Doors in China: inside and out Feb 05, 2009
I think the garden doors in China are some of the most exciting and wonderful creations. The doors are different shapes. My favorites are round but they also have other shapes. All of them create a mood or scene. In a tiny court yard it is intimate and emotional. The garden doors are set up so that there is a different view depending on which side of the door you are looking through. Once we realized that we would stand and look at both sides from the inside then go out and look at the views on the opposite. It was amazing attention to detail. The areas blended but they were different.

We also saw house doors that were outstanding. Many were richly painted and very unique. Over and over we were impressed by the talent and handicraft skills in China. We were visiting the year before the Olympics so the country was sprucing up and preparing for their entrance to the world view. It was amazing to see how much work was being done simultanously. The pictures are a few of our favorite "doors".
