The richly colored doormat features the coat of arms from Harry Potter. The escutcheon displays the mascot of each of the school's four houses: the Gryffindor lion, the Slytherin serpent, the Ravenclaw eagle and the Hufflepuff badger. Beneath the shield is a banner with the school's motto, Draco Dormiens Nunquam Titillandus, which, translated from Latin, means "Never tickle a sleeping dragon." This indoor use doormat is made of a high quality, long lasting nylon fiber and includes a thermoplastic rubber backing to make sure it stays in place. Measures about 24-inches in diameter.
