Bronze Toned Female / Male Foo Dogs / Lions. Pair. China
Well designed and full of detail. Comprised of a composite material, most likely alabastrite. Male figure’s paw is on the globe; female’s paw on the foo pup.
Substantial in weight. Much heavier that the poorly-made and mass produced composite foo dogs you find in retail shops.
Acquired from an Asian art collector in Tucson. Perfect condition.
