No, it is not made of gold

an ornate stairwell

That is some ornate but fake painting on wood work. It looked gaudy but is not that bad in a photograph.

This was inside of a building, which meant high ISO. The light was very low and mostly dim light bulbs. That meant a pretty low shutter speed for a handheld shot and shot wide open.
