Known for their incredible detail, the ancient stone lions (or shishi) are symbolic protective statues signifying prosperity, success and guardianship. Seen across all East Asian countries, the ancient foo dogs are depicted in art from architecture. Our antique replicas are cast exclusively for Basil Street in quality designer resin to capture their wild manes and fierce grimaces with a faux bronze finish. Place the Shishi dogs in an uncluttered area facing away from each other so that their warrior ways may be used to your best advantage. Wonderful gift idea! Each 6"Wx4½"Dx6½"H. 2 lbs.
