This is a door from Gyeongbok palace in Korea, with a traditional lock to secure its weathered wood. I have walked the grounds here a few times, and have never tired of its beauty!
I especially love the haetae guarding the gates and entrances to different buildings with the complex—haetae is a famous creature from Korean mythology. It is a protective creature, said to guard against natural disasters.
I’m posting my door inspirations from around the world to celebrate the release of The Guardians of Zoone on Feb25! There are no haetae in Zoone but there is, of course, one very unique skyger named Tug!
You can find order links for the books of Zoone HERE.
