Chanticleer


The old name for a cockerel in fable, in much the same way as Reynard is the fox. Mentioned in Chaucer and coming from the french for 'Clear Voice' - something I only realized the other day when drinking a bottle of red wine emblazoned with a proud gallic coq and called 'Chante-clair'.

Hello dear Paul :)
Always love seeing your works ...
I thought your chanticleer might enjoy seeing this rather cocky cousin of his in this marvellous Russian animation by Yuri Norstein...
