Mid-Century Bronze Statue of Rooster depicts a cock crowing to announce the dawn.  Hand-sculpted and given a patinaed finish, it is a splendid reminder of the historical symbolism of the strutting bird.  The association between the rooster and the Gauls/French was developed by the kings of France for the strong Christian symbol that the rooster represents: prior to being arrested, Jesus predicted that Peter would deny him three times before the rooster crew on the following morning. At the rooster's crowing, Peter remembered Jesus's words. Its crowing at the dawning of each new morning made it a symbol of the daily victory of light over darkness and the triumph of good over evil.
