Cast Iron Rooster

Cast Iron Rooster

Cast iron roosters are a great decoration on the farm, or anywhere people just like the looks of one. They are sturdy, and can be used as door stops. A flat cast iron rooster can be made into a weather vane.

It’s a nice country motif to use just about anywhere.

In Chinese decorative arts, pictured animals are representations for various aspects of life. The rooster is considered a symbol of reliability, epitome of fidelity and punctuality. Also, the rooster is a symbol of advancement.

A red rooster is supposed to protect your house from fire.

A white rooster not only protects your house from fire, but will chase away demons.

A set of five roosters is supposed to remind parents to educate their sons (and hopefully daughters as well).

So paint those roosters the appropriate color to get a Chinese twist on your cast iron rooster!
