No one's going to shoot anyone down in flames for an opinion. In fact, yours is yet another reason for Pagoda's. Yes, they are Temples of Worship also. That's where the Buddhist element comes into play.
But I agree with you 100% (now that you mentioned it)...this one does have a spiritual interpretation in it's presentation...very peaceful to the eye...now I love it even more. Have turned mine to the angle of one of Lisa's photos with the door more to the right...looks sensational! It's a WoW!
As far as "Blingy" goes, there's just enough to keep everyone happy...not overdone...understated elegance. Am extremely happy with it...hope you see one in person...you'll understand it better. And it's a piece you have to understand to appreciate...sort of grows on you...nicely.
Happy New Year, Jacky, and everyone else....
