These are a few guardian lions (stone lions) photographed in Chengdu, Sichuan Province and Shenzhen in Guangdong Province. All but the last are in orthodox postures, but show differences in the treatment of brows, eyes, ears, and mane. More stone lions from Chengdu can be found in lions of Wuhouci.

These lions, also photographed in Shenzhen, are interesting for the way that the cub and the ball are placed in the centre of the paws, rather than underneath the left paw.
