The first impression is very important for everyone, that’s why the door is one of the most important things for a home. Some decorate their door with a little sign, some with flowers BUT some are using door knockers as a decor piece (AND as a knocker too, LOL)

In my country (Israel), I didn’t see any door knockers yet, That’s why I was curious about this kind of door decor.

Why animal shaped door knockers? Because I love animals 🙂

1 – Lion

I’ll start with the most traditional door knocker: Lion door knocker. The most earlier door knockers was found in Greece and Italy, and as you guess it, it was with lion head.

As you approach to a door with this kind of door knocker, you immediately feel the strength, wealth and a wisdom spirit of a house.

The most famous one is hanging at 10 Downing Street in London.
