Photograph of the doorway of the Dueñas Convent, built in the 15th century in Salamanca, Spain. The arched doorway is bordered by an architrave at its top half and flanked by pillars carved in relief. Above the door, a statue of the Virgin and child stand in a recess flanked by heraldic shields. A clam shell with a Cherub's head above it tops the whole feature.
