Stone Lion

This is my self-create character, idea comes from Chinese guardian lions. Chinese guardian lions or Imperial guardian lion, traditionally known in Chinese simply as Shi, and often called "Foo Dogs" in the West, are a common representation of the lion in pre-modern China. Statues of guardian lions have traditionally stood in front of Chinese Imperial palaces, Imperial tombs, government offices, temples, and the homes of government officials and the wealthy, from the Han Dynasty (206 BC-AD 220), and were believed to have powerful mythic protective benefits. They are also used in other artistic contexts, for example on door-knockers, and in pottery. Its significance lies in good fortune, and keep jinx away.
