I've been fond of Foo-dogs since I made sculptures of one some years ago for my family.
(If you want to know how i made that, read this!)
Foo-Dogs are mythalogical guaridans of temples in China and Japan, they're often found as a pair of statues on either side of the entrance.
The female will be on the left and have her paw on a cub, the male will be on the right and have his paw on a sphere.
Here's a new take on Foo-dogs.
These are avaliable as t-shirts, as a pair or individually, and are avaliable as cards and prints at Redbubble.
