Ah, the ubiquitous chicken. Found on nearly every continent, except for the largely inhospitable landmasses, which are more prone to housing penguins.
In addition to being a big fan of chickens, I’m also an avid traveler. I love the art and culture of other countries. So when I or my friends travel, one of the missions is to locate a chicken, shadowbox size, done by a local artisan, in a style that is particular to that region.
Here is an unusual find of that nature that combines three of my interests: chickens, local artisans, and archaeology. It’s a chicken pull-toy from an archaeological site in Israel.
