BOSTON (CBS) – The Patriots are knocking on the door of a sixth Super Bowl crown. And what better way to do that than with a Bill Belichick door knocker?

A Rhode Island artist turned Belichick’s infamous hoodie and headset scowl look into a piece of art.

Palmer Murphy said he watched the movie “A Christmas Carol,” and realized Belichick’s resemblance to Jacob Marley’s door knocker when the coach pulled down his headset.

“He flipped it down and I thought ‘Hey that could be a door knocker,’” said Murphy.

Murphy created two Belichick door knockers.

One was sent to the Patriots offices at Gillette Stadium, though he’s not sure if the coach himself has seen the creation.

“They’d probably be afraid to show it to him,” Murphy laughed.

A second door knocker will be sold online, with 10 percent of proceeds going to the Wounded Warrior Foundation.

“He’s got to be a big Patriots fan if he’s got a Bill Belichick door knocker,” said Patriots center David Andrews when asked about the creation.
