Tomb Guardian. A human headed dog-lion guarded his deceased master from evil, way back in the Tang Dynasty of China. Those are eternal flames rising from his back, btw. Nowadays, he hangs out with a big crowd of Buddhas, Ganeshas, Kalis, Wathondaras, and even a Phillipino Jesus Christ and Blessed Mary. At the SF Asian Art Musem. #tombguardian #spiritualguardian #earthspirit #tangdynasty
