Guardian lions have traditionally stood in front of Chinese Imperial palaces, Imperial tombs, government offices, temples, and the homes of government officials and the wealthy, from the Han Dynasty (206 BC-AD 220), and were believed to have powerful mythic protective benefits. The lions are usually depicted in pairs. When used as statuary the pair would consist of a male leaning his paw upon an embroidered ball (in imperial contexts, representing supremacy over the world, authority and command) and a female restraining a playful cub that is on its back (representing protection, loyalty and nurturing).

Temple Lions should be place outside your home and not inside your resident. It should be place at your entrance to your house. Always place the Temple lions high up and not sitting on the floor. Always put the Male Lion on the left hand side of your entrance (inside looking out) and the Female Lion on the right hand side on your entrance facing outside your house.
