2. The Chinese Foo-Dog
The Chinese Foo-Dog, another bronze statement is not a dog at all. It is a representation of how the Chinese perceived the lion in Pre-modern China. The Foo-Lion is also found in the early Buddhist religious art. It is symbolized as the protector of Dharma or Buddhist teachings in 208 BC. As Buddhism travelled from India to neighbouring countries with the monks and priests, it spread similar art forms in the Asian Continent. The temples and monasteries were often found guarded by lion sculptures at the entrance by the monks. The Foo-Dog is how the Chinese modelled the lion statues at entrances after the native dogs.
