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 by the original owner or the artist, with a bronze finish highlighted in areas with green, which gives the impression of aged bronze when viewing from afar. There is 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.
