Four Intricately Carved Doors

I could look at these doors forever. I believe they are great. The very top panels are complimentary in design. The center tall pierced carvings are beautifully executed. The center panels are loaded with mythic animals from the tortoise to the carp. The bottom panels have a "tombstone" carving with enough simplicity to make the doors less fussy than they might have seemed with the intensity of the carving up above. All in all, among my very favorites.
