Outdoor garden ornament in the form of animals, together with reclaim items with animal details in them. This category also includes weathervanes.
Weather vanes are almost always in the form of an animal, usually a rooster or cockerel, and have adorned the rooves of churches, farmhouses and other buildings for hundreds of years, and have a history tracing back Ancient Greece. In the 9th Century, the pope decreed that the weather vane should feature a cockerel, as it was Christian symbol or purity, hence its use on churches. In addition, the shape of the rooster's tail is ideal for catching the wind. Although useful in determining the direction of the wind, weather vanes also have a decorative function.
