A monumental entrance to an Indian mansion near Mumbai (Bombay). During the British Colonial period, Bombay greatly epanded its wealth through trade. Merchants and aristocrats built fine mansions and palaces with masonry walls and wooden fittings. Many of these old houses occupy large tracts of prime urban land and are being de-constructed and replaced with modern high-rise buildings. The old parts, everything from foundation stones to floors and doors to rafters and roof tiles are saved and sold off. This massive doorway blends elegantly simple framing with delicately carved details including flowes, vines and religious symbols. A likeness of the Hindu God Ganesh, the master of the universe's formless energy, is carved in the middle of the lintel. Metal rosettes further decorate the doors and cloumns.
