Pair of Carved Marble Fu-Dog on Pedestal

Often referred to as “Foo Dogs” or “Fu Dogs” in western culture, these handsome stone sentinels are iconic gatekeepers seen throughout Asia. Traditional symbols of protection, they are made from durable materials like bronze, stone, or marble and are presented in pairs to flank either side of a threshold. While their decoration style varies by culture and religion, handsomely carved and highly detailed pairs were universally indicative of power initially reserved for temples, royal palaces and the wealthiest of families.

The price is for the pair.
