A Lion or Dog of Fo
White Marble
Early Qing Dynasty.
W:55 D:70 H:115cm

A most unusual rendition of a Lion or Dog of Fo. The beast is shown in a lively dramatic pose. Originally this would be one of a pair which would have stood at the gate to a courtyard entrance. Judging by the quality of the work the house would most certainly have belonged to a person of high rank.
