In China, guardian lion statues often stand watch in front of important buildings: temples, tombs, palaces, offices and some wealthier homes. You’ll see them in pairs—one female, one male—bringing protection and balance. That tradition has been transplanted here, with this pair of guardian lions (often called “foo dogs” in the West) keeping protective watch over the treasure of knowledge contained within the library.
