For Thursday Doors, I am looking at the Washington State Capitol
Justice Building interior is more pink-mauve than the Legislative building
(see the top shell scroll), and perhaps it is because it was painted at a later date.
This detracts just a bit from the beauty of this lovely building,
but that may be just me — I am not a lover of these colors.
The front door is lovely, and the building is so dark it was hard to get a picture,
but I drew some of the decorative brass detailing, below. As you approach the doors, the torchéres which flank the outside are perhaps the scariest lights I’ve ever seen (below).
On the inside, the most beautiful brass lion torchéres flank the doors (below).
The Torchéres of Mordor (my name for them!)
