Tiger's Eye Guardian Lion Pendant - Foo Dogs


NATURAL TIGER'S EYE STONE - Linked to the magical tiger, the king of beasts in Eastern mythology, Tiger’s Eye stone is an ancient talisman that portrayed courage, integrity and right use of power. It was chosen by the Egyptians for the eyes in their deity statues to express divine vision, and was believed to provide the protection of the sun and earth combined, of Ra, the sun god and Geb, god of the growing land. Roman soldiers carried it to deflect weapons and to be brave in battle. It has been highly regarded throughout history as a stone of prosperity and good fortune, protecting one’s resources and reflecting back malice or threats from others.

GUARDIAN LIONS - Also known as 'Foo Dogs', these are symbols of protection and wealth. The mythology that evolved around the Foo Dogs revered the creatures as the ancient mystical protectors of heaven. The ancient Chinese Foo Dogs were carved from stone, such as marble or granite and stood senty in front of palaces, temples and homes. A pair of enormous Foo Dogs, one female (yin) and the other male (yang), were believed to stand guard on either side of the gates at the entrance to heaven. They could be quite massive and imposing with their wide open mouths in midroar.
