Item details

In Hinduism, cows are thought to be sacred, and are deeply respected. Hindus do not worship cows, although they are held in high esteem. The reason has to do with cows' agricultural uses and gentle nature. Hindus rely heavily on cows for dairy products, for tilling fields, and for dung as a source of fuel and fertilizer. So, cows are seen as a 'caretaker' or maternal figure. One Hindu Goddess is usually shown in the form of a cow, who represents the earth.

In the Hindu tradition, cows are honored, garlanded and given special feedings at festivals all over India. One is the annual Gopastami festival, dedicated to Krishna and cows...

This unique sacred "Gopastami" cow door knocker is made of brass with an antique finishing and comes with 3 holes on the base plate making it easy to install with minimum requirements. The base plate is beautifully embossed with a batik design for that Bali Hindu look.

This door knocker is perfect for any door that you are looking to liven up or can be simply used as tea towel holder.
