carpentry is a lost art.

    Have they followed any philosophy ? Such doors are carved according to people's horoscope, who live there. supposed to bring fortune, bit complicated. According to the belief a door which suits your fortune will not suit mine. I may suddenly lose all my wealth in stock market or in guindy races.
