A robust rooster sits on a thick branch surrounded by leaves, buds and flowers. Two fruits (like pomegranates) on a stem occupy the central area at left, nestled within a circle of heavy foliage. The rooster seems a part of nature, sometimes almost disappearing, only to reappear again with vivid force. Its fine flurry of feathers are nicely delineated, as are the various plants and flowers, growing together in an inextricable whorl of floral life. This mosaic has been reconstructed using ancient and modern materials.
