It is a fragment of roof-end tile with apsara design in relief.<br />
<br />
This fragment of a red-brown, high-fired concave eave-end roof tile features a <em>bicheon</em> or <em>apsaras</em>&nbsp;(a celestial being of the clouds and waters in Hindu and Buddhist mythology) design. It is made from fine clay, resulting in a smooth surface and robust appearance. The left part of the tile is no longer present; only the heavenly cloth and cloud design remain. The narrow upper and lower rims of this tile are bordered with rows of dots, while the left and right edges have no rim. Clear traces of trimming and smoothing with water are visible on the edges and back of the tile.<br />
