Gargoyles and other faces were a popular motif.
These two Eygptian faces seem to be a very similar design but made from different materials.

Lions were very common and came in many forms.
|This one seems very old.|
|Not sure if this has a lion face or it's just very ornate!|
Iron seemed to be the most popular material - although I am not positive all of these are iron -
wonder if some of them could be bronze?
|This was the smallest doorknocker that I saw|
One of the doorknockers below seems to be copper,
but the most common material after iron was brass.
Not sure what material this one is made from. Looked kind of rusty.
Italy is full of amazing visuals and I could go back again with a good
camera and just take photos of all of the design details.
