A cave house dweller stands next to a doorway, which he decorated with paint and latticework. The cave house, or yaodong (窑洞 yáodòng), is a popular form of dwelling in central China made from earth and is mostly seen in the Loess Plateau. It can be carved out of town walls or hillsides, and also built into the ground.
