The ongoing Chinese Ancient Eaves Tiles Exhibition at Chengdu Yongling Museum displays over 300 selected Chinese ancient eaves tiles, including those in the period from the Qin (221BC-207BC) and Han (202BC-220) dynasties to the Ming (1368―1644) and Qing (1636―1912) dynasties collected by the museum, as well as more than 60 in the Qin and Han dynasties collected by a museum in Xi'an focusing on the collection of ancient bricks and tiles.
Eaves tile, called Wadang (瓦当) in Chinese, is a pendulous part of the top end of an imbrex, a unique architectural component.
