a ball and one female with a cub. The pair were thought to protect the building from harmful spiritual influences and harmful people that might be a threat.
Today, there are Fu Dog feng shui cures to suit any taste and any home. The colour, size, and material can influence where and how to use a Fu Dog, whether it be guarding a front door to adding a sense of calm and good luck to your home's interior.
Both dogs are in good condition with just a couple of tiny chips. One on the cub's bow and the other on the male's ribbon coming off the ball he has his foot on. Very minor and not really noticeable.
We know you will find these two dogs the perfect addition to your space.
