Memories are made of this

I love oriental doors they are so colourful, especially the ones into the temples.

These are samples of Korean temple doors.

He’d also made doors for Arsenal and Liverpool.

Doors are endlessly interesting, wondering about the stories and lives that have unfolded behind them.
