Bokelian Doors: Remarkable Part of Cultural History Bokelian Doors, Photo by Ranko Maraš

March 19, 2019 - Bokelian Doors is a selection by the very inspired photographer, Ranko Maraš. And the doors - should I stay or should I go? Go for a guided tour to discover them.

"The door is the boundary. Open to the symbol of communication, the flow of life, a welcome to the guests. Locks are closed, symbolizing the capture, preserving material values. A mark and image of social status and power. The place of the first act of hospitality. They are dishonest, respected, well-marked — part of the mnemonic communication, element of polite or ugly behavior. Through the brilliant, it enters into a new life-marriage, because of everything around the door and entrance there are many procedures."
