Numerous decorative bricks found in northern pagoda (September 06, 2004)


Archaeologists have found a great number of decorative bricks at Buddhist monks Vu Khac Truong and Vu Khac Minh's dwellings in the Dau pagoda in northern Ha Tay province.



Six bricks, including two patterned ones, were discovered at Buddhist monk Truong's dwelling.

At the other hermitage, archaeologists found 600 bricks, which are 41cm long, 17cm wide and 15cm high each, with lots of different decorative patterns and 55 tiles patterned with lotus and chrysanthemum flowers, clouds and 12 animal designs.



Bricks decorated with dragons are thought to date back to the Mac dynasty in the 16th century and others with lotus shaped lamp supports, to the Le dynasty in the 15th-16th centuries.
