A rare miniature Chinese Mingqi Beijing Courtyard Terracotta House traditionally referred to as Siheyuan meaning a walled compound or courtyard house, a style still seen in many parts of China today.

The life size of these courtyard houses varied, depending on the wealth of the family. This style various a lot from the basic peasant style with no ornamentation, often made from mud brick to the lavishly and beautiful style with ornate carvings, large carved wooden ornate doors with several internal rooms branching of the main courtyard.

The siheyuan house was built with the emphasis on layout, usually the entrance facing to the south is considered to be the most auspicious according to Feng shui principles.
