How do you think these doors were made?

Hi folks,

I stumbled across this image of two unidentified double pocket doors online and I'm thoroughly obsessed. Are any of you familiar with these doors? They look Art Nouveau to me. Do any of you have any insights on how they were made or know the maker? I'm wondering if the carving was done with a scroll saw???

Do you know that they are carved? Could they be molded plastic?

The "carving" appears to be identical for each opening size.

For just a little more, you can do it yourself.

I have no info other the picture. The design could be molded plastic or a laser cutting, but I'm hope, hope, hoping the design is a old fashioned wood work. It's so purdy. Thanks for the comments, Darkmoor and Ed h.

Wow. It's not every day you learn of a design aesthetic. I was in Zanzibar many, many years ago and I remember marveling at the stone cuttings around the ancient doors there, which is apparently filigree. It's funny how things can stick with you long after the memories fail.
