Look at Ed Ruscha's Rooster below. There is something haunting and universal about it; its starkness and subject is iconic. You can decide on the specifics of the iconography on your own.
Painter, photographer, and member of The American Academy of Arts, Ruscha has published books of his writing and interviews and a comprehensive monograph.
Two more pieces were displayed, also by Richard Gray Gallery--Sex and Howl, with the latter resembling Rooster in theme if not color.
