Year of the rooster
© Shimada Kôhô

1000: Year of the rooster (Koho)

An auspicious picture for the Year of the Cockerel. All the usual good-luck elements are here: Mount Fuji, shô-chiku-bai (pine, plum, and bamboo), and cherry blossom. The cock stands proud, with his enormous long tail, while the faithful hen broods over their three chicks.

The artist Shimada Kôhô was born in 1952, in Gifu, and specialises in painting birds in the traditional style.

He signs and seals his paintings with his given name, Kôhô only.
