Beautifully carved with swelled body and detailed comb, wattle, eyes, and tail feathers, with legs and claws fashioned from iron. The comb and wattle painted red, while the remaining body and tail profusely dotted with white paint (now patinated to an oyster color) that is "dimensional", i.e. thick enough to be felt, with the underlying body having taken on a wonderful nut-brown patina.
