I think someday I would like to build a house that is designed completely around one of these. Pennsylvania-based artist Derek Bernstein creates these spectacular cat and mouse bronze door knockers using traditional lost wax casting techniques. The results are haunting and stunning.


Each piece is unique, signed and numbered. They are designed for use as a functional door knocker or as a wall sculpture. Quite an investment at $950 and up, however, I guarantee none of your neighbors will have one!
