Progress on New Front Gate for Aadheenam

The metal sculptor who is crafting the new entrance gates for the monastery (remember the lotus motif) sends these photos to us today. He is working on the unopened lotus buds. He he shows his multi-layered sketch alongside the first and basic shape of the flower bud.

Here he has added the petals, and they are discolored due to the heat of his work.

Then he polishes the metal to reveal the final lotus bud.
