Brass Moroccan Star Door Knocker, available in two sizes. Hand-engraved, this brass knocker was sourced directly from the artisan at a wonderful brass workshop in Fes, Morocco. The eight-point star is widely used as a symbol in Islamic art, and is called khatim or khatim sulayman, meaning seal of the prophets, a phrase used in the Quran and of great significance to Muslims. It is sometimes also thought to have astrological origins, and protect from djinn, or malevolent spirits.
This solid brass star door knocker is the perfect thing to add a little shine and mystical symbolism to your home or office.
