It is a bit of a puzzle as to the reason the log and rock are placed in front of the gate. I suppose the first thing to explore is, which way does the gate open?” If the gate moves outward, then what is being kept within?

That dear Watson invites another mystery to explore.

If the gate moves inward, the gate is not a barrier so does it open both in and out? If so, then I assume the log and rock are meant to keep the gate from extending outward?

Humm…
