Photographer's Note

In Nepal wooden is used to make incredible beautiful carved doors and windows

There is a detail that always called my attention and it s that despite the drawings being symmetric, as happens in this door, they are not exact ( hand made no machines made )
This is easily proved looking at the faces in the higher part of the door,representing moon and sun, very similar but not equal, same happens with the carving at both sides of the door

The woman for some reason seems to be part of the door's decorations because of the light (golden reddish) she shares with it, face including
