In our time in Italy we have seen a lot of choir seating, doors, and various sculptures that are ornately crafted and carved. For some reason the woodwork in the Certosa di Padula caught my eye more than other places we visited.
The church door was created in 1374 out of Cedar of Lebanon. It is decorated with scenes from the Annunciation of Mary, Saint Lorenzo and more. The set of doors got a lot of use: prayers were said twice a day and once during the night.
