This is not the main entrance to this church (which is, in fact, part of The Clementinum - a former Jesuit college).Actually, it isn't to the church at all but to a sort of exhibit hall. (We have seen several exhibits here including Adolph Born - excellent!!). At first, I was taken in by it's size, the richness of the carvings that adorn the door and, of course, the frame. Actually, I have gone by this door several times and never noticed it because it is in a corner just behind and to the immediate left of another big door that you go through when you come from the street Krizovnicke namesti. (Note: from where I was standing to take the above picture, 105 degrees to my left and about 50 meters/yards away is the Old Town Square side of the Charles Bridge.)
But, back to our door here...if you look closer, you can see that the door was 'adapted' (probably rather recently) so that it no longer opens in the center (as typical double doors like this do), but only on the right side.
That, I can accept - with regret, that is if we don't mention those out-of-place diamond-shaped metal pieces imbedded in various areas of the door (see an example in the close-up photo above) especially where the doors hinges presumably are. What does bother ME about this door are the keyhole accessories (yes, I'm always zeroing in on these, aren't I?)...I find the style of these items extremely odd for this door. Am I wrong when I say that they have a very eastern (and a very not-in-the-style-of-this-door) feel to their design and material?
