Monumental Carved Indian Entrance Doors

About

This monumental entry doorway is from Uttar Pradesh, India, circa 1920. Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan both share a tradition of intricately carved architectural wood work. This doorway was once embedded in a masonry wall surrounding a residential compound. The lintel is decorated with flowers and vines and depictions of both Lord Krishna and Ganesha. The heavy doors were secured from the inside. Originally the door frame and conferred doors were painted. The doors have somewhat smoother texture than the door frame. It is possible that the doors have been replaced or that they were more thickly painted and protected from the elements. In any case, the old hinge pins have been replaced.
