Haan (Cock) by Jan Snoeck (1927-2018), Dr. J. Presserstraat corner Escamplaan.
The sculpture was placed in 1984.
Snoeck was a prolific artist who made many sculptures for public space, many of them with his recognisable tiles in lively colours.
In spite of their popular outlook his public sculptures (like this one) usually are a bit edgy as well.
This one, a bit tucked away in the bushes at an anonymous street corner, clearly needs some thorough restoration for its original shiny brilliance to return.
