Moosehead door knocker by Astalo Moosehead door knocker by Astalo
Special gift for my cousin and her family. (They live in Germany near Bonn..)

I forged first some steel parts and welded them together and use next also some files for making the final surface very smooth, before i attached head to the horseshoe backround. (Eyes are kind like a rivets what i made from two old nails..)

Absolutely love it. Makes me wish I had a door knocker (or that anyone ever knocked on the door...)

Thanks. I just check your gallery and think that you can probably make very nice knocker for yourself. :)
There was very interesting and creative ideas in several of your jewelry pieces.

Thanks for the vote of confidence (and the :+fav:!), but I'd have to design one and then make it, and really, it's so much easier to pine over yours, isn't it? Maybe I'll get around to it eventually though!

This is so beautiful and original! I've seen many lions, griffins and dragons but never a moose door knocker!

Thanks again for your kind words. (And the fave.)

Lol.. I have made also some plans for wyvern shaped horseshoe door knocker and it would be very exotic and unique theme at least in Finland. :XD:
Anyhow scandinavian wildlife like mooses, reindeers, bears & wolfs are really a quite popular motifs for the objects in this part of the world..
