Two stunning compositions of this proud bird are detailed with complete step-by-step instructions in this hour long video lesson. Looking at the Rooster you can sense its proud nature in its stance, gait and actions. In Chinese culture, the Rooster symbolizes a couple of very positive traits. First, it is a symbol of hope and vitality, since its crow drives away the despair and evil associated with darkness. Secondly, it is seen as a protector, because it eats some poisonous insects often associated with evil. In this DVD, Ning takes you through two magnificently colorful bird compositions that not only capture the gesture but also honor the spirit of such a revered creature.
