I would love to have a door like this on the front of my apartment...it would save power as we could turn off the TV and watch the door instead.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile You're too funny - and as usual - you're right!
Lol @ Ray... Just beautiful detailed scenes.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I find the detail quite amazing!

Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much Eduardo! Always appreciate your comments!
I´m with Ray here. So much to see. The flora, the trees I mean, are very mush fictitious, a combination of asian cypress and pine trees...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile Oh Juan Carlos - the artist must be able to take liberties for the sake of the art form! And - my guess is that at that time- they didn't know what didn't grow where!
This is a lot better Elizabeth think you should do every one individually, really love them.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Pedroeric! I'm so glad you like them so much!

Artwork of highestg quality! Wonderful that you are showing us these details! I can't stop gazing at all these things that are sculptured!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Each panel is a full story - and when I think about the how and why these things were created in the first place (to educate the illiterate about the Bible stories) it all really comes together!
Gosh Ellie, up close the detail is amazing,you have shown it well.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much Frank! These panels are so incredible!

Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Why thank you Rob!
A real masterpiece.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: No doubt!

Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: ! Not so far as I know Brian!
