Foo Dogs

Chinese guardian lions or Foo Dogs as we westerners call them are said to possess mythic protective powers.  Many of these statues have graced Imperial palaces, government buildings and the homes of the wealthy in China for many centuries.  In Feng Shui they are a symbol of a families status and wealth and are often placed at the entry to your home.  Today Foo Dogs are used as a decorative accessory in many design styles of homes and they have been at the top of my must have list.   Take a look at how they are incorporated into different rooms.  The little white ones at the end are mine and I am more than pleased with this set.  What are some of your favorite accessories around your home?

Until next time!
