Pair of Chinese Shizi Hong Ginger Jars

About

A rich, monochrome red glaze coats this ginger jar shaped contemporary vase, drawing attention to its updated profile and its sculptural Fu dog top. Referred to as shizi, these mythical, canine-like lions are natural protectors. Sculptures of these fearsome animals have stood guard in front of imperial palaces, tombs, temples, and wealthy homes for centuries.
