Cute vintage sculptures of a rooster and hen, this beautiful vintage decorative figurine or Okimono in Japanese is hand-made by a famous Japanese artist, Saegusa Soutarou.

It's very ornamental and can also be used as a paperweight. Very beautiful metal sculpture with a unique expression and line. Green, golden, and silver reflections.

The rooster is the tenth symbol in the Japanese Zodiac. As a rooster is associated with gain, it was considered as a lucky animal for business. This symbol represents 'kindness' and 'hospitality'. Roosters are quick-witted, efficient, and confident. They thrive on challenge and change, and are devoted to work. On the negative side, they have a suspicious nature and can be quite aggressive to others.
