Quick History of Foo Dogs

Foo Dogs or guardian lions are a symbol of Chinese culture and Buddhism that originated from ancient India. They are usually carved from stone and called shishi (石獅; shíshī) in Chinese, or lion dogs or foo dogs in English. They are often seen in pairs, with a male holding a ball that represents the physical world and a female holding a cub that represents the spiritual world. They are believed to protect buildings from evil spirits and enemies. They were first used in Chinese imperial palaces, and then spread to other Asian countries such as Japan (see komainu), Korea, Philippines, Tibet, Thailand, Myanmar, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, India, Nepal, Cambodia, Laos, and Malaysia.
