"Le Coq" Sculpture by Roger Capron

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A highly stylized figure of a rooster by the great French ceramist, Roger Capron. Marvelous reduction and development of the familiar forms that make up the body of a rooster. One is particularly drawn to the rendering of the bird's two sets of claws as a single ring of large talons encircling the base, the exaggerated comb and wattle framing a minimal head, the representation of the tail feathers as an almost architectural canopy.
