This amazing Tower is a rare 18th Century architectural model. It consists 4 removal parts, each representing a structural portion. The top features an elaborate roof adorned with dragons on all corners. Roof lines are very defined and realistic. Multi-layered structure makes a decorated eaves. The middle sections repeat the top's design with the addition of colonnades and central halls. The base resembles entrance doors and a prominent coin shaped window.

This is a piece that is at once substantial and exquisite. Its refined details and primitive design are the trademarks of 18th century architectures in China's Shan Xi province. To this day such towers still exist, proudly hovering over the city, protecting its people.

An important historic relic.
