Doorways of Brisbane

This is one of the entrances to the Nepalese Peace Pagoda, a hand-carved wooden building in South Bank given by the Nepalese government to Brisbane. Apparently, it took 160 Nepalese families 2 years to craft! They made it in sections and shipped it over from Nepal in 1988 in time for the World Expo which was held here in the same year. The detail is stunning.

That is certainly not the average doorway you come across. Exquisite.
