A door…

Close range shots of the 500 year old portal doors to the Palazzo Ducale in Genoa, Italy…

A bronze door-knocker of Neptune riding waves from the mouth of a sea monster above…┬áiron facings studded with hundreds of defensive studs… behind are solid chestnut planks arrayed with a multitude of iron locks & bolts… all incased in a medley of marbles of various hues & cries.
