Description

Architectural view of a wooden arched door with foliated metal work. The metal work of the crossrails are reminiscent of tree limbs, from which branches with leaves extend in a curving motif. The knocker, located in the center of the door, consists of two metal branches that converge evoking the shape of a heart.
