This is a rare museum-quality Ming Dynasty Terracotta Beijing Siheyuan House that was made specifically for funerary purposes during the Ming Dynasty. Mingqi funerary objects such as these could represent a replica of the house of the person in whose burial chamber it was found.

Placing items that the deceased favored, or used during their lifetime inside the burial chamber was a popular practice in China dating back more than three thousand years. Almost anything one used in daily life, such as cooking and drinking vessels, a much-loved pet or farm animal was copied and made specifically for funerary purposes, to ensure that all the needs of the deceased would be met during the journey into the afterlife and beyond.
