    These are Chinese Shishi lions, often called foo dogs/lions. A pair usually consists of a male and female, but these are both male as evidenced by the paw on a ball, representing the world. A female would have her paw on a small lion, representing family. These are considered guardian lions and can be be found in front of temples, shrines, gates, and the like. In the U.S they are often seen in front of Chinese restaurants. Regards, Jim
