Hand-carved from solid limestone, these mythical figures are qilin, hybrid creatures from Chinese mythology thought to bring luck and happiness. Crouching upon lotus plinths, these qilin are sculpted with lion-like features, though with the head of a dragon, belly of a snake, and feathered, fan-like tails. Divine and peaceful creatures, qilin are believed to be benevolent protectors of those with good intentions. We love the idea of nestling these whimsical beasts in a shady corner of a garden, guarding the home with their watchful eyes.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
