Brass
11 1/2" x 6 1/2" x 7 1/2" (29.21cm x 16.51cm x 19.05cm)
Property from the Ramon and Cecille Blanco-Mitra collection
Ramon V. Mitra, thence by descent
Ramon V. Mitra, former Speaker of the House, senator, and statesman, was an avid fighting cock aficionado who bred and developed his own crossbreed line of Oriental gamecock -- Mitra 54, Mitra 55, and Mitra 56 -- that successfully defeated other Western breeds. The sculpture by Saprid, so rightfully representative of Mr. Mitra, has witnessed turning points in history, being by his desk for a very long time.
