The Chinese guardian lion is the protector of the Buddhist faith. It is both a symbol of Chinese imperial power and the ineluctable force of Buddhist doctrine. Guardian lions are traditionally shown with a ferocious expression. However, such a prototype doesn't apply here on this scholar's rock crystal featuring four guardian lions frolicking on a rocky agate. The lions are dynamic and playful, with swirling manes spilling down their shoulders, highly expressive and awe-inspiring. Substantial in weight, brisk in translucency, and resinous in luster. While preserving its organic shape, the exquisite artistry of this four-lions scholar's stone barely perturbs the crystal's natural formation. It comes with a lighted glass dome for display purposes.
