  • Chinese artists use to represent animals in motion. Here this cockerel (could also be a phoenix) seems to be falling down in a dynamic move. The iridescent inlaid kingfisher feathers are enhanced by two coral beads. This ornament could be worn in the hair or fastened on the "liang-patou" (large black satin knot).
