Monika Kuczyńska – is a designer of decorations. She has been working for the Artistic Handicraft Cooperative “Ceramika Artystyczna” since 2007. Monika is a Graduate of the University in Zielona Góra – the Artistic Faculty. “In my designs I combine the tradition of Polish folk art with symbols. The variety of colours and unique interpretations are my inspiration to create new decorations. When I painted the Roosters decoration, I focused on its symbolic meanings.”
In China, the Rooster has been a symbol of honesty, luck and fidelity. In the Christian religion, the Rooster signified the resurrection of Christ. As a popular image on the steeples and domes of churches, the rooster was steeped in symbolic meanings that deal with watchful vigilance against evil. In Judaism, the Rooster was an emblem of gallantry and honesty. During the French Revolution the Rooster became the symbol of France.
