A wonderful, good sized pair of mid twentieth century carved wooden food dogs in a dark, glossy finish. Two opposing males, very powerful, with paws on the world. Excellent pierced details, with the mouths and the globes having carved, looses sphere in them that rattle around when moved. Difficult carving technique! Each foo dog measures 4 1/2 inches (11.4cm) tall and about 5 inches (12.5cm) long. Foo Dogs are said to offer protection for any place they are guarding; placing them at an entrance was commonly done at imperial palaces and the homes of important, wealthy people.
