lejla.vrata.1lejla.vrata.2Mirror Mirror on the Wall, am I the Fairest of Them All?

Once a week, I pass right by this Door. But this time I saw them: The 1906s Art Nouveau Door of Josef Sabetaja Finci's house.

For the last two years, I have been taking photos of doors in Sarajevo, but these are the most captivating ones. All the buildings in the spirit of the secessionist art in Sarajevo have distinctive decorative facades, with the floral motifs beneath the roof cornices, around the windows and doors. However, this Door is the only thing decorating the exterior of Finci's house.

Floral motifs, in the most beautiful manner grace this Door, especially parts of the wrought iron. What makes this Door the Fairest of Them All, is the dynamic floral motifs of laurel leafs and berries carved in the wood. No other door in Sarajevo has the wooden floral relief like this one.
