An Islamic Legend says that The Prophet found a rooster in the first of the seven heavens. The bird was so large its crest touched the second heaven. Its crow roused every living creature -- except man. Judgement day would come when this celestial rooster ceased to crow.

The sarimanok is a legendary bird of the Maranao people of the Mindanao island of the Philippines. Manok is the Philippine word for chicken. The sarimanok is often rendered as a fanciful (...err) cock and is a symbol of good fortune and that has become an ubiquitous symbol of Maranaw art. It is depicted as a fowl with wings and feathered tail, holding a fish on its beak or talons.
