The LG Guardian is indicative of Louie Gong's (Nooksack) trend-setting merger of art traditions and themes from his mixed heritage and urban environment. Inspired by the overlapping purpose of the guardian lion and Coast Salish house post, the LG Guardian is a Chinese Guardian Lion (a.k.a Fu Dog) designed in the style of Northwest Native art.
If you look closely, you can see that the design depicts the male and female guardian lions facing one another. Their combined profile images create a single - more formidable - guardian.
This beautiful case is made with real maple and finished with a protective clear coat.

This case is crafted from real maple wood in the USA. It includes a matte black plastic bumper that snaps into place perfectly, providing an added layer of protection for your phone.
*Since this case is 100% real authentic wood, the images seen above are representations of the wood. Actual wood grain, patterns and knots will vary with each individual skin. Your skin is unlike anyone else’s in the world, literally.
Louie Gong (Nooksack), founder of Eighth Generation, is a self-taught artist who was raised by his grandparents in the Nooksack tribal community in northwest Washington. He got his start by painting cultural art on shoes, but realized that creating one-of-a-kind pieces did not provide a sustainable pathway to success, and began applying his artwork to accessibly-priced products. Louie’s unique style merges traditional Coast Salish art with influences from his mixed heritage and urban environment to create work that resonates widely across communities and cultures.
