“Cock Fight" is one of Haitians favorite past time. Like soccer, cock fight is very sacred to the Haitian daily routines. During the fights, wages are normally placed on the cocks. Most of the fights sometimes lead to the destruction of one animal. The painting is a watercolor and is fully guaranteed to be original work of the artist.”
