TANE began to make its unmistakable roosters in 1961, from the notes of fighting roosters taken by Pedro Leites in the palenque “Cuatro Caminos”. The success of this design was such that president Adolfo López Mateos gave copies of these pieces in a silver case to the kings of Belgium Alberto and Paola, who were on an official visit to Mexico.
TANE’s roosters were also acquired by María Félix who had them in her living room table, and continuously took them to Europe to give them to her dearest friends. Their popularity grew among heads of state, royalty, diplomats and celebrities; because of their Mexican symbolism and the important artisan work that each rooster requires, from TANE’s goldsmiths.
