Mr. Rooster, Built of Scrap Iron

Field review by the editors.

Iuka, Illinois

Behind a chain-link fence and facing the highway, a sculpture of a large chicken (a rooster), stands on a pair of rusting post legs. Mr. Rooster advertises a metal shop that sells wrought iron garden and lawn decorations. The rooster is more of a cartoon than a realistic rendering, with his upright corrugated comb, scrap pipe neck and white, corrugated metal body.

It may be for sale -- could make a nice tub-like planter -- but has the look of a permanent resident.
