Female foo dogs by Reptangle Female foo dogs by Reptangle
These are two more test-paints of the soon-to-be-produced female foo-dogs. These are really fun to paint , and I hate painting. Both have glass eyes and Swarovski jewels set in their collars.They are cast in gypsum and are about 6 inches tall.
(The dog on the left has been flipped in photoshop, they are both casts of the same sculpture)
These ( and the baby foo-puppy) are Paint-your-own sculptures
produced by Windstone Editions. [link]

They are Asian guardian figures. They are supposed to be lions, but are called foo-dogs incorrectly, by people like me.
They are also called komainu or Shishi. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_…

Yeah, I was trying to make something in between a dog and a cat.
"Foo-dog" is an incorrect name for them, but I like it anyway. Real, traditional foo-dogs" are supposed to represent lions.

Soooo excited for these. My mom has a collection of foo-dog photos she took in China hanging in her office, I've been wriggling to paint one of these for her since first glimpse of them :)
