The gate was made after the life gate. My challenge was what to put next to it so I decided on a sea scape as this was on Cape Cod.
I wanted it to have the same feel as the first gate, so I included the dragons and the lotus flowers. In the center I created a bronze sea scape complete with a diving whale. On the inside of this gate are two carved heads which can only be seen on the inside just to add a little mystery to it.
The construction is traditional, with wrap attaching parts to frame.
