Photographer's Note

These are some of the rooftiles that make the rim of a Ming-dynasty building in the collection of Qiankou, close to the Yellow Mountains (Huang Shan) in Anhui province.
Here they brought together several Qing and Ming houses from the area around, that had to make space for new development. Most houses have different tiles like these, but I like the laughing faces on these ones.

They differ a bit in sizes and shape, which make me wonder how they're made. Probably it's due to how they dried while hardening, or they used different moulds in those days. One is in great detail, but the other one is more blurred, probably because the mould had become old.
