Fazerin kukko / The Fazer Rooster
The Fazer Group donated 'The Fazer Rooster' to the City of Helsinki as a part of its 100th anniversary celebrations. The work belongs to the collections of the Helsinki Art Museum. 'The Rooster' is located in front of Fazer's famous café on Kluuvikatu. It was unveiled on September 17, 1991. The bronze sculpture is a stylized Fazer symbol, a rooster. In fact, it is so stylized that it invites the viewer to see other forms - someone has suggested that Weckström used a cervical vertebra of an elk as a model.
