An absolutely stunning figure of an ancient chinese fo dog ,from the yuan dynasty .
This particular item which dates to circa 1279-1368 AD, is fabulous allover condition .
It is made from polished black basalt and comes from the time of the legendary Kubla Khan ,

The Fo dogs are known to have represented temple guardian figures and as such are very rare.
