Description by Dr. Z. Kenan Bilici. Excerpt, "One of the most remarkable examples of the Anatolian Medieval Islamic metal works is the bronze cast door-knockers from the Cizre2-Great Mosque, that are in the form of a dragon.

In accordance with the inscriptions, the mosque was built by the Musul Atabegs in 1155-11603. The door-knockers on the double winged doors, each of dimension 3.00 x 1.12 m. have attracted attention of many researchers. Furthermore, the origin of the dragon figure, its iconography and usage in the Anatolian Seljuk period have also been subjected to various analogical studies."
