Cette forme de toit, surmontée du Hô-ô, le phénix, reste assez rare dans l’architecture japonaise.

SONG DYNASTY HANDSCROLL: Cloudy Mountains BY Mi Youren (1074–1151), ink on paper, 10 7/8 x 22 7/16 in. (27.6 x 57 cm). Metropolitan Museum, N.Y. Created with wet ink dots, this style is the immediate predecessor of the evocative ink-wash landscape style of the later Southern Song period. Referred to by scholar-artists as "ink play," the style suggests the importance of the painter's psychological expression, thereby raising the status of painting to that of poetry and calligraphy.
