Chinese guardian lions are known as Shishi or in the West, Foo Dogs. They are not dogs at all but lions. They are iconic images of pre-modern China and have traditionally stood outside imperial palaces and the wealthy. They are believed to have powerful protective benefits. They are always displayed as a pair with a male and female lion. The male is shown on the left and the female on the right. This is a manifestation of yin and yang, the female representing yin and the male yang. According to feng shui, correct placement of the lions is important to ensure their beneficial effect. When looking out of a building through the entrance to be guarded, looking in the same direction as the lions, the male is placed on the left and the female on the right. When looking at the entrance from outside the building, facing the lions, the male lion is on the right, and the female is on the left.
