The “department” (county) of Gers has many fairs , in particular the Eauze fair, they all have inspired about forty paintings on the themes of the large roosters with tied up feet “faits aux pattes” with a fierce look and a terrible impassivity.
A poor rooster with his tied up feet appeared in one of my frame. What a lesson of humility! First rooster.
