The rooster atop the Vandenweghe Family tomb in Metairie Cemetery in New Orleans, most likely represents vigilance and awakening.
One can also imagine how the rooster crowing at the first rays of sunlight in the morning can also symbolize the resurrection.

Thank you so much for your comment and thank you for following my blog. If you search my blog you will see that I have written some posts from a few of my trips to Australia, specifically Melbourne and Cheltenham.
Correct spelling of cemetery seems to be Metairie Cemetery
Thank you–I always need a good editor!
