ENGLISH ROMANESQUE: Back of Durham Cathedral. Here we also see an early appearance of a "rose" window. The pointed arches also hint at the Gothic style but note the heavy buttresses supporting the weight of the walls. This is still a Romanesque structure.
Troia Cathedral Doorknocker. Part of an elaborate bronze door made in 1119, Troia Cathedral, Italy. Unlike the Sanctuary Knocker at Durham Cathedral, the dragon here looks almost friendly. In terms of their concept though, the two knockers have something in common.
