Remember them? (see picture below)

(These lions can be found on either side of the front porch, of the Falim House)

Yes, these are the two faithful lions who ‘guard’ Falim House; we were also told that these lions were made of cast iron, not stone!

They are painted red, obviously for “good luck”. I wonder if they were specially made for Foo Nyit Tse?  I know some houses have a pair of lions, but they’re made of porcelain. Besides lions, were other animals used? Other then Falim House, were there other places with similar ‘guardians’?
