Highly detailed, and about 3.4 feet tall, it is surrounded by an enclosing wall and gateway, the main doors containing tiny knocker rings. The mast on the roof holds layers that look like a series of umbrellas. Miniature models like this gives clues as to what ancient houses in China may have actually looked like.
