Shishi China Art
This pair of ancient bronze lions comes from a collection of stylized guardian lions known in Chinese as Shi - Shishi (Shi - Shi Shi) or Shi Shishi. Guardian lions, often called Foo Dogs in the West, were a common depiction of the lion in imperial China. The tongue-twisting associated with this sound is often mistakenly referred to as not originating from China itself. The Chinese Guardian Lion is known as the "Guardian Lion" and is one of the most popular and iconic figures in Chinese art and literature.
This contradictory relationship is reinforced by the fact that Shi - Shishi is often confused with "Guardian Lion" in contemporary China. It may also be that the guardian lion figure is more likely to be the "guardian lion figure" from the ancient world of ancient China than the modern world.
The Guardian Lion can be the "Guardian Lion Figure" from the ancient world of ancient China or the modern world. Japanese lion dogs are extinct, apparently derived from Chinese foo dogs, and protective lions may have been the guardians of the lion.
The word fu means "Buddha" in Chinese, and foo dogs are similar to the two Chinese dog breeds associated with the lion. Dog breeds originating from China resemble Chinese guardian lions, hence they are also called lion dogs.
Typically made of stone, stone lions (shishi) are also known to be carved more realistically. In isolated cases, such as the guarding of the temple of Guan Yu, there is even an isolated case of a stone lion with a lion's head above it.

The image of the lion plays an important role in giving the impression that he is considered the protector of spiritual teachings and dharma because of his connection to Buddhism. The Japanese have a long history of protecting and protecting their people and culture from the threat of lions.
One well-known theory is that shishi is derived from the Chinese Foo Dog (see Learning below). Chinese word for lion (including statues) is shi shi or shishi (Shi Zi) And there is evidence that this creature appeared in China at the same time and was called Xie Zhi. If the idea of a fantastic animal was imported from Korea via Korea to China, then the right one is a coma - inu (Korean dog). In Japan, the lion, dog and shshshi (jishi) came from Japan because of their connection to Buddhism and Dharma.
As a connoisseur and collector of rare Chinese, the crowning attraction of this extensive collection is the tea set that previously belonged to Marie Antoinette. The role of Yan San Niang was written and produced in Tangren by Liu Shi Shi, one of China's most famous actresses.

This piece is rarely seen and exhibited in the form of a large peony, which is considered repulsive to evil and surrounds Shi Shi in a natural environment full of foliage. Antique hand-carved Asian dragon and lion figures with small figures, in the middle of each one a dragon and lion figure.
The lion is said to live in a mythical mountain called Seiryozan (Japanese pronunciation), which is named after the mythical lion of the same name in Japan. Asian lions, imported by Asian lions along the Silk Road trade route to China, were often held by emperors, and the popularity of symbolic lions spread to other parts of Asia, such as the Middle East, Africa, and South America.
The forms of the Chinese Guardian Lion were very different, and the earliest examples of Guardian Lions showed a great variety of styles, poses and details, but from time to time they were formalized and converted into generally accepted standardized rules during the Ming Quing. As it was, the appearance, pose and accessories of these lions were formalized and became the basis for the design of many of China's most famous guardians, such as Qin Shi Dao of the Qin Dynasty and Zhou Dynasty of the Qing Dynasty. The details of Shi Shi are completely preserved and show the original features accentuated with gold enamel.
