Franz Hagenauer liked to experiment with different materials. He took an enamel class at the Wiener-Kunstgewerbeschule and was fond of working with different techniques. In the 1940ies he discovered a technique that involved filling the spaces between his brass sculptures with colorful resin. He mostly produced animal depictions or religious subjects with this craft.
Our colorful rooster is from that time. It is made out of brass, filled with resin and partly lacquered in black. Because of the nature of the material the resin shows two small und two larger cracks.
