I believe this is literally the front door to someone's house. I like how they wanted to dress it up a bit with nicely carved figures in a nice light wood. What I don't understand is why the poor lady has to be on her head (I've rotated the picture so you can better see the Mr. and the Mrs.). There is probably a good reason for this topsy-turvy arrangement, but I can't think of one. It does remind me of a playing card where you have the image of the knight/queen/king shown in this same way, but cards get tossed around and turned upside down...doors don't! Nice handle, too, huh?
