    Story Behind the Art:
    This handcrafted item and many others come from a third-generation family-run workshop in mainland China. Their skills of hand-painting, hand-rubbed lacquering and hand-tooling have been passed down for many generations. We are proud to support them in their quest to keep their age-old techniques alive for future generations. Many of the artists are hired out of semi-retirement to work from home training the next generation to become master craftsmen. These masters are highly respected in their craft and their culture which have survived through many Chinese dynasties and continue to produce valuable and desirable pieces for your home decor.

  • Not what I expected..

    I just received these statues and was a bit disappointed at how completely off the color was. They appear to be more of a bronze tone with gold flecks on the website...but when I pulled them out of the packaging I was surprised at how grey they were and no gold accent at all. Overall I do like the detail on the statues but not sure if they will go where I was planning on putting them in my home. May return them...

  • Shi-sha dogs!

    I've been looking for a couple of shisha dogs (as they say in Okinawa) or Foo dogs (as they say in china) but have been having a hard time finding a correct pair. Many places display two dogs but with both mouths closed or open which negates the purpose of the dogs. One dog is supposed to have its mouth closed and the other open. These looks great, have great detail, and are correct according to the lore. I wish they were a little larger but still happy with them.

  • Just as Pictured

    These pieces came in on the date they were supposed to, and when I opened the box they were lighter than I expected, but still heavy enough not to topple over on accident. They look just like the picture and I couldn't be happier with them ! Thank you!

  • FOO DOGS

    Not so authentic to oriental flair but easy to pull off - they do not weigh very much so do not expect them to actually hold up books but I really do like them.

  • I am in love with my Foo Dogs

    I bought these because I've gotten into feng shui. I didn't want them to be left outside, so I have them inside on either side of my door looking out the side windows. I still feel protected and I can appreciate them more from inside my home.
