I love beauty in utility. It was someone’s job to fashion doors for a family mausoleum. The doors featured stately borders, detailed scrollwork, impressive hardware. Nice, yes. Appropriate. But in the center there were these haunting, proud lions looking at you so directly, so intently. Keeping guard. The artisan made something truly beautiful here.
This is one of my favorite TTV shots – a good one to kick off TTV Tuesdays.
