5 Of The Most Amazing and Opulent Doors on The Planet!– To celebrate PullCast’s love for Doors and Door Handles, we decided to show you some of the Most Famous Doors on The Planet! And why did we decided to do this? As the famous actress, Elizabeth Taylor said once “There are so many doors to be opened, and I’m not afraid to look behind them”.
A door represents an opening to something and it’s, usually, the first impression we have of something or someone. For that reason, it’s the first opportunity we have to receive or create some impressive visual impact, and that’s why Doors and Door Handles are so important! The five examples we are about to show you certainly cause that visual impact and have a cultural significance that, on her own, is significant enough!
The Holy Door at St Peter’s Basilica, Rome – In the Roman Catholic faith, the Holy Door is normally bricked up and only opened on special years known as “Jubilees”. The faithful then pass through the door in a rite going back centuries. The great bronze panels at St Peter’s Basilica are in fact relatively modern, having replaced the previous wooden ones in 1949. Nevertheless, they are amazing and opulent.
The Portal of the Last Judgement at Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral, Paris – We stay in a more Religious Theme to show you the powerful Portal of the Last Judgement in Paris. The intricately carved portal depicts the last judgment and it’s stunning to look at. Many eyes have looked on the wonderful doorway to Paris’s illustrious Cathedral over its 800-year history.
Columbus Doors on US Capitol building, Washington – These nineteenth-century bronze doors measure nearly 17 feet tall by nine feet wide and depict scenes from the life of explorer Christopher Columbus in a series of highly ornate carvings. It was designed by American sculptor Randolph Rogers and it’s a pure work of art that represents the beginning of the United States History of Civilization.
Brass Doors of the Royal Palace in Fez, Morocco – The Royal Palace is one of the most elegant and powerful buildings in Africa. Located in Fez, the Palace isn’t open to the public, but the three magnificent gates that lead to the stunning gardens can be easily seen and are a much-visited tourist attraction in their own right.
