Western-Style Temple Lions/西洋の獅子/西方的石獅子

I saw these lions in Tainan the other day.  Taoist temples often have stylized lions in front, but I've never seen ones like this before.  They look very "western".  They remind me more of the lions in front of the Research Library building in New York than they do of typical Taoist temple lions.
