Thursday Doors

Somehow, the meat of this post disappeared. I will try to recreate it from memory.

The two photos are from the same church in Valencia. The doors are only part of picture. The door framing is quite elaborate and makes the doors seem quite substantial (which they already were).

Notice the heads missing from the two statues in the alcoves above the walking woman’s head. I guess vandalism has occurred throughout the ages.

  1. I love doors like these. I am always curious as to who came up with such fantastic work on it. The time, the energy spent in building such a masterpiece requires a true master.

    1. Glad you don’t mind the heads. When you are on a tour with a group, you can’t always wait for everyone to clear the area to take the shot. You just have time to wait for the ‘right’ people in the ‘right’ places.
