Traditional Lion

 

 

A traditional Chinese guardian lion.  They typically come in pairs–one each on either side of a doorway to imperial palaces and tombs, temples, and the homes of wealthy people. One of the pair is male and one is female.  The male has a ball under his paw and the female has a cub.
