These 2 pieces are very colorful and eye catching! I believe the material is a ceramic/ pottery. There are 2 pieces to each one.These are very heavy, weighing over 5 Lbs. Note: There are some chips on the outside and there is some cracking on the inside lids, not to the point its gonna break or anything like that. (see pics) (does not affect its beauty), please use the zoom feature to look at photos closely. Heres a bit of what I learned in my research.
Chinese guardian lions, commonly called stone lions in China and sometimes called a foo dog in the West, are symbolic sculptures of the Asiatic lion. They are placed at the entrance of an important building to guard the grounds and the people within. They have been part of the history of China and southeast Asia for thousands of years.
As with much of Asian culture, these ancient guardian lions are complex and multifaceted expressions of symbolic Chinese traditions. Please message us if you?
