  • The pair of marble Foo Dogs are beautifu! In the west they are referred to as Foo Dogs but they are not actually dogs at all but Chinese guardian lions are known as Shishi. They are iconic images of pre-modern China and have traditionally stood outside imperial palaces and the wealthy. They are believed to have powerful protective benefits. They are always displayed as a pair with a male and female lion. The male is depicted with a globe underneath his large paw and the female has a smaller lion on his back under her paw. This is a manifestation of yin and yang, the female representing yin and the male yang. According to feng shui, correct placement of the lions is important to ensure their beneficial effect. When looking out of a building through the entrance to be guarded, looking in the same direction as the lions, the male is placed on the left and the female on the right. When looking at the entrance from outside the building, facing the lions, the male lion is on the right, and the female is on the left.
