Fragment of a book entitled 'Wstyd, dziecinstwo, czas... Antropologia historii' (Shame, Childhood, Time...An Anthropology of History) to be published by SENS. The author follows the historical motifs of the symbol of the cockerel as an 'ersatz' state emblem of France, a country which does not have an official emblem such as the Polish White Eagle. The article contains a plethora of fascinating and astonishing historical digressions.
