I have a dog named Simon that looks like the first stone dog....very cool and a dog named Clancy (he is the black one I use as my picture) that looks like the second one sort of!!! Nice photos.......

I love photographing statuary of all kinds. I would definitely like to take some of these lovely ones! Amazingly old, but still so graceful and beautiful.

I like the spots on the first dog. I am sure that is some kind of fungus but looks like real intentioned spots. Maybe nature has a way of claiming its own.

Nice stone works!

Thanks JM for your comment. Yes, I think we'd better refresh our memories.

Obviously carved by very talented artists.

I'd actually like to take them home with me. I have all sorts of places in my garden where I know they'd be happy...
