Decorative tiles are particularly made for decorating the edge of the protruding corners of roofs. They are usually God figures or Animal Gods figures. For the dignity and majesty of the design, they also have the supernatural reason to be set which is protecting the building from evil spirits.

This is a Daedangsabu figure and it was specially designed for Gyeongbok Palace in Seoul.
