Foo Dogs – Protectors of your Sanctuary

Sprout home always carries interesting items and my visit to their site today turned up yet another great item. Yesterday I was talking about the trend to incorporate worldly influences in the garden. Chinese and other Asian inspirations didn’t make it into my collection (I just didn’t find anything) but Foo (fu) dogs might just be a perfect accent. Foo dogs are highly symbolic in Asian cultures and Buddhist religions. Fu means happiness – so they are happy dogs and their purpose is to protect sacred places and ensure tranquility.

These little guys are charming at $60 a piece and in such pretty colors I think they could be a fitting protector of your garden.
