Symbolism is offered in the substance itself of the earth and the vine, two of the most important symbols of Christian art.
In the Book of Job there is a cock a symbol of common sense that comes from God, Who has put wisdom in the heart ( = IBIS ) and who gave spirit ( = rooster ) sense ? They are two birds, which were given a prediction: Ibis unmistakable predicts the rising of the Nile, the cock predicts the birth date. As the Messiah he announces the day that follows the night.
Therefore, the cock´s character appears on the bell towers of churches and cathedrals towers.
This position at the top of the sanctuary talks about the predominance of the spiritual in human life , the heavenly origin messianic enlightenment vigilance of the soul that seeks to reveal the fading night darkness first light of rising spirit. Clay and man. Knead into indivisible whole.
As a potter seemed right ... and sometimes as it seemed just clay.
