The Anurag guys and I

When I went down to MN a few weeks ago, I got some photos from the Anurag guys, Here are a few from the early days of our association.

I'd love to have a door - any door - that looks like that! It's gorgeous. By the way, what is a sand cast mold, and what is this particular mold of/for?

A "sand-cast mold" is a negative cast of an object made with 1) sand, of course and
2) some sort of binder to "hold" the sand in the "volume of space" that surrounds any object.
3)The "object" is then removed, after the sand has taken the form of the "space" around it.

When bronze is poured into the "space" left behind by an object, in the solidified sand, then the "object" is recreated.
No; I don't know what this particular mold contained.
