Is this what you need when you buy Hi-Line Gift Ltd Foo Dog-Left Paw on Ball Statue?
Food Dog – Right Paw On Ball. Foo translates from one of two Chinese words for “Buddha” or “prosperity”. They come in pairs to represent the yin and yang of life, the feminine and masculine. The male sits to the right with his paw on a sphere to represent the earth and serves to protect the house and structure. The female sits to the left with her paw on a cub to represent the cycle of life and serves to protect the occupants and promote abundance. They are actually Imperial Guardian Lions that typically sit at the entrance of a prominent and affluent home.
Customer reviewsI love this Foo-Dog
I ordered this statue to put it in the middle of my one meter square garden and I am glad I did. Despite I had read in the description it was 14 inches height, I still thought it would have been nicer a little bit bigger however, it is beautifully made. This foo is pretty light because its main component is a mic of fiberglass and clay. I did not pick the Foo dogs pair, but just one with its left paw on a ball. Sometimes called lion dogs these Chinese Emperor creatures are synonym of protection. Traditionally represented since the Han dynasty, some of the most beautiful specimen can be seen in the Forbidden City and are from the Qing dynasty. The one I bough is the female, the Yin, and represents the circle of life. This one has its mouth open, not close. It is a beautiful and lightweight piece, but I just hope it will make it outdoor in Texas as it seems a little bit fragile. Maybe later on I will buy the male.
