Decorative elements

These are some of the decorative elements in temples and tombs that caught my eye. A leaf shaped plaque with lovely calligraphy [don't know what it says].
Mosaic work was used at many tomb sites, as well as glazed tiles. These seen at Tu Duc Tomb.
 Painted and mosaic decorations on this column. Note the wonderful dragon scales made from blue and white ceramic pieces. I assumed it was recycled crockery.

Cloud interpretations.
And the super ornate Khai Dinh Tomb where the walls were covered in mosaic work.
