7 is a big number in all the free races of M.E.

The 7 stars COULD represent the Durin as he was the eldest of the 7 Dwarf lords. (Was Durin around during the fashioning of the doors?) The 7 Stars were also famous in the Dwarf tongues too were they not? I recall some mention of them being reflected in the Kheled-Zaram for some reason... But the two trees represent the two Hollin trees that stood beside the door, a symbol of the frienship between the Noldor and the dwarves of Moria.
