kudarimune@~
KEY WORD :@architecture / general terms
@
Also called *hirakudarimune ~. A descending ridge *tsumakudarimune ȍ~, used on a tile gable roof *kirizuma yane ؍ȉ, and a hip-and-gable roof *irimoya yane ꉮ, with a descending ridge kudarimune. The descending ridge is at a right angle to the main ridge *mune . It follows the incline *koubai z, of the roof to a point beyond the beginning of the corner descending ridge *sumikudarimune ~. Like the main ridge, all descending ridges are composed of several layers of flat tiles arranged to emphasize the curvature of the roof line. In 8c-13c, the layers of tiles were capped by ordinary convex, semi-circular tiles *marugawara ۊ. By the 14c, the advent of special coping tiles *fusumagawara Ԋ, were made to make a better fit and more pleasing finish. The outer part of these ridges began to be decorated with ogre tiles *onigawara S, and bird-perch tiles *toribusuma , also were added. The descending ridge defines the change in the roof line between the main surface and the drooping verge *minokou b.
