Vigorously carved chimera pair with stretching legs and heads rearing forward, the mystical beast is characterized with upright ears, open mouth, bulging eyes and protruding fangs in archaic pose. The ferocious demeanor of these guardian beasts are expressively portrayed in the mother and pup chimera pair. The initial appearance of chimera design can be traced back to Shang dynasty (1600-1027 B.C.), approximately a thousand years ahead of the mythical guardian lion design found in the Han (206 B.C.-220 A.D.).
