Antique Asian iron Foo Dog statue
Hollow Iron Foo Dog crouched with its left paw on top of a ball against its body. Foo Dogs are really lions, the proud Mother of the feline race. Although lions were not indigenous to China, lion artwork and sculptures were imported gifts to the emperor. Later introduced in Chinese primitive art, the lion became associated with Buddhism as the defender of law and protector of sacred buildings. Traces of gold gilding.
Hollow Bronze Buddha seated in prayer, his oval face with a serene expression, small bow shaped full lips, downcast almond shaped eyes, finely arched eyebrows, elongated earlobes, the hair arranged in rows of small curls and surmounted by an usnisa, a symbol of the cosmic openness of an enlightened being. Traces of dark green patina.
Silver tetradrachm coin with Athena wearing a crested helmet ornamented with three olive leaves on the obverse and a standing owl with an olive twig in the upper left with inscriptions reverse.
