Is that one of those good luck symbols?? I have something similar from Japan inside the front door. Great perspective here.

@Gary: Thanks for the visit. This is called an onigawara (鬼瓦), or demon roof tile. It's there to protect the building by scaring away evil spirits. In Japanese slang, however, onigawara can also be a comical reference to one's wife (not mine of course!).
