Spirited Away

That photo of the entrance to the Egyptian Avenue at Highgate cemetery (below) is reminding me of the doorway that leads to the "Underworld-ish" bath house in Hayao Miyazaki's anime movie, "Spirited Away". Talk about an excellent, weird, surreal movie! And the girl's parents get turned into pigs - very Homer's Odyssey! Pigs are sacred to the chthonic Greek goddesses, Demeter and Persephone. I can't find a good image of the doorway, so only those who have seen the movie will know what I'm talking about. Here are some pics that almost do the job that I want anyway.
