Bring Good Fortune with this rare Blue Foo w/revolving ball in mouth and foot on culturally correct hollow ball. Belief is to spin the mouth ball exactly three times to bring good fortune. Most Chinese Fu or Foo Dogs do not have the mouth ball, only a foot ball to signify union of heaven and earth. Blue Foo weighs 2 lbs., 6 1/2" tall, over 22 years old, unblemished, from the editor's personal Foo Dog collection. Foos come in twos but his partner is missing so he’s half price at only $68 including insured shipping. Purchase now or call 828-286-9946 from 10-4 EST weekdays.
