Brown Leghorn Rooster (gallus domesticus)

This was my first commission piece. The brief was to create a very proud rooster. In order to accomplish this I decided to purchase a rooster. He became extremely tame and allowed me to examine him very closely. When his modelling contract ended we bought him a wife.

I spent six months on the original wax. The tail is constructed in several sections to give deep undercuts between the feathers. Each of the feather ribs has been pressed to stand very proud, this detail was most time consuming
