Item Katazome Textile, Japanese Rooster Motif

Unusual Rooster image, rarely found on textiles.

In historic Japan the rooster was an important symbol that heralded the breaking of dawn with its crowing. Its sound was thought to drive away evil spirits as the light of day melted away the darkness. The rooster is a component of the twelve animal symbols in the Chinese zodiac, the tenth creature.

The white rooster is an auspicious symbol in the Japanese Shinto or shrine tradition. As a sacred symbol, it is allowed to run freely in Shinto temples where its morning call is thought to awaken the sun goddess Amaterasu.
