I see that some of you are fans of those gorgeous doors on the San Geronimo Church! Here is a close-up for you!
If you do a web search, you will find that there are many pictures available online of this historic church in the Taos Pueblo. Over the years, it has been a favorite subject by artists and photographers alike. But web images that reveal the close-up character of the church’s twin front doors are not that common. The pine foundation is embellished with carvings, obviously scooped with hand tools. Then stacked wooden trim is artfully arranged to form decorated crosses. Briefly pausing to step inside, one can’t help but also notice the stately iron hardware, admire the beauty created by regional craftsmen, and wonder about the rich history of everyone who has visited and worshiped at this holy place.
