Considering that the dragon is the sacred symbol of imperial China, guardian lions are powerful and miraculous protectors that stand in front of the Chinese imperial palaces, emperors' tombs and government offices since Han Dynasty (206 BC-220 AD). Originally, guardian lions were represented with both forefeet on the ground, and later the male would hold a ball that may represents the sun, the creative principle, or simply treasure of the place which it was guarded. The feminine principle of the lioness is indicated by the cub playing beneath her raised paw.

This fine cast pair of guardian lions are made of silver gilded bronze. Their realistically rendered broad muzzles, jagged frontal ribs, jutting fangs and square open jaws preserved a powerful force of character, finely detailed smooth surface, bouble thunderbolts on the base. They are undoubtedly vigorous in appearances and crisp in forms.
