Archive3d object. Reduced mesh and attached base for easier printing.
I'm advised this thing might be a lion. The original object is from Archive3d.com and was named "Dragon". I'm told these are called "Fu, or Foo" dog lions. I'm advised this one is female with a piece of meat under her paw, the males are depicted with a ball, or a stack of coins under their paw..

I am printing it now

In Chinese is "??", means stone lion. Better call it "Guardian Lion", because it is not a dog. Chinese use guardian lion since Han Dynasity (about 2000 years ago). It looks like this is because there is no lion in ancient China. They think the lion is a powerful creature like dragon, so use their imagination to create this lion-like creature.

Where's the other one?

This one is the female. You can tell because beneath her paw is a cub. The male has beneath his paw a ball made of coins, he's the bread winner.

Hey, don't blame me, it's how they're made.

I didn't know it was made of coins. I was told it was the globe and symbolized his power over the world. There may be slight variations that I'm not familiar with.

OK, looks like they are called fu (or foo) dog lions. When I was in China in the Forbidden City they told me they were lions. Here's a link where they call them fu dogs and fu dog lions.

Hmmm... I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure that's a lion.
