Exceptional and serious sculpture of a large Shishi lion dog in crouching attitude, and with a wild snarling expression. The mighty head rare expression of designed stresses the eyes very deep with glass balls, which will increase the magical expression. The very muscular designed body of the Shishi stands to the rear, the tail concisely flaming. Further, blazing of approaches, very powerful paws. Small repairs, but overall well-preserved pottery from the Bizen-production, ideal as the terraces sculpture.
