Weekly Photo Challenge: Unique – Tlaquepaque

20130202-095602.jpg

This files neatly in the category of the unique to my way of thinking. This ornate, carved – nay, sculpted – wooden door is in a small touristy spot near Sedona, Arizona called Tlaquepaque (pronounced, te-lack-ee-pack-ee), also lovingly known as “To Lock Your Pockets”.

Without going in to the kind of wood it was carved out of (which I do not know) or how big the tree was from which it was hewn (which I also don’t know) I like it as an example of the convergence of art with functionality, and bring it to your attention here.

I hope you also can appreciate its fine points.
