Chinese lions get a paint job

The Chinese lions have appeared in the blog before, most recently last summer. They also turned up herethere, and here too. The story is I found the pair chucked out by the road and rescued them. This was several years back and they’d since started to look like they’d been taking in a bit too much sun.



It was time for a little sprucing with gold paint.



Although they weren’t painted differently originally, I thought the eyes should be red.


You can sort of see the newly red eyes. And look at those teeth! (Somebody hasn’t been brushing.) Gotta love the intricate detail.

      Oh, the lions weren’t so peeled when I found them so somebody had even less reason to chuck them. Your question gave me the idea to look around online & see how these are traditionally painted – looks mostly like one color (unless it’s a person in a costume).
