So many tiles, so many textures: Sanjusangendo, Kyoto

Sanjusangendo, Kyoto sightseeing

The black tiles are lying on the roof just like scales of a fish or a snake.

The old tiles were completely handmade, and each of them has a slightly different color and texture.

They are more tasteful as time goes by, because they are not identical. If they are completely the same color and texture, they would turn to be dirty and poor as time passes.

The slightly inequality adds the richness and complexity to it.
