Large Vintage Foo Dogs
These two large guardians represent yin and yang. Typically the male is holding the ball which symbolizes the world and the female holds a pup under her right paw. These two appear to be almost identical with slight variations found on each. The pair has been painted with a bronze finish highlighted in areas with green, meant to give the impression of aged bronze when viewing from afar. There what appears to be a mark incised on the underside of one of the dogs.
Excellent condition. The dogs measure approximately 10.5" tall, 7" long and 5" wide. They would make a perfect pair to place in front of a fireplace.
