A Temple Archway

Just an archway inside the Daisen-in Temple. The pic is not that great as I had trouble with the light. But I do love the patterns everywhere. Patterns in the decoration at the top, line-work in the first curve, carved timber in another, The change of line from being smooth to pointed from the top to the bottom. Then there is the beautiful patterned carving at the base. If we look closely, carved timber lace work can be seen at the top of the next doorway, shown in this pic towards the bottom. So much inspiration for my stitching and lace work.
