They are actually lions. In China, where foo dogs originated, they are called shi, meaning “lion,” or shishi, meaning “stone lion.”
They are a symbol of protection and have been used in China homes as symbolically protective décor for hundreds of years. Foo dogs seem especially appropriate in places where they are sure to be noticed like for example a focal point in your living room. One thing is for sure they are rare and interesting.
