The Ubiquitous Chicken: In Archaeological Sites in the Middle East


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.
