Lou Kau Mansion (Case de Lou Kau)
|Macau Lou Kau Mansion|
In the living room on the first storey stand a row of spectacular screens. Behind them is a door which bears the inscriptions "Great Wealth and High Position". All the front windows towards the street are in Portuguese style, among which the upper two are the most delicate. They are embellished with lime sculptures and the corners are wrapped with metal.
Ascending the second storey, tourists can look down at the halls and courtyards in the mansion. The brick carvings and the lime sculptures above the doors on the first floor can also be appreciated and studied clearly. The second storey consists of a master bedroom and a living room with a lot of ancient flavor. The window frames are carved with elaborate patterns. The wood boards under the windows bear inscriptions and paintings. Even the floor is decorated with intricate patterns, which is very fascinating!
What is more, plenty of folk artists present the local customs and practices in the mansion. Take the Chaozhou Embroidery and the Foshan Paper-cut for example, both of which are unique folk handicrafts in Guangdong Province, and have been listed as items of "National Intangible Cultural Heritage". Both of them have been presented in the mansion and are of great interest to tourists.
