The left stone lion statue (Chinese: 左边石狮子; pinyin: zuǒbiān shí shīzi) is a furniture item in Dòngwù Sēnlín. It replaces the tanuki figurine from Doubutsu no Mori.

The left stone lion statue can be obtained from Crazy Redd's Furniture Emporium for  2,000 Bells, a treasure hunt, trees when the player has good luck, or from any villagers. It does not have any color for the purpose of fêng shui. This item is lucky, meaning it gives a 777-point Happy Room Academy bonus when placed in the player's house.

In Dòngwù Sēnlín, this item appears in the homes of Hector, Iggy, and Vladimir.

For villagers who have this item placed on the floor in their house, there is a chance that the villager will gift it to the player.

Real-world information

Real life image of a stone lion statue.

Stone lion statues, or commonly referred to as Chinese guardian lions are a traditional ornament found in China. The statues were originally from Chinese Buddhism and were popularized and spread through other Asian regions, including but not limited to Japan, Korea, and Southeast Asia. These statues would be installed in order to protect a building from harmful spirits or people.

In traditional fêng shui standards, two stone lions, one male and the other female, should be installed. The male should be placed on the right with a ball on his right paw, while the female should be placed on the left, with her cub under her left paw. The cub on the left female statue often symbolizes nurture, while the ball on the right male statue symbolizes supremacy.

However, both stone lions in Dòngwù Sēnlín do not have any sort of object lying on either their paws. Because of this, it is assumed that when the left stone lion statue is paired with the right stone lion statue, that both lions are homosexual.
