eBay Find of the Day: Foo Dogs!

In Chinese mythology, lion-like foo dogs are the sacred guardians of Buddhist temples and imperial palaces, symbolizing protection, good fortune, wisdom, and wealth.

In decorating, they're the accessory du jour, bringing a shot of color, humor, and regal kitch to bookshelves and occasional tables.

This turquoise pair stands nearly 11 inches tall and would make great bookends or entry table sentries. No matter where you place them, they're sure to be a conversation piece.

Current bid: $25.
