The Lion Head Door Knocker is sand-cast in solid brass and is finished with a high polish to bring out the beauty of the design. Brass and bronze are copper-based alloys. The yellow brass alloy used in many of Michael's designs contains 70% copper and produces a warm, traditional brass look. Red bronze contains almost 85% copper. This additional copper content gives the bronze alloy its rich, reddish undertone. The mirrored finish of polished brass and polished bronze is achieved through varying degrees of sanding and buffing. Michael uses these techniques to highlight or accent the raised areas on a piece. The Lion Head Door Knocker was designed by Michael Healy, an accomplished Rhode Island artisan known for his Unique Door Knockers. The Lion, a symbol of majesty and grace, has been used since ancient times as a sculptured guardian of hearth and home.
