Moon Gate ~

Here is one of Frank Lloyd Wright's many tributes to Chinese art at Taliesin West. This beautiful Moon Gate combines the traditional shape with the distinctive burnt orange color that Wright used throughout his western home. 


  1. This is a gate? Hard to visualise. I do not think anyone handicapped could hop over this one in order to use it. I like the stonework imbedded in the wall.

  2. I was thinking the same thing as Kate. There would come a time when it would be a struggle to get through it.

  3. I would guess that this gate is a visual link between the two spaces. Probably not ever used as an actual doorway - but I don't know for sure.
