Small Lovely Gold Rooster Pendant from Thailand
Small 12mm diameter rooster pendant from Thailand. Solid 22 karat gold pendant with large 4mm loop.
Trivia point: The popularity of the rooster at Thai temples and on pendants is not because of the Chinese zodiac, as some people believe. It's because the future King Naresuan of Thai was heavily into cock fighting when he was a prisoner in Burma in the late 1500s. The Naresuan monument in Ayutthaya has hundreds (possibly thousands) of the creatures.
