Hôtel de la guerre Versailles
To end this series about the former war ministry, here are some doorway details...

Pour clore cette série sur l'ancien hôtel de la guerre, voici quelques détails du portail...

And a couple more shots of the doors taken awhile back, hence the different light and the fact that the façade is cleaner...

Et encore deux vues, prises il y a un certain temps, ce qui explique la différence de lumière et le fait que la façade soit plus propre...

The carvings and the doors are well rendered. I like the contrast between them.

I want to put that lion on the front of my building! ;-)

I think I might go for a slightly more simple entrance, RedPat. :-)

Je retiens surtout le detail de la langue!

Michelle said...

I love seeing the intricate detail.

Randy said...

Very decorative entrance.

Stuart said...

That lion looks a bit human... I wonder if the sculptor was making a commentary or a joke !?

All very grand and very detailed, it's a wonder anyone actually makes it through the doors with so much to see and admire!

Obviously there is quite a lot to see in the details of this door. I wonder what the message is with that bird on the head of that man. Interesting.

I always like a blue door. Was the first image a fountain at one time? MB

James said...

I like these ornate details. Hopefully it wont be long before I take some pictures of them myself. :-)



The top one reminds me of Gene Simmons from the band KISS. ;-)

A funny pose amid a lot of very serious ones...

I couldn't believe those cameos were on the doors. I imagined they were on the walls.
