Hidden Treasures



This door has a definite attraction... even from a distance...the powerful design around the door grabs you from afar and pulls you in - no questions asked...you just do it! Once you are closer, you marvel at the unique shape of the doors (not just boring rectangles; these are more geometric!), then you see the beveled glass in the windows and the simple yet nice handle. Great, good eye for seeing those things. Now, look even closer...go on, click on the picture so you can see a bigger image...do you see it there behind the windows...the geometric wrought-iron work - behind the glass (as opposed to the traditional placement in front of the glass), and if you look closely, you can see through the windows into this building's foyer where there is another set of doors with cut glass work. Of course, these windows also provide a reflection of what is across the street. Quite a lot going on in one simple photo...sometimes it pays to REALLY LOOK at something!

Like Wanda, I immediately thought of Egyptian style! the shape is very unusual, and so are the decorations, the face and the eagles..This one is really strange!

I have to agree with Wanda, it does have an Egyptian look.

We love the creamy yellow of the stone around the door and the door does command attention,
