Ceramic Figurines at the Gable Corner Walls

The two raised narrow walls, forming part of the gable walls, on each side of the entrance wall are known as the gable corner walls. At the top of the gable corner walls are three tiers of ceramic figurines. The first tier is an opened book. The second tier above is 'Martial Competition in the Imperial Palace' and the third tier is a depiction of the 'Seven Sages of the Bamboo Grove'. The ceramic figurines were all made in Shiwan and fired at high temperatures.
