  The deco's of the roofs
by Luchonda

The typical roofs of the houses in many open air musea are different and have some symbolic value !
The more "wings" - the more sculptures of demons there are - the more important is the inhabitant of the house.
You can see this event clearly in the forbidden city of Beijng. The external houses are sparely decorated - the more you enter the center and the main houses - the more decorated and protecting are the roofs against many evil !!
