As the Lil’ Familiars are the companions of ‘The Other Place,’ so the Temple Lions are it’s guardians and protectors. They hark from a period in the late 80’s when Clairy studied silversmithing with her Opa, and take heavy influence from a very large carved Temple Lion that stood as a sentinel in his studio. These solid and reliable creatures guard the gateways and portals to and from ‘The Other Place,’ as well as spaces of meaning and importance, but can also be companions for Wayfarers of renown, and bring good luck to those they choose to wander with.
