Fo Lions
Fo lions, also known as guardian lions, enjoy high popularity in Chinese art. In their appearance they are part dragon and part lion. These mythical creatures usually come in pairs and were originally positioned to guard the entrance of Buddhist temples. In the decorative arts, they are often manufactured as decorative vessels made from ceramic, marble or bronze.

Langyaohong (Sang de Boeuf)
The method of porcelain decoration in the Sang de Boeuf style was developed at the imperial kilns at Jingdezhen, East China, under the supervision of Lang Tingji (1663-1715) during the Kangxi reign (1662-1722). The thick and vitreous deep bright red glaze gives the Sang de Boeuf porcelain its distinctive appearance. The traditional Sang de Boeuf glazing technique inspired European artists throughout the ages.
