#STN-033 Ming Dynasty Carved Stone Post of A Young Immortal Riding on An Auspicious Fu-Lion

This Ming Dynasty stone statue of a young boy riding on a Fu-lion (commonly called Fu-dog) is the top portion of a stone hitching post. The human figure derived from a Daoist figure called ”青獅童子 (Green-Lion Boy Guardian)”,whose specialty is in the field of Chinese astrology related to I-Jing and Ba Gua. Although the carved characters on the banner the boy is holding can not be read from the photo, this figure riding on a Fu-lion probably embeds a meaning of "Summoning Wealth and Blessing (招財納福)" as 福 (Fu) is Blessing. It also implies being able to ward of the evil as Fu-lion is often associated with such auspicious meaning.
