Title: Dousei Shishi Kouro

 Kouro (香炉, incense burner) is made of copper. Shishi (獅子, lion) is designed. It is short and chubby. Its shape of the body and eyebrows make an adorable look. Some people thought the lion has the sun’s power and believed that the lion would protect us from evil spirits. The lion’s mane pattern has also been designed for various items, representing the same thing.
