Clare Haxby describes her Rooster painting as follows:
‘Rooster’ was inspired by the wild rooster or jungle fowl found widely in Bali and even still found in the kampong or Jungle patches of Singapore. Since antiquity the rooster has been, and still is, a sacred animal in some cultures and deeply embedded within various religious belief systems and religious worship. In Southeast Asia, understandings and interpretations of indigenous beliefs of the veneration of spirits and deities remain strong. Animist beliefs extend to the rooster and the cockfight, a popular form of fertility worship among almost all Southeast Asians.

The Clare Haxby Connection:
I met British artist Clare Haxby when she lived in Singapore. It was one of her “open house” days when she would open her art studio, which was located in a beautiful colonial Black & White house, to visitors. I felt an immediate connection with her art. I loved the way she portrays some of Singapore’s unique landmarks in vibrant colours. Her Buddha collection and the Botanical series equally spoke to me.
The generous use of bright colours make Clare Haxby’s paintings and fine art prints ideal objects to enhance the Feng Shui of your home.
I have chosen a few of Clare’s pieces of art to be featured on my website and would like to explain how you can use them (aka where you need to hang them) to enhance the auspicious energy in your home.
The Feng Shui Connection:
I am a strong believer in activating your friendship luck. Whether you are a child/student changing school or an adult starting a new job or moving into a new department – having helpful people in our life is what we all need!
This is a very friendly looking Rooster which in my opinion makes it particularly appealing for children. Of course the warm and bright colours add to the harmony of the picture.
This Rooster print can be a very effective friendship enhancer for the following animal signs:
- the Dragon – secret friend of the Rooster
- the Ox and Snake – allies of the Rooster
The Rooster is also a very popular symbol to ward off negativity and office politics.
