In Chinese symbolism, 'Cockerels' represent the warmth and light of the universe.
Often a feather of a cockerel was placed on the chest of the deceased,
to awaken them at first light for their journey to the afterlife.
The white cockerel is considered a guardian against evil,
while the red cockerel is a guardian against fire.
