Chinese guardian lions, known colloquially in the west as Foo Dogs. Snarling and ferocious, they often appear in front of temples, offices, homes, and gardens. Said to offer protection through mythical powers, guardian lions originated in China’s Han Dynasty (206 BC-220AD). A pair of lions traditionally features one female, who nurtures a cub, and a male, who is seated with a ball.
