It appears the only entrance to the Bok Tower in Lake Wales, Florida is this beautiful brass door.  Its polished to a bright golden shine.  It has the creation of the world carved onto it in detail.  It leads into the first level of the tower the “sanctuary room”.

Here is the tower base and arched door reflected in the water:

Closeup of the door using a longer lens as they would not let you go near to that side.  I would LOVE to enter in and go inside and explore around.  And there is the intriguing red door and balcony on the next floor up, (more on that soon).

Swirly reflection of the door in the reflecting pond.  I think there was a duck nearby causing the ripples:
