I have a number of portals or gates in my collection. I have a fascination with them. Each one is suggestive of where it goes and where it is coming from. They stir the imagination and make you wonder what is on the other side and why it even exists in the first place. This one is a Stairway to a Haven. I could have said Heaven but I chose not to. Heaven is only one kind of haven. There is more than one kind of place to escape from and to. Here you have a relatively dark and mysterious looking place that is illuminated by the ladder and light from the opening at the top of it. The oranges and yellows suggest daylight and an escape from a place that looks strange and subterranean.
