in anticipation of more statues of cocks to commemorate the coming chinese new year of the cock.

courtesy of this blog which told me of singapore starting off the year of the cock with a huge statue of a cock. singapore is doing a lot to celebrate this year from lanterns, to coins, and i am sure angpows with the cock motifs on them.

i think we shall have a fun year with all the allusions to cock in the coming chinese new year. haha. it is the year of the red fire cock.  i do hope people will use it to have a laugh , as the lord knows we could all do with something to laugh . i am hoping a lot more countries start putting up statues of the cock.

it is a magnificent bird and one not afraid to crow its praises every morning.

here is another cock image from china

'Hahn/Cock' (2013), Katharina Fritsch, installed in on the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square in 2013.

this cock statue in trafalgar square has been replaced by a thumb ups hand. pity that as a cock statue would be most appropriate this year.

i can understand that if u have to pay £1000s for that fashion item, u dont want it to date so quickly 1 year later. fashion conscious people wont want to wear something so obviously out of date next year.

though i remember i did buy gaultier that are distinctly that season, (this was in those olden days when i was a fashion victim haha) because even though it dates it, i think they are so distinctive, it is quite an inverse upmanship to be able to wear it years later as it will become instantly recognisable and a classic.

but a cock design is rather risque, and some might say common and vulgar. but it is very dolce and gabbana. they like to tease and shock because their clients are so rich, those clients can afford to have fun with their clothes and be playful with it even though it might set them back £1000s. 

though if it were done outside the high end fashion houses with their sky high prices say , if primark would do something like this, i might be tempted to buy , just for the fun of it.
