When did someone patch them up? How many layers of paint do they have, peeling off in places to reveal a myriad of colours and provenance behind them?

What secrets do they hold?

Aldous Huxley mentioned doors in this quote, which I found on this site, and I think old doors hold true as “doors of perception”:
