condition: excellent
size / dimensions: 19 1/2"X10"X21"

FOO DOGS - YING & YANG. Male has the world (globe) under his paw and the Female has the baby under its paw, ie; Male protects the world and the Female protects the family. These are sometimes referred to as temple lions. Hand carved from solid quartz, we estimate the weight around 100 to 125 pounds each.
In the far east there is the belief that when placed at the entrance of a home protection is given. Should you check the history you will find these were cast in metals such as bronze etc. and extremely valuable and significantly larger than these.
These were purchased from a gallery in Santa Fe New Mexico at a price of $1200.00 and are believed to date in the 18th century.
Would consider a reasonable offer. A REASONABLE OFFER.
