Knock, knock

Who’s there? God only knows.. but don’t you think this door knocker is far too posh for the little island door? Having Googled this gracious piece of door furniture, I have discovered that it is none other than Athena, generally known as Goddess of War but also of Wisdom and guess what, Crafts, as she was celebrated as a patron of weavers, potters and sculptors. Glad she’s on our door. It has been suggested to me that a good wire brushing and a lick of black paint would work wonders. Huh? I think she’s beautiful just as she is with her salt-sprayed crusty loveliness.
