EDITORS COMMENTS
This vibrant and historically significant print captures the "National Symbol of the French Republic" in all its glory. Created in 1903 by an anonymous artist from the French School, this colour lithograph showcases a powerful representation of France's identity. The focal point of this artwork is a majestic rooster standing tall amidst a backdrop of symbolic elements. The rooster, known as the Gallic Rooster or Le Coq Gaulois, has long been associated with France and represents courage, vigilance, and national pride. Its colorful plumage exudes strength and resilience. Surrounding the proud rooster are various heraldic motifs such as flags, arms, and armoiries that further emphasize France's rich history and heritage. These symbols evoke notions of honour, homeland, and unity within the nation. Interestingly, while it may come as a surprise to some viewers, this particular composition predates the official adoption of certain elements by France until 1953. The fasces (a bundle of rods symbolizing authority) and axe were already being used earlier but became officially recognized later on. Displayed against a bold tricolore background representing liberty (blue), equality (white), and fraternity (red), this image serves as both a visual celebration of French culture and an enduring reminder of its values. It stands as an iconic testament to France's unwavering spirit throughout history.
