Rooster Totem  

stoneware, bronze Glaze  


Inspired by my grandmothers who always seemed to have a rooster or two in their kitchens.  I was told they brought luck, but recently discovered that the rooster is a complex fellow, rich in meaning.  In addition to success and good fortune, the symbol represents;

  • Eccentricity
  • Uniqueness
  • Ego
  • Lack of Fear
  • Curiosity
  • Sexuality
  • New Beginnings
  • Sun Engergy

This link has a fascinatingly thorough compilation of information on the rooster and its many attributes. It's like Totem heaven.  

Also, 2017 is officially the Year of the Rooster!
