Modernist Door Guardian Door Knocker by Marte Cellura Antique Brass Vtg Gargoyle
Vintage door knocker designed by ny sculptor marte cellura. It was produced in 1992 and serial numbered 81. From the artist's statement: the'door guardian' is a contemporary piece of sculpture designed to be both a contemporary figurative sculpture for the door and as the finest door knocker. You are also an important part of the sculpture.

The'door guardian' is considered a contemporary classic piece of functional sculpture that is in museum collections, art galleries and important residences across the country and in europe. About the process: this signed, limited edition sculpture is cast in solid silicone bronze and is polished and patinaed by the artist and his staff. Based on the classic gargoyles and the elaborate door hardware of europe's castles and churches, the guardian both invites friends and warns intruders that someone is forever vigilant of the entrance of your home.

As the artist originally intended, the eye may be used to house your door's peephole or it may be left as-is. The example listed here is in perfectly functional condition. It's nose and mouth swing back and forth to double as the striker while the chin doubles as the strike plate. Obvious patina from age and use is present.

8-1/2" tall by 4" wide by 2 deep. This item is made of metal and brass, bronze.
