Description

Komainu 狛犬, the lion-dog guardian statues in Japanese culture, symbolize protection, balance, and harmony. They serve as protectors of Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples, guarding the entrances and warding off evil spirits. The paired komainu, one with an open mouth and the other with a closed mouth, represent the unity of opposites and the balance in the universe. These statues are an essential part of religious tradition, often receiving offerings and rituals, and they are also admired for their artistic and aesthetic value.
