An imposing temple gate and boldly conceived lantern dominate the foreground. The lantern, slightly off center counter-balances the gate's firm lines and symmetry. A series of white steps create a contrast to dark hues of rich browns and black.
Wood grain is used extensively, particularly in the background, emphasizing the solid, elegant temple gate.
