Deeply Inviting Door

October 09

There is a delicious tension between this ancient, deep, black doorway and the group of people hanging back, almost clinging to a side wall. Ceremony has been replaced with sightseeing, and yet the door still exerts its pull. I can’t help comparing the hill to the body of a woman, the walls are her thighs and the door is an entrance to her earthy punani – literally her cave of love. Did the ancients intend that?


Before and after

I removed some people to increase the dramatic effect. The stone is much better in a pale chocolate-tinted black and white.
