Glossy, sculpted black bronze door knocker in the form of a man and two horses standing on a large shell. In the middle is a nude, muscular man with curly hair and a curly beard. He raises an upside-down trident in his right hand. With his left he touches the tail of an animal that has the head and front legs of a horse, but a long, mermaid-like tail. Another mer-horse creature is on the other side of the man. Their tails are symmetrically curled behind the man. He stands on their crossed front legs.
