Background of Chinese Temple Lions
Chinese guardian lions are a traditional Chinese ornament. They are known in everyday English as lion dogs or foo dogs. The concept originated and became popular in Chinese Buddhism. Initially used in imperial Chinese palaces, the lions were subsequently made for Chinese homes. These highly stylized lions were thought to protect the home from harmful spiritual influences and harmful people that might be a threat.
