Why did the chicken cross the road? To get to my beautiful, strutting, preening Rooster!

I love chickens, we always kept them when I was a kid. I loved to hear quiet cooing sounds the hens made when we went out to shut them in the coop for the night. But roosters, they can be mean! Beautiful, but mean.

There is a family story about my mom bouncing the feed can off the roosters head when he was chasing me. I don't remember the event, only the story. But I was afraid of roosters for my whole childhood. My rooster isn't mean, but he does like to show off.

Rooster stands 18 inches tall and is 21 inches wide, beak to tail beards. He is mounted on a board/pedistle which measures 9 by 6 1/2 inches.

He is spiral woven of straw, and his wings and tail are made of asymmetrical Welsh border fans.

The last sheaf of wheat harvested was traditionally woven into a kind of talisman, to provide a home for the spirit of the field through the winter. Which would be released back to the field in the spring. When the last sheaf is cut, the dolly complete, the Festival begins!

Modern straw artists use the ancient techiques to make blessings for home, family and special occasions. Celebrate the season, and bless your home with abundance! Or give this weaving as the perfect house warming gift.

Wheat weaving appear fragile, but last very well. I have the first ones I made almost 30 years ago. They can be dusted with a feather, or for more figorous cleaning, can be swished in light suds, rinsed and dried in it's original shape.
