Dear friends, are you interested in the traditional Chinese architecture? Have you heard this phrase “the Qin bricks and the Han tiles”? Today, we will guide you to learn a very small construction component of the traditional Chinese architecture--wadang, or the eave-dripping tiles. Small as they are, wadang are loaded with rich cultural connotations. Through these marvelous small pieces, you will learn not only the history of ancient China, but also the traditional aesthetics and cultural psychology of the Chinese. Meanwhile, you will also be able to appreciate the ancient Zhuan style script. Next please follow me to Xi’an Qin Brick and Han Tile Museum and find out more about wadang tiles.
