Haniwa house with hipped and gable roof

Abstract

This is a haniwa, an earthenware clay object associated with the burial mounds of the Kansai region. The form of the roof, soaring up and out at the ends, is typical of many haniwa representations of dwellings of the period. -- Important as an artifact, in and of itself, the sweep of the contour of the roof in this example also calls to mind the shape of the cenotaph at Hiroshima. The cenotaph probably was created in this form to create an association with haniwa and with the ideas of home and shelter.
